I’ve realized that people seem to love maps. And I suppose that makes sense. Those of us who play D&D online, for instance, love being able to pick up a map and load it into our game and go.
I tend to draw most of my maps myself in MapTool. Now, I’m no great artist, but MapTool makes it pretty easy to draw simple maps that look pretty good. Given that the online D&D community seems to love maps, it only makes sense that I should start sharing these on my blog.
Today, I’ll share a map from the War of the Burning Sky’s second adventure, the Fire Forest. This particular map is of a collapsing bridge. The party encounters this bridge over a deep gorge (60 feet deep) with the remains of the wagon at the bottom of the gorge. Flaming brush surrounds the area off the road, and more flaming brush lines the bottom of the canyon. A section of the bridge has crumbled away.
I’ve included both a no-grid and a square grid version of the map. Which version is more useful for you? Should I also include a PDF from PosteRazor that would let you print out and tape together the map for use at a physical table?
Please let me know if you want me to keep posting maps – I’ve got lots of them!
