So I was inspired by Matt’s #Fridayfiveminutemap and wanted to see how fast I could make a simple map in CC3. I decided to map the Mayor’s Office for two reasons:
1. I need this map for my Rise of the Runelords game (this is the main reason)
2. I wanted something that was not too big in scope so that it would be fairly quick to map.
I am actually quite pleased the results. Using CC3, and mainly the Dungeon Designer 3 add-on (which is a must-have add-on in my opinion, it is a worthwhile investment), I was able to make the following map in about 15 minutes during my lunch break today. This even includes making a new tool for the wall I ended up using. Let me know what you think! I’m happy with my results.
My Rise of the Runelords, Pathfinder game is tomorrow night, and we are on Session 5. Last week the party had to move to a new inn since the one they were staying in burned down. So they took up lodging at The Rusty Dragon, which just happened to be next door to their old inn.
I found a really nice map online to use that was made specifically for this inn, but it is a large file and it would not load for at least one of my players. That prompted me to go ahead and make a new map using CC3. I based the foundation of the inn on the map that was provided with Rise of the Runelords, so the inn size should be pretty accurate. I only did one floor however, even though I am sure there are at least two floors.
The owner is also a bard that plays for her patrons each night. So what I decided to do was make a round stage in the center of the room, that had a stone bar that goes all the way around it. My idea here is that the owner would serve drinks at the bar, then when she decides to play, she can just hop up on the stage behind her and play for the crowd. The rest of the main hall is full of tables. Then you have the kitchen to the back and the lodging rooms to the left side of the inn. The rooms range from a cheap common sleeping area to a couple of nice private rooms in the back.
Let me know what you think!
I received some good feedback on the inn, so I made a few additional changes. Let me know what you think of this new version:
I have started running a new game this year. I decided to go with a game that is popular and would not be hard to get players for. The game I went with is Pathfinder and am I enjoying it so far. I will be posting logs and actual plays as I continue with the game. I went back to Maptool for this game, and look forward to GMing the AP Rise of the Runelords.
