Thanks for letting me know. Also, I put some new character art in my art thread over the past few days. If you know of a workshop item that can use any of those, let me know and I'll put them there as well.

They should work with almost anything.

House of Coldarius -- Maps

Post Thu Dec 17, 2020 9:44 am

The attached zip file contains SVG files for each of the levels in this adventure (from the BF3 "Strongholds of Sorcery" book). I created them to run this module online, and figured I'd share them with the community.

The maps are fairly faithful to the originals, although probably not 100% perfect in every aspect. The files have a layout of 2560x1920px with a scale of 64px == 5ft and a transparent background. Given that they're vector files, they should scale cleanly to whatever screen resolution you'd like. I removed all the grid lines and keys from the original maps as well.

My workflow with these files is to export them to JPG and create one scene per map in the VTT. I then drag on objects from the token library to represent things like the spiral staircase, chairs, tables, etc. I created the files in Inkscape (an open source graphics program), but they ought to be editable with any tool that supports SVG.

Enjoy!

It's nice to see House of Coldarius getting some love, it's one of my favorite BFRPG published adventures.
One nit...I'd double-check your doors. Just at a glance I noticed that on Level 1 you have a double door between rooms 4 and 6 where there isn't one in the original.
Bigger question... I'm confused why you have those blank shapes of to the right of each map. Maybe they're leftovers shapes you were using to develop the maps, or maybe it's something related the format you're using? In any case, I'm not sure if it's a mistake or intentional for some reason that's escaping me.

Those shapes are my attempt to capture the geometry of the first floor of the tower. They are off the page and won't appear when you export to an image format. I kept them around to keep the sizes of things consistent from level to level. They are on their own layer of the document which can be hidden (or even deleted) if you find them annoying.

Got it. I guess if I was using those files in the way intended I would have realized that. ;)
