Fortresses & Strongholds Map Set   

  What is a King without a Kingdom? What is a Kingdom without a Castle? And what is Castle without Fortifications, Secret Rooms, and strongly protected Treasure Vault or two?

  This map Set explores those questions and others with 12 Mighty Fortresses & Strongholds! (A total of 16 printable maps, 8x11 inches in size.)  At the end of a lonely road stands a mighty Fortress silently waiting to be explored by brave adventurers. Are the occupants friendly, hostile or shy? Will they lower the drawbridge as you approach and greet you with open arms? Or will they cry "HAVOC"! And let slip the dogs of war as they rain showers of arrows upon your heads from those tall and foreboding towers? 

  The Fortresses & Strongholds Map Set contains 12 highly detailed floor plans of Forts, Castles, Keeps, Strongholds and Vaults. 8.5x11 inch printable eBook pages display a great overview of their towers, moats, catapults and other battlements that will allow the game master and players to see at a glance various buildings including inns, shops, temples, and guard houses. Written descriptions become optional since you can easily see and thus describe what is in every building. This set of maps includes details such as torches, beds, tables, chairs, fireplaces, statues, thrones and of course, the most important thing - TREASURE chests! 

  As for the race, class, gender and disposition of the occupants inside that is for you as game master to decide. You can tailor each castle and it occupants to suit your own world and/or campaign. These castles can be used as dungeons to challenge adventurers, or you may choose to incorporate them into your NPC world and give your adventurers a place to rest, recover and train after their battles. Of course, should an adventurer choose to build a keep, or perhaps win one in a card game - you will instantly have one to give them.  

  This set includes the following fortresses & Strongholds: WaterWard Stronghold,,Castle Windsong, RiverGuard, Fire Mountian Stronghold, ValleyGuard Castle, Castle Dreadnaught, GreyStone StrongholdDarkGuard, Mountain Pass Stronghold, The Vault, SeaGate Fortress (2 maps), StormGuard Mountain Peak Fortess (3 maps) 

  This is a SSD universal map set and is suitable for use with any fantasy role-playing game system that uses medieval style buildings for structures. However you choose to use The Fortress & Strongholds Map Set - it is likely to provide you and your players with Hours of Entertainment, and SAVE you hours of Tedious map making. You can spend the extra time you save focusing on the more enjoyable aspects of fantasy role-playing, such as actually PLAYING the game. :))

I just thought I might chime in here. I am an old school gamer. I have been playing D&D, GURPS, RoleMaster, and WarHammer since the mid 80s. I got these maps. I printed them out. They look sharp. The most detailed I have ever seen at this sc [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
