Iron Dragon Rail Station

Chicago Iron Dragon StationFor an upcoming Deadlands: Reloaded game I mapped a fictional railway station, loosely modeled on a historical one built in 1881 (and later replaced by Chicago’s famous Union Station). The map can be used for other quasi-historical games (e.g. any Cthulhu or Pulp-genre game) where a medium-sized railway station is needed.

I first created a Baedeker-style floorplan of the station, using Campaign Cartographer 3 and its “1930s Travel Guide” style from the Annual Vol 5. It is fairly simple and painless to print, so it makes a great reference map. You can download the CC3 version of the map.

Then I went ahead and from the entrance hall section created a detailed battle mat with (Dungeon Designer 3 and Symbol Set 2) for use with miniatures.

The battle mat prints on A1 size paper and you can download it here in a variety of formats:

Dungeonslayers – The Free Lands

For the small-press German role-playing game “Dungeonslayers” I created this version of their setting map “The Free Lands” in CC3. While I did that simply as a fan, the author Christian Kennig approached me whether they could offer the map as a download on the Dungeonslayers website (for free) and also sell it as a printed poster map. We quickly agreed on a deal, and the map can now be purchased via their web-shop.

Dark Fantasy Symbols

I finally got around to updating the old Dark Fantasy symbols to CC3 and decided to make them available for free.

Dark Fantasy Symbols - Some Structures

The set contains more than 500 Mountain, Vegetation and Structure symbols, geared towards a slightly “darker” fantasy setting. You can download them from here: Maps and More “Dark Fantasy” Symbol Set.

Simply run the exe file (Windows 7 and Vista users right-click and choose “Run as Admin”) and it will add the symbols to your CC3 installation. See the readme file for instructions how to use them

Enjoy!
