Heroic Maps - Ysenthorp

Watermarked PDF


The frozen lands north of the Wrackleaf Hills are a harsh place to call home. Snow storms, freezing cold and icy winds produce a difficult environment - but also hardy and resourceful people. Snorri Silverspine, an adventurer keen to retire, happened to make camp in the ruins of an old fort. Making a fire in the lee of a crumbling wall, he wished there was a tavern he could sit and warm up in. And then he decided - he'd come back and build a tavern. A few years later, and travellers in the bleak wilderness were grateful to come across a tavern and a warm welcome, with Snorri at the helm. Time passed, and a few more houses appeared beside the tavern and the road, and visitors started calling the settlement 'Ysenthorp'. As for Snorri, he was happy to call himself a tavernkeep - he'll be happy to call himself 'Mayor of Ysenthorp' soon too..

A printable battlemap compatible with any RPG/Dungeon-Crawl game. Use as a standalone gameboard, or combine with any same-scale tileset.

Contents: A 20 x 30 map depiciting a small hamlet in a cold and wintery landscape. Evening is falling, and warm yellow light spills from the windows of the tavern and houses into the snowy streets. The hamlet is surrounded by a forest of evergreen trees, and built in the crumbling remnants of an ancient fort. The snowy winter village is perfect for icy adventures!

Also included is a 300dpi full size jpg, for poster printing or VTT. (n.b. gridless version only available as jpeg)

Have you considered doing an Ysenthorp by Day? Looks like a great place. Love to visit it when the sun is up...

What I'd love is some upper floors and some roofs for this map - for a Santa set-up next year ;)

These were actually deliberately single-storey buildings, but we might be able to do some snowy roofs somewhere down the line :)

Great looking maps, are these available in print?

Hi Charlie. Unfortunately not. DrivethruRPG don't currently offer paper sizes that would suit our maps. All our maps are in multiples of 10 (10x10, 20x30 etc) but all the print options for DrivethruRPG are in multiples of 6 (6x6, 12 x 18 etc). If they were to include other sizes we'd be able to increase the number of products for print.

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.
