GM's Maps #12: Mansion

Watermarked PDF

Map making can be time-consuming and sometimes frustrating for GMs, especially GMs with limited time to begin with. In our new 'GM's Maps' range, we will be providing a range of pre-made maps for you to use in your games.

Mansions, grand houses of the rich and famous, often steeped in history and dating back several centuries.

The mansion presented here is a medium to large example of a type of mansion that would have been built from the early 18th century onwards in Britain, Europe or America.

Scenario Ideas
Large houses such as this are a staple of Gothic horror since they tend to have a long history they make ideal locals for ghost stories or other tales of Gothic horror.

Similarly, mansions often feature in detective and mystery fiction. We are all probably familiar with the inspector sent to investigate a murder at a mansion house during a social gathering or country retreat.

Fans of heist drama should have no problem finding a use for a mansion map in a daring robbery stile adventure. Perhaps the party seek to steal a valuable painting from the wall or the lady of the manors jewels.

In espionage games the manor house may be the home of some nefarious agency or foil to the PCs who they seek to confront or perhaps they are out to put his house under surveillance, wiring it with listening devices or hidden cameras.

The house could make an interesting base of operations for a group of survivors in a post-apocalyptic world. Certainly, a mansion house is not as secure as a castle but can post-apocalyptic beggars be choosers?

Mystery and horror may be the commonly accepted order of the day for places such as this, but don't shy away from letting your imagination run riot and finding ways to use the mansion in any genre of play you wish.

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.
