I'm re-starting an old module I started years ago. One main section has an assult on a "Bodiam-Castle" style castle.

I'm not good enough yet (only a couple days ago I found this site) to vreate something like that. I've been trying, but I currently lack the skills.

You can easily google "Bodiam-Castle" for thousands of pictures and information.

I was also wondering how to download some of the user pictures that I see here? I thought I had read the FAQ's, but still not sure I understand how to change the BMP files into PNG's other then "save-as" then use like photoshop to convert to PNG. Is that how to do it?

Thanks in advance for anyone interested in taking on this challange 8-)

Use any browser other than Internet Explorer, and the downloaded art
should retain its PNG format and transparency.

A good site with lots of pictures of Bodiam Castle can be found here.

A castle is always a nice challenge. I think there might be several people out there willing to take a stab at it. If not, contact Bludragn. He's done quite a few castles already.

Personally I use FireFox as browser and I believe most people on here use that (on Win PCs of course).

Isn't this the castle in England surrounded by a huge moat? I think I've been there. I wish I still had the photos. <sigh>

Not sure if the site is ok with this or not, but I'm willing to offer a prize for a contest to build this so that I can use it in my module ... Not sure what I can offer, but I'm very active and if the winner ever ends up in my neck of the woods (S California) I could take them on some type of adventure ... Skydiving, Drifting, Hand-gliding, Flying, etc?

Or I could offer something else as a prize if someone could come up with something? I also have a TON of old D&D stuff that is hard to fnid ...haha.

Thanks again so much for all the help 8-)

Hey gstg, here is a basic layout of the 1st floor of the sketch I found for a Bodiam style castle.

This is just a starting point. Do you want the castle to be abandoned, or Lived-in? Do you want no furnishings, Just the basic furnishings, or all the furnishings?

Do you need anything special in any of the rooms?

Do you want it surounded by water, with or without bridge?

The plans are for 3 floors. Do you want all 3 done up?
I can finish the 1st floor this weekend but it may be a while to do all the floors.

Wow!! ... great job. Thanks. I was thinking mostly of bottom with simple straight bridge (as opposed to the real "L" shaped. THe module calls for an castle assault. So I'm mostly looking for land / bridge / moat for the assault.

What you've already done awsome. Just off center will be a well and bucket. I can find that stuff. The biggest challange was the outline and main settings, which you created 8-)

Here is the finished first floor complete with moat and bridge.
I put in the main furnishings but restrained myself from to much detail.

Hope this is what you had in mind.

The full size map (2.9 MB) can be downloaded from RGPmapshare.com by clicking the link:

This is awsome! Thanks so much. Can I get the DJA file somewhere? I downloaded the actual map from the link. It's really great. I want to add some minor tweaks to it (or at least try to ...haha) specific to the campaign.

I also sent you an email thanks as well 8-)

Thanks, glad you like it.
The .dja file is 1.9 mb so I can't post it here.
I could email it to you but it probably won't do you much good.
Most of this is user art and I have a unique file structure.
If you loaded this dja in your computer all you would get is outlines and a lot of blank spaces

Your best bet is to tell me what you want (be very specific about what and where) and I'll add it in for you.
If you have specific art pieces just post them here and I'll download and use them.

Are you going to be printing the map or using a virtual table top like Battlegrounds?

Here is a second version closer to the way you described it for your game.
If it is ok, just let me know and I'll email the high res version to you.
If anything needs changing let me know.

Here is the ZIP of a Medium resolution copy
5E2_Bodiam-Castle-Floor1md.zip

Wow that is awsome! Thanks again so much. BTW the statue in marble arrived today of you, but it's not taking up enough of the front yard so we're having some smaller ones crafted to make up for the difference 8-)

Email would be great thanks!

This is the second floor of the castle. I left it unpopulated on purpose.
This is a map to play on, not a work of art. I just wanted the floor plan.

Medium Res ZIP
3AD_Bodiam-Castle-Floor2med.zip

Small version just to get a peek at it.

I was putzing around Google and came across this site. Reminded me of this post so I thought I'd drop a link.

Nice maps btw.
