GM's Maps #19: Mortuary Temple

GM's Maps #19: Mortuary Temple

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.

Death comes to us all, they say. It is only natural then that it would occupy so much of humanities imagination. Through all historical epochs, we have been in turns afraid of and fascinated by death. Death cults and religions that grow up around the idea of what happens to us when we die or thereafter, are common enough in our history. It is likely, therefore, that they would be common in fantasy societies as well. If anything they may well be far more common in fantasy societies where the undead are known to be a real threat and where the acts of Gods and Demigods may be seen.

The mortuary temple presented here is based very loosely on a number of ancient sites that served a similar purpose but is not directly based on any one of them. It is ideal for fantasy worlds or even for the ruins of some alien civilisation in an SF game. Perhaps it is a construction by some post-apocalyptic death cult that has grown up out of the ruins of a civilisation lost to an apocalyptic event.

In a horror RPG, perhaps it is a site of archaeological interest.

As GM take the idea and run with it wherever your imagination takes you.

This product can be paired up with “GM's Map #9 Catacombs”, simply have the stairs at area #49 of this product be the stairs at area #1 of “GM's Map #9, Catacombs” for a rather extensive catacombs complex.

Product Information

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.
