Welcome to 0one's Blueprints!

The Blueprints product line offers you old-fashioned blueprinted maps for use in your adventures and campaigns. For each map you get a blueprint version and a standard black-and-white version. The maps are all vector-based, so you will get maximum print resolution. Despite their old-fashioned appearance, each map offers you a degree of customization by using PDF technology at its best. A small control bar (which will not be printed) on each map allows you to turn the grid on and off, eliminate room numbers, fill the walls, or not show doors and furniture.

Each product features a classic fantasy adventure location: a dungeon, a keep, a temple complex, a thieves' guild, and so on. You can use these maps as references to build your own adventures, or simply keep them at hand in case your players go in an unexpected direction during the campaign.

While offering you the best quality, these products are really cheap.

The Haunted Manor

Rising near the dangerous cliffs of Darkwood, the haunted manor is an old building made of dark rock and crimson rooftops. It is whispered that a long-dead noble family who has a strong relationship with obscure deities of the past inhabited the manor. Nearby townsfolk say the noble family unearthed something from the ancient circle of monoliths, something that changed their life. No one dares to approach the manor, even if a bold woodcutter named Isaac does live near the manor. Isaac is a strange man, though. Some people say that smugglers made their hideout beneath the manor, in the underground dock; this rumor can be confirmed by the strange dancing lights one sees during the night in and around the manor. The manor is said to be haunted because it lies empty, but, oddly, all its contents are perfectly preserved. A thick layer of dust covers everything, but no part of the building shows signs of damage. All who have tried to claim the manor haven't passed the first night inside the dark walls, fleeing the following morning with the devil at his back.

Darkwood Cliffs

An area map depicting the manor, the Darkwood cliffs, the circle of monoliths, and the woodcutter's cottage.

Haunted Manor - Ground Floor

The ground floor belongs to servants' apartments, guard barracks, the kitchen, and warehouses. A small courtyard featuring a well and a portico is located in the middle of the building. From the courtyard you can access a small chapel and the dining room, as well as the stables. Four spiral staircases lead up to the first floor and down to the dungeon. A couple of large marble-finished staircases lead to the first floor from the foyer.

Haunted Manor - First Floor

The first floor was the "noble" floor, since it features nobles' apartments with rich, marble-covered bathrooms and lush furnishings. A wide hallway, flanked by grim-looking stone statues of strange men, leads to the nobles' wing as well as to the library and dinner wing. The library remains absolutely untouched, with even some open books on the tables.

Haunted Manor - Dungeon

Part of the dungeon is now a warehouse and a dock serving daring smugglers, who didn't believe the rumors floating around the manor. Still they didn't dare to venture far into the dungeon or in the manor, using a small part of the dungeon as dock and storage. The rest of the dungeon features three crypts and some secret rooms where are hidden secrets too horrible to be revealed.

Woodcutter's Cottage and Circle of Monoliths

The woodcutter's cottage is a large wooden building consisting of one large room and a wood storage. In the large room, featuring a fireplace, a working bench, tables, and beds, dwells Isaac the woodcutter. The circle of monoliths is an ancient monument of unknown origins; it features a large area encircled by ancient standing stones and a blood-spattered altar. The blood on the altar doesn't seem too old . . .

Grid Style: This map product features both a square grid and a hex grid.
