0one's Blueprints: The Citadel

01 Games SKU: BLU12


Available Now!

Welcome to 0one's Blueprints!

The Blueprints product line offers you old-fashioned blueprinted maps for using 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 the PDF technology at its best. A small control bar (which will not be printed) on each map allows you to turn on and off the grid, eliminate the room numbers, get the walls filled, and don't 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 take 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 Citadel

Welcome to your favorite base of operations: the Citadel. This small citadel is a perfect headquarters for your party; also, within its walls, it may offer many opportunities to adventurers who make a home here.

The citadel flanks a river (or sea) and features a small port. Two gates lead the travelers into the walls of the citadel. Inside the citadel, you can find everything a small community needs: stables, forges, inns, a large temple area, a lord's house, gardens, wells, and more.

The citadel could be the keep of a larger city surrounding it or simply a small town, perhaps an extension of the lord's keep. The citadel features two levels (ground level and first level), and a roof level is also provided. Below the ground level, you can find a cavern complex that links with the manor's dungeons and a small sewer system.

Please note the citadel is very large, so the grid square should measure 20 feet.

Some hints to use the Citadel follow:

• Upon the party's arrival at the citadel some mysterious murders begin to happen. One of the PCs was spotted at the murder location and the entire party is thrown in the dungeon. The PCs must escape and find the true assassin to prove their innocence.

• A gang of smugglers uses the caverns north of the citadel as a base for their illegal activities. The lord is too weak to fight them and asks the party to deal with the bandits.

• A band of thieves regularly visit all the rich merchants' houses, leaving no traces or signs. The merchants offer a reward to the group who will capture the thieves and retrieve their wealth.

• During the night Kuo-Toas emerge from the murky river water; they seek something in the temple of the citadel, something stolen from them centuries ago. The local cleric hides a terrible secret linked to this item. The party is hired to protect the item.
