Map of Roslar's Tomb - [GM's ONLY]

Hey there GM's!

When I went to upload the map of Roslar's Tomb into Roll20 this morning I was deeply disturbed at how terrible it was. Not all of the squares are equal size and the quality of the map wasn't fantastic when I tried to stretch it to fit. I quickly mocked up a replacement map to use instead. Plop this into Roll20 and set the canvas size to 3220x2030 at the default 70 dpi and it fits perfectly!

If anyone else has woes with the default map then please feel free to use this one instead! There are two versions, with grid and without grid.


And the Good Samaritan Award goes to...!

But serious, thanks. I can confirm that the other maps are definitely not as bad as that one.

That's good to hear! I was hoping to not have to make any more maps! :D


I generally have a little problem getting maps to line up in Roll20 but after a bit of work they always bend to my will. I've spent probably 2 hours on this map and have yet to get it exactly the way I wanted to. I thought it was just me!

Edit: This map took me all of 3 minutes to get lined out. Good job!

honestly this is the reason I'm using fantasy grounds. They have high resolution maps already in the game. And you get a discount when you buy the pdf. Everytime I try to port maps to roll20 they end up looking blurry and off center.


Unfortunate thing is that I've already completely set up the map in Roll20 (Dynamic Lighting, creatures, etc.); by taking the three floors as separate maps instead of all in one it made the uneven square problem tolerable--it still exists but it's at least nor super bad. After having to readjust a certain opera house map after learning that it was supposed to be 1 square=10 feet I don't feel like doing something similar in completely redoing a map another time.


Sorry I couldn't get the map done in time for you! After taking a peek at the next set of maps later in the book I'm fairly certain I'm going to end up redoing those as well. While there isn't a square uniformity question, they just aren't high enough quality for me.


I also have problems with maps on Roll20 regularly. I don't get why the maps in the PDFs tend to not have all of their squares at the same size :| I'm curious to know why.
Thank you ShadowLord for your work ! :)


Thank you for this!
