I love maps. Especially maps made for role-playing games, and if that sounds like a niche offshoot of an already niche hobby then you would be right. There are many talented cartographers out there, some of whom you can find on the Map-Making in Games Google+ community. This map is my attempt at a small manor à la Dyson. You can find the map key on his website, as well. I’ve sized Chataeu Trintignant especially for use with Roll20, on a 33×20 map, and I am including versions with a grid, without a grid, and with room references for the game masters. To make sure you have the right size, you’ll have to open it in its full resolution in a separate tab.
The first floor of the chateau features a stable (1.1) off to the east. A thick, stone wall surrounds the main building, a gazebo (1.10), and a pool (1.9).
I’ve just realized that I don’t know whether people in medieval times had swimming pools. Oh well, it’s D&D, a man can dream.
Visitors of the chateau will find the drawing room (1.2), the library (1.3), the kitchen (1.4), the music hall (1.5), and the armory (1.6) on the first floor. The kitchen leads out to an outdoor dining hall (1.8), which is protected from rain and snow by an overhanging balcony; and the pantry, which leads downstairs into the cellar. Two statues—maybe of the chateau’s owner?—watch over the pool.
It’s a cellar. Wine bottles, fungus, and level-1 rat exterminator quests galore.
The staircases on the first floor lead up to the balcony proper. Two guard towers (2.1 and 2.2) keep watch towards the south for the inevitable orc invasion. There are several smaller rooms (2.3, 2.4, 2.5, and 2.6) that could act as children’s bedrooms or servants’ quarters. The master bedroom (2.7) is the spaciest room in the chateau, which is fitting for whoever was extravagant enough to build the place. Adjacent to that is the much more modest guest bedroom (2.8). More guard towers (2.9 and 2.10) flank Chateau Trintignant’s most important sleepers. A game master might want to install secret doors leading from the guard towers to either the master and the guest bedroom.
