As I've decided to run some horror scenarios at the upcoming FG Con 7, the obvious ruleset to use is Call of Cthulhu. Rather than just throw a scenario together, I've decided to full convert at least one commercial scenario to Fantasy Grounds. It's been a while since we've had new material for Call of Cthulhu.

As part of the conversion I made new maps. Here's a taster of one of them:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/39085830/Screenshots/Fantasy%20Grounds/Call%20of%20Cthulhu/The%20Davidson%20Estate%20-%201st%20Floor%20-%20Player%20Map.JPG

This was made using Campaign Cartographer 3 (https://secure.profantasy.com/default.asp) and the 1930s Travel Guides style from the April 2011 annual: http://www.profantasy.com/annual/2011/april11.html

I really like this style for 1920s/1930s floor plans - quick, easy and looks great.

Very nice map. Perfectly suits the era and style too.
I dont know if you created the whole map but servants rooms probably wouldnt be in that position but thats just me being picky :ninja:

It's a re-do of the original.

Great work! I'll run one too, so I'm improving the 7th Ed. extension.

Coolio. Its perfectly thematic. For "real life" buildings I do like the walls showing the different thicknesses etc too.

And here it is, the first new Call of Cthulhu Fantasy Grounds module for a while: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/store/product.xcp?id=CHA0321AFG

Comes with 6 pregens in Fantasy Grounds format to get you dying (sorry, investigating) quickly.

Well done Trenloe. I have added this to my queue! Actually I should just buy it now before the $AUD deteriorates any further!
