Anyone know of a legal place to get the maps for The Sunless Citadel suitable for use in FG?

Outdoor and overland maps my brain can work out how to do, for some reason dungeon maps I might as well be using crayons and construction paper.

Thanks, but already checked there. Everything I can find is the same low res stuff WotC standard fare. I am not quite skilled enough to make them workable in FG.

I think my problems are twofold. First, setting myself for failure by not having enough patience to sit down read through the tutorials and watch the tutorial videos (like Xorn's), learn what it all does and practice using it by making maps...repeatedly. Second, expecting to produce great maps right off the bat. Can't make maps like what I see others previewing until I do step one...Xorn's video picked up a few more hits last night as I rewatched it a couple of times.

Btw, thanks a bunch Damned...again

Dont hold your maps up to those created by the masters. The players see what their and your imagination is telling them is there! if you have the old blue and white B/X, AD&D maps your players are still seeing cracks in the walls, dusty footprints on the floor and that cold touch.... was it just my imagination? a breeze? or something else....
The map is just another tool. Some make beautiful maps and others use the most rudimentary maps. Check out this simple map making idea - the players dont mind!
