    Lightbulb Photoshop: H3 Pyramid of Shadows Tactical Maps

    Because I can no longer stand playing 4E D&D through FGII with low-res scanned maps, I now reproduce (as close as I can) the tactical maps for 4E adventures.

    All images are produced in Photoshop using home brew textures and effects, all maps have all DM key symbols removed and are sized for a grid scale of 50px = 5 feet.

    This is a WiP project so not all the maps have been completed (yet), however as I make them I'll upload and post here. Each one takes between 30-60 mins depending on complexity and how many re-usable elements are in place so hopefully the project should be completed inside the next 3-4 weeks (subject to available time).

    Whilst these maps replicate the encounter maps for H3, I guess you could apply them to other scenarios. Feel free to use for your own games if you like them.

    Very useful. I will happily grab these. Would you want to host them on the Wiki maybe?

    Between these images and the other stuff you have done you are getting me close to giving 4e another try.

    Just tossing it out there, but would you be interested in doing a Video Tutorial on how to create these?

    I think there would be people that are intersted to learn how.

    Thanks for the images!

    Good Job!! amazing skills you got
    Religion is an insult to human dignity.
    With or without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things.
    But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion...

    Advice?

    For those that would like to follow your lead and create hi-res maps of our own, do you have any general advice?

    Is a fanatic devotion to the Cartographer's Guild forums sufficient?
