Every month we go through our back catalog of maps and the many amazing supporters of the blog over on Patreon vote on which two should be re-released under the free commercial use license. The first release voted for in December is Krelava Manor – an older structure mostly drawn in 2015 and then completed in 2017. The map has been upgraded to 1200 dpi and cleaned up a little for re-release.

The fortified manor of Grumbrek Three-Fingers Krelava stands in the middle of the old estate, a squat three-story stone affair that seems to glower menacingly at the well-appointed homes in the area.

Grumbrek Three-Fingers is a fairly well-known dwarf in town – one of the few who doesn’t spend most or even all their time with dwarven kinfolk. Instead, Grumbrek kicked, defenestrated, and broke bones up through the criminal underground of the city and is now feared, rich, and scarred.

Krelava manor matches its owner’s disposition and is a small fortress impersonating a house, with windows only on the third floor, murder holes overlooking the front door, and all levels perforated with arrow slits. It contains no underground sections because Grumbrek doesn’t trust that other dwarves couldn’t use it to access the structure.

The 1200 dpi copy of the map was drawn at a scale of 300 pixels per square and is 12,900 pixels (43 squares) wide. To use this with a VTT you would need to resize the squares to either 70 pixels (for 5′ squares) or 140 pixels (for 10′ squares) – so resizing it to either 3,010 pixels wide or 6,020 pixels wide, respectively.
