This product contains 75+ files for nearly every individual room in Castle Ravenloft. These maps are welcome to be used for online play, but were made with particular consideration for tabletop sessions. Inside the product you'll find:

  • Full Resolution PNG files of every individual room (with and w/o grid)
  • VTT variations with lowered resolution (150 dpi) for easier file management
  • Complete floors for Castle Ravenloft for playing with the entire map, rather than single rooms (or for DM reference)
  • 2 Print-ready PDF files separated into letter-sized compatible rooms and larger rooms. Both of these files make it instantly easy and possible to print 96% of the castle immediately on a standard home printer.
  • A User's Guide for additional context, suggestions on use, etc.
  • A new set of room variants corresponding to the adventure Standing Forlorn

I made these rooms from scratch myself and used them with my own players while playing through Curse of Strahd. We found that getting to reveal rooms as they explored through the Castle was a huge boon to the discovery process and my hope is that you will enjoy using them as much as we did. If you find that this product improved your gaming experience please feel free to check out more of my maps on our website, venatusmaps.com

Please feel free to comment here or email at: info@venatusmaps.com with any questions, feedback, or concerns.

Looks like the complete map for the ground level is incorrect for area K64. This is supposed to be a staircase going both up and down. It's only drawn to go one direction.
Also the grid for Areas for K23/24 are off center on the complete map. The need to be moved to the left by 2 1/2 grid spaces. The wall of K23 should touch the wall of the stairs in K20. Lastly, the main floor complete map is missing area K19

On the complete map for Spires pt2, area K48 is also drawn to go one way but this should go both up and down. Also on the Larders of Ill Omen complete map, area K83a is missing.

On a different note, would it be possible to add the walls and towers immediately touching the main castle on the Rooms of weeping complete floor map? I've had tons of players want to explore that but no map to use. Also, could you include a image of the heart of sorrow staircase with the stairs fully wrapping around? The tower is tall enough that the stairs should spiral two full turns before you...See more

In case someone is looking for maps that actually line up in your VTT and have all the floors properly done, take a look at https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1L-PhWkkExzmid_iAhKn-_15fjpdIPDNN

I bought this map pack for the complete gridded maps to use on Roll20. The maps looked to have very nice detail, and they do. Unfortunately the grids between different rooms are not lined up. It's as if the individual gridded rooms were just copy/pasted into one image without regards to how they work as a whole. It also appears that walls are not accounted for in regards to the grids. Placing 70+ individual ungridded maps sounds horribly time consuming. I feel my money was a bit wasted now.

Hello! Nice artwork! Considering the issues with the walls and stuff it'd be nice if you could size down the grid-on version since VTT platforms usually have an Align-to-grid function. Thank you so much for the time you've put into these maps. ^^'

Can you please add a complete floors without grid lines? The grid is not universal, so it gets out of sync quickly on virtual tabletops.

Replying here since it's not possible to do in the reviews. Gridless would certainly be better if things don't line up but you'd still have to move tokens into the walls. I suppose you've just copied the single parts together and aligned them in an image manipulation program.

The proper fix would be to create the grid as a separate layer and align the individual rooms in a way that they line up properly. Then the grid and gridless combined images would work properly.

I haven't paid for the maps because of the free give away but if I did, I'd at least expect the stuff to line up properly in a VTT since I can just use a battle mat offline.

Yea, this quarantine period has been annoying. So looking forward to just having stuff printed out and not have to deal with this kinda stuff.

And yea, this is the thing I am bumping into on so many maps.

When I ran CoS a couple years ago, I spent the better part of 3 days drawing out the Castle Ravenloft maps on 1" grid flip-chart paper. It was a nightmare - though still kinda fun. If only I had this back then.

Keep up the amazing work!

Took a break from WotC products and just recently came back to some more Phandalin maps that I'll be putting up here shortly. Not a lot of maps yet for the more recent modules as WotC has not been especially receptive to recreating the b&w maps that are found in those modules.

Maybe it is just me, but it seems like K22 North and South are the wrong shape, shouldn't they not have the 2 by 2 bump out at the end and just be squares?

Thanks for pointing this out! They're in the correct shape for the main floor, but not the 2nd floor as you've noted. I'll be sure to fix that in the next update.

hi I was wondering how I would go about printing out the full maps to 1 inch grids
Customer avatar
Venatus M November 04, 2019 4:33 am UTC
CREATOR
Hi John! Apologies on the late reply here; to print out full maps of each floor on a single sheet of large paper you will want to use the files found in the folder labeled 'Complete Floors'. Simply send any of those files to the large format printer of your choosing and have it printed at 200% file size for a 1 inch grid.

I'm looking for a map to play the AD&D module I6 Ravenloft with and your map looks fantastic! Do you, by any chance, know if the map/castle is the same on the classic module as on CoS?

Hello! I have not read the original AD&D module so I can't say for sure, but by my understanding I believe them to be mostly (if not exactly) the same castles.

I don't know if it's been pointed out yet, but the Printable documents seem to be missing K15 - luckily my party diverted around his point and I have some extra time before our next session to get that one printed as well, but I wanted to make you aware!

This is intentional as the largest areas of the Castle (K15 & the Catacombs) were previously thought to be a little unwieldy for printing in 8.5x11 chunks. Due to demand however I'm working on an update to include this section as a print! I'm sure you already know, but you can just as easily print it using the K15 file from the 'Full Res' folder, just make sure you print it at 200% size for a 1 inch grid.

I have just this last session been able to begin using these in my campaign. They're fantastic! I have noticed one apparent cartography error, and wonder if you have any plans for an update.

Of course the party got ahead of my prep. They ended the session on what would have been your K20_3, the Heart of Sorrow. I had to freehand this on my battlemat, but because the session had to end mid-combat, it's the first thing I'm prepping for our next session. Your page shows this area as a 40-foot diameter circle, but the entrance landing from the span (K58) appears to be lacking the 30-foot-wide outcropping or parapet on the North Tower that doubles the width of this landing. Am I making myself clear? It's most easily seen on Map 8 of Castle Ravenloft, although the extension I'm talking about can also be seen on Map 1 (the elevation).

This minor error in no way diminishes my gratitude at having this resource, and the genuine joy my friends have moving their miniatures around this glorious tabletop...See more

Hi Heath! Okay, so after reading through your explanation a couple of times I'll do my best to understand what you're point out--I'll agree that there are a couple of squares that have been trimmed from the interior of K20 around the Heart. I would generally explain that as a translation of the (at times) problematic process of converting the isometric map to a top-down perspective, as well as because that tower is intended to be narrowing slightly as it ascends. I generally used Map 8 as a reference for creating K20 and while I can absolutely see the roof of the parapet as it's shown in Map 1, I wouldn't say that is accurately represented in its Map 8 version--one of the original issues from the module's map. It's possible that I may go back and see if I can edit K20_3 to include that section to bump out the landing a bit. Thank you for pointing it out to begin with and I hope you and your players continue to enjoy the castle!

Great product.

Since I´m currently running CoS on my table, how would I print this in A4 format?
"A4 paper measures in at 210mm by 297mm (8.26" by 11.69") whereas US Letter paper measures at 8.5" by 11" (215.9mm by 279.4mm)" is what I found (the printing guide stated that the "printing PDFs" are measured for US letter size.
Do I need to resize the PDFs somehow or how does it work?

I could print this at home or let it print in good and sturdy cardboard for cheap 40€ but want to make sure that it fits the 1" grid scale for our minis.

Hi Markus! Without having tested printing the 'printable PDFs' at an A4 size my best guess is that you should be able to go ahead and print them at the A4 size anyways and experience minimal shifting of the images and corresponding grid. The size difference is minute enough that I don't think it will be very noticeable at all, though you may want to test print 1-2 pages from home to make sure before paying to have the whole set printed. Most printing functions and/or whatever PDF viewing software you're using should have built-in settings to 'fit' the document to your printer's paper size.

Hello, could you explain how to use the K22 N & S tiles? I'm a little confused how they relate to the map in the book, thanks!
Customer avatar
Venatus M August 30, 2019 2:28 am UTC

Hi Daniel! Sure thing. The K22 room is a repeating room referred to in the module by the same label because it is effectively the same room every time the players encounter that section, regardless of time of day or what floor they're on. However they are slightly different in that they are mirrored versions of each other, symmetrically facing towards the center of the castle, hence the need for a north and south version of each. Hope that helps?

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
