UPDATE: 2 years after its initial release, the Ravenloft battle maps have been "remastered"! Please see the Update Summary image at the bottom of this product description for a synopsis of the many improvements coming with this update.

Inside the product you'll find:

  • Full Resolution PNG files of every individual room and each complete floor of Ravenloft (with and w/o grid)
  • Those same files as 'unfurnished' variants so you can create your own castle from scratch!
  • VTT-compressed JPEG versions of every complete floor at drastically smaller file size (20MB PNG files > 1MB JPEG files)
  • 287 assets made from Ravenloft's interior for you to optionally use in your own mapmaking, including a token for Strahd himself.
  • 'DM Maps' of entire floors with labels corresponding to the module and notes included to assist in understanding Ravenloft's layout (low res example)
  • 3 Print-ready PDF files separated into letter-sized compatible rooms and larger rooms. All of these files make it instantly easy and possible to print Ravenloft's entire interior on a standard home printer.
  • A User's Guide for additional context, suggestions on use, etc.

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.

Hey man, love the product! I printed it all on photo paper (let's not ask how much that cost O.o)
BUT I have questions about area 46.

It seems to struggle to pit along side the insides of the Rooms of Wheeping. The 46.1-8 doesn't seem to be in any order either.
Also the far right of area 20 there is a hallway (also 46) but I don't seem to see it in my stuff. Did I miss a page?

Regardless, love the work you put into this and love the product!

Hi Lukas!! Glad you have enjoyed the set! I'm sure they must look incredible printed onto photo paper like that.

As far as it not fitting alongside the rooms I'm not quite sure why that would be. If you look at the DM map or Full floor file(s) for the Rooms of Weeping you can see how its intended to wrap around those floors if that helps at all. Perhaps for physical play it would be easier to have area 46 beneath the other rooms so that they're individual cards can overlap when working with imperfections of physical pieces, bumping the table, etc. Totally agree that the enormity of area 46 (as well as the catacombs) and they're resulting separated pieces can be confusing when printing + combining. I've added a to-do item to make an 'assembly guide' image for both of those for the future--thank you for bringing that to my attention!

The hallway leading to the other parapets east of K20_2 is not included as it is that hallway that leads to the much larger OUTER walls that border the exterior...See more

91 pages. Doing it at staples in Canada on 65lb cardstock is like 45$, 65$ for the 100lb

I also have noticed that for the DM maps on room K23, the stairs that lead down to K62 isn't marked as such. The label does exist the other way around though.

You are correct! Thanks for noticing this; I've put it down in my 'errata' for things to change/add/update on this the next time I'm able to come around to this project. And to answer your other comment, no room exists currently for the small area beneath crypt 14 (also added as a to-do item in the errata)

Hey Anders! Those should already be available for printing (without any conversion necessary) in the "Castle Ravenloft Print 3.pdf" file

Has anyone else had problems with printing? I used 8.5x11 cardstock and it came out with the squares at 15/16ths of an inch.

Is that wedding bells I hear?! Because I think I love you! This is an absolute life saver and I cannot even begin to imagine how much effort and dedication this took! Thank you for being so awesome. Two things, how do I tip on this thing, and can I share this in a way that draws people to come purchase it also? I just love you!

Having trouble aligning these to the roll 20 grid, how many pixels should it be in the alignment tool?

Hi Peter! Pixels per square should be 150

Print 3 bugs:

The document size is showing up as 8.3x11.7 instead of 8.5x11. When I print it on letter sized paper everything is about 10% smaller than on the other files. The only real issue so far is that the Chapel doesn't line up with K14, k17 and K16

Hm... what's even weirder is I went to go verify this issue and on my end the PDF is reading as 7.8x10.1 inches, not what you're describing. But either way wrong. Thank you for bringing this to my attention! I'll get it resolved as soon as I'm able to.

Hi what is the scale on this 1sq = 5ft? That seems small...
Customer avatar
Venatus M December 17, 2020 9:24 pm UTC
CREATOR
Hi Jessica! Yes the scale is 1 square = 5 feet as that's what is considered standard for tabletop encounter scale. It's set to match the exact size of the castle itself as it's described in the 5E module, though as you'll see comes with gridless variants if you prefer to overlay a grid of a different size ratio.

Castle Ravenloft maps bugs:
*. Dungeon level - Crypt 7 should have secret room inside;
*. Dungeon level - K82 Marble Slide is missing;
*. Larders level - K79 Western Stairs is missing;
*. Larders level - K61 stairwell down to Dungeon is missing;
*. Main level - K19 should be on big map instead of K13, which is non encounters dead end;
*. Main level - K64 should have two stairwell entries;
*. Spires level - K49 should have two stairwell entries;

Allow me to address each of your points!
Crypt 7 -- Doesn't have a secret room? I assume you may be referring to the secret compartment under a skeleton there, which isn't realistic to include visually without giving the secret away.
K82 -- Intentionally omitted and is explained in the Read Me PDF.
K79 -- Intentionally omitted and is explained in the Read Me PDF.
K61 -- Has a downward spiraling staircase, not really sure what you're talking about here.
K19 -- You say it should be on the big map... which it is?
K64 -- Has the two stairwell entries.
K49 -- Doesn't have any stairwells? It has two doors that lead to K47 (which does have two stairwells) and K50 (a bedroom)

Is it possible you're looking at the older (outdated) versions of the castle? Might explain a couple of the points you outline.

All comparison is based on the book: Expedition to Castle Ravenloft 3e.
*. Crypt 7, page 120 and tactical encounter on page 184: "In a secondary crypt accessible through a secret door..."; Still issue.
*. K82 - yes I agree, thanks!;
*. K79 - no need for full length stairs. But at least beginning should be present. Still issue.
*. K61 should have two ways - up to Main and down to dungeon. Your version has only one. Critical.
*. K19 - I'm talking about C - Main Floor.png which I printed fully on a banner.
*. K64 only has one stairwell on A - Dungeons & Catacombs.png which I printed fully on a banner.
*. Not K49 but K48 near K54, K55 and K56. This floor should have up and down stairs. But only has one on G - Spires Pt2.png

Downloaded new version - indeed has many fixes.
*. Crypt 7, page 120 and tactical encounter on page 184: "In a secondary crypt accessible through a secret door..."; Still issue.
*. K82 - OK;
*. K79 - no need for full length stairs. But at least beginning should be present. Still issue.
*. K61. Fixed.
*. K19. Fixed.
*. K64. Fixed.
*. K48. Fixed.

Ah I see, this is your problem then; the maps here are made to fit to the 5E version of the castle found in the Curse of Strahd module, not it's 3E counterpart. I'm sure you'll likely stumble upon a handful of other small discrepancies like the on you point out in Crypt 7.

I will be running the Curse of Strahd in the next couple of weeks. Just wondering when Gordan A and Josh B's items will be addressed Venatus M.

Hey Cesar, to be frank Josh's item appears to be a user error because there is no such sizing discrepancy. The parapets are sized to be the exact same as any other room in the castle. Similarly I have no plans to change anything in regards to Gordon's feedback; the labels are included on the printout to keep the prints organized for a DM. Cutting them out and using them as tiles is exactly as they're intended to be used (as pictured in the preview). Anyone is free to write a room label on the back if they wish, but a double-sided PDF would be superfluous and make an already somewhat unwieldy file size even more so.

I've just printed out all the printable maps. I suggest that it would be nice to include the room number on the reverse side (not the name). As I will be cutting these out and using them as tiles having the description on the tile does, in some instance, give away the room. Just a thought

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.
