Encounters in Barovia


CZRPG logo

What format are the maps in? Can they be used with any VTT, or are they only compatible with FG?
Customer avatar
Christian Z July 17, 2021 11:00 am UTC
They are images, so they work in pretty much any VTT. Usually the FG compatible products have the FG logo on the cover. That logo up there is to link to the FG version.

I put them up on roll20 with ease the only map that is slightly off is one of the extra maps as it has a half square but the rest are a great size that line up perfectly i even made some of the maps bigger so some of the squares are 10 ft squares and they still line up. the new maps add even more onto it.

the 20x20 and 16x16 maps i doubled the size to make it a bit more fun and they still look great

In extra maps the Roc of mount Ghaskis, its on the right hand side of the map. Its actually not a big deal i managed to set it up correctly on roll20 as you cha add in decimals.

When adding in the Deathly Treant stats i noticed its strength is 27 which is then a +8 not a +7 which in turn then changes the slam damage to 17 from 16 and the desecrated roots to 19 from 17 as the bonus and both attacks to +11 from +10
Customer avatar
Christian Z July 15, 2021 2:02 pm UTC
Thanks for the heads up, fixing this now.
Customer avatar
Rory C July 15, 2021 6:24 pm UTC
Love the new maps in update

Customer avatar
Christian Z July 15, 2021 6:47 pm UTC

Seriously amazing, going to be working most of these into my campaign. One bit of feedback though about Woody Ambush, if the party took out the Gulthias Tree (the one with the axe stuck in it) ALL blights in Barovia can no longer exist. (when playing RAW)

Thank you! What do you say if I add a small sidebar note mentioning this?

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
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.
