Our names are Emma and Daniel
and we’re a pair of DM’s from humble Norway. ^^

Currently Daniel is running the main campaign for our group, while I (Emma) run one-shots in the breaks between sessions and handle music for the main campaign. A month or so back we picked up your Everything Pack together and MAN have we been blown away by the sheer amount of content we’ve been allowed to work with!

I have personally taken a liking to the massive amounts of assets, tiles and prefab buildings and used this to put together a sprawling three-story mansion for a recent heist one-shot. The Margaster mansion lies on the outskirts of Silverymoon of the Forgotten Realms and is owned by a married couple of retired adventurers. Together they hold parties where they display and sell off their wide array of artistic and magical creations as well as many curiosities from their adventuring days.

The party infiltrated the mansion during one said party, splitting the party in two with one group mingling with the partygoers and proprietors and a second group navigating the many alarms, magical traps, illusions, animated defences and the staff of the mansion to uncover how to open the force-vault installed on the top floor of the mansion. It was a wonderful and memorable night of intrigue, close calls and eventually chaos as plans started to crumble.

I learned a lot during the lengthy creation of the mansion and I can’t wait to use my new-found skills as well as the many techniques I’ve learned from your Discord to create even better maps!

Daniel on the other hand has already used a few of your battlemaps in the main campaign and is currently putting together custom battlemaps as well as area maps (In Wonderdraft) for the next leg of the main campaign; dancing with slavers, cultists and corrupt nobles in the city of Yartar.

For spoiler reasons I haven’t seen much of his works yet, but the few peeks I’ve gotten have already blown me away and I’m very excited to see everything he’s worked on during the session this Saturday.

We’re both very thankful for your creations and are super excited to see what you come up with next ^^ Keep up the good work!

With love,

Emma and Daniel <3

  1. Thank you so much for posting these! I love your maps but the Margaster Mansion map will specifically help me as I need a “gorgeous mansion converted into a school for healers.” Many thanks!

  2. Awesome Work Daniel.

    1. & Emma

  3. These are fantastic maps Emma and Daniel! I will definitely be using the mansion map in my game – thank you so much for sharing your brilliant work!

  4. Magnificent!!!! I love the mansion, the attention to detail is awsome. Also, I’m borrowing your idea of translucent tree tops, I think it’s awsome, didn’t think about it while making my own maps and allways struggle with the visuals when ingame.

    Great job you two!!!

  5. Brilliant. My party need a mansion once they’ve finished Storm King’s Thunder!!

  6. What software is using to assemble all your token togerther to make a map similar to that?

    1. I for one use Photoshop/Gimp – I’ll be making a guide soon!

  7. This map actually might come in handy. There’s a chance that my PC’s might betray their employer, so having a house like this is good to have! lol!

  8. Thank you Emma and Daniel!! A wonderful effort by the both of you!
    I’m just wondering how can I print your mansion maps out at 1:1 scale (1 square is 1 inch x 1 inch on paper)?
    I tried to follow 2-MTT’s printing guide but it’s not only afterwards that I realised 2-MTT’s printing guide is for PDFs and not your .jpgs! Let’s just say my printed Mansion was kinda… miniature πŸ˜›
    Any hints or tips in this regard would be most helpful!!
    Once again, thanks for the maps!!

    1. I hope to do a “how to print anything to scale” guide very soon which will help!

  9. Hey!
    These are awesome. Is there a stylistic or isometric version of the mansion to show my players on approach?
    Really awesome work!
    Thanks
