Ruined Mill

DramaScape Brief Encounters 09

This is a 48 x 30 inch map of a Ruined Mill, it has Hex, Square and No Overlays, it also includes the VTT files for online play. The map suits Fantasy and Modern rpg.

This module contains a ruined mill and the dilapidated remains of the miller’s house. Stone trenches act as canals and funnel water to the mill and downstream. The house and mill were built on higher ground. A partially standing stonewall is all that remains of the warehouse that once stored the grain. There are remains of an encampment here; a fire pit has been built in this area. A large rock to the north, the stonewall, and the forest surrounding this spot make it a good area to hide the light of a fire.


The area hasn’t been used in quite some time, making this a good hiding place for people familiar with the wilderness such as brigands, bandits, scouts, or even rangers.
When visiting a local nearby village, the Player Characters are told about the old ruined mill. The miller was found downstream, dead of drowning. When the bravest villagers went to investigate, they found the mill wheel stopped up by strange seaweed. When they later turned up drowned downstream, the villagers became deathly afraid of the place, and made up a rumor about the ghost of the miller to frighten their kids to stay away from the area. The farmer may tell the Player Characters about the ghost of the miller and his wrathful spirit as well as having seen lights up in the hills during recent nights.


If the Player Characters go to investigate, they may find a group of bandits, brigands, scouts, or rangers. The bandits or brigands could have been using the area as a hideout from the law or as a staging point for raiding caravans on the road. Scouts may have been sent by a local army to look for weak points along the border with a foreign land or to scout the village for a takeover attempt. Rangers may be here hunting the bandits or brigands in the area.


One twist is that they find the brigands, bandits, scouts, or rangers, except they are all dead near the tree line, with the embers of their fire cooling. The Player Characters must investigate what killed them. A search of their bodies may reveal the cause of death; strangulation if they have any sort of Anatomy, Physiology, or Healing skills. Something killed these men, and it is up there stalking the Player Characters as their next victims. A stealthy plant or aquatic monster with a preference for strangulation and/or drowning is the suggestion for the adversary.

Ruined Mill, by DramaScape, is a beautiful overhead color map, which can be used for both hex and square-based gameplay. The great thing about this product, is that the map comes with the overlay visible or without. As I use maps for online gaming, [...]

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.
