What is a king without a kingdom? What is a kingdom without a castle?
Volondor: "The City," is perhaps the world's largest city map set. (Mapped to floor-plan level of detail.) Volondor is unlike any other city map due to the number, size, variety and details of its floor plans. Over 100 "unique" building floor plans intelligently arranged to form a huge walled castle surrounded by a large city. This city was realistically designed with defense, economy and entertainment in mind. (This city offers many interesting tactical and role-playing locations.)
This set includes World Map of Voldaria, a Regional Map of the Midlands, an Outer-City Area Map, and a Castle Area Map. The Castle Map is drawn in floor-plan fashion on nine 8x11 inch pages. (Which may be printed, then taped together to form one giant map.) Buildings depicted in this map set range in size from a 3x3 foot outhouses, to a full size palace. (The inner city/castle area is well over one million square feet in size.) Floor-plans depict such details as types of locks used on doors, where torches, doors and windows are set into walls, and what furniture might be in rooms. (Including treasure chests.) Maps also depict objects such as walls, towers, gates, stairs, baths, statues, wells, traps, animal pens/stables and more. (Using these maps for a guide, the experience GM can easily give detailed narrative descriptions of every building/room/location in Volondor.)
Building floor-plans include a variety of interesting locations such as: A palace with royal ballroom, a theater, a firehouse, a court house, a city jail, a town hall, a blood pit, a swimming pool, a library, a museum, a university, a primary school, a dorm, a prison, a thieves guild and a Coliseum. (Coliseum includes animal pens, slave pens, monster pens, and gladiator's quarters.) It also includes dozens of stores, various low, middle and upper class homes, various guilds, various guard barracks, various fast food stands, two warehouses, several taverns/inns, three brothels and more! (Where ever adventure might take your characters you will have a detailed floor-plan to guide their way.)
This map set also details sewer grates and the location of over 100 dungeon entrances that correspond to locations on the "Volunder" Map Set. (100+ Dungeon Floor Plans, soon to be released.) It also contains unique objects like a 50 ton crane in the shipyard, a tall lighthouse, a wizard tower, and a large river water wheel for grinding grain.
In addition this set contains optional SSD city "bonus" material that includes: 100 Random NPCs, and random city encounter tables. (Based on location.) Random city law and punishment tables.
