Lumberjacks Tavern

By on 9 April 2013

This Product is a 40 x 30 inch, full color floorplan of a Tavern.

It comes with Square, Hex and No Ovelays and includes the VTT files for online use.

The Lumberjack Tavern is a single large map of a log cabin-style tavern in the wilderness. It is intended for use in Fantasy or Pioneering games and the tavern would work well for frontier encounters set during the Colonial Period of U.S. history or during later gold rushes and settlement initiatives expanding the U.S. ever westward.

The forest surrounding the Lumberjack Tavern has been plagued with worker disappearances lately. Loggers enter the woods in the morning, but come evening some frequently do not return. The tavern keeper, owning high stakes in the lumber camp, does his best to keep the lumberjacks happy despite the dangers of the woods, serving them food and drink until they pass out on the tavern floor or in their chairs. Newcomers are offered their fill as well; no one is discriminated against as the lumber camp is in constant need of new recruits to replace those who disappear in the forest. The locals fear a rival logging businesses might be responsible for the disappearances, or possibly some tribe of feral Indians, or perhaps even the Devil himself. Investors and the local Marshal are growing increasingly worried and a decision is made to send a group of troubleshooters to investigate…

Can the player characters discover the Lumberjack Tavern’s dark secret or will they come to a grisly end as they work themselves to death in the forest?

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at
