River HouseThe River House is a 24 x 20 inch, full color floorplan of a house in a river, with Hex, Square and No overlay.

The zip file includes the VTT file for use online.

Includes a 360° View of the map.

Game Masters need quality maps for their miniatures. DramaScape™ is committed to bringing Game Masters the maps they need.

The river house is a single map of a house whose foundation is on a river.

There is a small dock that has a rowboat tethered to it. The dock leads to a small patio with two large lanterns. The main walls and foundation of the building is made of bricks. The front of the house has a double door with frames made of wood and small glass windows in the door. Next to the door on each side are windows in the same pattern on each side. The floor of the house is made of wooden planks and an embroidered rug covers the middle of the floor of the living room. The living room has two plush chairs, a coffee table, and a roaring hearth. The office next to the living room has a chair and a desk covered with a map and log books. The cabinets have many drawers filed with customs and tax files.

The river house can be used for multiple purposes. If you place it at the side of a river and have a chain stretching to the other shore, it can act as a river lock booth for a tax or customs purpose. It could be placed in the middle of the river as a fisherman’s house or a place for a writer to go for seclusion and quiet during the day before returning to his house on the shore at night. Or it could be used as a guesthouse for a vacation of weekend fishing.

The building has more modern brick architecture and window styles, so likely was made in the 1800-1900s at the earliest. This building is viable in any setting up to modern ones from that time period.

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 dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
