The Armory

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

The Armory is a 24 x 20 inch, full color floorplan of an Armory, with Hex, Square and No overlay.

This product is a single room armory. The entrance to the armory is at the north center of the map. The armory has a massive crack down the center in the concrete and smaller cracks going across the map. The room features multiple tables all with briefcases, guns, cartridges, and crates on top of them.

This room makes a great spot for a firefight. Multiple tables can be kicked or pushed over to provide cover. Ammo and guns are plentiful as long as you can get through the suppressive fire to reach them. Opening briefcases and crates add an element of surprise, since you have no idea what is in them, but their contents could be helpful.

As such, this makes a great setting for a climatic last stand battle with an evil villain and his guards in a modern game. The villain would be aware of what weapon does what, and what the briefcases and crates hold, so his knowledge of the room and its contents would make him a deadlier opponent in this instance.

The armory also makes a great way point room in a modern adventure, the players get to regroup and reload before the rest of the adventure. Maybe the guards catch up to them, and a firefight ensues with guards entering from the top of the map trying to retake the room, and the Player Characters have to hold them off.

The zip file includes the VTT file for use online.

You can buy this product from DriveThruRPG/RPGNow.

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.
