The Bridge

By on 6 February 2014

This is a 32 x 30 inch map of a Bridge, it has Hex, Square and No Overlays, it also includes the VTT files for online play. The map suits Fantasy and Modern rpg.

The Bridge module includes a map of a bridge crossing a river in a mountainous region.

The Bridge can be used in any genre or setting.

The Bridge can be used as a RPG battle map, recreating for example the classic troll under the bridge scenario where the troll demands a toll from anyone who wants to cross his bridge.

The Bridge also works perfectly in miniature games. One side’s objective could be to protect and control the bridge and road (and supply lines leading further on). The other side’s goal might be to capture the bridge for their own purposes or alternatively to demolish it so as to deny it to the enemy. For example, one victory condition could be to control the bridge by placing one mini at either end of the bridge and one halfway across it, achieving victory by establishing a supply line through enemy held territory. Two opposing forces can be deployed on opposite sides of the bridge in the west and east; alternatively narrowed down to the northwestern and southeastern corners, or the southwestern and northeastern corners of the map. The rocky outcroppings provide a lot of cover, whereas being out in the open to conquer the bridge is a very dangerous proposition. The river serves to separate the battlefield, making flying and swimming units particularly valuable here. Plenty of rocky ground also give an advantage to wilderness and climbing units.

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
