The CellarThis is a 24 x 24 inch map of a Cellar, it has Hex, Square and No Overlays, it also includes the VTT files for online play. The map suits Fantasy and Modern rpg.

This module is a one-floor basement or external cellar. There is a staircase going down to a main hallway, and four cellar rooms.

This very versatile map can be used in anything from medieval to more modern day settings.
This makes a great place for a hostage situation. The bad guys kidnap hostages ranging from a noblewoman to a politician’s wife and hold them for ransom, then hole up in this cellar as a meeting place for the people they are blackmailing. The stone pillars and barrels give lots of cover for ranged weapons ranging from crossbows to modern guns. The Player Characters are hired to save the hostages probably by the people being blackmailed.

As a World War II scenario, this would make an excellent bottom level to a castle where prisoners of war are being held. The Player Characters are given mission orders to free the prisoners of war while the Allies make an assault on the castle as a distraction. Shells from ally guns are causing the castle to shake; high beams and stone rubble fall from above with every shot fired. The Player Characters have to deal with the Axis forces in the basement and save the prisoners before the Axis soldiers escape with the prisoners and transports them to another location.

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.
