Keep on the Shadowfell Maps

Ok, just a fast post: I have the original Keep on the Shadowfell with poster maps. However its a touch too big to scan them. I found a copy of the forest map, however the others are corrupted & distorted. I need a decently clean copy to use in my online game and can’t find one anywhere.

I’ve found about a zillion copies of the inside of the keep: (My players keep out!) but none of the outdoor maps, probably because the outdoor maps came with the original, but NOT the indoor ones. So I rather need a map of the dig site and don’t have one. I’m going to bribe you all with the collected maps I’ve found in exchange for helping me find a copy ok?

Oh yeah, my players? Stay out of the links please and thank you.

EDIT: I was never able to find the map so I made a cleaned up copy myself. It is not great but it worked for the duration of the encounter. This post is now bringing in more hits to my blog then everything else combined, so evidently a lot of people are looking for these maps. I’m somewhat embarrassed that my laziest post is getting me the most hits, but glad others are benefiting from my work. If you find a map I have not linked please leave a comment: I’d like to make this as useful a resource for people as I can. I’m thinking I should like together all the resources for KotS I’ve found at some point given how popular this has been.

Edit 2: I have since found what I think is the best version of the map of the keep. It is listed as one of the best maps on the Cartographers’ Guild forums. Enjoy!

To make it more clear: This is the map I need, but hopefully not quite so messed up with its colours.
Heck if someone could help me clean that up a bit I’ll use it!

Oh found it…without a grid. If someone can help me add a grid I will be very very grateful. Also seems a bit low-res for my needs.

Maps from here on are what I found looking for the map in the above two links, thought I’d share.

New versions of the outdoor maps.

Edit: There was a link with all of them, but it appears to be dead and not in The Wayback Machine. It pointed to http://forums.gleemax.com/showthread.php?p=16725492 if anyone can find a copy. I believe the individual posts below contain all the same content however.

The Keep Maps 1–5
Level 1 Maps 6–8
Level 1 Maps 9–11
Level 2 Maps 12–17
Caverns 9–11

Don’t like this version as much but its got the dunjinni files…and no outdoors.

I even found a photo of MY copy of the map.

I had some more maps the the keep here, but even after I found the new ENWorld link they appear to be gone. The current link on Enworld is http://www.enworld.org/forum/entry.php?330-Keep-on-the-Shadowfell-full-scale-1-quot-map if anyone has a copy of the maps that were once their.

I found copies of the posters, but they are REALLLLYYYY bad scans (Note: I’ve paid money for these maps AND its now a free adventure, so I feel ok linking to this)

Some nice maps of Winterhaven and surroundings

This guy tells you how to BUILD each encounter in 3D

A different style of map for the keep itself

Finally: Not the best looking, but usable

Edit 2 (Goes with edit 2 above): I’m embarrassed that this post gets so much attention as I have spent the least time on it of any blog post and it contains pretty much no original content. On the other hand if people find it useful I’ve done something good. Anyway, I updated a link to point at the thread more directly. I also found an amazing link that is the best version I have seen by far and will be adding it. Finally I fixed some spelling & grammar I noticed. Anyway, Until next time: Stay Geeky!

Edit N, 2015-7-28: I’ve updated the links as a lot of them had broken when people updated forum software. Some I couldn’t save, but most should be useful. Not that I imagine many people are wanting to run the introductory adventure for 4th edition anymore, now that Pathfinder and 5th edition have displaced it.

  1. […] someone enjoys my ramblings and ravings. If nothing else, I know a lot of you have found my post on Keep on the Shadowfell Maps (by far my most popular post, and one I created just to keep track of the links I was finding. I […]

  2. How big are the maps supposed to be, once printed?

    • I don’t know how these ones are sized, but the standard scale used in 3e, 3.5, 4e and Pathfinder is 1″ squares. If you use older miniatures with smaller bases or some form of token then you can get away with smaller squares.
