Hi All, I'm in desperate need of finding assets that help me recreate this map in higher detail (resolution) and updated graphical style. Yes, its the old classic of the Keep on the Borderlands. I have purchased Village to Pillage - City Walls 1 by Gabriel Pickard, but that isn't so much a library of common symbols as the library he made to make a specific city. So it is missing the variety of sizes in common roofs (like 20x50 wood tiles in a NS orientation, 40x80 stone roofs (with and without crenelations), round stone towers and the like). I can't for the love of me find anything in the Marketplace (no really - I do a search for a specific keyword like "walls" and I get tokens of undead in the list of FIVE HUNDRED options - useless) so was wondering of anyone has purchased something that will fit the bill? Please don't suggest Campaign Cartographer! OMG, that program needs an update to it's interface!! I'm sure its very powerful and you eventually "get used to it" but I don't have time, right now. I know how to use Roll20 and GIMP and can mess with layers, tonal coloring and maybe some light editing and transparency effects. That's about it for now.

I'm a big fan of the Red Caps Maps sets by Gabriel Pickard. They have a more hand drawn feel, but you could definitely recreate that map with them.&nbsp; <a href="https://marketplace.roll20.net/browse/search/?keywords=cap%27s&amp;sortby=new&amp;type=all" rel="nofollow">https://marketplace.roll20.net/browse/search/?keywords=cap%27s&amp;sortby=new&amp;type=all</a>

Also, when searching for graphics, it can sometimes be more helpful to go to Google image search and type in: site:marketplace.roll20.net search terms That will return individual graphic matches instead of entire sets, but clicking on any of them will take you to the marketplace page for that asset.

Thanks for the link! And thanks, Keith. I'll try that next time.

I can recommend the Red Cap's Maps sets too. The artist, Gabriel Pickard, has other construction sets as well, if the "look" of the Red Cap line isn't really to your liking.

Here's a post with some dungeons I built with a few of them:&nbsp; <a href="https://app.roll20.net/forum/permalink/3304442/" rel="nofollow">https://app.roll20.net/forum/permalink/3304442/</a>

Yes, I have 3 of Gabriels sets already, the more realistic looking ones like Forest Mapper and City Walls... But that last one doesn't have all the different configs of roofs I need. I think the Red Cap ones are the ones I will have to go with. And once agaon the Marketplace has let me and the author down by not showing those to me until someone like you guys point it out to me.&nbsp; Their sales could likely double if the search engine was better refined. Nice maps, Aaron... I like what you do with dynamic lighting, too! And just before I hit post... Look what I happen to find after SLOWLY going through each of his sets: <a href="https://marketplace.roll20.net/browse/set/1639/slap-down-town-construction-set" rel="nofollow">https://marketplace.roll20.net/browse/set/1639/slap-down-town-construction-set</a> Thats exactly what I was looking for. Search engine fail, once again.&nbsp; And a big thanks to Gabriel!

Honestly, I spend as much (if not more) of my time building stuff for for my campaigns as I do actually DMing them. I don't mind though, it's fun for me.&nbsp;
