Jörðgarð Map of the Week #378 - Black Fortress Castle Cellar

Map of the Week No. 378 is from the forthcoming Jörðgarð Trails adventure "A Tale of 2 Books." This week we look at the cellar of the fortress' castle.

The castle hardly ever has seen any use. The Great Wars ended with Martröð's fall and destruction not too long after he had placed trhe red draug Ragnheiður in the fortress. In postwar times Ragnheiður spent almost all her time in the fortress in her well-protected subterranean dungeon lair. She hardly ever entered the castle nor did any of her servants.Thus, except for the dust covering things, almost nothing has changed in the structure since it was built. The cellar contains a jail, torture chamber and storage areas.

Key to the Floor Plan:

  1. Spiral Staircase to Ground Floor Guardroom.

  2. Torture Chamber.

  3. Prison Cells.

  4. Unlocked Stone Door.

  5. Ladder to Kitchen.

  6. Storage Room.

  7. Kitchen Well Shaft.

  8. Ground Floor Jakes Shafts.

The graphic above is reduced in size. You can get the full-sized floor plan in two versions:

  2. As a JPG flat map of 1360 x 600 Pixels (380 KB), available from the NBOS website at:
