Jörðgarð Map of the Week #380 - Black Fortress Castle Tower

Map of the Week No. 380 is from the forthcoming Jörðgarð Trails adventure "A Tale of 2 Books." This week we look at the upper floor of the fortress castle's tower.

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 the 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 tower was intended as a watchpost from which guards could keep watch upon the castle gounds and shoot arrows at intruders. These days this area almost never is occupied. Chairs and windows face out in all directions. A trapdoor opens onto a ladder to the lower level.

The graphic above is reduced in size. You can get this floor plan in two versions:

  1. The Fractal Mapper (TM) 8 version in FMP format (9.8 MB) from the Jörðgarð website.

  2. As a JPG flat map of 1360 x 1140 Pixels (430 KB), available from the NBOS website at:
