Fantasy village map


Recommended Posts

I am preparing a mini-campaign for a D&D 5e game using Sandy Petersen's Cthulhu Mythos.  The location is a Norse style settlement that is sized as a large village or small town set on a fjord or coastal area.  Cold, dreary with heavy wooded inland areas (think 13th Warrior).


While the adventure is nearly complete, I have all the who's, what's and why's.  But I would like to have a map for the players.  I have found plenty of villages and towns, but nothing that has the period style long houses (?) or halls. 


I've tried online and DriveThruRPG without success.  I was hoping someone here could point me in the right direction.  I'm fully willing to buy it within reason.

For a smaller town, there's Sigtuna. It was a planned town, and about the turn of the first millennium it probably had a couple of thousand inhabitants. Halfway down the linked page there's a picture of a reconstruction of the city plan -- big harbor; no fortifications; each plot on the main street 25 feet by 60+ feet, with several small houses on the plots, probably timber-built.

The Campaign Classics book Vikings (for Hero 4E and Rolemaster) has an overhead perspective of a small Viking town with a simple map key.

Awesome, thank you.  I completely forgot about those books.  I may have a copy at home.  If not I'll have to check the e-stores and see if I can find them.
