    RPG Map Images Resource?

    I've recently downloaded MapTools, which I'm sure many of you out there use, and I want to make my own maps for it. Does anyone know of any good resources for images to use in maps? For example: trees, bushes, chairs, tables, viewed from the top. Google searching for every little thing is a tad challenging.

    Cartographers' Guild - is a great source for maps, VT ready maps, map objects like: trees, buildings, rocks, bridges, even people, etc.

    Lots of MapTools users are Cartographers' Guild members including MapTool programmers and Forum site members like Dorpond.

    A bunch of nice maps there too.

    Welcome to MapTool! I'm always happy to help folks with MapTool questions.

    As for this particular question, my answer over on the blog talks about a gigantic file with tons of images, textures, etc. that I've personally found very useful for drawing maps in MapTool. You can download that file directly here.

    I'll be honest - I go to their forums for MapTool art ALL THE TIME. They have a LOT of stuff in there - and their search function is pretty decent.

    Keep in mind that the original poster seems to be looking for resources to make his own maps (objects, textures, etc.) rather than finished maps to download. Those are awesome, too, though!

    also recommend: Cartographers' Guild


    May also want to check out the Media Lounge & Miscellaneous Geek Stuff - Page 2 - EN World: Your Daily RPG Magazine forum and look for Maps-A-Monday

    There are also some older threads with maps in them.

    Thanks everyone! I've started to find what I need. The Dundjinni forums are definitely very helpful.
