Encounter Map – Eaton Gatehouse


Every now and then you need a good multi-level “stormin’ the castle” encounter map. Eaton Village Gatehouse is a pretty solid way to do one of these without being overly complicated. Made up of four maps, you have the wall itself, the lower level of the gatehouse, and the upper level of the gatehouse. On this map I left the rooms inside mostly empty. In my playthrough of this a group of bandits held the wall, with their commander above the second floor grate ready to pour down acid into the corridor below. Players could climb the vines, use spells to fly, or try and force their way through the main portcullis.
