When the company's website was still up, they put up versions of the floorplans with a combat grid on them (so we might find those useful later too). They haven't updated their website since 2004 and it went down a month or two ago. I can't remember if they did combat grids for the second half of the adventure and I didn't get them in time or if they simply didn't do them at all.

I am sure one of our talented members might be able to help you out there.

Okay, now to clarify things a bit......

The second floorplan for the Grey Gull (the one on the right) is not actualy below decks, it's the interior of the forecastle and quarterdeck. Below deck is a big hollow area where they store stuff (yes, the ship really is that basic). They have two fixed hatches with stairs to go below deck but for actual moving cargo they just lever up sections of the deck and lower stuff down by hand (ropes and bits of cloth and stuff). Yes, Captain Ableford knows some of the more recent ships have hatches, ramps, winches and stuff, but he simply can't afford them and he likes to keep the men busy (and they don't mind much).

The board for High Seas (a game the sailors like to play to pass the time, and earn a few coins off each other).

The adventure came with a copy of it on pdf so I copied and pasted all the pictures into windows Paint. Admitedly some of them had to be done in two or three pieces and then put back together.

Just host your pics through Cheddarmongers.org and you can avoid the issue altogether.

Views of Guardian Abbey from Without.

Guardian Abbey viewed from the southwest



The road runs up from the south, along the southwestern wall and to the main gate from where it also leads off to the northwestern watchtower in the distance.



Guardian Abbey viewed from the southeast





and the north



This gives a good view of the main entrance and surrounding areas from another angle.



and the northwest



Good view of the open space between the long side building and the main building (and shows the covered walkway between them).
