Our goal this time is to bring to life the dark dank depths beneath the popular Castle Ravenstein. These areas have been swallowed by time, corrupted by a power hungry madman, and eternally plagued by the presence of an impossibly ancient evil!
Your contribution will help us create a whole new set of 48" x 36" Mega Maps! All unlocked Dungeon Ravenstein levels are sent to you with the following formats:
- VTT Format: RGB @ 72dpi
- Print Format: RGB @ 300 dpi
- Print Format: CMYK @ 300 dpi
- Grid-Free Versions of all formats!
- "Clean" (prop-less) Versions of all formats for customization!

STRETCH GOAL ROAD MAP - HELP US HIT BOTTOM!!
'A LA CARTE' MENUS
GO BIG OR GO HOME!
Our maps were designed to provide a huge immersive environment (made even better when coupled with our Fantasy Soundscaps!) capable of supporting a number of gaming formats. We've used our Castle Ravenstein for role-playing games, skirmish games, and even board games!
We attended ReaperCon 2014 and hosted a game event using an old board game system, Reaper minis, and our own maps/soundscapes! Just a single level of Castle Ravenstein comfortably accommodated twelve players AND a horde of monsters!

Risks and challenges
You can pledge with confidence when you support a Darkraven Games project!
In the event we successfully fund the risk of non-fulfillment is extremely low. Castle Ravenstein is ready to deliver. Our recent COLOSSUS soundscape tracks will ready for delivery months before this project is ready to roll out. There is no physical product to ship and DropSend has been tried and proven. Once the project is complete it goes right out to the backers.
As for challenges? We set the bar with Castle Ravenstein and our art team aims to set it even higher with Dungeon Ravenstein! There is a lot of work that goes into designing and rendering a map this size. Fortunately our artists and writers are skilled and hard workers. We've given ourselves a large enough window of time to ensure a quality end product but anticipate we'll finish long before the shipping deadline.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
