Published map

One of my maps has been published in the new Chivalry & Sorcery Essence tabletop RPG. You can buy copies of the game in print and PDF form at DriveThruRPG http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product_info.php?products_id=96971&filters=0_0_44531_0_0, which I highly recommend - the rules are fast and fun. Alternatively, the map itself is a standalone freebie, which you can download here: http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product_info.php?products_id=97109&filters=0_0_44531_0_0
