Thank you, making the changes and updating the maps.
Appreciate it. :)

Residence #10
This is the local wizards home. He is a bit different than the one described in the Morgansfort book, my guy is into comfort. He had stairs built, "Because wizards do not climb ladders." and he enjoys his big comfy reading chair and even has a magically filled and heated tub.
He is an avid reader and collector of scrolls and books, and has a magical teleportation circle in his basement that allows him to travel back and forth to the Wizards Guild in Slateholm. Curiously, the Herbalists rug also allows him to teleport back and forth as well. He has been attempting to purchase the rug for some time.

Smithy / Armorer #11
This is the Smith's. He along with his apprentice serve the Fort making weapons and armor as well as fixing smaller items for the residents. He does a fine job with weapons, but usually buys his armor ready made from Slateholm to save time. He has recently allowed his apprentice to move into the attic as he is getting married and will soon have a family.
He keeps his really special items in the cellar.

Inn - The Iron Helm Inn #14
The Inn is really nice considering the lack of traffic passing through, but a few of the residents of the Fort do maintain a room here.
The bath is hot and popular as the only one in the entire Fort (the Baron has one, good luck getting permission to use that one, and technically no one knows about the wizards).

Chapel #15
This is the Chapel of Saint Queril. Most of the local residents are worshipers of Tah, and the Chapel is very crowded on days of Holy services. The clerics spend a large amount of time making beer (which they sell to the tavern (or consume themselves) and tending to their flocks of sheep which are kept in semi-secure folds outside the Fort's walls.
The Crypt levels are rarely visited, except for the larger central crypt which belongs to the Lady Melaina. This one always has fresh flowers and candles burning by the door. Residents and the Baron visit it often. She has taken on almost a Saint like reputation as the Protector of those who are weak, and often prayers are heard muttered in her name.

That concludes all of the public buildings.
Next I will work on the towers, gate house, and the Barons house as well as the barracks/stables for the troops.

After that I will endeavor to map and describe the Under-Passages.
These are halls and rooms below the Fort that pre-date the current buildings. The Fort was built on the remains of an ancient ruin and anyone digging in the area is guaranteed to unearth an artifact or sometimes something worse.

Thanks.
I thought about that, but to tell the truth I have tried making supplements and even an adventure, and while I am not computer illiterate, I cannot get the dang formatting of that template to work for me. I change one little thing and the whole thing looks out of wack. Get that fixed and it changes 10 other things.
So I have given up on that endeavor. (Bonus points for using 'endeavor' in two posts on a single day...Whooohooo!).

Yes, I can modify the adventure template for a handout document, likely using single column. As usual we'll be happy to help!

For the images and text, I think instead of labeling them "Residence #9" and such it should follow what we use in modules, ie "9. Residence".
