Castle of the Bloated One - Massive Update

From January through September of 2012, work on recreating images of the layout of The Castle of the Bloated One, all done in Dungeonographer, and finished in Paint Shop Pro took place. The entire complex was also created in Sketchup for both perspective and top-down viewing. Those images were posted on this blog from October through December 2012, to both share the original campaign, and to collect as much data as I could in hopes of at some point publishing the material.

Over the last month, I've been revisiting this area to correct errors made in recreation due to not having my original source hex maps available, which I found on September 3rd. First was recreating a basic blue overlay of the entire castle complex to show the layout, sans any dungeon levels.

Next, all the entrance points from the castle complex into the dungeon were created, and then Dungeon Level 1 was laid out. I did this in two versions, a full 10,000 X 10,000 version in Dungeonographer, and a smaller overlay version to fit the blue layout.
Then, I added an overlay of the dungeon onto the blue background, giving a collective view of the complex together.

More to come,
