What can I say? If you got this far, you're a gamer that's addicted to gaming. You need to buy something to stroke your addiction or sell something to support your life style. Or, if you're like me, you need to look until something says you need it.

O

ne of the better ideas that seems to have worked out well, was incorporating the use of real house plans in our Vamps game. 

When your situation is a firefight in or around a house, find some sample house plans on the net and blow them up to match the scale of your miniatures.  You will then have an instant map to the interior of a house.  Well... not quite instant.  You do need an art program that can handle scaling the floor plan large enough.  (Don't worry about the resolution, it'll be fuzzy but it's a one time use floor plan.)

As for the printing of the scaled up floor plan, you need a printer that can handle multiple sheets of your tipical 8.5"X11" paper for a single printing.  Most of the printers that are about 2 to 3 years old should be able to handle it. 

When you get the whole thing printed out and taped together, you have a game map of a house that you can scribble anything on it you want, because normally, it's a single use item for a one time encounter and you're done with it.

Now, I'm not advocating the misuse of copyrighted material here, so by all means, should you pull a copy of some floor plan off the net, it is not yours to sell or give away.  It is a gaming aid to help make your game a little more exciting.
