The Pause That Refreshes
Just before battle begins, the unsuspecting and simple river folk go about their business, unaware of the bloody nightmare about to be unleashed upon them.
The stream is not very deep. A DC10 swim check gets you across with a full round action -- if you take 10, there is no problem. But you can't take 10 in battle, of course, so if you are unlucky and roll low, the stream could be a small hazard.
A creature standing in the trees gains a +2 cover bonus to Armor Class and a +1 cover bonus on Reflex saves. A DC 15 Climb check is sufficient to climb a tree. The undergrowth around the trees tends to tangle your feet, so it costs 2 squares of movement to enter a forest square. It also offers 20% concealment. The forest undergrowth increases the DC of Tumble and Move Silently checks by 2 because the leaves and branches get in the way.
The Berry Bramble:
The bramble is thick with bushes, vines, and short trees. You can move 5 feet through it in a move action, or 10 feet with a full round action. You cannot run through the bramble.
The maps above were made using Excel exclusively. All items on the map are draw objects. Many use the program's transparency feature so that the underlying grid remains visible. For those who have Excel and would like to play with the file, here it is. After completion, the final gifs were created with screen snapshots in Mac OSX and resaved in Photoshop Elements.
