Manor House Building Set

ZIP File

The Manor House Building Set is a papercraft 3d modular terrain kit that gives you all the pieces you need to construct all sorts of buildings for your tabletop games! Based on 3" tiles, the set provides a variety of interior and exterior walls, trusses and a roof system that lets you design rooflines both short and tall, long and straight or angled with corners and intersections. Start your crafting small and let your collection of pieces grow as much as you want!

In each Paper Realms modular terrain set, you'll find interchangeable parts that are simple to build, and store flat when not in use. Tiles can be connected with foamcore plugs, making your maps bump-proof when the game action gets a little heated. With the posts and walls installed, everything becomes sturdy so you can move sections of your build on and off the table, revealing new places as the exploration happens. And the walls are easy to remove during game play if you need to make spaces more accessible!

Want a little bonus? Craft with your players! It's inevitable that some game night will fall through because not everyone can make it. Have a crafting night! It's a great way to have the thrill of socializing and gaming, all while creating terrain you can use for your next adventure! 

Manor House Building Set

Slate roofs, stone walls and floors, and even crenelated edging for the tiles!

What is included in the set:

  • 3"x3", 3"x6" and 6"x6" stone floor tiles, in gridless, 1" grid and 1.5" grid formats
  • Exterior and interior walls in 1", 2", 3", and 6" lengths
  • Posts for corners, sides and centers of tiles to hold up the walls
  • A complete roof system (22 pieces!) with grey slate textures, allowing for a variety of layouts
  • End caps that serve as decoration and railings for upper levels of your builds
  • Stairs with optional, removable railings
  • Detailed instructions
  • Automated cutter files compatible with Silhouette brand cutters
  • Storage boxes you can make to keep your posts, walls and trusses organized

What is required:

  • Adobe Acrobat Reader is required to use the files provided
  • Heavy paper (100# cardstock or photo paper)
  • Printer
  • Hobby knife
  • Metal ruler
  • Cutting mat
  • Glue (white glue and spray glue recommended)
  • Markers for edging pieces
  • Foamcore

Supplies required

This is a common collection of tools needed to get crafting. The metal ruler and craft knife (in this case, an inexpensive snap-blade knife) do the bulk of the work. A self-healing cutting mat will protect your workspace. White glue is great for small surfaces, but don't use too much! It is watery and can warp paper easily! Super77 is an example of a spray glue that can coat larger, flat surfaces like the walls. It covers the paper quickly and evenly, and won't warp. A black marker lets you color in the exposed edges of paper - a finishing touch known as 'edging' that realy improves the quality of the final result.

So how does this modular terrain work?

Each modular terrain system product comes with detailed instructions with step-by-step photographs of each piece being built. The modular terrain system centers on three core components: tiles, posts and walls. You can build as many or as few as you need, and add to your collection over time. Pictured here is an assortment of these common components from the Infiinite Dungeons set.

Modular terrain pieces

Tiles typically come in 3"x3", 3"x6" and 6"x6" sizes, and feature 1" grids, 1.5" grids or gridless textures. Tiles have a foamcore base, making them extremely sturdy. They connect together with foamcore plugs, making a stable base to build on. In the coners and along the sides of the tiles, you will see special tabs that blend into the tile texture. These tabs fold up to allow attaching posts. The posts are what hold the walls in place.

Demonstration of posts on tiles

Posts commonly come in three types: corner posts, side posts and center posts. They have slots that allow the walls to slide in place, hanging kind of like a file folder might hang in a file cabinet. 

Example modular build

Once you've got the basics down, you'll also find stairs to let you build multiple dungeon levels, and end caps that provide a decorative cover or railings along exposed tile sides.

The fieldstone texture is awesome! I love the crenelations! This is listed as a manor house which is great, but you can use these pieces to make a whole village or add flavor to existing buildings. All of the pieces will mix and match with all of the [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
