4th Edition Modules and Roll20

1340353598
Does anyone know of a publisher out there that produces 4th edition D&D modules in a digital format, that also supplies all the maps, art and handouts as separate files? Roll20 seems like the perfect tool for a DM short on prep time. Upload all the art and copy/paste the text and with minimum tweaking you have a campaign ready to go.

I'm not certain of a digital supplier of this. There are some rights and licensing issues involved-- it IS doable, and we will be supporting this (for 4E, Savage Worlds, Pathfinder, and any number of other modules) so long as they're properly licensed. If anyone knows of people that provide the digital components for this sort of play, please put them in touch with us.
I don't think this currently exists for 4E, but me and some other people have been creating digital maps of some 4E modules at the Cartographer's Guild. These do not include any WotC resources and don't reproduce the poster maps so as to minimise pirating, and they are for non-commercial use only. For example I have made digital encounter maps for running the 4E modules Madness at Gardmore Abbey (<a href="http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?18033-Madness-at-Gardmore-Abbey-Encounter-Maps" rel="nofollow">http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?18033-Madness-at-Gardmore-Abbey-Encounter-Maps</a>) and Assault on Nightwyrm Fortress (<a href="http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?18846-Assault-On-Nightwyrm-Fortress-Encounter-Maps" rel="nofollow">http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?18846-Assault-On-Nightwyrm-Fortress-Encounter-Maps</a>).

Wow. Jack, I've just e-mailed you.
Those are some really (really) good maps. All I have done is copied the map supplied by the module and touched them up to remove numbers and secret doors so they players aren´t given a clue as to what is going on. I really like your work, very talented.

Thanks for the input guys. I used to be a longtime Pathfinder adventure path subscriber, and with the accompanying pdfs you get I figured you could probably just crop out the maps/handouts/etc from them and upload them to your Roll20 campaign. Not ideal, but it would certainly work. I was hoping there was a publisher for 4th edition that was doing something similar, but no dice I guess.
