Rifts - new gaming tiles for a dark future.

Rifts tiles.

From Heroic Maps.

I downloaded these beauties last week and finally found the time to start printing, cutting and sticking them together.

Very happy with Heroic Maps as they make the best 2D maps I've seen.



I managed to glue most of the larger rooms and corridors to one single large piece of card.




The rest of the smaller rooms and corridors had to be glued to smaller A4 cards.

I am interested in recreating Hadley's Hope from the Aliens movie and I was thinking of purchasing these. Do they print onto a stand 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of paper? Any thoughts on the quality?

Hi Rick,

Thanks for your question.

I printed these out on standard A4 size paper which I believe is about 8.5 x 11.75 inches and I had no issue at all.

If you are looking to print these on a smaller size piece of paper then the download comes with a handy re-sizing chart that allows you to print the map tiles to a smaller scale.

I've copied the sizing scale below, if you have any other question then please feel free to get in contact

Regards,
J the DM

Printing Instructions
Default paper size for pdf is A4.
For 28mm scale print at 100%
For 25mm (1”) scale print at 91%

Have you had a chance to compare these to the Pathfinder Map Pack: Starship Chambers?

Dungeon Master said…
Hi Rick,

Yes I have, I actually bought the Pathfinder: Starship Chambers a number of months ago and even though it is a fine set of map tiles, the design of the tiles is a little bit too clean cut for what I needed. The reason I downloaded the ,map tiles on this post is because they look a bit more rugged, used, dark etc which is exactly the look that I wanted. Plus I think the download has a total of 36 corridors/rooms which can be re-printed if required.

Hope this helps with your choice.

Regards,
Jonathan

Lost Mines of Phandelver - Thunder Tree Village

So me and my gaming friends got together again at the weekend to play the next part of the D&D adventure Lost Mines of Phandelver.

Here are some photos taken by myself and one of the other players.
The first set of pictures show the village of Thunder Tree, we travelled here to find a druid who we hoped would help us find Cragmaw Castle.
The village of Thunder Tree
The ruins of Thunder Tree
Outside of the druids tavern, we had a big fight with a horde of Ash Zombies and the druid got out some popcorn and watched the battle.
Green Dragon lair....not quite big enough for his liking so he might be moving home soon.
Awesome Ettercap that we fought, this was made by the DM and scared the hell out of party.

Ark of the Mad Mage - update

Hi all, 

So I set up this blog to document a AD&D dungeon that I created/copied which is based on the excellent pod casts and PAX 2013 D&D dungeons run by Chris Perkins for his "(in)famous" D&D crew.

If you have seen or listened to these pod casts and videos then you will know the back story of what this dungeon was and how is played out with the DM and players. However I wanted to re-create the dungeon for my group of gaming friends so that they could experience the game for real.

When I first set out to write this dungeon I spent a lot of time listening, watching and then re-listening and re-watching the various pod casts and videos so that I knew the original dungeon concepts inside and out. 

Hopefully you will enjoy what I have presented here and you will be able to see how I moved from the original concept of bringing this dungeon to the table and how it finally played out.

I haven't informed any of my friends who I am running this dungeon for that I have set…

Lost Mines of Phandelver - Pictures from inside the goblin cave

Entering the goblin cave, searching for Gundren Rockseeker and Sildar.
As you can see the ''roof'' of the cave was made from paper. So as we ventures further in our DM would rip more off to reveal what we could see. Genius!
Watch out for sneaky goblins on bridges. 
Close up of the party and the cave.
