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

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.
