New & Upcoming Releases


First of all I'd like to announce the release of a new(ish) map-pack...

...and as you can see, these tiles are very similar to those found in the existing Basic Dungeon Tiles range - but in this instance, they have been presented as black & white images with a plain white background.

The set also uses a simple '3 tile system' (i.e. a passage, a small room, and a large room tile) which can be modified to produce T-junctions, crossroads etc. (with the use of small overlay tiles), instead of having a separate tile for each:

In addition, the set is also well suited to generating random dungeon maps on the fly ...and a simple set of instructions has been included to allow you to do just that (though you'll still need a set of random encounter tables for your game of choice to add a little interest).

And just like the aforementioned Basic Dungeon Tiles range, this new set is available as a pay-what-you-want product pick it up for free, or pay as much (or as little) as you like!

If you've been following the g+ and facebook pages you'll probably have seen that progress is still being made (albeit slowly) on the 'Dungeon Encounters' book...

...though there's still lots to do :)

However, the next thing to surface will probably be a new map depicting some of the ruined city of Aramdol (from the Age of Shadow setting) ...and here's a quick look at a small prototype that I've been working on to show you how the map will probably look (just think of it being a lot larger and containing several different buildings):

I've also got a couple of other things in the works that I can't really talk about yet, as well as more miniatures/terrain stuff to work on, and various notes and scribbles for future 'zine & blog articles (including more information on beastling clans/warbands, and how to use these creatures as a playable race in an 'evil' campaign)  ...but I think I've rambled on long enough for one post :)

A free cave map for the 'Into the Dungeon' range...

I'm very pleased to announce the release of a free/sample map for the Into the Darkness range...

Into the Darkness: Map 0 features a small cave map which should be suitable for inclusion in most fantasy settings (note that there is an image on the Facebook page that shows the map in its entirety).

This product contains

  • A pdf booklet featuring a labelled version of the cave.
  • A miniatures scaled battlemap of the cave (split over 2 pages).
  • An unlabelled jpg image (scaled at 100 pixels per grid square) - suitable for use with VTTs.

It's also worth nothing that, as well as being a stand alone product, this FREE map-pack also serves as a great way to sample the style & quality of the other maps in the Into the Darkness range.

Into the Darkness: Map 0 is available from RPGNow & DriveThruRPG.

Hexes and Hex Maps

This week sees a couple of new additions to the CSP storefront over on DriveThruRPG and RPGNow.

The first of these is a new map for the Age of Shadow campaign setting...

This particular map takes a closer look at a small area within the Northern Kingdom (which just so happens to be where my current campaign is starting out), and depicts it in far greater detail.

That being said, both a labelled an unlabelled version of the map have been included in this product, so you can use it as it stands, or adapt it you your own games and settings if you prefer (inserting place names of your own devising).

Age of Shadow : Hex Map 1 is s available for just $1.99 from DriveThruRPG and RPGNow.

However, if drawing your own maps from scratch is your kind of thing, then the new HEX GRIDS booklet may be of interest to you...

This product features the same style of (blank) hex grid featured in the above AoS map, however it has been provided in several different scales, sizes, and formats - so that you can use a similar hex system for your own creations.

-an example page-

Hex Grids is a FREE/PWYW product, so pick it up for free, or pay as little (or as much) as you like!

...and with it comes my monthly 'if you want to show your support for the dungeon monthly project, please check out my Patreon page' message :)

Anyway, now that's out of the way, you can also find unlabelled versions of all these maps in the following G+ albums:

In addition, here's a quick look at how this year's dungeon level is shaping up (i.e. when all eight of this year's maps are pieced together):

Dungeon Monthly #31 (July 2015)

I'm a little late posting this month's dungeon map (due to a combination of illness, and the lack of a stable internet connection) ...but here it finally is:

And, as usual, unlabelled versions for all of these 'dungeon-monthly' maps can be found in the following G+ albums:

I'd also like to say a big thank you to the folks who are supporting the dungeon monthly project over on Patreon ...and if you'd like to support the project yourself (and ensure that I keep on drawing these little modular maps), then feel free to head on over to my Patreon page.
