New 'pay-what-you-want' Dungeon Tiles

I'm pleased to announce a new range of modular dungeon tiles for use with 28mm miniatures.

But isn't the market already flooded with similar tiles? ...well perhaps, which is why I've made them available as a "pay-what-you-want" product - meaning that you can pick them up for free -OR- offer up a few coppers if you feel so inclined.

The booklet contains nineteen different rooms & passages (each measuring 8" x 8"), as well as two pages of smaller stair tiles & dead-ends.

 The Basic Dungeon Tiles booklet is available from RPGNow & DriveThruRPG

3 years worth of dungeon maps!

As regular followers of the blog will probably know, for the last 3 years I have been sharing a bunch of greyscale (geomorph-style) dungeon maps over on G+ and on the blog itself.

So, since I've just finished the final map for this year (see the previous entry), I thought I'd post a brief recap of my (not so) little dungeon mapping project, and show how all of these maps can be pieced together to create a variety of different size/shape dungeon layouts.

* * * * *


During the first year of the project (which I dubbed 'Map-a-Monday' - due to the fact that I posted a new map on the blog every Monday morning) these maps were simple dungeon 'geomorphs' which could be pieced together in a variety of different ways shown in the example below:

As you'd expect, the project yeilded 52 of these maps by the end of the year ...all of which can be found in THIS G+ Album.

* * * * *


The following year I continued with the 'Map-a-Monday' project - but this time I switched things up a little, and instead of dungeon 'geomorphs' I tried my hand at a bunch of caves and caverns. Once again, these maps were modular in design - meaning that they could be used in much the same fashion as the previous year's maps (or even used together to create a hybrid cave/dungeon layout):

However, there were 53 'Mondays' in 2012 ...and so this (of course) resulted in another 53 maps - all of which can be found in THIS G+ Album.

* * * * *


By the end of 2012, the thought of continuing the 'Map-a-Monday' project for another year had lost some of its appeal ...and so I decided to slow things down to a rate of one map per month - and thus the 'Dungeon-Monthly' project was born.

However, for this year's project I've opted to draw a number of semi-modular dungeon maps (of varying sizes) - which would not only work in conjunction with those from the previous two years, but could also be used in a specific configuration to depict a huge dungeon level all of its own:

An example using two of this year's Dungeon-Monthly maps with 3 maps from 2011's Map-a-Monday project.

All 12 of this year's Dungeon Monthly maps pieced together to form one huge dungeon level.

Note that all 12 maps from this year's project can be found in THIS G+ Album.

* * * * *

So there you have it, that's 117 free* maps over the course of 3 years!

But does it end there? ...probably not - as I'm thinking of continuing the 'Dungeon Monthly' project into 2014 ...that is, assuming folks aren't getting a little bored with them by now :)

EDIT: I forgot to mention that there's also a bunch of additional stairways and dead-ends (to cap off any unwanted passages) in THIS album. 

Dungeon Monthly (December 2013)

Here's this month's dungeon map ...and the final one of the year:

As always, unnumbered versions of all of these maps can also be found in the following G+ albums:

Starter bundle for the Age of Shadow (with a one day 'Cyber Monday' special price)

Today sees the release of a new product bundle for the Age of Shadow RPG ...and since it's that time of the year again (i.e. Cyber/Mega Monday), I've decided to put it on sale for $3 (for today only).

After that, the normal price of this bundle will be $5.99 (which is still a saving of a couple of dollars).

The bundle contains:

  • The Age of Shadow Campaign Guide : which features a brief introduction to the default campaign setting.
  • Campaign Map 1 : a map-pack that depicts the land within the borders of the Northern Kingdom (in various formats).
  • Encounters in the Northlands : a booklet containing several brief adventures/encounters set in the Northern Kingdom.

So, if you combine this bundle with the (free) Age of Shadow core rulebook, you'll have everything you need to get your party of heroes off on the road to adventure!

You can get the starter bundle HERE
