Inked Adventures Hand Drawn Large Geomorph Tiles (25/28/30mm scale)
by Brian K. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/22/2014 10:11:38
These tiles are very charming. They really give the feel of an old hand drawn map. I'm mounting mine on foam board for extra rigidity.

Another nice thing about the tiles being primarily black and white is the cost to print. In my area you can have documents printed professionally for ten cents a page if it's black and white, color copies run almost fifty cents a page. As with most of these type of products, I find it better to let someone else take the wear and tear on their printers as opposed to my own at home. I can always run off spares at home if I need to though.

6 Free Sample Hand Drawn Large Geomorph Tiles
by Justin F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/18/2013 12:20:57
I'm actually considering buying the whole pack that's how good this is! Anyone who likes the type of game where you reveal the board as you progress will know what to expect. Not much detail but I'm fine with that. With just 6 tile types the dungeons you can make are endless.

I enjoy the artistry and it comes with lots of rooms, corridors, doors, markers for generating random dungeons. Looks great mounted on foam core!

FREE Inked Adventures Square Dungeon Tiles 4x4 Rooms Bonus Pack
by Alastair M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/15/2013 12:10:49
Very much a free sample pack for the main Inked Adventures' Square Dungeon Tiles set, the three chambers here show clearly the general format and appearance of the range's design, without duplicating any tiles from it, exactly what's needed to judge whether this is what you require, as well as worth downloading in its own right to enhance the full set. The method of concealing unnecessary exits with wall counters is similarly demonstrated, while the inclusion of the main set's information booklet is an equally helpful addition.

Inked Adventures Encounter Lairs 4: Barrow Tomb
by Alastair M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/15/2013 12:09:01
Another fine product in the Inked Adventures' "Encounter Lairs" range, if one that feels a little cramped for space. The stone-walled, partly looted, Barrow Tomb is, as ever, beautifully drawn, with the expected degree of hand-designed detailing from this company, and the figures, by Dave Wears (better known in places such as the Cardboard Warriors Forum as "Kiladecus"), are excellently-drafted too. Eleven minis are warrior skeletons, three others more spectral (one of which, the Undead King of the scenario-suggestion paragraph, is rather lich-like), with three skeletons having optional spear and axe heads to fit to their polearms for more variety. All except the King are plate-armoured, which may reduce their usefulness for some campaign settings, and indicates the need for a strongly-armed party to overcome them.

Despite all the figure bases with the pack having internal stone-floor flagging only, the scenario-suggestion implies the need to defeat the skeleton force in the field first, leaving the Barrow as the focus for the adventure's climax, perhaps tackling no more than the three "spectrals", or the King and a couple of surviving skeletons inside or just outside it, say. For the Barrow's size, this would be likely a useful basis to work from in designing a game with it, although different figures would open up alternatives, while still using the Barrow setting.

Even with a reduced population, the squashed-in nature of the Barrow PDF page remains, as one end and the extracted soil from the broken entrance extend outside the borders of the surface tile surrounding the whole, while the other end barely squeezes inside that border, losing some of the detail on the small bat-winged statue there in the process. I found the grassy background for the Barrow tile printed out too dark as well, not helped by the heavy black tile border, and felt a slightly larger grassed area without that border would have made the whole seem less forced to fit. While a barrow should seem claustrophobic, the world beyond shouldn't, so a little further tweaking here would have been beneficial.

Overall though, the Barrow interior and figures are delightful, and a particularly thoughtful touch with the package was providing one page with an outline plan of the Barrow at reduced scale, leaving space below for a personal scenario design to be added.

Inked Adventures Encounter Lairs 2 Templar Chapel
by Alastair M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/15/2013 12:07:01
In style, perhaps the closest match between that of the Inked Adventures' dungeon floorplans and any paper miniatures, is the similarly quirkily hand-drawn "Imperfect People" range by Dryw the Harper (the others of which are available free via the Cardboard Warriors Forum). Here eleven "Templars" and their "Bishop" are provided, all at least slightly different to one another, each with a separate octagonal base styled to match the Inked Adventures' flagstone floors. They're a delightful group, and distinctively non-denominational, very much in-keeping with their Chapel (despite its cruciform plan).

The one-page Chapel itself is an excellent Inked Adventures creation, with enough floor and wall decoration to add interest without seeming too fussy. A font and a lectern - intriguingly both wall-facing, suggestive of somewhat secretive, or at least unusually private, practices - are set in the left and right alcoves, while much of the apsidal end furthest from the entrance, is filled by a large, hooded & robed stone idol, bearing a golden mallet, and NO altar, all good hooks for the imagination to work upon. The broad, angled opening opposite the apse and idol has no doors fitted, nor are there any windows, which makes this Chapel very flexible, whether set-up alone outdoors or underground, as a crypt to another building, or as part of a dungeon complex.

A brief paragraph sketches one possible background to the Order and their Chapel, which, dependent on what definition of "chaos" is preferred, could make this a sanctuary to escape to, or a threat to be eradicated. Either way, wonderful!

Inked Adventures Encounter Lairs 1 The Demon Chamber
by Alastair M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/15/2013 12:05:27
This is the next logical step on from producing dungeon floorplans with furniture as counters or models, or already added as parts of the drawing; providing scale paper miniatures to go with them, ready to print out. The floorplan here is a superbly-drafted Chamber on two levels in Inked Adventures' signature hand-crafted style, a room which has clearly seen action already. One set of stone steps down is broken, while the blast and splatter lines, many radiating from the centre of the double-ringed summoning circle, suggest at least a couple of previous "oops" moments! Banners on the walls, scattered books, scrolls, papers, chests and even a dropped staff on the upper level, with an equipment table, bookcase and low wooden screen-fence along the lip of the top floor, all suggest somewhere often in-use for highly nefarious purposes.

The figures, from Moss Games, are an ideal accompaniment: a human summoner and his two pasty-faced, nervous, assistants, with a selection of three different types of summonable, monocular demonic creatures, from hordes of small spider-like beasts, through lone bat-winged eyeballs with spider legs, to one large, tentacled eyeball, all with separate octagonal bases designed using Inked Adventures' typical stone-flagged flooring. A flavour paragraph further suggests these figures' possible game usage.

Unusually for inked Adventures, the three doorways (two on the upper level for a hasty exit stage left or right) are already in-place as part of the Chamber. While that might not suit everyone's taste, it means the whole room is complete on one printout page, and stand-up doors could always be placed over the printed ones. Overall, this is a pretty well perfect single-room adventure package.

Inked Adventures: 3D Furniture For Dungeons
by Alastair M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/15/2013 12:03:37
An interesting collection of basic dungeon furniture paper models, the natural evolution from the 2D counters available in other "Inked Adventures" dungeon products, while retaining that essential style. Even the "boxy" look of the finished pieces is in-keeping with that quirkily simple-seeming appearance. Unusually for such 3D items, underside drawings are included for the beds, chairs, benches, chests and bookcases, so these can be set up at ANY angle, a very thoughtful touch. A little variation might have helped in places (with the two identical sets of bookshelves, and especially the six beds), while a few score lines could have been better indicated, but this is a good little set. Be nice to see more items like this from Inked Adventures too - sarcophagi, altars, workbenches, cupboards, imposing chairs, etc., etc!

Inked Adventures: Small Dungeon Door
by Alastair M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/08/2013 08:03:31
Four identical, stand-up wooden doors, each small, square-topped and with a barred grille at head level, set in a square stone wall surround, ideal for use as cell doors, or as especially awkward access-routes (one at a time, the defenders can see you coming, and can shoot through the bars!). There are no obvious hinges, handle, lock or latch, perhaps an oversight, but that does leave the operating mechanism flexible, while the page is in Inked Adventures standard "Modular Dungeon" format, so has the somewhat wasteful "parchment look" throwaway page border, a minor irritation. No other doors quite like these come with the other Modular Dungeon packages, so a fine variant overall.

Inked Adventures Free Doors
by Alastair M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/08/2013 08:02:07
Two pages of stand-up door models, square-topped and without a wall surround, the wooden ones with particularly heavy metal reinforcements on one side and a large, circular ring-handle on both, the stone ones blank, cream-coloured slabs, with a couple of partial lines of worn inscription. They are laid-out on the page as pairs, with minor variations between the two, so work equally well as double-width entrances or, if cut in two, as "normal-sized" doorways. An excellent set to complement the numerous other "Inked Adventures" door-styles.

Inked Adventures: Large Dungeon Entrance
by Alastair M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/08/2013 08:00:34
While billed as an impressive way to enter an Inked Adventures' Modular Dungeon, so drawn in a matching style, this nicely decorated, imposing, stand-up arch would work just as well as a free-standing portal in mid-chamber, perhaps with a home-made insert if active, maybe showing the view to whatever it provides access to. It might even be employed as a very elaborate frame for a gigantic scrying mirror, say. Some pillars or other "furniture", drawn as if carved in a matching stonework style would have added a little more to increase this product's potential uses, and the ink-wasting "parchment edge" page border could have been removed with no loss, but this is a pleasing expansion item for the Modular Dungeon range.

Inked Adventures: Savage Cellar Floor Plan Tile
by Alastair M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/08/2013 07:58:51
A deep cellar room tiled over three printout pages, whose wood-plank floor has been largely, and none-too-gently, removed, revealing an even deeper, stone-floored cellar beneath, the whole full of all kinds of weird & wonderful items, from bookshelves and scattered papers on the upper level, with its chipped, plastered walls, to curious statues and a red mosaic floor-inlay magic circle on the lower. This is a glorious example of Inked Adventures' products at their very best, with a huge range of visual potential story hooks. The entire floor has an inch-square grid across it, which looks only as if it is part of the flooring - that's something really special - and this even extends to the rickety wooden staircase leading down from the printed-in doorway, despite the fact the stairs are drafted with perspective showing how they descend, so the whole still looks entirely natural. A one-page colour drawing of the complete room rounds-off the package, showing how the whole should look when finished, which can be copied & pasted for use in a separate personal description of the Cellar for game-use. Inspirational!

Inked Adventures: FREE Crypt Room
by Alastair M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/01/2013 05:12:28
Inked Adventures' "Modular Dungeon" system is a good way to create tabletop dungeon floorplan layouts, but for me it really begins to come alive once some props and counters are added. This deceptively simple rectangular Crypt Room has its props built-in, and comes with a separate stand-up stone slab tomb door, giving a number of options for an adventuring party to explore, without making the whole feel at all cluttered. A real gem of a piece. My only question is - when can we expect the matching Inked Adventures' "Crypts, Tombs and Catacombs" pack, noted as "forthcoming" now for over a year?

Inked Adventures: Skeletal Archway & Portal
by Alastair M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/01/2013 05:11:03
Quite a specialised add-on to Inked Adventures' "Modular Dungeon" system, this stand-up "doorway" comes in two versions, one with a dark, circular tunnel-entrance arch, the other with this entranceway magically glowing, each surrounded by bones. It might be thought to work best as a free-standing object in a room, as the skeletal surrounds don't match up with any other of the Inked Adventures dungeon items currently available, but that difference would work equally well to highlight an access-route to somewhere more dangerous, when set against the "normal" dungeon walls. Although drawn as a simple square, the surround could be cut easily by hand into a curve to mirror the central arch for variety, and that centre cut out as well, either to leave open as "inactive", or to insert a different view, maybe something self-designed and printed onto transparent film. Production values are of Inked Adventures' usual high standard, the one drawback being the rather wasteful "parchment-edge" to the printout page, which will be simply discarded. Some matching bone-lined floors and walls might have been an interesting addition here to open up greater game-use options, though as it is, a decent focal-point for an adventure.

Inked Adventures: Modular Dungeon Cut-Up Sections Basic Pack
by Alastair M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/25/2013 05:51:38
A splendid collection of dungeon floorplans, items, door and hazard counters, with the option to add stand-up doors in two different formats (with or without supporting walls), the whole prepared in a delightful hand-drawn style reminiscent of British artists like Ronald Searle (who drew the original "St Trinian's" cartoons) and William Heath Robinson (who famously drew many imaginary complex machines made out of old bits and pieces, connected by lengths of knotted string, scraps of wood and so forth). The defining elements of all are no truly straight edges, and an eye for detail where needed. Here, that means things such as small texture markings on the stones and occasional irregularly cracked flagstones.

All the expected modular items are included for basic corridors and rooms, using a standard grey stone colouring, although one or two smaller rooms and stairways have cream-yellow flagstone shadings instead for variety, an effect which recurs more fully for the larger chambers. A few of the smaller rooms are more exotically-decorated still, with patterned or wood-plank floors, a nice touch, while a couple of special rooms, one on two levels, the other an Idol Chamber, provide the icing on the cake, with extra emplaced items, encouraging their use as focal points in any adventure. And to get you inside, there's even an overgrown ruin tile with stairs leading down to the first doorway.

In general, the pieces print out clearly and cleanly, though the overgrown entrance and Idol Chamber tiles have colouring a little too dark in places, not a major fault. The "worn parchment edge" border to every page is wasteful however, as it's simply going to be cut off and thrown away. Be careful in doing so, as there are a couple of compass roses, a north pointer, and some interesting curlicues among the marginalia which could have game use as well. The only real lack is an index page showing thumbnails of the set, which would have made planning what needed to be printed much easier. Even so, these dungeons are just itching to be cut-up, board-backed/laminated and above all USED!
