One Dollar Dungeon: Rogue's Reward Prison Map Pack
by Noah D. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/18/2014 01:10:37
The prison map is beautifully drawn, and contains a lot of interesting rooms and hiding places for heroes trying to break out their friends. But on second glance there are some weird things about the map. There is a stairway that appears to go to some undisclosed location. There is something that surrounds the back end of the prison but it isn't clear whether it's a wall or a pathway. When I used it for a 7th Sea prison break I had to keep saying. "Okay, just pretend that there's a barracks of guards over here on the second floor you can't see, and that the kitchen for the prison which you can't see is actually over where the map shows the torture chamber down below."

A written description of the prison would have been a huge help in figuring this out. Great map, poorly thought out.

Fantasy Maps: Magical Research Facility Map Pack
by Robert A. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/08/2013 10:33:58
Highly detailed in every aspect, from the building in general to every item in the rooms. For a magical setting definitely a good choice.

This map pack delivers the maps in several formats, from colour to greyscale, with and without grid, so every gamer can find the version he needs.

Fantasy Maps: Magical Research Facility Map Pack
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 11/08/2013 04:18:35
Have you ever wondered how spells come to be? Or how aspiring mages learn their craft? Perhaps it's because I'm a lecturer (in the more mundane art of computing) but I have. I have computer labs at my disposal, a bank of switches and routers to practice setting up networks and so on... what does a wizard have?

Perhaps this mapset has the answer, a rather cosy facility that provides accommodation, laboratory space and offices for a group of research mages or students. There's just the one dormitory with five beds, but it's roomy and provides study space as well. There's a lab for those with an alchemical bent, several storerooms for supplies, an office and a lounge area. Upstairs, there's a full-blown ritual circle for practising your summoning and a spacious study/classroom area.

The one thing this building lacks is a decent library. However, if you decide it is part of a larger institution, the books and scrolls may be stored elsewhere. Likewise, the chief magician - Professor of Magic or whatever - may live elsewhere, even if he uses the big office on the ground floor during the day.

From the technical standpoint, nice artwork and presented as 'easy-print' PDFs, large JPEG files you can edit and annotate, and more that are specifically prepared for those using virtual table top facilities to game online. Nice stuff!

Fantasy Maps: Cistern Map Pack
by Bill B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/04/2013 15:39:57
Exactly what I was looking for in a sewer map! Highly detailed- the water and stonework are particularly nice. However, it only gets a 4 out of 5 due to size- I wish it was a bit bigger or had some tunnels. Still, it's excellent value for money, and if you're looking for a good sewer map the Cistern Map Pack will do very nicely.

Fantasy Maps: Cistern Map Pack
by Megan R. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/17/2013 11:50:07
A handy mapset showing a rather clean section of a city's underpinning waterworks... a splendid location for anything from smuggling and hiding out to monster hunting and other feats of derring-do.

There are a lot of options here, from passageways with a central channel containing water to an actual circular cistern, little stone or plank bridges, steps and hidden nooks that could make a good - if rather damp and potentially smelly - hideout.

If you run city based adventures and ever wish to delve below the surface, this could prove a useful resource.

Fantasy Maps: Lighthouse and Dock Map Pack
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 06/14/2013 11:47:43
Should you ever have a shore-based adventure, you may find this beautiful lighthouse and dock of use... or if you're like me, you may start having plot ideas just looking at it!

It's quite simple: a short stretch of shore-line with a five-level lighthouse and a jetty beside it. It is however beautifully-drawn and comes in a selection of useful forms including multiple sheets to print and stick together, individual pages for each level of the lighthouse and a massive spread for those using virtual table tops. These are supplied in PDF and JPEG format, with greyscale and colour versions with and without a grid: pick what you want and have at it.

The lighthouse has plenty of scope for adventure. Each level is well-detailed, with living space shown from a ground floor bedroom to sitting areas and storage further up - and a cosy chair for the lighthouse-keeper high up where he can get a good view, not to mention the light itself at the top and what must be the mechanism to make it rotate running down the middle of the tower.

Unusual, perhaps, and you may not have much of a reason to visit (except the excellent one of having a nice map!) but there must be lighthouses dotted around the coasts of your campaign world - unless there are a lot of shipwrecks - so I'm sure it will come in useful.

Mega Townscapes: Human Town
by SJ B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/20/2013 16:23:49
It's average.

I wish some designers here would produce some hand painted tiles.
These tilesets with copy/pasted photo textures are getting kind of old.

Not happy with spending $10 on these.

Mega Townscapes Sample: Tavern
by Christopher S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/17/2013 15:18:44
Not a bad little tavern. I would have appreciated getting a higher definition picture of the tavern and tavern roof without any grid lines, but it is a good map.

Fantasy Maps: Airship Map Pack
by David W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/15/2012 09:42:08
This was my first map from D20 Cartographer, but it will NOT be my last!

This set offers beautiful artwork, and vivid color. It gives you a complete set of maps that make up this vessel. Perfect for fantasy, sci-fi, steampunk, and countless other genres.

Along with a brief description of how the pieces "fit" together, it also gives ideas for plot points and suggestions.

A FANTASTIC set, and the best value I have seen in a while for the money.

Fantasy Maps: Airship Map Pack
by Tom M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/03/2012 13:48:36
I was looking for a deck plan to use in my Eberron campaign, and this fit the bill perfectly for an airship. The download even includes a brief description of each deck, just enough to tell me what to place there without specifics I couldn't use. Well worth the very reasonable price!

Mega Townscapes: Human Town
by JERRY M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/13/2012 08:59:08
I really liked this set. Lots of buioldings with exterior and interior views.

However,

Because of the layout of the town, a lot of the buildings end up being split onto multiple print pages with only a small portion of the building on each page. This becomes even more apparent in the "individual buildings" files where you end up with a lot of whitespace and then just a corner of the building.

Some of this comes from the unusual alignment that the buildings are laid out in in the town. However, for individual files, I'd much rather have the plans laid out in standard up down left right format. MAny of the plans would have fit easily onto one or two pages that way instead of on 1/4 - 1/3 of 4 to six pages at odd angles.

Its a minor thing, but it really adds to the prep time needed for a GM to print and sort and arrange the plans.

It would have been nice to have printable building interiors that were easy to use to make your own town layouts with this.


Other than that, its a nice set. (But maybe you could update it with the separate maps realigned better?)

Hi there! I wanted think thank you for your review and talk about the format for the "easy print" files. In order to ensure maximum compatibility, the 'easy print' PDF files are designed with the standard required margin for most printers (.25 inches on all sides) built in. One of the outcomes was that smaller buildings (say, 11x8) just barely couldn't fit on one page. Once spread across two (or more for larger buildings or multiple levels), it does seem to have a lot of white-space and require a small amount of taping. A lot of experimentation was done to try and minimize the number of pages that any particular building may require: given that the map was designed artistically first and formatted for print second, this ended up being the best layout. (for anyone who is unclear on what we mean, definitely check out the free sample Tavern download. It should be a good visual aid for the formatting of the rest of the buildings) Should you be interested in building your own maps by rearranging furniture, definitely check out the individual building files in the VTT portion of the download: these empty building 'shells' come as a full, single .jpg files, and dragging/dropping the included objects should be a piece of cake! One of the added bonuses of doing it this way is that you can print from from a single image, tiling it across multiple pages or applying any other print options/formatting/cropping you would like! Thanks again for the feedback, and happy gaming! --D20 Cartographer
Mega Townscapes: Human Town
by Keith (. T. A. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 07/07/2012 21:57:10
The d20 Cartographer strikes again with a massive town map for use in your fantasy RPG. This huge map features a walled town with multiple shops, temples, guildhalls, barracks, and houses. There's also a bazaar for your characters to explore. You can even go inside the city walls to defend the town from invaders. The map is beautiful with rich colors and textures making it highly appealing to the eyes. You can print out the sections to make one large map or print out individual buildings for use in any town.

The true magic happens when you use the map in MapTool. First of all it comes with a set of Devin Night's villager tokens allowing you to populate your town quickly. The MapTool campaign file has two maps representing the interior and exterior of the town's buildings. As you move across the entryway the token is taken to the other map for further exploration. The level of detail on these maps is amazing. You can see the sunlight hitting the floor coming in from the windows. On top of that, the maps already have the vision blocking layer populated so your PCs have no idea what's around the next corner or in the next room.

By The Numbers

28 Tokens
12 Highly detailed buildings with Vision Blocking and Fog of War
2 MapTool campaign files, one with the entire town on one map and another with a map per building
100+ object png files to use for set dressing on any other map you care to draw

The Savage Troll considers this town map a must have for any MapTool fantasy games. You simply can't beat the price for all that's in this product.

This is a really detailled and beautiful town map probably fitting into any fantasy or historical campaign.

If you use MapTool (a free VTT) it comes with additional candy. The campaign file is set up with vision blocking and is made from separare objects, so you can customize the room interior to your needs. It comes with a set of macros that automate movement in the map (if you enter a house you are automatically transported to the interior view).
