Free Map Friday - Well of the Ancients




     Children of Graystone are missing and the the goblins of Graystone Vale have a secret...

In the village of Graystone there is a story told to little children about goblins who used to steal unruly children in the night, but the events of the past suggest that it is not just a story. First there was the mystery of the dissapearing stockings--every left stocking in the village just vanished overnight, then the sheep started to dissapear, now it's worse, much worse.

Free Map Monday - The Broken Stone Ruins




     For as long as anyone can remember these ruins have always been here. For as long as anyone can remember these ruins have always been here. Some say a long dead cult built an altar here to their alien gods, another legend is that it was once part of a larger temple complex that was destroyed eons ago in the great battle of the gods, others say the weathered stone tablet is a doorway to the faerie world carried here and sealed by the ancient druids of the Singing Stones?  Whatever you have been told there are great riches burried beneath the Broken Stone and perhap more, but you have also been warned, "The land is cursed! No one has ever stepped foot on the anabranch of the ruins and returned to tell the tale."

     Last month I started a new regular feature for Patreon supporters, the "Living Terrain Tiles" series. "Living Terrain Tiles" use a hex based system that can easily be configured and re-configured into just about any type of terrain that is required for the encounter.This week, while I began to work on some new Tiles for shorelines and rivers, I realized I didn't have any forks for the stream tiles, so I have included them in this weeks creation. I have also added some additional tiles that make it possible to recreate the Broken Stone Ruins as well as the Singing Stones maps using the Living Terrain Tiles. The new tiles include a fork in the stream, 7 new meadow tiles with rock formations, 2 sets of tree tops, and a page of tree trunk texture.

A bundle of deep space horror for the holidays!






Bundle and save 30% on the Adventure and Battlemaps! 


     Mal Fisher, the Captain of the light freighter Bella LeGosi, claims to know the whereabouts of The Lady of Esparto, an ancient lost ship carrying treasure worth millions, and he is looking to hire a salvage crew. He wants to keep everything off the books as he is operating without the required paperwork. He has chosen not to apply for a salvage license for fear that a treasure as great as the Lady of Esparto will attract too much unwanted attention, increasing the likelihood of claim jumpers, pirates, and crooked authorities looking for an easy buck. He is offering a substantial amount of money and a percentage of the treasure for the completion of the job.


This bundle includes the Savage Worlds adventure and several Sci-Fi modular dungeon tile sets, including grid versions and .jpg files for VTTs.

Free Map Friday - The Singing Stones


    Long ago the Druids harnessed the power of the singing stones, channeling the energy of the land through them. Today that is all but a legend, fairy stories told to children at bedtime. But what if the stories were true? Recently sheep herders have been speaking in hushed rumors about strange music in the wind and shadows that move independently of the position of the sun...

This week I started a new regular feature for Patreon supporters, the "Living Terrain" series. Iv'e been expeimenting with modular 2.5D Print & Paste outdoor terrain and I think I have my final answer. I'm using a hex based system that can easily be configured and re-configured into just ablout any type of terrain that is required for the encounter. I was inspired to turn some of those tiles into a battlemap.

Free Map Monday - The Caves and Tunnels Underhill




     Deep in the interior of the desert planet Oz, the silicon based life forms worship the disembodied head of a long inactive giant robot warrior... or something like that.


This map was created using the new modular cave hex tiles I have been working on for tabletop play. They're still in the experimental stage, so stay tuned.



Let me know how you use it!

Previously a Patreon exclusive! 


     Hidden below the surface world are mysteries man was not meant to discover. Ancient alien cities, monuments, and shrines that were once long forgotten, now have become home to new creatures. Recently rediscovered, the Shrine of the Vampire Beetle has become active once again.

I hope you find a home in your adventure for this map. Let me know how you use it and what story it tells.

My imagination is already at work with a tale about six petrified aliens, a combination lock puzzle and several traps. Oh, and don't forget the Vampire Beetles!

This is a modular print and play dungeon tile set that can be used with any tabletop RPG. Also included grid versions and jpg files for Virtual Tabletops.
