So many Kickstarter Projects, so little money. But here’s another cool one because you can have too many maps.

Yeah, I know. There are lots and lots of places to get maps and tiles and so forth. These are going to be done by Jared Blando who does some fantastic maps and great artwork.
The goal is for four encounter area maps. I’m talking big poster sized maps of locations that could be used multiple times. Heavy duty lamentation to make them Mountain Dew proof. Also a great selling point.
Rolled not folded. This is an OK point. It’s Murphy’s Law of using miniatures that somebody always ends up on the crease. And the person who ends up there also has the most unbalanced miniature. They fall over. Admit you’ve been there. But I’ve also had similar problems with rolled maps and scrounging for a few hefty objects to hold down the corners. In my little gaming group, we’ve gotten some cheap poster frames and just mounted those bid maps that way.
And speaking of big. 24 x30 inches. OK in standard game scale, that would tally up to 120 x 150 feet. They should still be room on most gaming tables for these.
These little babies are on the shopping list and as soon as that next pay check hits the bank…
And as a final note and disclosure: Trent from Encounter Maps contacted me about his project before I discovered it. And yes, I’m getting a little a freebie.
