Garadur's Plateau Megadungeon Poster Map

I've just received a very limited print run of this giant megadungeon map by Charley Phipps. The prints are B1 sized (1000 x 707mm 39.4 x 27.8 inches) and printed on matt white paper. I've added some of them to my site (see link below) and I'll be taking the rest with me to Dragonmeet in December.

The Black Hack Second Edition

We've just updated the PDF for The Black Hack Second Edition. It now includes PDF bookmarks and we've corrected lots of typos. Since it's launch last week, it's been sat firmly at Numder 1 in the RPGNow.com chart. We've also had a great response from our backers who've helped refine the rules during our beta release and spot typos. We're very close to going to press with the main book now.

The PDF is available here:

And if you missed the Kickstarter you can still bag a preorder that gets you a deal that's almost as good here:

Caves of Chaos Poster Prints On Sale Now

I've now added the Caves of Chaos poster-sized maps by Dyson Logos to the Squarehex site. There are two versions of the map, one with numbers, and one without. There is also a set of mapping sheets that simply have a grid and the cave entrances marked on them. Finally, there is special-priced set that includes both posters and a set of mapping sheets. All the sheets measure 707mm wide by 500mm high and are printed on matt white 115gsm paper. If you need a frame I got mine from Ikea for £5 or £6 in the UK and Amazon have a wide range in the £15-20 price range. All the frames I found were 700mm wide so to make the print fit nicely you need to trim 3-4mm off each side.

Here's a link to all 4 products:

The Caves of Chaos Poster Print Teaser

Dyson Logos has kindly given me permission to print some poster-sized versions of his superb Caves of Chaos maps. The image below shows the version with no numbers, but there will also be a numbered version and a blank mapping sheet with 10mm grid lines and just the cave entrances.

The maps are printed on 115gsm matt white paper and they measure 707mm wide by 500mm high.

I hope to release them for sale later this week, but I was so pleased with how the fist one turned out I just had to share it.

Sample 2.5D Dungeon

I've been making a few 2.5D Dungeon tiles over the last few evenings. Below is an example of the size of dungeon that may be created using one set of pre-printed 2.5D Dungeon Sheets.



















I've not made any of the columns, altars, tables or other items yet. If you'd like to try making your own set. You can get PDF of the textures here:

2.5D Dungeon Terrain Launch

I've just released a new pack of professionally terrain sheets for creating 2.5D dungeons. The sheets in the pack were created by Kristian Richards of Crooked Staff Publishing. The first pack in the range contains 24 A4-sized sheets of terrain printed on 170gsm silk art paper. There are 12 sheets of flooring texture and 12 sheets for creating wall, doors, columns, alters, tables and other stone/wooden items.

All you need to add to the kit to make your dungeon is some thick card or foam board, a sharp knife (please take care when making cuts) and metal ruler, and a glue stick. As a launch offer you can buy a special triple pack of the terrain and receive a free aluminium ruler and a large glue stick.

Get them here: https://squarehex.myshopify.com/collections/all/2-5d-dungeon
