A5 Gamers' Notebooks

The A5 Gamers' Notebook Kickstarter has got just under a week left to run. It's already funded and I'm now also doing some work on designs for the follow-up campaigns.

I'm planning two additional notebook designs. I'll run short Kickstarters for each of them in quick succession. The first one is a hex notebook with large 17mm hexes on one page and a smaller 7mm hexes on the other.

The large hexes are arranged as 8 columns by 10 rows making them ideal for charting Traveller subsectors. At this stage I'm not sure whether to add numbers to these hexes and would welcome feed back on this.

The smaller hexes are arranged with a larger 15 hex super hex outline and a marked centre hex. This is the same format that I use on my existing A5 hex pads.

















The other version of the notebook that I'm planning has the same 7mm hex design as above but the left page will have a grid along with a lined section.

















Both of these notebooks will have 50 sheets and will be printed on 120gsm paper. In the images the heavy black lines near the margin won't be printed and are just a guide to dhow where the wiro binding holes will extend to.

A5 Gamers' Notebooks Kicstarter is Live

I've just launched a Kickstarter to fund a reprint of our popular A5-sized Gamers' Notebooks. The design is almost the same as the previous version. I've increased the paper thickness and reduced the number of sheets to keep the overall weight of the book the same as last time (an important factor when posting them out). The only other small change is that logo on the back cover will be moved to the inside back cover and reduced in size.

It's a short campaign ending on Monday 22nd April. As soon as I've posted the rewards for it I hope to launch a new campaign for a version with hexes.

Last Weekend for Black Hack Pre-orders

Having finished sending all The Black Hack Kickstarter rewards last week, I'm now almost finished sending out the pre-orders. I'm going to leave the pre-order products up for sale until the end of Sunday so if you'd like to snag one of them now's the time to order.

After the pre-orders close I'll be putting up The Black Hack range for general sale, but the pre-orders will be better value and they are the only way outside of Kickstarter to get one of the exclusive copies of the book with a cloth/silver cover.

Here's a link to them:

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:
