Alien Planetscapes

I am excited to announce the release of a new free series from Paths to Adventure!

Each of the Alien Planetscapes volumes contains a series of eight high resolution full-page encounter maps designed for a specific planetary environment. These eight can be combined to create a seamless 34" x 22" planetscape. The series includes clean, hex, and grid versions of each map.

A combined super high-resolution 600 dpi (68" x 44") version of the poster map is also included with each volume.

I attempted to include a wide theme of environment that would fit most planetary encounters, and hope the variety will lend well to both science fiction as well as fantasy battle map.

These are a companion series to my free "Space VTT" series, and have been designed for compatible use in your favorite virtual tabletop software.

The series includes the following themes: Icy Planet (arctic/wintery), Rocky Planet (mountains/desert), Cratered Moon (desolate wasteland), Verdant Planet (forests and groves), Swamp Planet (marshes and stagnant waters).

You can download Alien Planetscapes from DriveThruRPG.

New Adventureaweek.com Upgrades

Much of my schedule over the past week has been taken up completing several major upgrades to the Adventureaweek.com service. In addition to tweaking several plugins and creating some custom code to handle the way that the site management it handles, I also oversaw the transfer of the entire site to a new upgraded and more secure server. Subscribers should experience a dramatic enhancement in service performance as well as increased functionality -- and several annoying gremlins squashed. More upgrades and additions are planned for the service later this year, but AAW Games will be running the new stable version of the site so I can work out any remaining kinks in the meantime.

Adventure Starscapes

I am excited to announce the release of a new free series from Paths to Adventure!

Each of the Adventure Starscapes volume contains a series of high resolution full-page starscapes (space / star maps) including clean, hex, and grid versions. The eight variants can be combined to create one massive 34” x 22” seamless starscape.

A combined super high-resolution 600 dpi source file (that can be used as a 68" x 44" starscape) is also included with each volume.

Volume V includes an entire bonus starscape series themed for "deep space".

I tried to create a wide theme of styles from the darker depths of deep space, to sparse nebulae, to star nurseries, to brightly colored themes that will work for hyperspace / drift travel.

These are a companion series to my "Planet Portfolio" series. And are now included in the Space VTT Set subcategory of products from Paths to Adventure, and are perfect for Virtual Tabletop science fiction gaming.

You can download Adventure Starscapes from DriveThruRPG.

Big Book of Maps Volume 2 (April 2018 Summary)

The April 2018 Month-End Summary update for "The Big Book of Maps for Tabletop Roleplaying Games - Volume 2: Science Fiction" has been posted to the Kickstarter campaign.

April saw the following content releases:
  • 8 Science Fiction Maps (3 Starship Deckplan Maps; 5 Locale Maps)
  • 20 Science Fiction Icons (Themes: Doors & Passages)
  • Planet Portfolio I (50 VTT Assets)
  • 4 Starship Builder Kits (80 Unique Starship Sections)

Special Funding Stretch Goal Achieved!

The very exciting news is that thanks to our late backers, who raised an additional $2,638.00 USD (bringing total funds raised for the Volume 2 project to $23,641.00).

We have unlocked additional stretch goals -- including the "biggie" -- auto-funding "Volume 3: Mini-Dungeon Maps" for all backers.

What this means is that everyone who has backed this Kickstarter for Volume 2, will also be getting the digital content and/or PDF (relative to level backed) for the next volume of maps which will focus on smaller fantasy-themed "mini-dungeon" maps.

The production of Volume 3 will not begin until the "Volume 2: Science Fiction" project is completed and fully released, but will roll into its creation phase immediately thereafter.

Late Backer Portal Extended!

The plan was originally to wrap up the Late Backer Portal on April 30, 2018. However, since backers have now auto-funded the fantasy maps for Volume 3, I will be extended that deadline by a few weeks. If you missed the Kicksdtarter, you can still get in on this huge collection of maps!

Starship Builder Kit #4: Terran Fighters

Another of my Starship Builder Kits has been released!

This Starship Builder Kit has been designed to allow you to utilize various stylized starship sections to compile your very own custom starship deckplan. You can use any graphics editing software that support PNG format to combine the pieces, drop them directly into your favorite virtual tabletop (VTT) application, or even print and cut them out to be put together to make a tabletop play map.

This series of kits is designed to allow you to mix-and-match any of the sections included herein with sections included in other sets in the series.

This product provides at least 20 ship sections as well as three sample ships built utilizing the included resources.

With Starship Builder Kits it is easy to create your own high-quality starship deckplans!
