One tabletop RPG dungeon map every day – seven days a week! Detailed battlemaps will be included. We start at 111 maps in 111 days!

We have soon reached our third stretch goal!

With "the Sage" Skip Williams!
Most maps can be the basis for your own adventures (hopefully with the aid of the furnishing) but we’ve convinced Skip Williams to write a scenario or two for us – if we reach stretch goals! See ”Stretch goals” below.

Developing unique maps
Using a unique technique, the maps will be made as dungeon maps AND battle maps at the same time! Both versions will come complete with furnishing. Before even making the first of these dungeon maps I have spent hundreds of hours during several years developing this unique and efficient workflow. This means I can use my time creating exciting dungeons instead of battling technical difficulties. I am using Adobe Illustrator to make the maps – with some aid from Photoshop and Adobe InDesign.

* 101 dungeon maps (at least)
* Furnished maps
* Unique workflow
* Detailed dungeon map every day
* Detailed battlemaps every day
* Full color
* Suitable for printing
* Dungeon + scenario (depending on stretch goals)

Variety of maps
We will make a variety of maps – many dungeon maps but also castles, mines, houses, sewers, Dwarven cities. Most of the maps will be fully furnished with chairs, tables, rugs, torches etc. Each map will be fitted into a regular 8.5 x 11 paper (roughly A4 size) so that you can easily print it. Some maps can also be connected to each other to form a larger map – while other maps will be smaller.

Dungeon maps and battlemaps
The maps will be posted on the brand new ”Dungeon of the Day” Blog (at Megaton Games). All visitors to the blog can download the maps in low resolution. Backers will receive higher quality maps in print resolution. Higher tier supporters will even get high resolution battle maps - suitable for printing and use with your miniatures!

This is a forum for a virtual tabletop - so most of us will be using these maps in electronic form. What resolution (pixels per 5 foot square etc.) would the "higher quality maps" be?

I messaged Megaton on his kickstarter page. He said they will be 60 pixels per square on the full dungeon maps and 300 pixels per square on the battle maps.

Thanks for that - that'll be good for FG. :)

They just added a new pledge tier for hi-res full dungeon maps. They will be 250 pixels per 1in square. I'm not really knowledgeable with this stuff, would that be overkill for FG?

Typically 50px per square is the most common size used.
Ive backed but I dont need the stuff at such high resolution.
