Epic Cartography: Paths of Adventure Map pack Bundle [BUNDLE]
by Will M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/30/2016 04:14:38

Pros: the cartography is evocative and beautiful. Probably prints well.


Cons: The product does not support use in Virtual Table Top (VTT) software. The images are baked into the PDF, and unlike most other publishers, the PDFs are password protected. If you wish to use these maps in a VTT, as I planned to, your only option is to take screenshots and manually reassemble them in a graphics editor, which is finicky, time consuming, and probably loses image resolution.


It's also short-sighted. Unless I miss my guess, the majority of people purchasing maps online are looking for maps they can use in online games, not print out for tabletop use. Perhaps that wasn't the case when these were first created. Regardless, I hope Red Epic Games adopts a more VTT-friendly approach for any future products. But you can bet I'll be double-checking before buying.


Very disappointed that I won't be able to use this product without a bunch of extra effort.

Epic Cartography: Paths of Peril Map Pack #4
by Jamie V. D. Date Added: 06/21/2015 10:23:14

NOTE! this is ONLY a large UNeditable PDF. It is NOT compatible with virtual tabletops. You also can't make any changes to the maps. I expect when I order an electronic version of something to not just have a static product I can't interact with. I certainly expect an electronic product to be compatible with a virtual table top!
Unfortunately I bought all four products as a bundle, before discovering the issue, What a Colossal waste of money!

Epic Cartography: Paths of Darkness Map Pack #2
by Tristan Z. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/11/2013 14:01:56

This is a high-quality, solid product. The art is wonderfully understated, giving a fantastical feel to the maps without beating you over the head with it. There are no surprises here – if you like the previews, you'll like the maps. My only complaint is that they're a little small; I use a virtual tabletop, and I usually like my maps a little more expansive.


4/5. Would definitely buy again.

Epic Cartography: Paths of Mystery Map Pack #3

So I tried out these maps.
First of all, the maps look gorgeous - incredible work!
I also like those little spots, where my players immediately jumped on, like a half covered stone face on the ground, a small crack in a cliff, where a little dungeon might lurk.
I had some issues with printing it to scale, but the publisher helped me out on the same day I had the issue.
Everything works fine. To printing it to scale do the following (Adobe Reader 10):
You can print the maps into 4 tile pages out of the PDF by adjusting the "Page Handling" tab to "Large Tile Pages" right in the print menu. This should split the map into 4 pieces which you can print out into 8.5x11 maps and assemble.
If you like maps, you will love these!
