When it comes to map packs, in the digital age, the consumers are fortunate enough to have a lot of variety. I've used some Fiery Dragon and some Skeleton Key Games before. The only bad thing about such maps, and it's true of this one as well, is they can be ink intensive.

The good news here is that the map comes in two formats, one full color and one in black and white.

For me, I instantly thought of a certain old warhammer adventure that is on a river. Rivers are a popular place for 'dramatic' turning points. They're often a huge part of historical battles acting as a barrier or waiting until it's low enough to cross or knowing of a crossing.

The art on these is top notch and if this specific map is one you're looking for, it's well worth getting. The fact that it's scaled for 1" per grid makes it easy to use with Pathfinder or other games that use "each square equal 5'.

An Endzeitgeist.com review

This map-pack is 35 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 16 pages of full-color map and 16 of the same as b/w.

So this would be a new gorgeous full color map with a gorgeous grid - so what is on this map? We get a river, full of dynamic-looking foam and different depths, with several large rocks jutting out of it and a short section of sands on both sides - at least up to the beaver dam that can be found in the upper third of the river - the river making its way through two massive breaches in the dam.

The maps come with a grid.

Conclusion:

Water is hard to get right on maps and Tommi Salama creates water that is gorgeous - whether the dam, the jutting rocks - this map is beautiful indeed and the pdf comes fully bookmarked, which is a definite plus. This map-pack is gorgeous - Tommi Salama can be considered the heir apparent of map legend Jonathan Roberts if this pdf is any indicator. Now, personally, I think a version sans grids (or with hex-grids) would have been nice to have, but all in all, that's not enough to rate this down a whole star - hence, my final verdict will clock in at 4.5 stars, rounded up to 5 for the purpose of this platform.

Endzeitgeist out.
