This is definitly a five star product. The price to gaming value ratio is almost unbelievably high, even when compared to 0one's other excellent products in the Blueprints line.
What you get is six maps depicting the (ground floor only) interiors of six large abbey buildings. In addition, you get another 8.5 x 11 map that shows the whole abbey grounds. There are no wasted maps, such as depictions of natural cave squiggles or dungeons. That makes The Abbey a larger product than the other files in the Blueprints line, but at the same price.
Liked: For less than two bucks you get either the basis for a campaign (based in an isolated abbey that might be run by paladins, martial artists or the traditional medieval monks) or one excellent adventure location with lots of room for monsters to hide and horrible evil to lurk. Plenty of room, in other words, to kill stuff and hunt for treasure. You don't have to use the maps as a set. You could use each map as a distinct building....six distinct buildings. Not bad. Not bad at all!
Disliked: It seems logical...and even obvious...that the exterior views of the buildings should have been individual maps as well, allowing gamers to tape together an exterior map of the entire abbey on the same scale as the interior maps. Why this was not included is a mystery, since the maps are already there...just in 1/6 the size they ought to be. Perhaps a photocopier might blow them up to the correct scale...? This too-obvious feature should have been included. What was it going to cost? Pixels?
Even with this quibble I have no qualms in rating The Abbey at five stars. The Abbey gives me more than one night's worth of high-quality gaming, and a fine foundation for my own campaign ideas. 0one comes through again, reinforcing their position as the kings of pdf game value. You will not regret buying this product.
