The Hamlet

DramaScape Modern Volume 36

This is a 40 x 40 inch Battlemap of a Small Hamlet, it has Hex, Square and No Overlays, it also includes the VTT files for online play, and a 360 view of the Hamlet.

“It is time to push the Allies back to the English Channel. This small farming village is but the first step to total victory.”

The Hamlet is a large-scale map of a farming village. Scale is each one inch/square/hex is approximately 10 to 15 feet. This map can be used as the layout of a village for use in a fantasy game or it could be used as the site of a large-scale or mass combat battle. The Hamlet includes a 360-degree panoramic view of the Hamlet from a perspective as if standing in the northern part of the village. 

The Hamlet is intended for use in fantasy, historical, and modern games (adding some farm machinery can make it feel more modern or it could be a farming community than shuns such technology like the Amish).

The major terrain feature of the hamlet is a river that varies from 10-30 feet (depending on the scale decided upon) in width spanned by five wooden bridges (two in the north, one in the center, and two in the south parts of the river). These wooden bridges are likely able to support wagons, horses, etc., but might strain under the weight of heavy vehicles such as tanks. Most of the hamlet is on the western bank with some houses and fields on the eastern bank north and south of the main village. In any type of conflict, controlling these bridges will be crucial to preventing the enemy from crossing the river and entering the main hamlet in the center of the map. 

This terrain feature allows you to designate two zones for deployment, the defender’s zone in the western bank and an attacker’s zone in the eastern bank. The defenders need to stop the attackers from breaking through to the western edge of the map to win and the attackers need to overrun the hamlet and breakthrough to the other side to win. 

Some example scenarios could be the Allies set up on the western side with German forces attacking them from across the Rur River during the Battle of the Bulge. Or the Germans are set up on the western side of the hamlet with the Russians crossing the Oder River as they approach Berlin. Heavily armored vehicles like tanks crossing will sink the bridges, but lighter vehicles like trucks, jeeps, and lightly armored scouts can make it across. Field engineers who can erect a metal bridge might also be of great importance to the attackers to establish a route to get heavy tanks and tank destroyers across the river. Will history remain the same or change as a result of the outcome of these battles?

Format

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
