Generic World Maps No. 1

One of the easiest ways for a referee to set the scene for their players is the use of maps, especially planetary maps. These allow the adventure to move from space to the ground and form the basis of adventures on the surface of worlds. The maps contained in this book are designed to be printed, written on and customized for your needs, they are able to be printed at A4 size but can easily go to A3 as well. I have also included the JPEG files which you are welcome to modify and use as well.

Building the maps
Each map is built from a fractal generator and then retouched using Photoshop. The standard Mongoose template is then overlaid to enable the calculation of distance. The colors are representative of different terrains and the shading represents mountains however any and all of this can be interpreted as you wish, its up to you.

Thers are fourteen world maps for you to customise to your adventure. This first volume is based around earthlike worlds plus a few more extreme ones thrown in.

One of the toolbox items I've been looking for. Would buy more bundles like this of generic maps which cover the spectrum of surface & atmosphere types as well. Nice job. My only recommendation is that you make the hex icons the same scale as the actual map hexes (they are currently slightly larger) so that they can be more easily copy/pasted to the map for custom maps.

Original electronic
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.
