I just bought this item from the email I received. There are no separate maps. The product and the email says there are 10 GM maps. Download had only the PDF

Hi Mohit,
Thanks for purchasing this product. The GM maps are included inside the PDF in the encounter's description (not a separate download).

That is extremely disceiving as I too just bought the pdf thinking that the maps came as a separate download. How are we supposed to use the maps in the pdf in a game.


I now know reading the description that it states that the maps must be bought so my bad for not reading the description … having said that, if the publication is designed to be used with the maps then INCLUDE THE MAPS!!!

I ended up finding reference to the bundle that included the maps for a cheaper cost than buying the maps themselves … bought that AS WELL, as the pdf on its own is really only half the product, so I guess you scored twice the sale from me ☹️

Hi Ken,

The reason for this release method is twofold:

1. Similar products (with maps included with the PDF as an additional download) sell anywhere from $10-20. Instead, we decided to release the encounters & maps separately, and then set a 'combined' price at $9.99. This allows those who don't want or need maps an option to buy this product without them.

2. Our cartographers receive royalty payments on the maps, so by having them as their own product & discounted in a bundle, we can ensure everyone is being fairly paid for their work.

We're sorry for any confusion this has caused. We are always open to feedback, and will discuss making this more clear for future releases. If you have any other questions or concerns, please join our discord server ( ), and we'll can discuss this further.

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.
