Moleskin Maps 03

I am now the owner of all four collections of Moleskin Maps, produced by +Matt Jackon at Chubby Monster Games, and I wanted to take this opportunity to provide a short comment regarding them.

Mr. Jackson has provided four excellent sets of what appear to be hand-drawn maps (if I understand correctly, they are inspired by maps that he had originally drawn in his Moleskine, thus the name).

There are 11 maps in volumes I & II, and 10 maps each in volumes III & IV. Most of them are underground caverns, although there are also a campsite (possibly two, depending on your interpretation of the map, a small village and a farm in volume I, as well as some other non-underground locations in the other volumes.

Each volume is a pdf with maps, and a location key sheet for the GM to set up what the map is going to represent.

If you visit Matt's blog, you can find samples of his work, to see if you like what you see.

In addition to a nicely laid out pdf, each volume also has a zip file containing high resolution PNG files, which you can use in your virtual table tops, or print out as needed for your not so virtual tabletops.

The price is very reasonable on these, and I highly recommend them to GM's who need some inspiration for locations.

Matt Jackson releases his third volume of Moleskin Maps. If you are in the need for maps, and if your gamer you can never have enough maps, plop down the $2.99 of fake money (cause when you buy stuff over the internet it doesn't really count) and receive 10 maps and each map has a write up sheet to make quick work of an adventure.

These maps are ideal if you're a GM and need something quick for your game night. I've used Matt's maps several times and what's great about them is they are small and manageable at a glance. And don't confuse their small size with blandness. Each map has its own unique personality. When I look at Matt's maps I intuitively think that's where the roper goes, loot there, good place for a trap and maybe a room for some grunts for the players to kill. Bam! Within 10 seconds of looking at his maps I have an adventure. It's like magic.

If you starting or in the middle of a campaign do yourself a favor and pick up Moleskin Maps: Volume Three or two or one or all of them. It will make your adventure planning easier so you have more time to plan out your next TPK. For the low price of $2.99 you're getting hell of a good value for your money.

A brilliant idea for an encounter when the GM wants to add something extra to a campaign, or even for those times when gamers drop over and want to play something on the spot. Each location includes a GM sheet with spaces to fill in details – Background, Key Locations, Encounters, and more, and thumbnails of the maps are reproduced on the in the corner for making notations. This is a fantastic idea for busy GMs who don’t have the time to build an entire encounter scenario for the upcoming game, or need just a bit of an inspiration boost.

The inclusion of maps in larger format for use in virtual table tops is a great bonus, and something that I hope will become more common with all RPG products in the future.
