Excellent detail, nice terrain tile. Only concerns I'd have, with this much detail, it could look out of place alongside a set of (less detailed) tiles from other sources, so building up a city-block with this in it may quickly point the players to this being the 'site of interest', in the same way that putting a typical RPG map down and still having numbers on various buildings can give the game away ;-) That's not a complaint with this product, it makes me realise how poor most of my other tile sets are!

The other thing I'd say is that there is a car parked (crashed? Dumped?) at the kerbside, it's one of my pet hates when maps have 'moveable' items drawn in, my players are bound to want to move the car and this one is fixed in place.

Would rate as 5 stars if the vehicle was a separate (transparent png) so I could move it away as necessary.

Beautiful encounter site though, really love the detail.

If poking around long-ruined urban buildings is part of your story, this mapset provides a derelict city block to root around in. Don't be fooled by the quite complex-looking ruin on the front cover, the actual building is quite simple.

A nice point is that the roof has fallen in, so you have a clear view of the internal layout, as well as some stairways leading down into cellars or other depths below. There's also what appears to be a lift shaft and stairs that once led upwards.

The roads around show evidence of long-term neglect, overgrown and cracked.

A somewhat strange suggestion involving subterranean ants is provided as an adventure seed; but an investigation of a long-ago incident or some post-apocalyptic scavenging seems a more likely use for this map.

As always, there's an A4 overview map and a series of maps with hex, square and no grids for miniatures use. There's also a huge JPEG image for those who have access to professional print facilities or who use a virtual table top for their gaming.
