Battlepad Map - Bridge

This Battlepad map features a river and a wooden bridge. It's a very simple map to draw, but would be great for a quick skirmish game. It's shown here with a Lizardman raiding party about to clash with the local militia. 

The sheet used for the map is currently being funded on Kickstarter. The campaign has already met its goal and closes Today in less than 4 hours!

This Battlepad map features a mountain path that leads to a small mine. while drawing it I imagined it to be run by a tough, mean gang of seven dwarves.

Battlepad Map - Dungeon Toll Point

This Battlepad map features a small section of an underground road. The road is blocked in the centre of the map by a cave-in. The only way to get through is by paying a toll to the Hobgoblin unit that have control of the passageway though. The Hobgoblins are highly organised and keep a series of strong steel gates in the area locked until they receive payment. 

The sheet used for the map is currently being funded on Kickstarter. The campaign has already met its goal and closes on Monday 30th June.

Parklife

I've been taking my daughter to the park a couple of times a week while the UK enjoys what is shaping up to be its best summer in quite a few years. As she plays, I sit quite happily on a bench and scribble gaming notes, ideas, and maps. Some days I come home with very little, but today I was rather pleased with my efforts.  I'll get a few of these worked up in pen and also do some A2 versions over the next couple of days.



















Meanwhile, in Kickstarter land the Battlepad project has reached its goal and the 1st Stretch Goal. There's still 5 days to go, so it should easily make the 2nd Stretch Goal (less than £50 to go as I type).

Battlepad Maps PDF

I've released a PayWhatYouWant PDF on RPGNow.com to support the A2 Battlepad Kickstarter. Battlepad Maps is a collection of 12 hand-drawn fantasy maps. Two versions of each map are included, one blank, and one with title, scale and numbering added. The maps are ideal for dropping into an existing campaign, and may easily be extended or altered to suit your requirements. Each map is drawn on a 23x16 grid to match theA2 Battlepad sheets.

Battlepad Floorplans - DMG Sample Dungeon

Today's map isn't actually a map but a set of floorplans cut from a couple of A2 battlepad sheets. The dungeon is the sample one from page 95 of the Dungeon Masters Guide. I cut the floorplans just to show another use of the Battlepad sheets. Using them this way is great for creating large dungeons.  The portion of the dungeon shown here is almost 4'x4' so drawing it on a standard Battlemat or even a larger Megamat presents problems. 

The sheets used for the floorplans are currently being funded on Kickstarter.
