Each month, Pathfinder Maps give you full color, miniatures-scale play surfaces, rendered by some of the best cartographers in the industry, to spice up your next adventure. Releases will alternate between Pathfinder Map Packs, which contain 18 themed full-color 5 x 8-inch map tiles you can rearrange to fit your encounter, and Pathfinder Flip-Mats, which are double-sided gaming mats you can draw on with virtually any marker.

With your ongoing Pathfinder Maps subscription, we'll automatically send you every new Map Pack and Flip-Mat as it's released, charging your credit card automatically as we ship each volume. You only need to sign up once, and never need to worry about renewal notices or missed maps!

After we ship your subscriber copy, you'll be able to download a PDF of that map for FREE! (Note that you only get free PDFs for releases shipped as part of your subscription; you do not get free PDFs when purchasing older volumes that are not sent as subscriber copies.)

If you have other Paizo subscriptions, you can combine them to save money on shipping.

Mappacks

****( )

Gamesmastery mappacks are great for tabletop RPGs. Some sets are more location specific such as Haunted Mansion, whilst other sets are more versatile and can be set up in a number of different ways. They can be combined easily, for example I laid out an entire town from various sets including slums, shops, town, graveyard and others. As a DM the sets often give me inspiration when designing scenarios and combat encounters. It would be great for Pazio to produce more generic terrain sets, like Forest, with interesting and/or difficult terrain features, such as various planar terrain, desert, broken lands, hills etc, and a set of castle walls or a keep set for castle/keep scenarios. Recently purchased Lost Island which is good as ever, but my favorite set is Ruins, the artwork and design is very good.


Already don't know how I lived without these...

*****

Some of you may know, I claim to be an "old school" guy. I have used everything from graph paper to laminated dress cutting boards, to battlemats. I've started to get these maps (both Packs and Flip) and I can't believe it took me this long to use them! Very versatile (with a little imagination) and endlessly repeatable. We've had several waterfront battles in our Kingmaker campaign, and the players love them!


These maps bring a game to life and Make a GM's life easy.

****( )

It's nice to not to have to draw every facet of an adventure.

The most useful set of maps for me is the boats and the shop fronts. Whilst having the one ship shown with the levels is great. For ship-to-ship combat especially with moving vessels, winds, realism and adding drama (as they drift apart), nothing beats being able to move the boats themselves instead of drawing outlines on your own grid. You can show the vessel moving in.

I purchase the pdf's; print off the required vessel, laminate and then cut to the shape that suits the vessel. Then with a ocean flip-mat you then have a really enjoyable encounter.

As for the Shops - it's a quality touch that the shops floor plans are identical to some of the flip maps of the city streets.

These maps are a great tool at convention play; for the speed they offer during a session and they look great in your home game as you can 'give' your players the boat they purchase.


Another great map!

*****

I have been scoring these maps for years. The first one I bought was the City Square: http://paizo.com/products/btpy8ot2?GameMastery-FlipMat-City-Square

The quality on cartography has only improved. The early maps are great and useful but the illustration left much to be desired. This new map is an example of how GameMastery has stepped up their game.

Even if you don't use this as a pirate ship boarding a merchant vessel, you can use it for a PC ship throughout a campaign. Highly recommend this one.


More flip-maps, less map packs

***( )( )

I think the title of my review says it all. I love flip-maps, but I find most map packs would be better as a flip-map(s). As a result, the subscription would have more value if there were a lot less map packs.

For me, most map packs don't have a lot of value. There are problems with map packs: they don't store well, tiles come apart all over the table (which is a pain, I have to tape tiles together which make them harder to transport), and when I remove the (scotch) tape sometimes it removes the image from the map as well. I strongly prefer flip-maps.

Sometimes, multiple tiles in a map pack make sense. For example the "Mines" map pack was useful (but only if it comes with a PDF!). Map packs can also be used to provide good variation for flip-maps (for example, adding a second story to a flip-map like the "City Flip-map" is useful).

However, most map packs would be better if you either created multiple smaller flip-maps or you combined multiple map pack tiles into one big flip-map. For example, the Wizard's Tower map pack would have been much better of if you combined all the tower levels into a two-sided flip-map. (I would gladly buy the flip-map version of this map pack, even though I own the map pack!).

If you do create smaller flip-maps for map packs, I'd like to see them made with thinner material if possible, so they're easier to store and unfold. This is desirable as long as it doesn't overly damage the durability.

Like I said, I love flip-maps but I have the following general feedback about them.

In flip-maps, I want to see the interiors of buildings, I don't want to see rooftops (with the interiors in a map pack). Because you don't show the interior, there is limited value in Flip-Maps such as "Necropolis" and "City" (although City probably sells really well, because we have nothing better). If you want to make a map pack to *support* a flip-map (such as adding variant interiors or second stories), this makes sense, but I don't want to see roof tops in my flip-maps, I want details. Recent flip-maps seem to have made this change.

Anyway, that's my feedback, thanks for listening.
