Slums + Rooftops + Marketplace = Triple Threat of GM Map Packs!

*****

Buy this set in conjunction with the Rooftops and Marketplace map packs and you will be prepared to lay out any village, town or city that your PC's come across. When I first started planning my map pack purchases, I was disappointed to find that it is difficult to lay out a scenario properly using only one map pack.

Once I added a few different packs to my collection, the true power of the map packs were revealed as they combine in a near infinite variety of layouts. Now with my city triple threat of map packs in tow, I can lay out any town, large or small, from Absolam to Kaer Maga without any trouble!

If your PC's are headed into town, get your triple threat of map packs going today and you'll be prepared for anything they throw at you.


PDF works really well

*****

I bought the Village flip map, but I wanted some more areas of my village, particularly residential. I figured that the villagers were basically poor, so I figured the shacks and marketplace in particular would be exactly what I needed.

I bought the PDF version because it seemed silly to buy physical tiles and then cut them up. I went ahead and printed out the tiles I needed, then cut out the specific pieces I wanted to use -- for example, I used the shacks themselves, but not the rest of the tiles they were on. I mounted the printouts to posterboard, and cut it to size. Now I have convenient placeable buildings and such to use as a second part of the village on the blank side of the flip map. For some of them, I cut out chunks of the crumbing building roof and mounted them on the reverse side of the building placeables, so I can show exterior at first and interior if the PCs go in.

Combined with the Sandpoint Townsfolk PDF paper minis (and the Village flip map), I have a flexible, very reasonably priced village to use as a home base for my campaign.

Side note: the PDF version includes a version showing each area complete, without tile breaks or the white arrows showing how the tiles connect. For the 8x10 placeables in particular, this is perfect, because you can print it on one unbroken sheet of paper or cardstock with no arrows. The one downside is that there is text on the edge of the tile identifying the purchaser, but since it's on the edge and not right in the middle of a multi-tile building like the arrows, this didn't really bother me.


I Like This Set A Lot!

****( )

Curiosity made me buy this set before preview images for all the tiles were up, and I must say that I like this set a lot.

The Old Church is definitely a highlight, as is the Low Market. I even like the Muddy Road! I can place it between the market and the shacks and have a nice little town section.

The art is very good, if a little drab color-wise. Some of the locations may be less useful than others. But one day when I need that Rat-infested Landfill, I'll have it!


****( )

Rating on, compatibility, art, user friendliness, material and necessity/location.

4 of 5 for compatibility

Take a look at the Discussion to see pictures
Works quite well with wizard products such as DU2 Streets of shadown and City of Peril.

5 of 5 for art

Art is fantastic hits the location spot on the players have no questions as to where they are if you place them on this map.

4 of 5 user friendliness

These are on card stock not heavy card like dungeon tiles so you will need to tape the four parters together or have grip mat to place them on.

3 of 5 material

Card stock is easily marked and will slide with the slightest of nudges.

5 of 5 location

It always annoys me that all adventures have to be staged in 2 by 3 square halls underground.
I have had more than one thief chased threw a slum market.
this is an item you want for your adventures if your a visal gamer.


Muddy Road, really Paizo?

**( )( )( )

Two tiles that have essentially nothing on them, just dirty looking tiles, no thanks. This pack does fail to live up to expectations, if the title had been run down village or ghost town, I could actually see it, as slums I have to side with other reviewers who say they fail to capture the feel of high density urban living. That isn't to say that they aren't beautifully produced and easy to look at, but they really just aren't slums. And then those arrows to tell you hey this goes here, how annoying, nothing says immersive like opaque arrows on the scene.
