Fend off invasion or throw a festival upon this sweeping tactical map depicting the central square of a fantasy town! Designed specifically for use with the opening encounter of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game's Rise of the Runelords Adventure Path but suitable for any urban engagement, this durable accessory sets a central scene for any tabletop fantasy campaign!

This portable, affordable map measures 24" x 30" unfolded, and 8" x 10" folded. Its coated surface can handle any dry erase, wet erase, or even permanent marker. Usable by experienced GMs and novices alike, GameMastery Flip-Mats fit perfectly into any Game Master's arsenal!

On tabletops across the world, the Flip-Mat Revolution is changing the way players run their fantasy roleplaying games! Why take the time to sketch out ugly scenery on a smudgy plastic mat when dynamic encounters and easy clean-up is just a Flip away?

Heheheh

I certainly hope it's a mock-up. It looks like a screen shot from Berzerk.

Please disregard the momentary interruption in the orbital mind-control lasers.

I mean the image is fixed.

That's it. I need a new job. All of these Gamemastery Maps over the next year look full of win. #subscriptionwhenIcan

Please let me know if this has 2 different levels on both sides or if one side is blank?. I hate those blank sides.

Thank you much Joanna.


What I dont understand is that we had already a mat called "prison" last year. This mat watch post seem like a duplicate for it. How many prisons motives are necessary?

Wouldnt it be better to have more exotic mats with new motives like desert villages or asian city?

Paizo Employee Webstore Gninja Minion

We've changed this product to "Town Square". Image is still a mock-up.

Nevertheless, I like Enpeze's idea of a desert nomad village flipmat.


Pathfinder Maps Subscriber

I second the need for more exotic locales. This looks lovely, but I have more generic city maps than I know what to do with!

This appears to exactly represent the town square in front of the Sandpoint Cathedral from the Rise of the Runelords Adventure Path. I think this is awesome!

I'd really like to see at least some of the mundane locations in the Adventure Paths and Modules feature the GameMastery Flip-Maps and Map Packs. Heck, it would be cool if the maps were even featured in the Pathfinder Society Sanctioned Modules.

I really like using props in my games, but I don't do a lot of custom adventure design. I have many of the flip-maps and map packs but I almost never find a reason to use them.

I really like this. A lot of the city/town square maps tend to look... well... too square. This looks more the way I imagine a town square to look. The side with the wall could be handy for a few different scenarios as well.

That's exactly what it is, in fact. One side of the map will be used specifically for (Runelords spoilers follow!)...

Spoiler:
... the goblin attack at the start of Burnt Offerings, while the same map as well as the one on the back will be used for the stone giant/dragon attack at the start of Fortress of the Stone Giants. The maps are even going to be reprinted in the upcoming Anniversary edition of Runelords.

I know that many would disagree with me, but I'm all for the maps in the APs being reprinted in flip mat style. If I could have my wish, all of them would be printed so that I'd never have to use the dry-erase/battlemat nonsense.

James,

Awesome news regarding the upcoming anv tie-in.

I used a map I found online when I ran this encounter, but if I ever run the game again. These will defiantly be the ones I use.

thanks!
RM


Awesome. I don't even play RotRL but I'm going to pick up one of these in case I do one day. I applaud Paizo's continuing efforts to tie the game mastery line to the adventure paths. Does Paizo listen to its customers? Yes. As a result, they are getting my money.

hey, just wondering, is this big enough for minitures??

Yeah, their flip mat/map pack lines are made with 1 inch squares for the standard miniatures.

As Sniggevert pointed out, all of the Pathfinder Flip-Mats and Map Packs are scaled for 1-inch:5-feet tabletop play (whatever system you're playing).


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Thanks guys.

BTW is there any plans to make more full sized maps for rise of the runelords? I bought the poster map pack and was disappointed with how small they were. I have a huge gaming table and I want to use it.

There are not any plans at this time.

I bought this and several other map on sale. Suffice to say this town has now survived zombie horde attack, orcs, evil fey, mischievous goblins and a miniature flaming tarrasque (inside joke at our table)


Any prospect of this Runelords friendly flip mat being reprinted? The PDF is great but having the real thing is even better ;-)

Paizo Employee Webstore Gninja Minion

We don't currently have any plans to reprint the Flip-Mat.

That's a shame, for this and many other maps. I notice that any given map doesn't stay in circulation long. And the .pdf is of little use - I mean, not only do you have to find a way to print it yourself, you also get none of the advantage of having the physical flip mat.

I honestly hope that Paizo will rethink its decision to not reprint this map, or others. I'm certainly not paying the $200 and some dollars I saw this advertised for on E-bay.

Andoran

Has anyone bought the .pdf of this? If so, have you printed it on a large-format printer? Does it have to be upscaled and, if so, what's the quality like? Does it pixilate very much? Just curious as to the quality of the .pdf when printed out to be used as a battle map.

Andoran

So, I went ahead and spent the 8.99. Great quality, no pixilation. I suppose if there's one downside it's that I can't use dry or wet markers on them, unless I pay to have it laminated. But, now that I can get out of print flip-mats, I suppose that's an okay trade.

You also get them without creases, though I'm sure they're a bit harder to transport. If only I had access to a large-format printer... *sigh*
