Good stuff

****( )

I don't subscribe and will just pick up what interests me or to support the game I'm running. I really liked the caravan pack and have used that to great effect and options presented for various vehicles and steads seemed like a good match.

1. Cut-outs. I've never had to cut anything with the map-packs before so this was a first, but knew it going in. I used a model cutting board and exact-o knife for the most part, and a pair of scissors on the smaller pieces like the dogs.

2. I personnel like the flat mounts. The game I'm running (Castles & Crusades A-Series Assault on Blacktooth Ridge) has the players moving in caravan as guards. Some use mounts and I've mixed it up with Pawn mounts and WOTC token mounts. It's easier to use the flat tokens with the characters together. So this gives me more options for Calvary in the future.

3. The various animals are good variety. Gives me some options to throw weirdness into the game with a spider pulled chariot in battle, perhaps a caravan in the Darklands (Underdark or Cyclopean deeps for you WOTC and FGG gamers)pulled by lizards, or an Ogre riding a rhino.

4. Lots of wagon and chariot options. From fortune tellers, to farmers it's all there. Smaller versions of carts and the oxen give you some additional options for the game.

5. The boats are ok, but it looks like Paizo could have fit 2 rowboats on the single sheet. Not sure why they didn't as this was the product to add in cut lines and having more that one rowboat would come in handy for sea adventures and the abandon ship moment.

6. Snow/sled/sail stuff and Hang-gliders. Interesting stuff, along with the sled dogs, might have use later.

7. The steam/clockwork thing seems very specific, and of little use to me, but YMMV.

Overall: Good-stuff, and well worth it if you don't mind about 10 to 15 minutes of cutting. Recommend a few baggies for the mounts and animals. 4 Stars.


Medieval Roadkill

*( )( )( )( )

Enough with the ridiculous lines to denote one inch squares! The artwork for large beasts in this set is centered on a two inch square tile. That means a dark line runs STRAIGHT DOWN the back of the animal, ruining the art and the effect. It's like a medieval road worker didn't bother to remove the carcass before painting a line. And we're not finished yet; that's just the vertical line! A horizontal line comes right in the middle to slice the animal in quarters! Abysmal failure.

Imagine how many pages of text, illustrations, and even errata would have been saved if WotC and later Paizo would have just trusted us to measure distances with a measuring tape and not ridiculous squares. We've all see the tortured explanations for what is cover, and what isn't. We've all see the nonsensical templates for cones, etc. Imagine all these wonderful map and tile products without those ubiquitous lines running all through the beautiful artwork.

Let's buck the past: if this product is ever reprinted, ditch the lines!


So so, but not a total loss.

***( )( )

There's two major problems I find with this map pack:

1) The horses/dogs/oxen etc. are better dealt with as miniatures (paper minis do fine if you don't feel like getting a dozen and a half horses). Their presence as map tiles feels like filler.

2) Splittable tiles. In general I'd rather not have to deal with those.

3) Since we end up with splittable tiles anyway, it would be nice if the pdf version had them pre-split so they can be printed separately or used individually if doing it all inside the computer.

I don't foresee myself using this one much, but the vehicles themselves are nice enough. Pity about the above points though.


Not the best, but largely useful

****( )

This map pack does not rate as high as marketplace or rooftops, for sure, as far as usefulness is concerned. Most of the maps are fairly of fairly situational use, but if these situations arise, the will shine.

The carts, chariots and wagons that make up 8 of the 18 maps will probably see most use. Put on a fairly unspecific 'green grass' background, the will be useful for caravans, escort adventures etc. The Boat and Ship (3 cards) complement nicely to other naval themed cards while the sleds will be useful for the odd arctic themed encounters (with an upcoming AP potentially making them really shine).

The Steam Giant (3 cards) is very specialised, but if you plan an encounter with one - well, there it is.

I can't see any use for the gliders (1 card) yet, especially since they are put on a cloudy background, unless there will be larger 'aerial' maps for special flying encounters, they are a pretty odd addition to a map pack, but then again, it is only one card.

The animals included add to the carts and sleds and may be of use as mounts.

The worst part about this map pack is the fact that you would have to cut most the maps apart for use, so if you have got an affordable way to print these out in color, get the pdf, not the print version.

I rate this with a four star rating, but it is not a map pack that everybody needs, especially not in print.


Shades of Swallowed Whole :(

*( )( )( )( )

This is a rare miss for me in this line.

I like the idea of customising the battlemat, but the execution has generally been disappointing with other attempts I've seen. Sadly, this product is no exception. The trouble I foresee is with storing and accessing the appropriate vehicle, plus the added complication of lots of fiddly bits on the table (it appears the intention is for me to cut out lots of little husky tokens to pull a sled, for example which is just going to be a huge pain if they ever actually move on the battlemat).

With this specific set, I was hoping the utility would overcome the drawbacks, but another disappointment was that these werent printed on transparent plastic. As such - the background is fixed with the vehicle. (I havent used these in play yet, so perhaps it wont jar, but placing them on the various flipmats in which they might be used doesnt have me looking forward to using them).

There are some exceptions - the boats will, lets face it, always be used on a water background, so I doubt there'll be an issue there. Likewise the sleds on snow and I can live with the hang-gliders having a sky "background" despite the lack of logic. All in all though, I suspect these wont get a lot of use at my table, other than the boats.

Another negative, stupid as it sounds, is the need to cut everything out myself. I'm not particularly good at stuff like that - I either do it quickly and get a bad result or painstakingly slowly, making me grumpy. I guess there's no way they could be perforated, but it's another reason for me to rate the product low.

1 star feels too tough, 2 stars feels too generous. Nonetheless, this is a (rare) paizo product I wish they hadnt bothered with.
