Sometimes Forgettable is Better for Terrain

***( )( )

Hill Country is a standard-size Paizo flip-mat (24x30 inches). One side depicts a path leading between a couple of ridges and into a cave, while the other side shows a high rocky-outcropping and a narrow path leading to the top of a bluff. I've used the mat a couple of times (as both a player and as a GM), and my verdict is that it's okay, but not great. It's very pretty (especially the side with the winding path leading to the hill top) with great texture and colour for the ground, boulders, hillsides, etc. As always, the ability to use any kind of marker is fantastic. However, one problem I have with some of the Paizo flip-mats is that the scenes they depict are almost too memorable! I want to use them again and again without players joking about how they've come to the exact same distinctive hilltop or next to (yet another) group of rune-etched standing stones. I also don't like how both sides of the mat have paths cutting through them, because sometimes I like my wilderness adventures to be track-free and it's not as much fun to have stuff like difficult terrain if a path nicely takes the PCs around it (plus, I can easily draw a path on any map). Still, depending on your needs you might get more out of this than I have. I will suggest that GMs sit down before an encounter and mark elevations (and Climb DCs) of features on the mat--it will save a lot of time during the session when PCs try to scale cliffsides, ask how tall a boulder is, etc.

Will we eventually see what the maps (both sides) look like? Not saying with any sarcasm, just truly asking.

Probably closer to its release date, as this is five months away. :)

Darn. Now I have to wait for the one that has lodgings available...

Looks cool. I've been waiting for more terrain maps for wilderness/ outdoor encounters. I'm already planning hooks and designing encounters up that fell.


Looks great, and potentially very useful! I keep thinking y'all should do one that's vertical, like a cliff face. There's nothing out there like that, but it could be a source of a great encounter.

I love the convenience of flip-mats, especially ones like this of outdoor areas that are often difficult to sketch.

Given that, I often find that I need a larger area than a single map can encompass. I would like to see maps like this with the two sides able to connect together to form a single larger map. I would buy two of many maps if they had this feature.

Even better would be two flip-mats with each side able to connect to one side of the other map. For example, two maps each with one side of forest that connects to other map's forest side and one side of desert that connects to the other map's desert side. This would allow larger areas to be represented without having to buy two copies of the same map. Similarly, maps of buildings where different floors are represented on each side could instead be two maps with one floor of the building on one side and something else on the other side. This would eliminate the necessity to buy two of the same building map to accommodate party members being on both floors simultaneously.

I guess that would be a map of Comal County TX on one side and downtown Austin, TX on the other?


Hilly terrain! Just what I've been hoping for, thanks!

Or a certain fictional city on a fictional island just off the New Jersey coast.

This looks like a good one, and I'd also echo roonechr's request above - planning for these to be 'connectable' to others is nice, much like the mine/dungeon stuff for the map-packs.

Anyone know what the black space on the upper left side represents?

A hill or cliff face with a cave/tunnel going into it.

Looking at it now, that makes sense...thanks!

Map Pack: Cave Tunnels links up quite well with that cave entrance, by the way.
