Spice Up Your Dunes!

Whether your players are seeking a long-buried tomb, trading with a caravan of desert nomads, or hoping to find diamonds in the rough, the sands of time run too quickly for a Game Master to have to draw every grain. This Pathfinder Map Pack provides beautifully illustrated 5" × 8" map tiles that can be used to construct a variety of desert destinations. Inside, you'll find 18 richly crafted map tiles, with features like:

  • Ancient Statues
  • Cavernous Crags
  • Gleaming Oasis
  • Mysterious Trail
  • Plush Pavilions
  • Strange Sands

Game Masters shouldn't waste their time sketching maps whenever characters decide to delve into the desert. With Pathfinder Map Pack: Desert Sites, you'll always be ready to take your players into the trackless wastes—and perhaps on their last crusade!

Announced for February! Image and description are not final.

This could come in handy for chapters #4 or #5 of "Strange Aeons"...

Are any of these replicated from there?

I can only repeat myself:

I won't know if too buy this or not with only 5 samples.

The half-oasis looks nice, as does the last one, but i don't know how many combine with them.

Please show more/all images in the future.

I agree. I do notice and recognize that you may have been taking this critique into account, as you've moved up from showing just two tiles to four, but I have to agree with Marco it's still too few to make a judgment in most cases. Map Packs are seriously hindered in my buying process because of this -- I usually only ever buy them when (rarely) I get to visit a physical store and check the image on the back side. Online, not knowing what you're getting, is just too much of a risk.

Thank you for adding more pictures. This looks very good, definitely bought.

Thank you for showing all tiles! :-)

Great! Any plans for a desert flip mat with an empty side? Just sand and dunes.

Thanks for listening - additional pictures are very useful. Any chance of adding additional images for some of the existing packs? There are a few I am considering purchasing as PDF's with the Holiday discount but lack enough information.

+1

I think it would be positive for sales if the older map tiles would show all 18 tiles.
There are a lot ones where i am on the fence of buying them or not and if one or two of the yet unshown tiles are up my alley, i´ll probably buy most.

I realize this will take time and wo/manpower, would be cool if this could be done over the course of 2017.

Have a nice x-mas, everyone!


The pics make a real difference to my buying these because as a DM in the UK I can plan encounters based on the pics well before the product comes out & before I buy. Other websites such as Amazon rarely show the back cover and my FLGS does not stock map packs, so I rely on the Paizo images. Since they stopped posting the pics my purchases of map packs has reduced quite a bit. Good to see them back.

They look great, but I'm missing some empty tiles. IMHO even if you get more sets you couldn't build a big desert map.

I'd feel cheated if this had empty tiles, it is called desert sites. I'd rather see something like that in a "basic terrain multi-pack 2" flip mat which contains a blank desert side (among other blanks that aren't present in the first terrain pack, like sky), and you can layer these tiles on top of that.

Exactly. I would love to see a dedicated empty desert flipmat. Otherwise this set is not very useful

Those are not blank. One is footprints leading through the sand, the other are the footprints that lead to skeletal remains. I think both of those count as sites you can find in a desert, though often temporary.

Good gaming.

Thanks for the reply Stephen. I didn't mean to imply that those two tiles did not constitute a "site." My comment was referring to me being against a theoretical inclusion of a completely blank tile in this set, as I'd much prefer to see a blank desert flip-mat for a larger desert surface area (just the sand background pattern, so that we could lay these tiles on top of it to add our own features where we want them).

Any plans on getting something like that on the product roster? :)

You'll find that I don't speak about plans that are not on the schedule, for various reasons, but I will bring it up next we talk about products internally.
