I will be running this AP (not starting for about a year!) and these files are really great. Thanks for sharing!

CNB,

At present I feel that the chessboard gives away its treasure far too easily. The skill checks are easily attained.

I believe Erik had a nice system for determining who had won a dragonchess game, and you could use something similiar here. I am thinking about using Bluff, Knowledge arcana and proffesion (gambler). The DC's should be set higher.

Also, what happens when the board wins??

It's not a skill check; it's an Intelligence check. Perhaps the DC 7 is too easy (for the lowest benefit), but is a DC 23 Intelligence check (for the highest benefit) really easily attained?

Storm Giant cleric.

I took one of those on-line "what would your stats be?" tests. And much to my surprise, Wisdom won out. And giants are just cool (and not off-limits, according to the first post).

But, for a race with a lower LA, a Goliath or Dwarf.

A key determining factor on poster sizes is is our printer's ability to fold and insert them into magazines - I'm just not sure we have the flexibility, I'm afraid.

Thanks for the info.! I would rather have the poster in a non-standard size than not have a poster at all. :)

I still haven't decided what to do with mine. Cut? Fold? Buy bigger frames? Jeez, I need to be more decisive.

I was going to frame my GH ones for my wall, but they're 21x30. I found some frames that are 20x30. The next standard size up appears to be 24x36.

Does the 21x30 map dimension include the overlap area left on the map so when you stich them together so they fit perfectly?

If so you might just cut from this section.

As for mine, after stiching them together, I put flat on my kitchen table then put a transparent plastic over it so when I need to work on my campain I dont have to unroll the map again and again, and with the plastic cover I can even work out my campain while having lunch :)

I hadn't really looked at the overlap. I will double check this weekend (see, I still haven't framed 'em).

If anyone is still sending these out, please send me a copy, too.

Thanks!

Well, I haven't framed them yet. I am still agonizing over whether to buy new frames (I bought 20x30 frames) or lose 1" of the map (due to cutting or folding). The larger frame size would just look silly (because I refuse to spend the money to mat poster maps), but I really don't want to mutilate my maps to fit in the almost-perfectly-sized 20x30 frames. If only that decorative border ran along the top and bottom of the posters, instead of the side. I could chop that off without a a second thought!

I'm glad you have your priorities straight--first item out, the FR map! :)

Love all the setting posters we've gotten in Paizo magazines over the last few years.

But (there's always a "but")....the size drives me nuts.

I was going to frame my GH ones for my wall, but they're 21x30. I found some frames that are 20x30. The next standard size up appears to be 24x36.

If you do any posters in the future, can you make the sections a standard poster size, so we can buy standard sized frames? I think you've mentioned that you probably won't be doing any posters in the near future, but I decided to mention it just in case. Thanks for any consideration.

As it is now, I will have a lot of wasted space in a really big frame, or I will have to trim 1" off the poster. And it's 1" off the actual map, not the decorative border on the sides. Neither option is that appealing, but both are better (financially, that is) than custom framing.

Erik:

Is there any chance we could get the Key to the Greyhawk map as a .pdf download? I really don't want to cut up my magazine, and I'd like to frame and hang the key next to the posters (which I'm framing).

Thanks for the maps--they're great!
