Versatile and Handsome

5/5

Magic Academy is a map pack I really appreciate because it's far superior than anything I could draw myself (unlike, say, the simple ability to draw parallel lines needed to duplicate the Road or River map packs). The back panel shows six configurations of the tiles: a large lecture theatre, a spell-dueling hall, a laboratory, a dormitory, a classroom, and a headmaster's office. Although there are the requisite arcane symbols and summoning circles, this map pack is more versatile than you might think, as the offices and classrooms could easily stand in for an elite boarding school, a bardic college, the Sincomakti School of Sciences in Ustalav, or any other institution of learning and study. The detail is impressive, as it's easy to distinguish book shelves, torch sconces, and even individual scrolls and quills on the tables. Drawing classrooms and lecture halls is time-consuming, and this map pack makes it a snap and a worthwhile purchase. The only addition I had to make was drawing hallways leading to the classrooms, for example, in case an encounter spilled out (two tiles makes for an intimate combat scene!). I used Magic Academy for the module Academy of Secrets (which it was specifically designed for) as well a Beginner's Box mission for my kid. Each time, it worked quite well, and I certainly envision using it again.


A guilty pleasure

4/5

I admit to having bought this set but never yet used it. They're pretty specialized, I admit. Could maybe be a wizard's sanctum or Pathfinder training lodge of some type. But fundamentally, they would have one particular use for a single setting which we all know but need not speak aloud. Someday perhaps I shall run *that* campaign . . .

Anyway, the set is gorgeous though. You've got a classroom, an alchemical laboratory, a magical dueling or summoning 'range', a library, a dormitory and a wizard's study or office. One of the more wonderfully detailed sets out there.

The product image and description have been updated to match the finished product, and sample images have been added.


Question: Will this be available to retail stores next weekend at Free RPG day? I plan on picking up something that day in addition to the goblin adventure. This and the Hellscapes map pack if they still have it would be rather ideal.

FreeRPG Day is this Saturday, I'll look for it when I go shopping.

For this one and the others that have a pdf, will the pdfs print off as 1-inch squares?

Even if they're off a little, you can always adjust the zoom percentage to make them spot on.

They should be fine so long as you don't have your printer set to scale things.

Hi.... I am from germany. I have every game mastery map and I have a question. Why do you not put the right names in your samples of the maps? The maps before every map has a name what kind of map it was... sorry for my bad grammar. I hope you understand what I mean?
Right now if I click to the sample map of magic academy I read "preview", but I do not know what kind of map it is?!? ... ok, sometimes I can see... oh, thats an archmages room for example, but sometimes I am not sure, if it is the right map... could you please change this, like it was before? I do not think thats a lot of work. :)
Thanks at paizo, I am a really fan of everything you do. Keep going on with pathfinder, D&D 3.5 rules are the best!!! :)))

I think what you're asking about is the file name of the preview images. It really just depends on whoever adds the product image. We don't have standardized naming conventions for images we add to the website. Also, the person adding the product images can be one of a few different staff members (and some may not know what the room is intended to be specifically).
