The wild forests hold dangers as deadly as those of any dungeon, and this gorgeous map sets the scene for memorable woodland encounters. From the secluded clearing to the inviting pool to the trackless wild, Flip-Mat: Forest is a perfect set-piece for any campaign, useful for random encounters or well-planned ambushes. Don’t go into the woods alone!

This portable, affordable map measures 24" x 30" unfolded, and 8" x 10" folded. Its coated surface can handle any dry erase, wet erase, or even permanent marker. Usable by experienced GMs and novices alike, GameMastery Flip-Mats fit perfectly into any Game Master’s arsenal!

On tabletops across the world, the Flip-Mat Revolution is changing the way players run their fantasy roleplaying games! Why take the time to sketch out ugly scenery on a smudgy plastic mat when dynamic encounters and easy clean-up is just a Flip away?

Beyond Awesome

5/5

This is a bread and butter map that I use almost once every night.
General and yet varied enough that it covers soooo many bases.
I think every DM I know uses this map to excess.... for good reason.


Still usable

4/5

Paizo did make this map a little too dark (thus 4 stars instead of 5), but I still find it usable. I can easily see the marker on this map.

In addition the darkness can add to the setting.

The reason this is a good map is because both sides are useful and are excellent variants. I use this map a lot.


Sorry, but no (too dark).

1/5

The map is not only much darker than on the product images (which are already kind of dark in this case), not only too dark for dry erase markers to be of any use, but its actually so dark that its really hard to discern the details of the pictured forest scenery AT ALL.

Ok, that last statement was a slight hyperbole - the map is certainly somewhat useable, but you'll need good lighting, and as I said - forget about dry erase markers.

Disappointing!

We believe that if we offered our Map Packs in PDF form, a significant number of gamers would choose the PDF edition exclusively over the print edition, which would mean smaller print runs for the print edition, which—since print costs are based largely on volume—would in turn mean higher costs for the print edition, which would lead to even smaller sales for it, which would mean we wouldn't have a profitable line anymore.

Then why not offer a PDF version for those who buy the Physical copy from your site?

Same with the Gamemastery Cards and Map Packs

For one thing, that would annoy retailers, as they can't offer the same. (And this is not an appropriate place for the discussion of allowing retailers to offer PDFs with print sale; we've had plenty of threads on that topic already—no perfect solution has yet been devised, but there are some interesting tests going on.)

I understand, though annoying since I never buy from retailers.... well rarely....

Many of us could use PDF versions of these and it is sad it can't happen for that reason.


My scanner works real well.


Vic is correct in stating that it IS darker than the previous Flip-mats for matching. This is due to a slight difference or evolution of my illustrating style and techniques. The paths and "most" of the tree-lines line up, not 100%, but we're all using our imaginations, right?

Just happy they will work together. I probably won't use them like that often enough to matter.

anyone know if a print shop can do a color print of pdf on one sheet of cardboard?

You should be able to get a print on foamcore, Qstor.

They were indeed designed that way. Unfortunately, the new one came back a bit darker than the others, so it's not as visually flawless as we'd have liked, but stuff does line up right.

Worked out really well for me today.

I bought this one in pdf today because I figured I could adjust the colors and then print it out instead of trying to track down a really dark one on ebay or wherever.

WOW.
Opened the file and just hit the Auto Level Tonal Range button on the software....exported to pdf, ran it over OfficeMax and holy crap...its the best one of the PDF's Ive printed out yet.

I dont think Paizo messed this one up so much as the printer should have adjusted the colors before going to press.
I worked in offset printing for many years and I know that even before the digital age it was an easy enough process to correct colors before printing a big job.

Today its just a couple mouse clicks from a terrible print to dazzling colors, so there really was no excuse for the printer not to notice how dark the end product was going to be and show the Paizo reps that it could be brightened up a LOT and look 100 times better.
