They happen in every game—unexpected attacks on unsuspecting heroes. Be it a gang of thugs jumping a group that’s wandered into the worst part of town or a band of sneaky goblins and their traps along a remote forest trail, ambushes are a staple of any properly sadistic Game Master’s bag of tricks. Ambushes are best when they’re unexpected, and now you’ll never be without maps for them, thanks to GameMastery Map Pack: Ambush Sites!

This line of gaming accessories provides simple and elegant tools for the busy Game Master. Inside, you’ll find 18 captivating 5" × 8" specially coated map tiles, allowing you to use wet-erase and dry-erase markers, then remove ink with ease!

    This set includes:
  • Woodland Path
  • Back Alley
  • Narrow Bridge
  • Cavern Corridor
  • Sewer Junction

Game Masters shouldn’t waste their time sketching maps every time their players stumble into danger. With GameMastery Map Pack: Ambush Sites, you’ll be ready next time your players get in over their heads!

Good GMs can never have too many maps at their disposal, and Paizo’s GameMastery Map Packs provide high-quality gridded maps for use with both RPGs and miniatures games.

First Must Own Set of GameMastery Map Packs!

*****

I picked up three GameMastery Map Tiles sets last week - and this weekend, only one of them made an appearance on my gaming table - this one! The Ambush Map Pack is the perfect starter set for GM's looking to build their map collections as it comes with several alternate terrains.

This variety ensures that you have an encounter site for your game no matter what kind of terrain your PCs are currently traversing. Players working through a dungeon? No problem, just throw down the sewer encounter tiles and you're all set! Players making their way through an ancient forest, viola! Here are the tiles for the forest ambush!

It doesn't matter where you need an encounter - the ambush sites map pack has you covered!


Now we are cooking

I have always liked the Map Pack product line myself. I use them to complement my own hand drawn or support other flip maps or other various maps.

This new format now allows for dry/wet makers to be used on the this product and that is VERY useful for me and my gaming groups.

Ambush sites map pack is solid support map pack for various ambush's as the name suggest and I am very happy with this product. It works very well to support my Kingmaker campaign.

When will we likely see samples of this pack?

They'll pop out and surprise us when we least expect it

Spoiler:
Though given that they are set to come out in nine months, I'd expect them in the fall at the soonest


Yes. Fall is a good estimate. :)

I've updated the cover image and description; we'll add sample tiles next week.

Well the larger one looks like it could be used with the new City Streets Flip Mat on the blank side.

Cool!

EDIT: Looks like actually they can be used with the existing lines of a few of the maps....

Yes, they can. The goal of this set was to purposely make them work with existing environments, but not be a re-hash of them. Because that would be lame.


Its a Trap!

At that close range we won't last long against those Archers/assassins/black knights/armed chariots*!

This pack just showed up today.

The colors of the woodland path and stone bridge match up best with the River Crossing flip mat and can make a nice extension to the side of the map with the fallen tree. Unfortunately, the Forest flip mat was printed darker so not as useful with that.

The sewers are a nice extension for last month's city flip mat, though the alley ambush only fits on the back of that.

Overall, nice and useful.


Mine arrived today as well. I haven't opened them yet.
