Lairs Map Pack Makes the GM Must Have List!

5/5

When I buy a new map pack, I ask myself two questions: Can I use this in my current campaign? Will I be able to use these maps in other scenarios?

If the answer to both questions is "yes", then I scoop the map pack up and put it to work on my tabletop! The Lairs map pack makes my list because it has lair maps for five different environments. That means that no matter where my PCs find themselves, I can slap down a random (or even planned) encounter with a beautifully illustrated map in full color and we're ready to go!

If you are looking to build your map pack resources, make sure the Lairs pack makes its way to your gaming table!

I presume that this product should say preorder Feb 2010 instead of Feb 2009? :)

Gah. Yes. Will fix on Monday.

I've updated the image and description to match the finished product.

I've added samples of all of the tiles.


This looks really cool. I might actually buy this one. Not only for villians who need lairs but also for PCs to hang their hats. I really like the one that looks like a little house.


This pack has a LOT of nice little details. The Ruined Temple has fallen statues and rubble and I enjoyed creating the spiked walls in the Villain Secret Lair...fun stuff.


Ok...a number of the map packs I don't see a whole lot of use for, but this one I can see dropping in for quick and easy side trek adventures on the cuff very easily.

Great idea, and excellent implementation.


Forgive my ignorance, but I assume these are 1-sided? And if so what is on the other sides? A grid? Blank gray?

They're blank (white) on the back.

They are single-sided, with plain white paper on the back side, and a nice glossy, coated tile illustration on the front. For what it's worth, though, these are easy to convert to double-sided tiles:

Buy some cardstock printer paper and some Elmer's Craft Bond spray adhesive, along with some optional wax paper, and an optional paper cutter.

Use the adhesive to first glue two sheets of the cardstock together, using a light coating of adhesive (one quick pass with the spray should work), and allow to dry for a few minutes.

Trim the double-thick cardstock to the size of appropriate Map Packs tiles. (A swingline paper cutter will make this job much easier.) Typically, 5"x8", or 8"x10".

Select two tiles you do not expect to use at the same time, and then use the spray adhesive to carefully glue one tile to each side of the double-thick cardstock using a light coating of adhesive.

Press the assembly between a stack of hardback RPG books overnight. (You can place the tile assembly between two sheets of wax paper before pressing to ensure that adhesive oozing from the edges of the assembly does not stick to your RPG books.)

The result will be a very sturdy double-sided tile of roughly the same thickness as Wizards of the Coasts' Dungeon Tiles and monster tokens.

TIP: Cardstock printer paper is usually 8.5"x11", and can be used to mount up to two 5"x8" Map Pack tiles on each side, making this great for single tiles, and for multi-part Map Pack maps that use two tiles. (I generally prefer to leave the larger maps single-sided, taped together with paper masking tape, so that they can easily be folded for storage, though I imagine that multiple sheets of cardstock can be joined side-by-side in such a way as to make large double-sided maps possible, or mounted as separate sections.)

I've assembled a number of double-sided tiles in this way, and typically I'll put natural/outdoor cards on one side, and man-made/indoor cards on the other side (for example, I put caverns on one side and sewers on the other.) I can assemble a couple dozen a night while watching television. These double-sided assemblies work extremely well alongside WotC Dungeon Tiles since they are about the same thickness, and having such different areas mounted on either side of the tiles makes it unlikely that I'll have scenes on both sides of the tile that I wish I could use at exactly the same time.
