Plan your next getaway!

Sometimes the best safe house is the one you carry with you! From a spell-erected magnificent mansion to the cloudy refuge of a rope trick, from the inside of a genie’s bottle to a dimensional bolt-hole made of the raw stuff of elements, the prepared adventurer has many possible refuges and escapes. But getting there doesn’t necessarily mean escaping from battles with enemies! Paizo Publishing brings a variety of extradimensional spaces to life in this latest GameMastery Map Pack! This line of gaming products provides simple and elegant tools for the busy Game Master. Inside, you’ll find 18 beautiful 5"x 8" map tiles that can be combined to form eight of the most commonly encountered extradimensional spaces, including:

  • Rope Trick
  • Magnificent Mansion
  • Genie Bottle
  • Dimensional Prison
  • Air Node
  • Earth Node
  • Fire Node
  • Water Node

Game Masters shouldn’t waste their time drawing a rope trick every time the player characters run away from their enemies. With GameMastery Map Pack: Extradimensional Spaces, you’ll always be ready for a speedy escape or extra-planar ambush!

Cartography by Corey Macourek

For use with all tabletop roleplaying and miniatures games and usable by experienced GMs and novices alike, this product fits perfectly into any Game Master’s arsenal.

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.

Interesting idea, great artwork, but...

***( )( )

The artwork is beautiful and the idea is interesting, but there's not a lot that I can do with these. I'm glad I could see what I was getting before I bought these thanks to the preview images on this site: I wasn't disappointed with what I got.

I prefer modular multi-purpose cards that can be linked in a variety of ways, and which have walls and other obstacles that make them interesting for exploration or combat. These cards can be linked to larger dungeons through teleporters and dimensional gates, the elemental cards can probably double as caves in a cavern map, and the mansion would work for pretty much any sort of house, inn, guild, hideout, or front for a dungeon entrance (though it seems like one of the bedrooms should have been a kitchen.)

Unfortunately, almost all are empty single-room areas without much complicated going on for surprise encounters or cover in a fight, with the exception of the mansion, with its various rooms and furniture.

Sadly, I can't really imagine finding much use for the flat empty rope trick (which could have easily been sketched onto plain graph paper or onto the plain grid on the flip-side of a Flip Mat), or the visually stunning genie bottle; they'll get set aside with other stuff I won't be using.


The Next Dimension!

*****

I can't say enough good things about this set. I love cross-dimensional stuff and this set has some great concepts and art. I'm really hoping for Extradimensional Spaces II sometime!


Great Purchase

*****

Fortunately, you can see the maps in the product previews above. Thanks, Paizo, for making it easy to see what we are buying.

The good: The large map proved to be perfect to map an area of elemental evil in my current 4E campaign and for that alone I give it five stars.

The bad: I love the elemental nodes but they really need to be larger. I also would have liked the water node to contain, um, some water.

Overall, very useful to me and this pack will definitely be seeing some use.


Extradimensional Utility!

*****

I'm one of those kind of people that knows just enough about art, graphic design and gaming to be dangerous enough to anyone. And I'm really impressed with the Extra-Dimensional Spaces.

One thing I really like is the way that the maps are in areas where I could see it being used commonly for situations or perhaps in such a way that would be not thought of before, like chasing after someone who uses the rope trick to get away. I am really impressed with the genie bottle and the magnificent mansion, which I believe will find a lot of use in play.

My only quibble is that the maps aren't two-sided, one with and one without the square marks to indicate spacing. I also think to some extent, extra-dimensional space plays different, so I really think having a version without the square marks would be good.

I laughed heartily when I heard about this product, but it's a great idea. It never occurred to me to have a battle in a rope trick's space! (Here's hoping the map is more interesting than a formless gray area with some wisps of clouds in the corners and a rope in the middle.)

Aw, crap. Did my concept sketch get out? Hehehe, kidding. This come after the next Map pack for me.

Hi, Corey, If possible, I actually have a request here.

I once designed an adventure with a battle in an extradimensional space which, with the introduction of the party, had suddenly exceeded its weight limit, and which started collapsing during the fight.

If you could rig one of the tile sets so that the space could get tighter each round -say, as the tiles overlapped more and more the picture looked good for as long as possible- that would be outstandingly cool.


The meeting to concept this was a good one. There are some good surprises in store for this Map Pack. Definitely a unique set of tiles for this one.

Most people are buying two or three of these, so you can have a Genie Bottle Interior inside of a Genie Bottle Interior, inside of a pocket dimension.

etc..

Plus, you can stack them and move in three dimensions, while in extra-dimensions.


Sorry, Chris. The spec list from the editors is pretty stiff when we have our initial meeting for these sets top review the content needs. I CAN say that I am delivering in the final art for this set this evening and it is one of my favorites from the entire line. I am, in fact going to be making prints from some of the tiles from this set. Good stuff. I'm looking forward to this release.

Hehe. It sure does...and it looks pretty darned cool. i will be posting a VERY small sample of one of the dimensions on my blog this afternoon.

I look forward to this map pack, as I can recall a few times where some smack should've been getting thrown down in certain extradimensional spaces. The genie bottle one could come in handy for Legacy of Fire.

Now all we need is a spell or two to provide egress into said bottle. Hubba hubba ...

How about a tile featuring a party, who haven't read the Rope Trick spell duration, getting dumped out on their heads?

LOL

You mean "entry to said bottle"...egress is the other way.

Thematically gaseous form should do the trick, assuming the bottle is open.

Egress, ingress, access ... open sez me ^_^

That's what happens when one posts on less-than-optimum brain capacity.

I've added an image of the finished cover. Previews of tiles will be coming in the not-to-distant future, I should think....

Thanks. For the first time, I will be soon be offering art prints of this product without their taglines. Email me if you are interested and I will replay back when the prints become available.


Any word on this products arrival?

Currently have a shipment holding for this item alone and am curious what the ETA might be.

(Not complaining. I choose to have one shipment for the sake of saving money.)

As always... thank you kindly!

Suggestion: Please make JPEGs of the maps, like those you have above, available to us map subscribers in our downloads.

Projectors are a GMs best friend and having ready images of your fine maps to project would delight me to an extent that most would find disconcerting.

If anyone has picked this up, I'd be very curious to know if an Instant Fortress tile was included. Thanks!

The complete list of locations, with sample images, is part of the product's description.


I wish this came out in a pdf format.


I was also wondering if this product would also be available in a download format (a .pdf file, image files, etc...).

It would be even better if it were available to purchasers of the print version at a reduced (or free) cost regardless of who they purchased the item through.

Ordered it for Black Friday. Was planning to get it anyway, but that was too good to pass up.

Several of us 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.

I believe that too. How about PDFs only for subscribers? It's pain to scan and combine these (even more so with flip-mats...) to use in MapTool. I know it's selfish but we use these 95% in digital form anyway...

So Vic, is this also totally unthinkable?

I think that offering them as PDFs to anyone opens up a big can of worms.

Here's just one: Subscribers to our Pathfinder lines get PDFs of only the products they receive as subscribers. Assuming that policy held for GameMastery maps, that means there would be no way to get PDFs of older products. And if that policy didn't hold—say we let subscribers buy PDFs of *any* maps—what's to keep people from subscribing, buying all the PDFs, and canceling their subs, repeating every few months to ensure that the get all the PDFs and as few of the print copies as possible? And before anyone suggests some plan that limits the number of PDFs you can buy by tying it to the number of print copies you've received as a subscriber, while that may be clever and perhaps even fair, it's also a horror to explain and a pain to code for.

Ultimately, I think any plan that involves limiting whom we sell PDFs to will cause more customer frustration than it solves.

That's a really good point. I could see this done only by giving PDFs only to subscribers and only when new product is released. But I see your point. <<warms up scanner again...>>

What are elemental nodes?


I was wondering what "elemental nodes" are myself. They look pretty cool though!
