Enemy at the gates!

Whether your party is besieging a tyrannical warlord’s stronghold or attempting to sneak into a forbidden city, no Game Master wants to spend time drawing every watchtower on the fortress walls. Fortunately, with Paizo’s latest Pathfinder Flip-Mat, you don’t have to! This line of gaming maps provides ready-to-use and detailed fantasy set pieces for the busy Game Master. Whether you need to scale the walls or sneak past archers in the towers, this double-sided combat map is the perfect setting for storming the gates or defending the city!

Don’t waste your time sketching when you could be playing. With Pathfinder Flip-Mat: City Gates, you’ll be ready next time your players try to breach a city’s defenses!

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, Pathfinder 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?

One great side and one ok side.

****( )

The side with the "underground/mountain stronghold" city is really useful for an attack/siege scenario.
We used it as a drow outpost, but it could also be a dwarven sky citadel, Janderhoff or a Duergar forge city.

Side B isn´t as useful. The Gatehouse has to be reversed 90 degrees, because the stairs are facing in the direction of potential invaders is illogical from a siege point of view.
Also the city part is too small/river part too big.

UGLY: The huge statue behind the (unseen) gate leaves not enough space to let a horse wagon inside.

Buy it for the side with the stone buildings.

Cool. What would be even better would be if this map could dove-tail with one of the existing city maps so we can start laying out large sections of a city.

Any idea what's going to be on the other side?

From the description:

"With a distinct city gate and wall battlements on each side, this durable accessory..."

You know what I would really like to see now would be the other maps come out with wall sections! Some more walls, even a wall section with outer stairs leading to the top, a corner wall section. That way you could with enough create your on walled keep!

Lol I was just talking about city gates and customs checks on another board. Guess I'm going to have to pick this up now.

Not to bad, seems to be near a river. I hope to other side is dry land. Like I mentioned before I hope that the Map Packs can continue this with wall sections!

Or it could be a moat.

Times like these I miss my maps subscription sooo much.... just can't really set aside the money.... maybe... *thinks about things awhile*

(And half the maps I got when I did subscribe were stolen.... gah.)

We just need a bunch of maps that connect with this, that way we can play kneeling on the mats as our characters walk around the fort/city.

I just want to say that, if my eyes don't deceive me here, THANK YOU for making the main thoroughfares non-diagonal. (Still having flashbacks to the diagonal bridge in Battlefield I think it was.)

I would love if the digital version came with digital image files as well for us who plays online or uses a projection unit.

The digital version is a PDF file, and depending on your PDF reader, you can extract the images for personal use only in your preferred VTT.

My question is: does this match with map packs like rooftops or marketplace?


hello. it seems i am over 2 years late to this conversation but i just got my map. i love it!

however, it look like the gate is placed backwards. like, if you rotate it 180degrees it would be a much more potent defense.

look at the inner most staircase. if attackers are rushing over the wood bridge and bursting through the gate, those stairs are facing the gate and given easy access to the upper tiers. those same stairs are as far as possible away from any reserve defenders coming from the city.
