Excellent addition to the flip-mat pantheon, but there are errors.

4/5

I love these flip-mats that go into large urban establishments - especially if the establishment is something other than a tavern, and something that would be found in a city. This flip-mat is also audacious and unique in that it covers a three-story building on two sides. I can see myself using this quite frequently, and not just for a museum. It can easily be used for any fancy-schmancy location where the characters have to meet with a dignitary or wealthy NPC. There is also ample opportunities for collateral damage on this map.

However, as stated below, if you run the map as written, the stairs do not make sense. This is because the black lines denoting walls would keep the various staircases isolated from each other, so that you have several staircases that just hang in mid-air and go in random direction, But, looking at it closely, it seems to be a post-production error, as those black lines are not part of the artwork of the map. If you simply remove those black lines and just assume that the staircases connect together, then it makes sense, You would have a main grand split staircase form the first floor to the second floor for most patrons, and then a skinny, steep, and winding staircase for employees and servants over in the corner.


5 star map

Very nicely done. Can definitely see using this a few times over the years we'll be playing.


Massive Layout Error

1/5

The map is supposed to be 3 floors of the same building, but the different floors don't fit together. On the second floor there are two big staircases that probably are supposed to be connected to the platform on the ground floor, but in that case there would be a railing in the way.
The artist probably forgot his own architecture, because there is no hint of stairs on the side of the map with the ground floor.
Also usually the upper end of the staircases is highlighted - which would make the platform more sensible - but then the staircases would lead up to nothing which doesn't make sense either.

I don't really know what the gray areas are supposed to be, probably secret areas, but their setup is very random and silly.
Otherwise the museum looks quite nice, but it has a little bit of everything which makes it a strange museum, although that could help to use the map in different situations.

I liked the idea behind the map, but the execution is terrible.

Fixed your link. I agree, I think that's the way it's supposed to go. Way I'll use it. A grand stairway has to go from the 1st floor to the 2nd, not the 2nd to the 3rd.

Forgive me if this is explained already, or assumed, but I think the first floor sample map is upside down as posted (and labeled with the Pathfinder logo) here. If flipped 180`, the first floor short staircase (5'x20') and raised platform line up directly under the visible roof on the second floor map. I'd assume the double stairs "double back" over the first floor. So, to get from the first to the second floor, walk up the 5' flight of stairs, take a left or right, and another left or right and step up to the second floor. It would be nice if they were "drawn in" on the first floor, though.

Does that make sense? I tried to draw it here: http://imgur.com/eVCbGkC

Thanks. Sorry; got busy and haven't been on the boards in a while, but wanted to make sure I said "thank you."

FYI this doesn't fit the 0-2 season maps.

Thanks for the heads up! I'm running Voice in the Void this weekend, so I'm using map packs for the lower levels of Blakros. We'll save the flip mat for when the players get to the newer seasons.

Blakros lower level photo.

For anyone that's curious, I built the basement level from the crypt mausoleum for the entrance which leads to two dungeon rooms. For the scriptorium and storerooms, I used the city apothecary, the warehouse temple and the hidden library dungeon site.

Spoiler:

The final chamber was put together from Dungeon corridors for an entrance leading to cave chambers, another dungeon room and then the spider temple to cap it off.

Final chamber.

I think the players are going to enjoy their first visit to Blakros.


Finally, a building with restrooms! So many tavern, fort, castle, prison, and other building maps with no restrooms. It's nice to see they had the cartographer put them in this one.

+1 for the creation of a "bigger" flip-mat for the original layout, plus perhaps the basement area beneath. Recommend checking the PFS reports of Mists of Mwangi, Voice in the Void, and Penumbral Accords to see how frequently they would be used.

Is there a chance this might be reprinted?

I haven't heard anything about the Flip-Mat Classics line ending, so reprints in that line are always possible.

It's possible it could wind up in the Classics line eventually... but there appears to be just one copy available right now.
