I love maps. If I am honest, sometimes the only reason I pitch a Pathfinder game to my group is simply so I have an excuse to create a map.
Like many gamers, I remember TSR’s blue-ink maps. It is an eye-catching design and immediately brings back memories of “old-school” modules. However, while there are many tutorials explaining how to re-capture the look, they are time-consuming and they arent always easy to follow.
Thankfully, PBE Games have released their Dungeons in Blue line. These are affordable Zip folders with geomorphic tiles that can be combined together easilly to make maps of any size. The below example was created in about 10 minutes sticking together random tiles in GIMP:
I’ve kept the resolution low to protect PBE Games’ copyright but as you can see, very quickly I have a very large dungeon that should occupy my players for a few games.
