About

Game Stamps are a map-making tool for role-playing games, which can be used right at the table as you play.

The Trailblazer stamps depict iconic terrain such as mountains, forests, or seas.

Whether you're preparing for a campaign or mapping the adventure as it unfolds, the stamps let you create attractive paper and ink maps in a fraction of the time it would take to draw them.

All of the artwork is compatible with 1" hexes and grids, making the stamps ideal for open-world games.

Stamp each hex as the players explore it, or pass the stamps around the table and create a shared world. No matter how many people contribute to it or how many sessions it takes to explore it, the map will be detailed and consistent.

Game Stamps are made of natural gum rubber, deeply etched to produce a high quality image. The rubber is precisely trimmed to avoid artifacts, and cushioned with thick foam to distribute pressure evenly, improving the quality of the impression. The hardwood mounts have an hourglass profile, making them easy to grip.

Each set comes in a cushioned chipboard box and includes an archival-quality ink pad.

A wonderful addition to the toolkit of any game group with a penchant for exploration. Whether you're creating a world ahead of time or improvising a hexcrawl on the spot, Brendan Day's Game Stamps will help you create a handcrafted map with speed and clarity. ~ Jason Lutes, author of The Perilous Wilds and Berlin.

Game Stamps are a great idea executed well. They're a welcome addition to my gaming library. I can't wait to see more! ~ Tony Dowler, author of How to Host a Dungeon.

Whether we use high quality pens and papers, or just scribble on the nearest scrap of paper, map making is one of the many hobbies within a hobby, that are part of being a gamer. When it comes to maps for fantasy games, there is an artistic quality to homemade one of a kind maps, that cannot be equaled. Game Stamps really do have that handmade look and feel. ~ Griffith Morgan, Co-Director of Secrets of Blackmoor: The True History of Dungeons and Dragons.

The Trailblazer stamps depict the following terrain:

  • Mountains
  • Hills
  • Grassland
  • Swamp
  • Forest (Deciduous)
  • Forest (Conifer) 
  • Sea
  • Desert
  • Tower
  • Village
  • Castle or Walled City

If you back at the Wanderer or Explorer level, you will receive a starter set containing 6 or 9 stamps.

The Wanderer level lets you choose either the Deciduous or Conifer forest, whereas the Explorer level includes both of the forest designs. 

If you back at the Adventurer, Wayfinder, or Cartographer level, you will receive all of the designs.

The Wayfinder and Cartographer levels include 3 additional stamps, which depict individual trees.

  • 1/2" Tree (Deciduous)
  • 1/2" Tree (Conifer)
  • 1/2" Tree (Leafless)

You can use these smaller stamps to create mixed terrain such as forested hills, or to add variety to large sections of woodland.

All sets include a jet black archival-quality ink pad, but if you back at the Cartographer level, you will receive three additional ink pads in colors of your choice. I recommend Cobalt Blue and Vermillion Red, but other colors are available.

These are pretty unique.  I've seen a lot of digital map making tools, but nothing quite so simple and low tech.

Right! I draw my own maps up in the journal I use for running my homebrew game; these stamps will absolutely cut down on the time it takes me, while giving me some creative flexibility. 

 

If I want to denote really dense forest, I could use the forest stamp overlapping on certain regions, etc. I wish I didn't have to wait until October (yes, I know it'll delay :lol:)

      As I eagerly await the arrival of my Bones 4 order... A Kickstarter to put all your Reaper minis to use!!!
       
       
      It all started with wanting a good old-fashioned dungeon crawl, but in an easy to play board game that had flexibility in exploration and was challenging. I had a multitude of minis, so did not need to spend extra money on the available board games that included all of those minis and pieces to the point of the game costing hundreds of dollars and bloated rules to where picking up a casual game with friends was nearly impossible. Why was there not a role-playing board game with easy to understand rules, super quick to set up and unlimited flexibility to make my own campaigns, use my own minis and even print the material, board, terrain and furniture as needed?
      Welcome to Cavern Quest Warriors – the RPG board game where you choose one of six characters with unique abilities on a quest in search of adventure and treasure. Choose a Warrior/Fighter, Barbarian/Berserker, Cleric/Monk, Rogue/Thief, Wizard/Magic-User or an Archer/Ranger. All games pieces are designed to be printed on either paper or simple card stock (e.g. 110 lb. index) – just print what you need along with the basic rules, special cards and campaign module that includes the floor plan, creature stat panel, individual room/floor tiles and use your own minis to embark on a quest with your friends. The Cavern Master will guide the play for maximum challenge and enjoyment for the characters along with movement and battle for all creatures, keeping it enjoyable for everyone. Each campaign module gives the Cavern Master complete instructions on how to guide the players through each room and what creatures and events they will encounter. While this concept is not entirely new, the method and delivery concept are. By providing all documents electronically, you save money by printing yourself - no need to spend hundreds of dollars to get what ends up being an enormous board game.
       
      The basic rules are quick and easy to learn, yet always challenging and allow for character expansion in all abilities through experience gained. The magic system is unique to ensure a varied and changing set of magic skills as wizards progress. New players can jump in at any time and at any level, with our set skill system for characters – no need to start at the bottom!
       
      KS pledges start at $12. Check out our Kickstarter live now: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mdsw/cavern-quest-warriors

      OK, Heroes Super Chibi Villains is now live! You can head over to Kickstarter via this link to check it out.
       
      http://tinyurl.com/y22q93kj
       
      This Kickstarter is very special to us. It’s the first time we will be focusing on the evil side of the Super Chibi universe and it’s the first time that 95% of the character was designed and drawn by Brian “Natakue” Saunders himself.
      We are also doing something different this time around to test interest. We have included a digital pledge this time around for the .stl files of the minis. This is for those of you out there who want to print your own minis. We know 3d printing Is an ever-growing market and well, we want to see if Super Chibi can be one of the items people want to print on their personal printers. You can also print these files from any company or retailer who provides printings services. Just to name a few there is Impact Miniatures, Shapeways and much more. Right now this is a Kickstarter only deal but if there is interest we will look into making this a standard pledge in all the upcoming Kickstarters and possibility adding this option to our online store.
       
      So with that said we want to say thank you for supporting us and we will see you at the end of the Kickstarter.
