Loke Battle Mat's The Dungeon

Recommended Posts

I've heard good things on this board about Loke's previous battle mats campaign, and I like the art a little better on this one. This is their fifth KS.

 

It's a set of *two* 30-page books that you can align as you wish, for about under $40, including shipping, to USA. Each page is wipe-clean.

 

"Each Book is 1-foot square (12” by 12”), so a one page RPG mat is 1’x1’ (you can use individual pages thanks to the 360° spine which allows the book to fold in half). Open the Book out to a 2 page spread and you have a 2’x1’ playing area (the 360° spine allows the book to lay dead flat). Open two books and they sit flush next to each other (you can even adjust the heights to match again thanks to the 360° spine) and you have a 2’x2’ playing area. Or you can form a 4’x1’. Or you can line them up any way you like! The flexibility of this system is unparalleled!

 

"The Dungeon is a standalone set, it is also fully compatible with our existing books so you can use them together.

 

"Yes the pages in each book are different. For the more themed rooms we are doing 4 linked pages (2 per book) of each. Obviously everything lines up with everything anyway so you can transition through however you want but we want to make sure for example that you can get a full spread from "the library". Hope this helps!

Tempting.... Even if I don't do this kind of thing, it's still tempting ^_^;;;;

Backed the first one, quality is nice and we're using the books regularly.

This one seems less useful to me, as it's "just" dungeons, not all kinds of situation. Of the pre-printed maps I have, I use dungeon maps the least. Somehow I always end up drawing them up myself, because the rooms don't line up with the ones in my head.

That's definitely true. I figure these maps can also be used for Song of Gold and Darkness or other dungeoncrawl boardgames and skirmish games.

 

The above pages look good for a map of a section of town. Throw down all that Mantic Terrain crate furnishings!

 

Also, I've seen DM's use 2D game tiles with battle maps to modify them!

I literally just finished backing a campaign for a map book, though I like variety and am tempted to back this one since they're fun successful KS's per your original post. I'll definitely scope this one out.

 

*I backed :lol:

I added on the Giant Book of maps to go with it. Between these two books, and the other book I've ordered I should be set!! I can absolutely use some of the Dirt Cheap Dungeon tiles, and my Frontline Games Stones tiles to spruce it all up and make some fun battles.

More unlocks and a new Little Book of Dungeons!

 

The Little Book is 6" on a side. When folded out, it measures 12", so fits next to the 12" Dungeon Tile. It can be purchased as an add-on.

 

It's also *free* :wow: with the new Double Dungeon pledge. Twice the price as the Dungeon pledge, but you get the Little Book and *no* increase in shipping!

 

"Now lets talk about the Little Book of Battle Mats - Dungeon Edition. This is a BRAND NEW book, fully laminated, of corridors, dead end rooms, bridges and entrances to compliment the Dungeon. This will be the same style as our existing library - laminated with 360° spine - and will give you even more options for creating your own dungeon! The size will be approx 6"x6". So suddenly that doorway leads to an intriguing chamber!

 

"The Little Book of Battle Mats - Dungeon Edition - will have an estimated RRP of £9.99.

 

"More details on the Little Book will follow this week including sample designs, page numbers and some mock up shots of how it will look in action, I am pleased to confirm the postage rates we have listed will not increase at all regardless of pledge level or add ons. We will be covering the additional shipping costs.

Back of the Little Book of Battle Mats.

 

All of their books (eg. Dungeon, Big, Giant) except Little have a 12" side, so integrate with each other. Little has a 6" spiral spine, so can be 12" as a double-page spread.

 

"The Little Book of Battle Mats - Dungeon Edition - is a 40 page 6"x6" wire bound, fully laminated book of battle maps. It will be available as an add on for £9 in the Backerkit phase of this Kickstarter, and we have included it in our new Double Dungeon pledge.

I feel like this campaign could be growing so much larger if the creator had more maps to add as stretch goals. The hard cover, slip case and more flat tokens are good, I guess. I guess they’re out of ideas.

Backers jumped when they announced the hard cover, though (May 4th). Dunno if this was intentional. Ask in the comments?

      About
      RM Printable Terrain is proud to present Stormguard Undone, the next chapter in our Stormguard Story for terrain STL's.
      Through decades of war and conflict, the world was divided into 3 lands. Quivira the city of light, the one beacon of hope in the world, the perfect city. Biringan the land of Darkness, necromancers leaning towards the dark arts to gain their power, and Uffmoor woods. Uffmoor woods was where people fleeing the great war went to go into hiding, Where druids looked to healing the world and being one with Nature. 
      Now is your time, a lull in the conflict after the destruction of Stormguard, you need to venture beyond the walls of a city, as it offers you little safety now… Explore a world torn asunder by a thirst for power, a hubris that was unmatched.
      Stormguard Undone: is a support-free 28mm scenery collection,(of printable files for a 3D printer) designed for wargames, role playing games, and skirmish games that will feature many different pieces of scatter terrain for gaming. Each of the pledge levels will be delivered as STL files for you to print on your home 3D Printer. All of the files were designed to fit 3D printers with a bed size of 220mm x 220mm bed and print without supports! All of pieces of terrain were sculpted by the very talented Iain Lovecraft. All pieces of terrain were designed to work with a tabletop gaming scale of 28mm-32mm.
        PLEDGE THE SCRIBE: The scribe includes no rewards, it's just a way to follow along with the progress of the campaign, and support our project. If you choose the Scribe, thank you for contributing!
        PLEDGE QUIVIRA BATTLE MAGE: The battle mage will include any core files, and any unlocked stretch goals with the key word QUIVIRA. This set is for creating the city of light. Pledge will be delivered as STL Files.
        PLEDGE BIRINGAN DARK NECROMANCER: The necromancer pledge level will include any core files, and any unlocked stretch goals with the key word BIRINGAN. This set is for creating the land of darkness, truly dark feeling terrain to add to any battlefield. Pledge will be delivered as STL Files.
      PLEDGE UFFMOOR DRUID: The druid pledge level will include any core files, and any unlocked files with the key word UFFMOOR. This set is for creating more natural terrain for your table, and structures that are built into nature, instead of destroying it. Pledge will be delivered as STL Files.
      PLEDGE UNDONE ARCHMAGE: A master of the magical arts, this pledge level will include all core files, and all unlocked files. This set is for anyone looking to create multiple themed battlegrounds through 3D printing.
        But what if I don't have a 3D printer? RM Printable Terrain will be offering printed terrain after the close of the kickstarter, stay tuned for more details.
        Special Thanks: A very special thanks to Iain Lovecraft for all his hard work on designing a ton of great Support Free STL files for printing next level gaming terrain.
      Risks and challenges
      DIGITAL MEDIA:
      All of the files will be broken down into smaller files, so that you can choose how you want to print them, but it's up to you to get the most out of your 3D printer for the files. All of the files are going to be supplied in STL format.
      If you would like to edit the files, and alter the files you are welcome to, but you are not welcome to share/re-sell these files without permission from me (so please just ask first). I also can't guarantee that modified files will continue to work properly.
      The Images shown on the campaign page are just for visualization and although they may come very close, they may not be an exact representation of the final design or printed model. Make sure you look at the printed pictures of the terrain.
      I am going to reserve the right to alter any of the models shown, at any time, before delivery, with the intent of improving the design, or efficiency of production.
      There are no risks in the delivery of the files, after funds clear you will be sent a code that will reduce any items in your pledge level to zero in our online store. Stretch goals will be started after the kickstarter ends, and be delivered as quickly as possible.
      So please join us on this quest and support us so that we can continue to bring stunning terrain to your tabletop.

      Seems to be a good time for 3D printers (and a bad one for wallets).
