Another Ravensburg Map
I've been map-obsessed lately, working and reworking Ravensburg trying to get something I really like. This is my latest. I traded out the original neighborhoods for streets instead. Making streets an entire hex wide helps keep the labeling a bit less clutt...

What More or Less Happened in Tonight's Game
After a month without playing due to scheduling conflicts, we got together to play in Tim's Komor Forest game using BX Essentials . At one point it kind of went like this: Well, maybe not that bad. But close. My character, Brimstone, gets hit by an ochre je...

Falcon's Gate Map: Color Version
Color version of yesterday's map. Super-easy to do with the layers feature in Hex Kit. Just open the B&W version, save with a new name, and swap things out. I should add that I still use a photo editing program for my labeling. Once I have all the terrain t...

Falcon's Gate Map
Another map, this time for the Falcon's Gate idea I came up with some time ago. This time in black and white using the Hex Kit "Classic" tiles. I have to say, I'm a big fan of Hex Kit because of the very shallow learning curve, variety of tiles, and ease of...

New City of Ravensburg Map
Another reworking/polishing/detailing, again with Hex Kit. I originally tried to put locations in with name labels, but I couldn't seem to do it without making the map look cluttered with oversized labels, or without making the label text so small that it b...

Refining Ravensburg Maps
Taking some time over Thanksgiving break to refine my Ravensburg maps. The first one is a world map that I've tweaked from a previous draft : I've basically streamlined and changed some things that have not yet impacted any part of the campaigns I've run, s...

Birthday Loot
Hit the big 5-0 today. My wife got me a three-volume French-language edition of all Robert E. Howard's Conan stories. Oliver (our cat) got me a tribble.

Mucking About with Layers in Hex Kit
Trying the same map with different solid background layers, and using only "transparent" geography and site tiles, just to see what I can do with the system. Instead of using river tiles, I made a river using "coast" tiles for a large-scale map. This would ...

Another Hex Kit Map and a Bit of Zazzle
Another experiment with Hex Kit . I paid closer attention this time to the ends of the road and river tiles, and got them to line up a bit more nicely. I also just got a new binder with a custom spine from Zazzle . They had a font that passes for a reasonab...
