City Blocks

DramaScape Brief Encounters Volume 05

Game Masters need quality maps for their miniatures. DramaScape™ is committed to bringing Game Masters the maps they need.

This product features a large-scale panoramic view of a modern city with four city blocks represented. The map features over 40 buildings.

 
This map can be used as a base city for a modern setting, the place where the Player Characters live, eat, work, and sleep when they are not on adventures which may be an excellent setting for downtime in modern-based or super hero games.

 
This dynamic map allows for larger scale adventures and scenarios than normal.


The first scenario is a chase scene, where either the Player Characters are being chased by Game Master Characters out to get them or vice versa. The Player Characters could also be tailing Game Master Characters who if they don’t notice the Player Characters first will lead them to an important meeting. For example, the city parking lot where a deal is going down in the middle of the night. The four city blocks have several hazards; other vehicles on the roads, the center traffic signal, and stop signs at the end of the main roads. These can cause complications in the chase, and even bring police into the chase for not following the traffic laws. There are also a couple of back alleys for cars to try to slip through and sneak around, one of them being a dead end.


The second scenario is a monster rampaging through the city. Maybe the Player Characters are a team of super heroes coming in to fight a gigantic, super villain created monster intent on destroying the city. The humongous creature sends cars flying, debris tumbling down from buildings, and wreaks havoc upon the city. The super heroes have to save as many people as they can and somehow defeat the ginormous monstrosity at the same time. Perhaps the Player Characters are the massive monsters and the Game Master is controlling police and military forces (or even superheroes or other huge monsters) intent on stopping them from annihilating the city.


The third scenario is a military assault scenario. This city holds an important objective for two different military armies, and they roll into it at one of the four roads leading into the city featuring an array of tanks and armored personal carriers. One of the army’s goals is to protect and defend the objective building, and the other army’s goals could be to either take over or destroy the objective building. The objective building could be a hospital actively treating soldiers, a TV station that is blasting out propaganda, a hotel where a VIP is staying, etc. The Player Characters could be an elite unit dropped onto one of the roof of the objective building by helicopter. The elite unit’s job may be to infiltrate the key building and then either extract or eliminate the VIP. Maybe it’s their job to secure and defend the building or use explosives to blow it up before escaping. Perhaps they are taking control of the highest rooftop in the city in order to lend sniper support to the battle below.

You can either print it out with our easy to print instructions or use in any VTT software.

This map product is a full-color, 40 x 30 inch, 4 City Blocks. The ZIP file includes VTT images for your online gaming needs.

I expected battlemap size and quality product. This was a complete waste for me. However the city slums product by the same group was more what I was looking for. [...]

This is actually a rather good product, but there are a couple glaring issues. While the textures are of decent quality, there are a couple places where they don't really work, and there are a couple places where there are glaring blue blocks that [...]

As a GM and miniatures gamer, there are certain things I look for. Many of these CITY BLOCKS offers. Some, it doesn't. It does layout a map that is, as the name implies, a large section of city with buildings, streets and sidewalks/ patios. This [...]

First of all, let me say that GMs need more products, like DramaScape's City Blocks! As a GM, I go through certain phases of gaming genres. Currently I am in my Modern/SciFi phase. As 99.9% of my gaming is done online these days, I use battlemaps for [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
