Star Map

DramaScape Battlemaps Volume 01

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

The Card version contains eighteen, double-sided card tiles. Each over-sized tile is 8”x10” and printed on sturdy 12 point card stock. The UV coating on the tiles keeps them spill resistant, lets you peel transparent tape on and off them without damaging the tile, and allows you to mark the tiles with dry wipe markers then wipe them clean. As you can see in the images below, the card version has the hex grid overlay, it has the plain map on one side and a new Red Star Field on the other side. We recommend getting the Zip File combo as well (or at least download the PDF Preview) so you can see how the tiles all lay out. The full layout map is not included with the printed card pages to reduce their cost to you.

This product includes three 48 x 30 inch starmaps with a hex overlay, each hex is approx 1,2inches in size. The first starmap has been left blank of foreground objects. The brilliant background includes multiple stars and colorful nebulas. The second starmap includes a massive planet on the right side of the map. A huge continent can be seen on the light side of the planet with a land corridor leading away towards the dark side of the planet. The third starmap has a large space station on the left side of the map.


These star maps can be used in a variety of space combat miniatures simulations everything from space ships to armored mechanized suits. The first is an easy, empty star map, perfect for learning the game. Making the first starmap more difficult is rather easy. You can make the nebulas places to hide for example, or perhaps ships malfunction and lose some important systems in the nebulas. The second starmap is perfect for a planetary defense battle. You have an invading armada to the left and planetary defenders to the right including laser attack satellites in orbit and possibly missile silo land defenses on the planet’s surface. The third starmap is excellent for a space station defense battle. Have the attacker’s fleet enter from the right. The defender’s fleet orbits the space station. The space station likely has defenses of its own to account for as well such as missile defenses or laser cannons.

Another suggestion is an extremely large starmap. You could place the space station on the left, the plain starmap in the middle, and the planet on the right. In this scenario, you can have the first fleet begin at the space station and the second one at the planet. Perhaps even a third force in the middle map for a truly epic large-scale space battle.
The first star map could also be used as a star chart for a multitude of science fiction space role playing games.

The following review was originally posted at Roleplayers Chronicle and can be read in its entirety at http://roleplayerschronicle.com/?p=26494. Do not be fooled by the cover, Star Map is not just a great looking tabletop for your outer-space miniature [...]

The Star Map has easy to understand and easy to follow instructions. The maps are gorgeous! The plain map is my favorite. It is simply beautiful. The map with the planet is nice but the planet lacks depth. I feel the same way for the map with the [...]

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.
