Ptolus Deluxe City Map
by James S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/12/2013 02:17:37
These maps are amazing. A lot of detail and work went into them and not only are they clear but also colorful. If you get nothing else of this set, get the map. It's the best part of the city.

2e Adventure Tiles: Dungeon Core Set
by Walter J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/19/2013 15:50:42
This is a deliberately vanilla core set not a detail one, so the rating is base on how good this set does its job not whether it could be "prettier." This set does a good job of representing the basic dungeon tiles. Corridors: straight, 90 degree turn, T-intersection, 4-way intersection, stairs straight, stairs 90 degree turn and several dead ends into small rooms. Rooms: corners, sides, with entrance and non-entrance versions; middle sections and L-wing connectors. Everything you need to build a basic dungeon and all worth 5 stars so far for this type of set.

So why take off a star for this set? There are no doors. Not one. This set has to be viewed as a replacement to the old E-Adventure Tiles Dungeons Volume 1 (SKG105e) which had a door and non-door version of every room entry and had doors on some of the passage intersections as well. Honestly, there were probably too many door tiles in the original set - but to go from lots to none takes off a lot of this set's utility.

I don't think this set needs a lot of doors/non-door variant tiles like were in the original set, but I would like to see a page added to the set that just had doors you could cut out and place on the other tiles: a varity of 5' x 10' sections with a 5 foot wide door, a pair of 5 foot wide doors, a single 10 foot wide door and so on. It would be nice if larger double doors could be included that were like 5' x 15' and 5' x 20'.

Ptolus Bonus Map Pack
by Marc P. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/27/2013 07:53:41
Free. Hard to argue with that price tag, even if you don't play the game in question. Free is what led me to pick this up with the thought that maybe I would get some measure of use commensurate to the cost out of these maps. I was right, and then some.

The Ptolus Bonus Map Pack is basically a reprint of maps from other sources as stated on the product's cover page. The book contains two versions of each, one with areas labeled and some degree of notation, and a second with nearly all that removed. In some instances taking "Dining Room" off the map isn't going to matter when the map is clearly a home and that room is clearly meant for dining in, but the majority of notations are numerical call outs referencing some features list that was part of the original product the map came from. In either case these maps a beautiful, full color affairs with a clearly marked scale and compass. The "blank" versions could be of immediate use to any GM in need of a quick layout for anything from a home, to a city, to a series of sunken caverns. The prelabeled versions might be useful for a GM looking to detail the location on his own for a more pre-meditated use.

Rating: 100% - Regardless of you needs this is an outstanding "buy" for GMs. You can't beat the price of Free, but I have certainly seen lower quality or less useful items at the same price point and higher. If you need some cheap maps for a fantasy game this would be a good pick up.

Ptolus Deluxe City Map
by Julian J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/22/2013 21:08:03
The good:
I printed the 66 pages, on heavy weight paper.
The alignment is 11 pages horizontal, by 6 pages vertical.

The final product is extremely nice to view.
It is 82.5 inches in width (1.5" under seven feet across) and a little over five feet in height.



The bad:
If you don't want to tape/glue it, to a wall in your gaming room, this is a bit of a project.

I elected to use 'Backboard', and picked up two 4FT x 8FT pieces, then cut one of them into two sections 2.5FT x 8 FT and 1.5FT x 8FT.
Then used very liberal quantities of (school) white glue to overlap the 2.5 FT piece across the 4FT x 8FT and 1.5FT x 8FT pieces.
Then applied weight to the backboard and covered it with a tarp (did it in my driveway).

I opted to reinforce the glue (which held very well, after a week of ugly rain and cooler temperatures) with 16x 3/4" screws.

The 66 pages also needed to be cut.
There was close to an inch wide border around each page.
Staples, in the photo center, had a cutting machine... but the cuts aren't exactly perfect on every piece as you kind of learn to use the cutter as you go.
The pieces of the map are close to square/flush with each other, but it is not absolutely perfect.
It would have been nicer if they had come without the border around each piece.

I glued the pieces onto my assembled backboard.
And used a tape gun to go over the 'seams' to ensure the edges were all 'down' along the backboard.



Overall:
Ptolus absolutely rocks as a setting.
Having this fabulous visual aid, is great.

If you've not tried the Ptolus setting, do yourself a favor and do so.

If you running Ptolus, this set of maps is a phenomenal aid to your game.
It is easily the best prop our group has ever had.

2e Adventure Tiles: Labyrinth Core Set
by Chris H. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 03/14/2013 15:23:24
The 76 (!) 6" square tiles in this set offer you a myriad of straight, diagonal, and curving corridors and small (up to 3 x 4) rooms with which you can create a wide variety of maze-like dungeon layouts. Although it’s part of the new 2e Adventure Tiles series, this set gives you the ability to create more “old school” dungeon layouts than any previous SkeletonKey product. Fiddling with these tiles takes me back to fiddling around with TSR’s old dungeon geomorphs. Excellent art, creative layouts, and a generous selection combine to make this a fantastic printable tiles product. If you’re already heavily invested in the older style of SKG dungeon tiles, don’t fret; three of the tiles in this set help you connect the new 2e-style tiles (with stone walls) into your old-style tiles (with black walls).

2e Adventure Tiles: Labyrinth Core Set
by Billiam B. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 10/16/2012 13:01:10
I really like the art and ingenuity of Skeleton Key's 2E Adventure Tiles Labyrinth Core Set.  You get a whopping 73 small square tiles.  There are two main types of exit - and a mixture of curved walls with straights.  The light grey browns will give you a maze reminiscent of dusty classical settings or from the films like Labyrinth or Barbarella, whilst still fitting within grey castle environments.

As with many geomorphic designs, some referees may not like the fact that players can see beyond the walls to an inaccessible part of a tile, but I'm sure that a creative DM can find an explanation to allow for this meta-game awareness - perhaps just a sense that there's a hollow chamber or corridor beyond the wall - all the party need to do is go around the next corner to get there... - which is pretty much what mazes are about.  Certainly, the visual impact and compressed nature of the tiles mean that a maze will feel less laborourious than elongated zig zagging corridors.  It might be a bit of a struggle to run 4E D&D encounters in such small areas, but many other FRP rules should be okay.

Good looking, professional and inventive.

Warscapes: Star Base Trench-Run
by Jay A. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/29/2012 10:21:08
Great artwork. The tiling neatly ties together all of the various blocks in a way that's clever and convincing. Sadly, as presented the file is a bit hard to work with. You would need to print out individual pages and, I assume, tape them together to get a workable map. It would have been nice if it had been offered in a format that was more conducive to printing out larger maps in different formats. Luckily it doesn't require a lot of technical savvy to get around this issue. I'll soon have an awesome 4'x8' trench run for my Star Wars: X-Wing miniatures.

A good buy for $4. Simple, yet varied enough on large boards to avoid repetition of the greeble surface. Tiles connect seamlessly if you keep the shadows going in the same direction. While is looks a bit simplistic for what it is, this is to its benefit in my opinion. I too would like to see some laser turrets as a mini expansions for the play surface. I would also like to see some simple greeble structures to put into play as blocking obstacle terrain that serve no other purpose than board dressing.
