I like this set of maps!

Encompass included both a color set and a black and white set. Great job!
The only complaint would be that the grid lines are to thick. Dotted lines on the b/w map would have been better.

This has been one of my better RPG purchases... The Octagon is an incredibly beautiful castle, rich in design and playability. I waited for the right moment to place this before my trusty little band of adventurers and they were awed and immediately anxious to check out the new surroundings. The coloring used is impressive and also makes for a less expensive printout, yet still provides some breath-taking views. Also, the detailed description provided some great groundwork, and was flexible enough to fit well into our current table-top adventure. My thanks goes to Encompass for creating such a fine product and I look forward to their future releases.

I had my initial doubts, but I must say that I am impressed with Encompass who almost daily made changes to address the feedback provided by myself and others who purchased their products. As this product is currently offered, it is a very nice piece of work. The addition of 8x10 tiles with a white background provides an ink-saving option most companies do not . . . unless you want to print out black and white battle maps. The building itself is well drawn and would provide an adventuring party a very cool place to hang out - or a place to sneak in and take out the bad guys. No matter where your imagination takes you, this is a well-done product and well worth the investment. The only negative I can find is I feel all the 8x10 files really should be offered with and without the white background - not just for the first floor. I sure hope Encompass creates some themed dungeons to delve through. I haven't purchased the Mad Wizard's Laboratory yet but will likely do so in the near future.

Art & design are good, plothooks are available, inhabitants are nicely described.

As answer to the negative feedback from other reviewers Encompass has also within 24h released additional ink-saving battlemaps for each of their products, so this issue seems to be gone.

Reasons for not giving 5 stars are the missing basement and the fact that to me the wizard theme was too similar to Encompass' other product "Mad Wizards Tower". Also The Octagon has only 4 inhabitants (5 with familiar) which gives me a feeling of "emptiness" - to me a lost opportunity for providing more plothooks and room for intrigue as it was for example done in "Tendril's Oak Inn".
