Yet another great product from Jonathan Roberts! The map sections are clear and easy to understand. Both a color and greyscale map are included. The colors and map detail conveys a frigid environment, which I imagine would be perfect for a party defending a keep against an onslaught of Frost Giants; or perhaps the party exploring a dwarven keep that has been taken over by goblins and winter wargs!

My only continued gripe is the inability to turn the map grids off. As a MapTools GM, I can appreciate "pre-gridded" maps, but there is nothing like appreciating a beautifuly drawn map without grids. I guess it's an art "thing" of mine.

[4 of 5 Stars!]

I want to thank David B. Semmes for his review, I would like to point out there is a map with no grids in the zip file. Steve Russell Rite Publishing
Thanks for the review! I'd also like to add to Steve's comment. The pack contains a map with no grid, and the included maptool file uses that map with no grid. I totally agree that inside a virtual tabletop, you don't need a grid over the artwork cluttering up the map. Also, this way you can set the scale of the grid yourself if you'd prefer this to be a Frost giant fortification, or a land of icy pygmies!
