Dungeons in Blue - The Master List
by Jason T. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/14/2019 16:12:45

This review is for the Dungeons in Blue tiles in general, not just The Master List.

Simply put, they are very excellent for use in my game. Instead of a VTT I use them in conjunction with a laptop & projector and the quality is perfect for that. I assemble several tiles in GIMP and edit them as needed (add things here, remove things there, a dash of color to spice things up) and add a black layer over the top that functions as my fog of war. I simply erase bits of this layer as the party progresses through the dungeon and it works excellently. I really appreciate the GM tiles being separate as I put things like secret doors as their own layer in GIMP and leave them as not visible until the party discovers them; it works like a charm. While I do not yet own all of the tile sets (there are a lot!) I do own several dozen of them and plan on getting more. The range of options is great and I really dig the old school flavor as I am old enough to remember when all dungeons were blue.

These are worth the price, but one thing to look out for - during the recent GM sale the prices of individual tiles were cheaper than the prices of the same tiles as parts of bundles. So look around if there is a site-wide sale going on as you may be able to find an even better deal.

Highly recommended.

Thanks for your kind words, Jason. Much appreciated. The bundle/single pricing thing is a "feature" of DriveThruRPG's sales, and it's probably as frustrating for publishers as it is for customers. I know I cringe when I see bundles selling for more than the individual products they contain. It's definitely worth reviewing bundles before purchasing in all cases! Thanks again for the positive review! Happy gaming! Mark - PBE Games
Hexed Places - Bitterblack Forest

I'd have rated it a four, but somebody decided that it had to be released as a Zip file. It's not big enough to warrant that. Therefore, a rating of 3 is the best I can give it, I almost gave it a 2.

Will -- Thanks for your feedback on Bitterblack Forest. My intent with zipping the files was to make it simpler to keep them organized, but obviously, that's not working for everyone. I'll be adding separate downloads for each file to all Hexed Places this weekend. Thanks again for your feedback and your patronage, Mark -- PBE Games

Easy to view - all the maps available from Dungeons in Blue. I used a couple ideas for my own dungeons and made plans on which sets to buy in the future. Very complete.

Hexed Places - The Gray Ribs
by Emily B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/21/2014 17:27:45

Solid product that does exactly what it advertises. The writing is concise and organized, so this requires almost no prep time or rereading before use. It's a bit short, but uses the space more efficiently than most adventures and locations I've read, so it's rather worth the price.

Dungeons in Blue - Edges and Alcoves Set One
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 09/12/2013 08:34:50

Designed with flexibility and ease of use in mind, this product provides high quality traditional 'blue on white' map components in a way that makes it easy for you to create your own dungeons yet have them look very professional.

This pack contains twelve highly original areas, some caves and some constructed, which are geomorphic and hence can be linked to any other of the 'Dungeons in Blue' series of map components. Some have two exits and some just the one.

Aimed primarily for virtual table top users, people who run on a table-top should have little difficulty in piecing together what they need using a graphics package, then printing out at a suitable scale for their notes.

Although there are some features - scattered boulders, statues, pillars, doors and the like - there is plenty of space for you to add items, traps and monsters as you wish.

Excellent to give a professional yet old school feel to your games.
