[Battle Map] Commissioned Map

This is one of three maps I'm drawing for Morné Schaap's Winter Eternal Indiegogo campaign. All the maps will be 100% compatible with my most recent battle map tile set. This map is meant to represent a segment of a covered roadway that connects cities ravaged by an icy apocalypse. Note the break in the wall with a snow pile tumbling in!

End of Summer Roundup

Well, it was a productive summer here at BBR. I finished the definitive full-color versions of the Dungeonteller core rules AND the Dungeonteller monster book AND put out fold-n-play counters of EVERY Dungeonteller monster. It's all available in PDF format here for a reasonable price given that it's copiously illustrated in full color and designed to be a pleasure to read.
The definitive set of hand-drawn iso battle maps is only a week or so away from publication. And I'm making three custom battle maps for Morné Schaap's Winter Eternal indiegogo campaign. After that I will get Rock Opera '79 into shape for release by year's end.

[Iso Battle Maps] Back Walls Added

Some of you have been asking about including walls in the set. I hand-drew a full page of stone wall texture that you can cut and paste to make walls as room backdrops. Cutting and fitting them is a bit tricky but they do a good job of letting you know how tall the ceiling is in a given room. I would consider them an option for more advanced builders! Note how I've shown two ways of doing cutaway walls (curvy edge and stepped).
The wall texture can double as a cliff or sheer drop, too.

Whimsies

The iso tile ideas just keep flowing. This is a page of wall features, including, from top left, ossuary, torch, shackles, cistern, fireplace, bricked-up doorway, niche, broken wall/mousehole, and shrine with arch and plinth.

Like all asymmetrical tiles in the forthcoming set, I will offer a mirror version of this page so that you can place a tile on a SW-NE wall or a NW-SE wall.

Hand-drawn Iso Tiles (Interior Walls Test)

One new feature of this set is strips of bricks/stones you can use to represent interior walls without obscuring the floor behind them. Look for some near the middle of this shot.

25mm Iso Battle Map Layout

Another iso battle map layout -- rearranged some elements, added some new ones. Things are getting interesting. Right now I'm drawing up elements to represent interior walls/dividing walls.
With 25mm figures for scale.
