Today I picked up a copy of Moleskin Maps: Volume 1 by Chubby Monster Games.
I’ve been following Matt Jackson’s work for awhile, and when I saw the free preview of one of the maps in the book, I was sold – especially given the $1.99 price tag.
The Portable Document Format (PDF 📖) includes 11 maps. Each map has two pages. One page is full page rendering of the map. The other page is a helpful worksheet with a 1/4 size image of the map and space to write down the Location Name, Background, Key Locations, Game Master (GM 📖) Notes, Wandering Encounters, and Major Treasure.
The mapped regions are small and digestible; With enough space to flesh out an interesting monster lair. If you are going to make your first dungeon, starting with one of these maps – don’t forget free preview – would be a great idea.
The concept of the project is simple, the execution is fabulous. With the crisply inked maps and the “fill your own micro dungeon” mindset, Moleskin Maps is a fantastic addition to my gaming arsenal.
