Sept 21, 2017

Heroic Maps has released Stories: Pyramid of the Sun Priests.

Deep within the rainforest and jungle of the Ixtlu Peninsula, the Sun Priests still perform their bloody rituals, despite the Empire they served having collapsed millenia before. The pyramid rises from the forest canopy, and is crested by a blood-stained altar. Within the pyramid are two temple chambers, one of which includes a sacrificial pit. Victims are shoved into the pit, alive or dead, as an offering to the Sun. If they survive the fall, they don’t survive the perils that lurk below.

Contents: A set of two 30 x 30 maps depicting stepped pyramid in a jungle. Three sets of steps climb the sides of the pyramid, two of which reach the peak where there is a sacrificial altar. The third set lead to a doorway into a temple chamber within the pyramid. Internal stairs lead to another chamber with a pit. Below the pit is a full cavern complex, with pools of water, jungle plants where the surface has collapsed to allow light in, and piles of victim’s bodies. Perfect for jungle adventures in Aztec / Mayan / Incan inspired settings.

Outland Scouts Unit Expansion for Runewars being Released Soon!

Sept 12, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the upcoming release the Outland Scouts Unit Expansion for the Daqan of Runewars Miniatures Game!!

Among the distant villages across the back country of Terrinoth, and in the untamed woods that separate the baronies, men and women rise to meet the call of the Daqan and do their part to hold the line against the rising darkness. These simple folk rarely join the regimented ranks of spearmen or knights, but many isolated hamlets owe their continued existence to the vigilance of these scouts, who stamp out small dangers without ever being seen or rally garrisons to fend off larger threats.

As dangers grow in the East, the lords of Terrinoth’s baronies must call in their forces from even the most distant villages.

The Outland Scouts Unit Expansion includes eight figurines and two Plastic Infantry Trays to house them, as well as a collection of tokens and five available upgrade cards to strengthen your Daqan forces.

August 31, 2017

Heroic Maps has released Upper Lockgold Street, a  set of printable battlemaps compatible with any RPG/Dungeon-Crawl game. Use as a standalone gameboard, or combine with any same-scale tileset.

They say that Upper Lockgold Street is paved with gold, but whilst that’s clearly a metaphor, it’s small wonder that people recognise the area as a wealthy one. Home to the city Law Courts, a powerful bank and a renowned library, people pay a fortune to live on the same street. But, like the cheap wood revealed behind peeling gold leaf, strip away the wealth of the street and find the cellars and sewers beneath.

Contents: A set of three 20 x 20 maps depicting a wealthy city street. The ground level features a law court, bank, library, restaurant, fine-shop and several houses. Each of these buildings has an upper floor, with bedrooms and offices. Below the streets are sewers, basements and cellars, with laundry rooms, vaults, jails, archives, counterfeiter workshops and much more. Your party may need to venture below the street when planning their bank heist!
Also included are 300dpi full size jpgs, for poster printing or VTT. (n.b. gridless version only available as jpeg)

“I’m so excited to be working with Paul and George to bring their unique world to life. The Roleplaying game is a great way to introduce everyone to Overlight and the world is so rich that we decided not to stop there.

Some people might find themselves stranded in the arid wastelands of a hostile nation and rail against the fates that led them there. You? You begin the long journey north, endure the many trials along your way, and look for any opportunity to strike back at the enemy.

One of those opportunities has now arrived… The Black Serpent, the fourth Adventure Pack in the Haradrim cycle, is now available for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game!

Even while tired and hungry and hundreds of miles from the safety of Gondor, your heroes are willing and eager to temporarily set aside their thoughts of home to launch a raid against the Southron caravan that they find carrying tributes to the Dark Lord of Mordor. The element of surprise may be with them at the outset, but they’ll have to strike swiftly and true. The Southrons greatly outnumber them.
