We have executed our layout artist and proof editor for errors and omissions from the Crypts pack. Tonight many Bothans died in the struggle to deliver new files to appropriate websites. In the possible event of a failure to update customer libraries in time we are providing the amended Page 8 here (the corridor sections on that page were eleven squares long but measured 10 inches … something was very wrong) Please feel free to download the following one page PDF.
After feedback and reviews we also felt that Crypts PDF would benefit from some extra “decrepit” rooms and corridor dead-ends.

Thank you for your custom and patience. :)

Heroically-Sized Furniture Counters – printable PDF
Currently $1.50 USD on DTRPG / RPGNow and other sites.
These Heroically-Sized Furniture Counters are inspired by scenery from an older style of dungeon board game where dungeon furniture is standardised by area and not proportion. In this PDF the cut-out counters roughly cover 3×1 squares and 3×2 squares, with the exception of the chest which is 2×2 squares. (1 square = 1 inch when printed at 100% scale)

Plus a 2×2 Chest counter

Belated thank you
Thanks (and apologies) to gamers and fans who have sent photos of their games and examples of customisations of our dungeon tiles and cut-up sections. We will endevour to post the pictures up soon in a suitable location with credits. May we also draw attention to our Tumblr page which features works-in-progress and submitted photos from gamers: http://inkedadventures.tumblr.com
Also a very quick thank you to Ye Olde Inn for nominating us for a Liebster award (grin).
Happy gaming and may your dungeons continue to be beautiful!

I am amazed at the resourcefulness of some DMs. Tabletop gamer, Steve Clarkson, sent me these maps, which are composited using different commercial mapping graphics -including adapted Inked Adventures products (plus EVG’s Vexing Sands) and even old rough pieces I’d stashed away on my deviant art page.
I think that they are rather awesome. :)
Inked Adventures primarily publish printable dungeon sections (which are cut up and assembled at the gaming table) – and have yet to wander to deeply into the electronic world of VTT maps, but it’s something IA are looking into. Steve, like other customers, has also requested outdoor sections/tiles, especially forests – which given enough time will definitely become a reality (given enough time … and a little self-cloning…).

I’m a little late with this … by nearly a month!
Sjeng over at Ye Olde Inn’s Hero Quest community blog has announced the winners to their competition where entrants were asked to submit photos and a game report of Inked Adventures Large Scale Geomorph Tiles in use in a game (or using the sample pack at least)
Congratulations and thank yous to IvanBach and Daedalus for their wonderful photo submissions.
(If Flash isn’t enabled: Try viewing IvanBach’s Flickr photo-story set here)

Thanks again for downloading our products, having fun and spreading the word! :)

A very cool review and competition has been posted at Ye Olde Inn – a blog specialising in playing and customising the classic dungeon board game RPG HeroQuest.
Inked Adventures’ own designs are greatly influenced by the art in games like HeroQuest, AHQ and Warhammer Quest, so seems apt (and an honour) that HQ players might choose to use our tiles.
Papercrafting artist, designer and blogger, Sirrob01 has created a beautiful set of dungeon sections using the Inked Adventures Basic Pack – with modifications. :)
Sirrob01 has modified the Inked Adventures Dungeon Sections Basic Pack ( http://bit.ly/IAbasic ) which is deliberately irregular in order to suit many maps in games – it even has diagonal passages. For simpler, but slightly more regular tiles, the Square Dungeon Tiles set ( http://bit.ly/squaredungeontiles ) is also one of our bestsellers. Free bonus tiles : http://bit.ly/4x4bonus

Our first glimpse of the Hand Drawn Geomorph Tiles from The Game Crafter in their new packaging. The foam inlay has two bays which are handy in play for organising the tile deck. We’re also considering a more compact box, but for now this is what the pre-print tiles from TGC arrive in. (The tiles are 3.5 in sq appx each)

Prototype testing for large scale/figure geomorph tiles. The larger tiles are 10”x10” – to the standard scale of 1″=5′=1sq – as requested by many of the customers who bought the hand drawn geomorph tiles (which are a small, yet handy, 3 to 3.5 inches square). Each tile is cut from two pages printed on card.
The art was originally intended for small tiles only, I’m impressed at how the pen art looks at a larger size – naturally all of the inaccuracies have been expanded too. ;)
I must confess, I ended up playing with the Lego whilst setting this up. I dedicate these images to everyone who supplements their tabletop games with Lego minifigs.

We’ve having a few hiccups just trying to make the Geomorph Dungeon Tiles available in printed form through TheGameCrafter site.
I’m now able to buy my own boxed tile packs (72, 3.5in square, cards per pack) from this page:
Hopefully everyone else will be able to too, and hopefully our product will appear in the searchable store index.
These tiles are slightly larger than the those in the PDF on DTRPG – they are three and half inches square. I’ll be working on figure scale geomorph tiles soon.
TheGameCrafter is a Print On Demand site, so prices can sometimes be a little higher than card games that are printed in bulk. Also watch out for postal insurance and high shipping charges. In the UK I had an extra handling charge after the package was stopped by customs. If it happens again I’ll but up a note on the TheGameCrafter store page recommending the product to US and Canadian customers only – all other buyers beware! ;)

I’ve found in the original pack that there were a couple of repeat tiles (tiles 97 and 98 in the DM’s notes file) so I’ve replaced them with the following graphics.
If you bought through the OBS sites (DriveThru, RPGNow, WargameVault etc) the product will have been automatically updated in your Library. This design may also become available in a free sample pack – to be published shortly.

If you’ve tried to create your own dungeon crawl game or tried to play something resembling D&D with your own children then you’ll appreciate most of Rab’s observations in his blog, The Geekly Digest
Rab has been working on a children-friendly fantasy RPG called GoblinQuest (working title). In the play-testing with his sons I’m honoured to see that he has been using the Inked Adventures Modular Dungeon Sections. Check out his blog for more information.

Jack Berberette / The Game Hermit has been constructing a HUGE dungeon map on his game room wall using Inked Adventures Modular Dungeon Sections (with some designs from the Square Dungeon Tiles, I believe)
Slide show of a few photos (flash required)
These were taken from one of The Game Hermit’s photo albums on Facebook.
