GeekyLyndsay and Tom(DB)Lommel cosplaying “Dungeons & Dragons” at Ennies 2014. Dress by @GeekyLyndsay. Photo by @Nullzone42 (Twitter name tags)

A little delayed from August, but here is a photo of the exuberant GeekyLyndsay at the Ennies 2014 in an awesome dress she made herself with patience and dedication, using the printed cotton sporting our geomorphic map designs.  In fact it was by GL’s request that we started to submit designs to the Spoonflower site. Thanks to her and others who are crafting such wonderful stuff.  The fabric shown here can be purchased from Billiam Babble’s Spoonflower page.

The Spoonflower fabrics are perfect for home tailored clothes, curtains and, presumably, the ultimate in gaming tablecloths.

Hero Sized Furniture Packs amended links

Posted By on October 27, 2014

Link corrections. We’re having some trouble with our bitly links and the Hero Sized Furniture counter packs (on DTRPG). Perhaps it’s also because DTRPG are updating their database this afternoon. Anyhow. Here are the corrected links to both packs. If the links are not working, please check again later.

Thanks – Billiam babble, Inked Adventures.

Amendments

Posted By on September 26, 2014

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.

P8_Crypts_Corrected_A4 (PDF 800k)
P8_Crypts_Corrected_Letter (PDF 800k)

After feedback and reviews we also felt that Crypts PDF would benefit from some extra “decrepit” rooms and corridor dead-ends.

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!

Improvising with dungeon tiles

Posted By on October 13, 2013

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…).

Happy dungeoneering!

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)

Competitions and photos from players

Posted By on July 6, 2013

A massive thank you to the Frugal GM for running their recent competition and a massive congratulations to the winner Dungeon Mama for her adventure report and superb photos of our tiles in use.


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. :)

http://sirrob01.wordpress.com/2013/06/15/papercraft-build-inked-adventures-dungeon-cut-up-basic/

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

Packaging for Geomorph Tiles from TGC

Posted By on March 9, 2013

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)

Large hand drawn geomorph tiles for figures w.i.p.

Posted By on March 3, 2013

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.

Packs of Geomorph Tiles on TheGameCrafter

Posted By on February 23, 2013

Inked Adventures Hand Drawn Geomorph Tiles from The Game Crafter site

Inked Adventures Hand Drawn Geomorph Tiles from The Game Crafter site with rounded corners!

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:

https://www.thegamecrafter.com/games/inked-adventures-geomorph-tiles

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! ;)

Replacement Hand Drawn Geomorph Tiles

Posted By on January 25, 2013

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.
