Christopher West is creating Maps of Mystery and More!

In 2017, patrons at this site funded three complete, modular, sci-fi starship maps scaled for use with miniatures, in printable sections. We made a cargo freighter, a passenger transport, and a starfighter escort carrier! None of those would have been possible without the support of people like you, and I'm extremely grateful for the opportunity. Now, in 2018, I'm branching out to provide even more new content that should appeal to fans of any genre...

There will be another set of sci-fi map tiles, of course, but now I'm adding some modern map tiles to the mix, and fulfilling one of the long-term goals I set out for this campaign:

I'm bringing back the Maps of Mystery!

The Maps of Mystery were a series of full-page maps featured in the pages of Dungeon magazine. They've been gone for about a decade, and frankly I think it's time to fix that.

Through your support on this site, they're finally coming back. And if support here grows in the months ahead, I intend to publish articles with related adventure hooks to go with them and maybe even bring back the Global Positioning series of modern maps from Polyhedron, as well!

This year we're going deeper into my sketchbook than ever before, and producing a whole host of new content along the way. I hope you'll join us for the ride!

Goals
$356 of $400 per month
If we reach this level, I intend to add another piece of monthly content in the form of another terrain card or an additional Map of Mystery. My hope is to broaden the range of content to include even more popular gaming genres, so that every month has something useful for anyone, no matter what sort of games you play.
