I Made a Hex Paper!

I'm always trying to find a nice sheet of hex paper to draw on, and have always had trouble finding something close to what I wanted. So I decided to figure out how to do it myself, and came up with this:

16x10 Hex Sheet

Nothing fancy here. Just a single sheet with some numbered hexes on it. It doesn't look like much, but there are 160 hexes on it. One interesting thing per hex, and you'll get a lot of mileage out of it.

Hopefully someone besides myself finds it useful!

  2. Good for choice. A day or so back Talysman posted one too, with large hexes overlaid:

  3. Black Blade printed new 11x17 pads of duplex hex paper, with the hexes on each side respectively sized for Greyhawk and The Wilderlands. Both hex patterns are grouped into six-hex "campaign-sized" hexes, too. $13 + shipping for a pad of 40 sheets, if anyone's interested :D (They're not available in our web store yet, but will be soon: http://black-blade-publishing.com/Store.aspx ).

  4. A campaign map in 80 x 50 mile "sectors"!

    1. That is certainly one approach. That is partly why I set up an even number of columns and rows - so you could join up multiple sheets for expansion purposes. Although I think you can get a lot of gaming out of a single sheet as well.
