So I think Jamesnardia talked about this a long-ass time ago, but I was doing some searching looking for some cool hex maps that belong to other games. The Outdoor Survival map is sort of bland. The Divine Right map is really fantastic, but the hexes go the wrong way and they aren't numbered. I stumbled across this old rpg.net post, which pointed me to this page of old war games that you can download for free. There are a couple of nice hex maps in there. The Barbarian Prince one is very good, but I think the DEMONLORD one is my favorite, mainly because someone took the time to clean it up so nicely. It prints out beautifully on portrait-oriented 11x17 paper. I printed up two copies and will be keeping them in my back pocket for a bit. If I can manage to find a way to shoehorn already-explored Outland locations into a suitable spot, I may even decide to use it as my new campaign map. Only a few hexes have been traversed in Outland, so it is likely within the realm of possibility. I also sent a copy to a buddy who is decent with photoshop to see if he would be able to remove the place names to allow for further customization. Anyways, I thought it was neat and worth sharing.
It is a great map, very atmospheric, and I think alternate versions can be found at Boardgamegeek and Consimworld for it.ReplyDelete
I'd recommend trying the game itself, too. One of my favorite fantasy wargames. Very flavorful, and heck, it might make for a good background to a campaign played out on the map.
