These are really impressive. I like all the details that went into making them feel 3d. Like the one with the giant bugs saying "Hello". Very well done. My complements to the mapper.

I just noticed something "horrible". It looks like these are being done on a wet-erase mat. Which means they are used for the game and then erased so the mat can be used again. That seems like such a waste of awesome talent. I can easily see some of these maps being used and reused. Have you thought about using something like Gaming Paper for these?

Yeah, the first few maps of Siege of Bordrin's Watch were done on a chessex map with vis a vis and the artist felt limited. That's when we switched to the graph easel pad and prismacolor markers so she could go nuts.

My "fears" have been assuaged. Give my complements to her. Those maps look awesome.

These are great. It's also pretty awesome to see (what I assume) a family putting time and effort into their game and having a great time doing it.

Exactly. After 3 years (did we really start in 2010!?!) we've filled our first easel pad with maps (50 pages) and I don't want to get rid of it for the sheer memories attached. There isn't a lot we can all do together and enjoy every week that doesn't cost $60 or more dollars each time and certainly not anything I can think of that builds on itself every time. Building a campaign depth and memories and shared experiences is one of my favorite things about D&D. Doing it with my family however has been awesome. Instead of boring them with old war stories, I can share them with them!

These are amazing!

Have you looked into Gaming Paper? The easel is a good option, but Gaming Paper may work better for your guys. If not, rock on. But I really hope you guys keep those maps around.

I'll second both the amazingness and the Gaming Paper suggestion. We use Gaming Paper at our table and, although our results are substantially less artistic than yours, it works very well.

My favorite use thus far has actually been building a "non-Euclidean" space by cutting apart a foot or so of one roll and making each navigable surface a separate mini-map. But it does a really good job at any map size.

Cheers!

The easel pads have 50 sheets that fit my table, I can flip through multiple maps at a session, and when I'm done they all stay together and store quickly under the couch. What are the advantages that gaming paper would have instead?
