Giant Modular Digital Terrain that can be matched with each other or themselves, Top, Left, Right, Bottom, or Flipped Vertically.
These unique 300dpi JPEG Maps are specially designed to fit with each other and join paths top-bottom, left-right or flipped vertically to create huge instant seamless terrains. The special repeating exit/entrance ensures the smaller paths and larger roads always line up giving terrain extraordinary continuity. This lets you blend sci-fi with fantasy or any other map from the entire series.
Kickstarted in 2015 - Meanders: Modular Battlemaps are enormous 27x18" tactical digital battlemaps beautifully designed and built in a 1" = 5ft scale that can be printed or used in and are sold from the world's best Virtual Tabletop RPG Systems. Similar in design to the smaller more common Dungeon Tiles - Meanders offer inexpensive beautiful hi-resolution gaming maps designed with tactical and strategic terrain in mind - saving valuable time and preparation as a DM.
The word "Meander" is an old English word meaning 'winding course' - it neatly describes what these unique battlemaps do by creating sprawling words with endless joinable pathways that lead from one map into the next for players to explore.
Every individual Meander sold from Game Tile Warehouse provides you with 5 different types, 27x18" with a Hex Grid (HX), 27x18" with a Square Grid (L#) , 27x18" with No Grid (L) , a medium size 2700x1800 to suit a grid layover of 100px (M), and a small size 1350x900 to suit a grid layover of 50px (S). This lets you choose whether you need hi-resolution to print, or a lower resolution to play VTT.
Many battlemaps are not designed for VTT - they pinch the furniture, restrict pathways, clutter the spaces, make it hard for your character to stand on a clear space - not so with Meanders: for the most part my maps are uncluttered even when furnished so you have more control over what is represented on the map, and my designs always provide clear access and passage for characters to move through the areas without overlapping furnishings. Built on a 1" scale, and designed to suit the power of certain VTT's my maps will easily match up to the grid you place over them.
Meanders file names let you distinguish the genre, series, number and size or grid type by providing a neat system of identification - in recent tiles even road and river joins are described using an additional code. Meanders are also pre-packaged into the most popular formats for VTT.
Fantasy Grounds packs offer 1350x900 sets of maps to avoid lag and a visual panel that shows you the maps in a pinned catalogue making it easy to select the one you want, plus text descriptions of each map to identify terrain features you may need by sight.
Roll20 packs feature maps specially re-sized for that platform at 140px per square and currently holds a superior larger range of Meander products. Only Game Tile Warehouse (GTW) hosts Meanders as individual files - but such a large catalogue means hundreds of kickstarted maps have yet to be loaded into the system.
Their modularity and compatibility with themselves and almost 1650 other Meanders make them an extremely diverse, limitless and powerful tool in your RPG arsenal: to date the series offers dozens of genres including:
Fantasy City (All Four Seasons, Nocturnal) Dwarven, Underdark, Forest, Snow, Ice, Jungle, Desert, Cave, River, Road, Village, Cemetery, Medieval City, Castle, Cthulhu, Victorian Mansion, College of Magic, Wizard Tower, Ruined Tower, Spider Forest, Dead Forest, Farm, Dungeon, Crypt, Tavern, Dragon, Ocean, Wild West, Swamp, Treetop, Mountain, Arcane Library, Mausoleum, Necromancers Lair, Plague Village, Flooded Village, Witches House & Woods, Deep Roads, Temples, Mines, Gemstone Cavern, Alien Mothership, Planet, Moonbase, Galactic Cruiser, Tundra, Savannah, Zombie, Modern City, Post-Apocalyptic, Modern: Tsunami, and Lovecraft 'Dunwich' - with hundreds more already in development.
A goal of 3000 maps is planned by the close of 2021 to form my 'Meanderverse' - the most comprehensive interchangeable digital terrain system in the world. While it could already claim that title - I want to leave absolutely no doubt.
I frequently return to previous maps to offers expansions through Kickstarter - after which maps slowly make their way to the GTW Store and Roll20*. I also work closely with my customers and backers during and after releases to understand what genres and types of maps they want to see making it an interactive design process.
Browse individual maps marked with a key description on the red ribbon from the GTW Store when you need a particular map in a hurry or use the search bar. Meanders are also compatible with Soloman Temple Squares and all of my other products - all of which have also been built on a 1" scale.
