Title: [3rd Supplement] River in a Mountainous Landscape - I
Post by: 3rd Heiko on January 11, 2011, 07:24:43 AM
It's finally done! Our very first product is online:

River in a Mountainous Landscape – I (http://3rd-supplement.com/plansnplaces/plans/#RiaML_I), the first map in our series Plans 'n' Places is there to download at RPGNow (http://www.rpgnow.com/product_info.php?manufacturers_id=3412&products_id=87333&affiliate_id=313911) & DriveThruRPG (http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product_info.php?manufacturers_id=3412&products_id=87333&affiliate_id=313911):

If you buy it (Thank you!!), please let us know, what you are thinking about it!

Our maps are timeless, culture-free and system independent, and can be played on or populated by elves, agents, aliens, SWAT teams and, of course, any human hero of any epoch whatsoever.







We haggled over the price with ourselves; it is now $ 3.45. There’s a lot more to find in our maps than just a map: It is thought through and crafted with passion for detail, and the artwork is supported with the same passion for story telling. We provide vivid description of the terrain’s features, together with story seeds in form of first-hand accounts from NPCs who “really were there!”

Check out the preview here (http://3rd-supplement.com/plansnplaces/plans/), first.

Game on!

Nicely done and very interesting. Are these publisher resources or for personal use only?

Thanks a lot, Peter! This pdf version is for personal use only.
We're thinking about a higher resolution version in jpg for publishers to use in their products.
Would you be interested in using such maps for your own products (btw, I like your clear and recognizable covers!)? If so, any wishes regarding pricing (viable ones;))?

Game on!

Slightly revised version uploaded

We reacted to a reviewer’s concern (http://www.rpgnow.com/product_reviews_info.php?&reviews_id=41200&products_id=87333) and revised the navigation in our PDF’s page header. Originally, clicking on the running head led back to the introduction and contents. We thought this might come in handy, but at the same time, it might have been somewhat counterintuitive. Now, clicking on the running title “River in a Mountainous Landscape” leads straight to the main map. We still struggle with one of Adobe’s quirks concerning navigation: The backward button needs to be clicked twice to do its job. Some users might prefer hiding the bookmarks, so we didn’t want to drop this function completely: With the “limping” backward button, they still navigate faster, then.

It’s GM's Day Sale at DriveThruRPG & RPGNow!

25% off from our map (http://www.rpgnow.com/product_info.php?manufacturers_id=3412&products_id=87333&affiliate_id=322972), for example, but only until Monday, March 7th.

We really like the slogan the shop came up with: “No GM, no dice, better get him something nice…” Need not be our map; could be anything… but really, when did you last honor your GM’s service for the greater good of your circle of gaming friends?

Happy GM’s Day!
