Inked Adventures Blocks

This is a shameless self-promotory cross-post (from Inked Adventures) regarding my new Inked Adventures Blocks.  Especially, since trying to go full time with Inked Adventures, I'll be lucky to meet the rent this month. ;)

These printable blocks are designed for the more casual builder of dungeons - for those us who can barely glue a tab without needing a proper grown-up to be present.  They also may appeal to players who prefer dry-erase mats to tiles.  The L-corner pieces are especially useful for delineating the area of larger rooms.  This idea was borrowed from the Indy Jones RPG (TSR), the cardboard models in which had design similarities scenery included in one of the D&D BECMI modules (the title escapes me).  The pieces are reusable, but there's nothing to stop a DM gluing them down or together to create pre-made set pieces.  The blocks can also be flipped to create an "upper level" in rooms, walkways and some extent bridges across chasms and so forth.  The figures here are scavenged from the D&D 3.5 Basic box.  The brick details on the blocks were originally hand drawn in fineliner pen. PDFs are available in both A4 and US Letter size formats.

Inked Adventures Crypts Tombs and Catacombs

Apologies for the lack of posts. I was going to moan sometime about the poor durability of the Age of Rebellion box set components and maybe say some nice things about the new D&D Starter Set. But, other things have been happening and one of them was ...
