There is a little project on Kickstarter right now for a terrain set that allows for quick and easy set up. Terratiles: Coasts & Rivers from Heath and Seth Robinson’s Rainn Studios is the second offering from this dynamic duo with the first being Misty Moorlands.
These beautifully designed hex tiles allow you to set up a 6×4 foot playing area. While these are only flat printed pieces they do offer some foam pieces as a stretch goal to give different elevation and I bet with some of the creative geniuses we have as members they can come up with all kinds of options for adding dimension to these tiles.
One idea they the creators have for this project was to use the terrain in an RPG and only lay one tile down at a time and as the adventure party continues on they only get the next tile revealed when they have traveled beyond the borders of the current tile, a great way for DMs to keep their players on their toes and give them a real sense of adventuring. Oh, and the tiles are easy to store in their own box and placed on a shelf, so for all of you with limited space this might be an extra bonus.
What do you think of these Terratiles?
