This month my second tileset for Profantasy has been released. The June 2011 Annual style is a dungeon tileset, with skeletons, treasure, lava, dark pits and sarcophagi. Your players can wade through fields of poisoned mushrooms or sit down for dinner on a red leather throne. This set has a solid core of all the things you need to build your villain’s evil lair.
It’s been over a year since I created my free tileset for maptool, and this is an evolution of that style. While the free tileset was created at 100px per 5 feet square, this set is illustrated at 500px per square. The extra detail really shows. It was great to get to dig into the details on the different pieces. So if you create a map with this set you can print it out at 500dpi – crazy high resolution.
I threw together a quick dungeon with these tiles – and if you can figure out a plot for the map you are free to use it! (click the image for a larger version)
It’s a privilege to be able to create these tilesets. I’ve been dead chuffed to see the March overland style turning up in maps over the internet. I hope that this Dungeon style helps people make some truly deadly lairs to challenge their players. If you spot a map in this style I’d love to get a link to it to check out what people come up with.
This set can also be used outside Profantasy products. The images are all pngs with transparent backgrounds and can be used in virtual tabletops for online play. This is how I’ll be using them. If you want to use them this way send the guys at Profantasy a note and they’ll walk you through the process to extract the individual pngs.
