The wilderness tileset

Postby Maike05 » Friday November 11th, 2011 8:23pm

Hello everybody, I'm curently attempting to create a new tileset which will take place in the wilderness. This new tileset, as my previous ones, will be modular and with a squared format (6x6) so that it fits perfectly together.

You may wonder what it has to do with dungeons? Well I assume that the heroes have to travel a long journey before getting to the entrance of the dungeon, therefore, I need some new tiles to represent that journey. In fact, I created a house rule system for travelling. Basically I assume that dungeons are generally located in desertic areas, therefore, assuming you're coming from a village, an important city or the capital, your travel will take more or less time.

Let's say the nearest village is about 4 days of walking. In 4 days, many things could happen to my Heroes ! They could be attacked by robbers, encounter a wild troll, be lost, etc. Those 4 days represent 4 random events that can occure anytime during the day. As a consequence, I created a special 'random travel event' table where I can roll a D66 (1D6 is for the tens and the other for the units) and get a result which will tell me what happen to my heroes and in which settings. This system is extremely flexible, powerful and really funny because you never know what will happen!

Here is a first shot I made to give you an idea of the general tileset :

Please give me a feedback, any constructive critics are welcomed ! :D

Just to be pedantic taking the tens and units off 2 D6s gives you a D56 because 1 to 10 can't be rolled.

Did you get your terrain off google earth?

Hello, a D66 gives you 10,20,30,40,50,60 for the tens and combined with 01,02,03,04,05,06 for the units, so 6x6 possibilities = 36 ;)

No I didn't took it from google maps, but thank you for the compliment, it seems it's good quality then ;)

Something I forgot to mention :

"X" represent a blocked tile.
"/\" represent a higher tile or something you can hide behind when there is a fight with bow.

How about making the trees and rocks seperate from the ground. That way players can put them where they please.

Looks good by the way!
Only critisism is that they repeat. THAT rock is right there on all the boards. Minor thing, but a thing none the less.
