Greetings fellow gamers! October is already a third gone, and soon Halloween will be upon us. Personally, I think that this month above all others should be made National Role-Playing Game Month! Let’s face it, what other time of the year do we combine scary monster stuff, haunted locales, and – for at least a good section of the country – weather that is conducive for staying indoors and wanting a good game to play?
And while we’re on the topic of role-playing games, I have a review this week of yet another role-playing game product on EN World. In this case, I am continuing on discussing RPG accessories which I started from last week’s review of a new miniatures line from Dungeon Crawler. So today, I thought I’d take a look at a dungeon tile set from Rusty Axe Games, which would go quite nicely with the miniatures from last week, I might add.
Regretfully, the Rusty Axe Dungeon Tiles (Core Set) comes only in PDF format, which requires a GM to print and cut their own tiles – which turns out to be a fairly expensive proposal! For all the details about these dungeon tiles, please click on the link, and head over to EN World News for the full review:
For my own part, I’ll stick with buying full sets of dungeon tiles in a non-electronic format. I should say that if I owned my own laser printer, I might consider buying a PDF tile set and printing my own. However, that set would have to be something fairly exceptional, either thematically or in art style, to make me want to go through the process of making my own tiles. Personally, I love the fact that there are a lot of tiles on the market these days, with great artwork, and modest pricing, particularly from discount online shops. PDF dungeon tile sets really have to bring something special to the table to compete in the marketplace, and I’m still waiting (and hoping) to see a set that will change my mind.
So until next blog… I wish you Happy Gaming!
