Default The Fantasy Trip: In the City, and Other Titles?

While painting minis for my Tollenkar game I'm wondering what other titles could be in the works - The Fantasy Trip: In the City? TFT: In the Wilderness? TFT: On the High Seas?

In the city would be good.

I wish Paizo would carry hex based maps in addition to the square one's they do. I've got a couple from them with a desert setting.

Having some different maps is the reason I suggested to SJ a while back to offer the map's from Gurps: Man to Man, give some variety.

Bring on the High Seas and Piracy module! With rules for naval combat which zooms in to ship-board combat with some nice deck plans.

Ages ago there was a Space Gamer article about ship-to-ship combat. I still have the deck plans I made to go with those. Hand drawn hexagons ftw! ;)

It would be nice to have some pre-made megahex maps. Of course, as a professional cartographer I should be able to make my own.

I've been tempted to digs those out and make use of them. I know I have them somewhere, probably buried in a bin in my game closet. This is a good reminder for me to dig them out. Thanks.

Here are some megahex maps, pre-made by me. The maps are on master slide layouts so you can copy the doc and add your own map configurations. That makes it easy to make a bunch of slides that share maps without having to worry about accidentally moving the hexes around when you want to move counters. Google Slides doesn't have a "lock" feature for drawing elements but it does have master slides.

Me too!
However, I was bugged to discover that those ships were way too thin (warships were only 3 hexes wide for example). I still have my too thin ships on heavy cardboard at the bottom of my TFT box.

Warm regards, Rick.

I believe that article is: Ships & Swords: Naval Melee by Glenn L. Williams. The Space Gamer No.24 Sept-Oct 1979 p11

Issue 22 has what is probably my favorite cover. Every time I see that I want to play that. I even used it as my Facebook profile pic for awhile.
