Tract of the Tarrasque: The (Legal) Modification
This solves everything.
Ok, it doesn't quite solve everything, but it makes the cool artwork of Jared Von Hindeman legal again in the DDM game.
We are releasing a modification for the Tract of the Tarrasque map that will permit an acid-free corridor of movement for large and for squeezed (Huge) creatures. The map still has its quirks - that's for certain. However, with this key modification, it falls within the realm of playable if skewed maps.
The modification comes in the form of released a PDF file that includes an image that measures 5.32 cm by 5.35cm. Some of you may want to cut and paste this on a scan of the map and photoshop it into place. But that's just crazy. The easiest solution is this: the PDF gets printed on a label (or sticker) available in any stationary shop and applied to the existing map of the Tarrasque.
(Some really computer-savvy folks may even adjust the PDF to get multiples printed on one label sheet, and that's cool too!)
This is the first in a series of notes and articles directed to developing small maps. So why are we doing this?
The theme for 2014 is simple and elegant.
And that is, 200 point arena.
