The purpose of this project is to fund a print run of pads designed for sketching geomorphic map tiles. The Pad of Geomorphic Intent (PoGI) will be A7 (74x105mm) sized and will be litho printed with a light grey 7mm grid (giving 10x14 squares per sheet). The pads will each have 50 sheets glued along the top edge and attached to a backing card.
Geomorphs are a great way of assembling dungeons. There are hundreds of samples on the internet to serve as inspiration. If you filled just a couple of these pads with sketches, then you could lay out a vast dungeon level measuring almost 3 feet square.
Whilst it is easy enough to cut geomorphs from regular squared paper using a PoGI is far more convenient. Drawing on these pads is also greatly enhanced because they have 7mm squares rather than the standard 5mm found in most Letter/A4 sized pads of squared paper. The photo below shows the same geomorph drawn using a PoGI sheet with 7mm squares (left) compared to a sheet with 5mm squares (right).
The pads will be posted by Royal Mail Second Class post to UK backers, and by Airmail to all overseas backers.
I have several exciting Stretch Goals ready to add to this project, and will reveal the first one when funding reaches 50% of the main goal.
Risks and challenges
This is my second Kickstarter project this year and I will be using the same supplier that I did for my first project (pads of character sheets). The print-ready PDF for the PoGI is ready to go, and my printer only takes 7-10 days to produce the finished pads. If the project is very successful, with hundreds rather than dozens of backers, then I will clear several days in my schedule to make sure there are no delays in posting out rewards to backers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
