What Are Tilemorphs?
Tilemorphs are print and play PDF 2x2 dungeon tile sections that you can build and use to quickly generate a wide variety of dungeon rooms and hallways quickly and easily. The sets are basic, but flexible. Modeled after Wyloch's Dungeon Tiles that I discovered on DM Scotty's Facebook Group, they use 1.25" Spaces with .25" thick walls. Meaning no matter where you put a wall, you'll always have a functional space! So you can build any layout you see in an RPG module, or mimic nearly any map you can find.
As these use a lot of straight cuts, they are very easy to assemble, even if you are just using scissors. For those that only build a room or so at a time, a single print run of a set will generally provide you with every tile you'd need to complete an area. If you want to build an entire dungeon, simply print more out.

What do you get?
Every set contains the following printable pages: Floor tiles, Single Wall Tiles, Corner Tiles, Hall Tiles, Angled Wall Tiles, Curved Wall Tiles. These simple modules let you make just about anything.
The Casual Adventurer pledge will get you the Dark Castle and Caves set; these are very basic sets which work well for more styles of adventure.
The Dungeon Dweller pledge level however, gets you quite the variety. Some of the details of these sets may change during the kickstarter based on feedback. Additionally, a few of the sets are being finished up right now, but will be done before the end.
Dark Castle - The Dark Castle set is the set we always lead with, as it's basic and flexible. A generic gray stone dungeon that can fit a wide variety of needs.
Cave - The Cave set is a brown earthy cave system.
Nether Planes - The Nether Planes are an otherwordly cave system, perfect for players that may hop planes, or even for the Underdark.
Deep Caverns - Shaded in blues, these are great for aquatic adventures, either as caves that are entirely submerged, or caves that are just intended to be dank and wet.
Tudor House - The Tudor House set is a great interior set, working perfectly for Mansions, Inns, and Homes.
Tombs - The Tomb set is an Egyptian theme locale, easily one of my favorites I have worked on.
Starlight Tower - The Starlight Tower is something entirely new, with dark stone floors contrasted by white walls, the floors are smattered with star patterns. Excellent for a sorcerer's tower or boss encounter room.
Glensdale Forest - The Glensdale Forest set is a nice simple forested and grassy set. Perfect for all your outdoor needs. Stretch Goal for the Forest Clearings has been added!
Mythic Forest - The Mythic Forest is an otherworldy forest set, designed to represent a Fae forest, or home to some long-forgotten gods.
Ice Grotto - The Ice Grotto represents a snowy waste or cave, where the bitter cold will kill the heroes just as fast as your monsters.
Sewers - Similar to the Dark Castle set, this set is darker, filled with old sewage beneath the city. Let's face it, we all start out here killing giant rats at some point.
As you can see the Dungeon Dweller gets you a ton of tiles, in a variety of locations at a really good price. But don't worry, we're not ending here. We've got expansions for many of these sets which for the kickstarter, will be freebies. However, in the future you'll have to purchase them separately.
Everyone loves Stretch Goals, including myself. So what does the future hold for Tilemorphs? Well, let's take a look. Every expansion will double the amount of tiles you receive, making it a great value.
Unlocked - Dark Castle Royalty - Adding in both water features, as well as carpeted sections and fancy tile.
Unlocked - Lava Caves - Adding Lava Features to the main Cave set. Everyone loves a little Lava!
Unlocked - Nether Planes Phantom Flows - Adding the Phantom Flows (think green lava, but could represent Ethereal energy and such) to the Nether Caves set, this will create a whole new threat to your party.
Unlocked - Deep Caverns Water - Adding Water tiles to the Deep Caverns just seems like a smart idea, so here they are!
Unlocked - Tudor House Mansion - We put in some nice carpeted floors, stone tiles, and a few other needed features to allow you to build a great mansion.
Unlocked - Glensdale Forest Clearings - Adding in larger open spaces with trees and more flowers and plants, this gives you a much more vibrant setting.
Unlocked - Mythic Forest Clearings - Pretty much the same as the Glensdale Forest Clearings set, we want to include more features.
Unlocked - Ice Grotto Frozen Ponds - Ice Crystals, along with new frozen water tiles, make this area even more treacherous than it was before.
Unlocked - Tombs Water - To make the tomb even more beautiful we're adding in various water features, pools, and such.

Risks and challenges
Well, I've done two other AdventureCraft kickstarters and learned quite a bit on how to make these run smoothly. Each of them has always had a few hiccups; be it email difficulties, or pledge manager problems. So as long as I don't have any weird flukes with getting the files distributed, I don't foresee having any problems.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
