This project will fund the production of two useful, high-quality, and attractive erasable maps for roleplaying games, strategy games, war games, and other tabletop gaming needs: a fantasy castle (49 by 30 inches) and pirate ship (36 by 20 inches). These maps will use one inch squares to indicate distance. Upon completion of this project we will first make these maps available to our backers, and only then to retailers worldwide through distribution and directly to customers through our website.

Each of these robust erasable maps will be good for many, many individual gaming sessions! Thus, even though they are more expensive than other sorts of gaming maps, they are in the long run a much better bargain than other similar products, such as single-use disposable paper maps.

Although these maps are much more durable and elegant than maps you print yourself, we'll throw in an electronic version of every map that you back so you can print it too!

These maps have been designed by veteran gaming cartographer Keith Curtis, responsible for much of the cartography in Hero Games books published over the last decade.

Risks and challenges

Our primary concern would be working with a new factory to mass produce this type of product. While we at Blackwyrm Games are veteran publishers, we haven't mass produced erasable maps before, and there are always potential obstacles when creating a mass produced product for the first time. However, should the factory we are signing a contract with fail to provide a quality product in a timely manner, we will locate a new factory and get the maps made all the same!
