DramaScape June Week Four Release: City Blocks 02

People have been asking us for another City Blocks map, so your wish is our command. City Blocks 02 is the second set of our popular City Blocks (one of our few Electrum titles on DTRPG), which features an older city block with brick roads and signs of urban decay such as cracks on the streets and sidewalks. The City Blocks can be used to make chase scenes come to life, urban city warfare in military games or wargaming, city planning for urban games (with 50 + buildings on the maps, you can plan out a whole area of an urban game as to building purposes, who lives where, major NPC locations), or a setting for a gonzo destructive Kaiju versus giant robots game with the city as terrain for destruction and backdrop to the fight.

We recommend that you buy the Bundle deal, as you will get City Blocks 1 & 2 at half price or if you already have City Blocks 1, you will only pay $1 for City Blocks 02.

The Problems of Game Scheduling in your 30s.

Well I had to cancel today's planned session for two reasons.

One is its Father's Day which is a family orientated day for some players.

Second, two of my players are at a little thing called Ragnarok, a week long LARP Dagorhir event in PA, meaning they are unavailable for gaming this Sunday and next Sunday. One of the two players had their character captured by the V'sori last time, so I also feel like they should be at the next session since the goal of the first scene will be to free his character.

Scheduling games in the summer is particularly difficult. It seems like every weekend, Saturday and Sunday are filled with events. Four of my players only have Sunday availability, so that is when we schedule games. But even Sunday has a lot of holidays, birthdays, and other life events that get in the way of gaming. In the teens and 20s, we could play 8 hours on a weekend with no problems (and once played 24 hours all weekend long in a marathon), now we are lucky to get 4-6 hours in on the weekend as everyone's life paths have diverged.

Its gonna be a rough month with no games scheduled. I have a game scheduled July 3, 2016. On the plus side, Ted is going to start Deadlands: The Last Sons after Ragnarok. So I'll get to play for the first time in a while.

The courtyard has a large chasm running through it and has become filled with water over time and a ruined building with nothing but the foundation left. This map can be used in a post-post apocalyptic setting (one after an apocalypse but with the land recovering), as a modern map of a disaster area that has been uninhabited for a long while, or a lost world of a building that was swallowed up by the earth and is part of a subterranean underworld.

DramaScape June Week Two Release: Desert River Village


Desert River Village is an exterior map of a river cutting through the desert with two small islands in the middle. On the islands is a small village of six buildings, a guard tower, and a well. The islands are reached via bridges from the north and a sailing boat on the south bank of the river can be used to ferry people across the river or to the village from that direction.

Desert River Village is intended for use in fantasy games, but could easily be used as an archaic village in a pulp or modern game as well. This map is extremely useful for games set along a desert river such as the Nile, Tigris, and Euphrates, and other rivers where civilization originally flourished on Earth or as a base camp for exploration in a desert based fantasy campaign.
