Christopher West, owner of Maps of Mastery, gaming cartographer, and all around nice guy is at it again. He’s got THREE double sided poster maps that he’s currently attempting to fund on Kickstarter. The maps were designed with fantasy in mind, but there’s no reason that they can’t be used for anyone’s game, such as a volcanic lair for a supers game, or an ancient ruin on a god-forsaken planet in the middle of a dangerous sector of space, or… well, let your imagination run wild. Here’s a link to the site where you can pledge your support for these amazing pieces of gaming accessory.
For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the idea behind Kickstarter, it is essentially an online pledge drive. A company/private individual puts up a project that they are attempting to get funded. People can then pledge their support for the project. Oftentimes, the person behind the project will offer incentives for pledges, such as copies of the finished product at cheaper rates, mentions in donation notes, etc etc.
And, if for whatever reason, the project doesn’t get funded, you aren’t out your money. You don’t actually pay anything unless it reaches its goal within the alloted time.
So come on, Gamer Nation. Let’s get this series of maps funded for the good Mr. West.
