The Geomorphs Keep Coming

That little snowball that Dyson Logos started back in 2009 has become an avalanche. More and more folks from the DIY RPG community are pitching in with their own tiles based on his 10'x10'/2-exits-to-the-side format. The first on the bandwagon was Risus Monkey (he said modestly), followed by the Stonewerks, Talysman, and Sigurd Sigurd. JD Jarvis of Aeons & Auguries filled in the gaps with some oddly shaped tiles and Amanda Michaels adapted the format to a post-apocalyptic urban setting.

Now Paul Gorman of Quickly, Quietly, Carefully jumps into the mix with two sets of tiles (here and here). Thanks to all these geomorphs, Dave's Mapper is becoming the "go-to" tool for generating sweet dungeons on the fly.

And there are also the "semi-compatible" cave & lair geomorphs by Blair of Planet Algol:

I think I missed those when they were originally posted, thanks for the reminder!

Is it tacky or otherwise poor form to say I'm jumping on this bandwagon too?

@Glenn Jupp: Not tacky at all, welcome to club! I'll be sure to include you in the next update.

Amanda said...

Hey thanks for the mention. :) I'm going to add some more tiles to the post apocalyptic set and also do edges and corners here pretty soon.

Risus Monkey said...

@Amanda: Thanks for dropping by. I love your apocalyptic tiles. Can't wait to see the new ones that are coming.

Looks like I'll have a bunch of new tile artists to get in touch with once I'm back to updating the mapper. I had no idea this project would keep me so busy :)

@David: I have no idea what your traffic stats are, but word-of-mouth (and print) has it that your project is very popular in this community.

It seems to be popular - more than the rest of my site (sadly).

Since January 1st, I've had 2,837 page views for my home page, and 2,779 for the mapper. Some days more people look at the mapper than my home page!
