Dave's Mapper and Side View Geomorphs

David Millar of Dave's Mapper fame is starting to tackle a back-log of geomorphs. The big news is that he has added side-view geomorph functionality. Look for the "SV" designation under Map Types. I only did a few of these, but it's cool to see a bunch of them linked together. It's especially cool to see them linked together with the awesome side-view tiles of Matt Jackson, Stonewerks, and Dyson.

Thanks for the post! It looks like you may have encountered a glitch though with the author listing, as none of Matt Jackson's tiles are in yet. Rorschachhamster, Shane Knysh, and myself have tiles in that map type though, and Matt Jackson's tiles along with the rest of Stonewerks' tiles will be in the mix soon!

Ah yes, now I see that I was not seeing any of Matt's tiles. I just recalled from memory that I liked them very much.

Been having tons of fun with Dave's Mapper and Scibblar and Paint.

The real trick is to set the map, or section of map, as background on the whiteboard.

The only hitch is that, while the white board will expand for an active drawing, it will set a map as background only in default size.

Scribblar looks nifty! I'm definitely going to add that to my toolset for PbC and PbP games.

Monkey, here's the room I'm using to noodle stuff.

Neato right back at you. I'm thrilled you spent the time and effort to make the geomorphs.

I love the grey smudge effect, it reminds me of the days hand drawn maps, hand written spell lists on notebook paper, and the hard mileage seven neophyte gamers put on two Basic and one Expert rule books split between them.
