Terrain Corner

It’s a rainy Monday here in Atlanta. I actually love the rain.

Ah well, not everything is perfect in life. But we try where we can. Just like how we try and make our gaming tables look perfect. And that’s what we’re here to help with today.

In the Terrain Corner we have: Adventure Forge 3D Map Maker Up On Kickstarter, Heroic Maps – The Lich’s Lair Now Available, Manorhouse Workshop Forgotten Halls and NoLands Comics at Essen, and Battlefront Offering Free Gaming Mats to Gaming Clubs.
