Heroic Maps – Ships: The Auspice
Heroic Maps takes you to sea with their The Auspice miniature gaming mat. Dungeon maps are pretty common. As are cemeteries and even forests. But you don’t see all that many ships. This pack contains multiple decks, allowing your adventuring group or skirmish forces to fight above and below decks. The pdf is less than $4. Seems a small price for high seas adventure.
From the release:
A printable rpg battlemap compatible with any RPG/Dungeon-Crawl or skirmish game. Use as a standalone gameboard, or combine with any same-scale tileset. Each deck (and surrounding water) occupy approximately 10×22 squares.
Contents: A carrack-style sailing ship. The top deck is shown both with interior and exterior views of the forecastle and aftcastle. The aftcastle includes the Captain’s Quarters and stairs down to the lower deck. This deck has a mess room for officers and a large area for sailors. Below this is the hold, a dark area with barrels, crates and other stores.
Uses: Take your adventure across the sea, evading (or even becoming) pirates. Fend off sharks and sea creatures, seeking new lands and new treasures. The ship could even be in dock, and your party needs to sneak on board and stowaway without being noticed.
300dpi A4 pdf, with gridded map spread across 20 pages for easy printing.

A note on VTT use – we have deliberately kept the quality of the file high, and you may need to resize the jpeg for use in your VTT software. Keeping the file size and resolution high gives you the flexibility to use the map how you want – crop out a particular section or use the entire map, the choice is yours.
