Map to Globe and a Mythoard Review
I stumbled across this handy web application that freely turns images into a globe. https://www.maptoglobe.com/
Best part? You can also create an animated spinning globe gif. Follow this link to see the spinning globe gif (~20Mb file size)
I was surprised to find that this month’s package had some good heft to it. Despite missing out on this month’s encounter card due to printing issues (it will be added to the next month’s package), this month is filled to the brim with solid goods, except for the Dungeoneer magazine. The Dungeoneer held an intriguing and lengthy article about magazine coloration and design, that despite its instructive qualities is sadly out of date.
Black Pudding #1 is a zine filled with a collection of classes, magic items, and miscellany for BX/LL with just the right blend of fun, sexy, and eccentric ink art perfectly suited to its creative page-layouts.
A woodland encounter logging camp with a dark twist that has no clean answers. Despite the limited space available to describe the logging camp, the half page sets everything up that I could easily run the various characters and monsters. The motivations of the various parties are both intuitive and unique, making me confident I can drop this right into a game with no preparations.
A dual monster & encounter book with both Pathfinder and Swords & Wizardry stat blocks. Each page holds a custom monster with a basic encounter where that monster plays a role. The art is fantastic, the layout isn’t the a creative masterpiece but it is easy to read and the relevant information is easy to access with just a glance at the page. The binding seems sturdy, the pages are a lighter, thinner paper, and the hardcover bears only a simple logo. An excellent inclusion of monsters that are some simple math away from conversion to my 5e table.
All in all, this Mythoard was a solid gold month and everything but the magazine will make it to my game table.
