I’m also not a big fan of Heroquesting, I prefer a gritty Runequest Glorantha campaign with Heroquesting being rare and trippy. Might not be in line with where Moon Design is going, but that is how I and my group play. I really look forward to Adventures in Glorantha.
But I do support and buy Heroquest and other products because they bring the excellent Glorantha world and myth forward.September 7, 2014 at 7:46 am #10745
I told you what you want because a layered pdf is just a weak imitation of a map viewer with layer administration and clickable maps that give you information on whatever clickable feature you choose. And which you could add content to, like your campaign trail.
You are wrong, and stop telling other people what they want.
It’s about getting the best out of the format the books are in, which is PDF and nothing else. A layered PDF where you could choose to hide the hexgrid (which I’m not a fan of) would have been awesome. And I believe the hexgrid is in fact it’s own layer in Photoshop if the maps are in bitmap, so it would be possible to use even if they where bitmaps.
If nothing else, I hope we can get two versions of the AAA PDF, one without the hexgrid.September 4, 2014 at 8:21 pm #10702
You don’t really want a pdf where you can switch layers on or off, what you want is a clickable and somewhat zoomable map where you can do that, without respect to pages for print formats.
Why are you telling me what I want? Layered PDF are awesome for us that like the digital editions in PDF. I really like when you can notice work has gone into the PDF versions too. Don’t get me wrong, I do love printed books too. But I prefer PDF as I can use them when working on adventures etc running a game.
The atlas is merely a companion volume that allows you to locate things in the maps while browsing through the book or the pdf.
Yet the Argan Argar Atlas PDF still costs as much as the Sartar Companion PDF.
Vectorizing the maps is a huge task. I know that Moondesign does not have the manpower to do that, and it would take either volunteers (note the plural) or some serious payment to get this done from the existing bitmap layers.
Yeah, I wrote that in the first post already. If the maps are done in bitmap, I would just like them in higher quality as most maps in the Sartar Campaign Pack PDF for example. That said, the maps in AAA are well suited for vector format.August 30, 2014 at 3:11 pm #10636

Thousand thanks for the generator! It will be extremely useful for me as a future RuneQuest Glorantha game master.June 29, 2014 at 9:18 pm #8290
OK, there’s 2 different ‘Charles’ here now 😀
Changed so it says I’m Charles from Sweden now, no confusion I hope. 🙂June 28, 2014 at 1:53 pm #8259
I don’t think I ordered the maps during the Kickstarter (I bought the rest, though). Apart from the 6-maps pack for Genertela, could you please tell me if there is any other map that can be obtained?
Yes, there are the two map-packages available for pre-order.
They were in the Kickstarter too and there is some info in the FAQ there.
What are the 5 folded Genertela Maps for RUNE LORD/PRIESTS and above?
The Super-detailed Genertela map crafted by Colin Driver is epic. We know some of you would like to get it on a set of 5 (approx. 18″x24″) poster maps for easier use. We will fold them and tuck them into the Guide. Lay them out together on a table and you’ll have a 24″x90″ big view of it. As the number of backers getting these maps increases, so is the possibility that the posters will increase in size as well. These maps will not have hexes on them.
What’s in the 11 inch x 17 inch Poster map set (+$95 add-on)?
This is a set of 24 color poster maps (11 inch X 17 inch) unfolded, rolled up together in a very sturdy mailing tube. These are the Colin Driver and Simon Bray geographical maps, the same ones already in the Main Guide and in the Argan Argar Atlas. We know some people prefer their maps not bound into a book, for easier use on a table, or to hang on the wall. These maps will not have hexes on them. This item will be shipped separately from the books.
I think the Genertela map is the one here just in 6 parts and higher resolution of course.
But I asked just to be sure. (hope my formatting is ok, because I didn’t seem to be able to edit my post).June 28, 2014 at 11:14 am #8249
Regarding the map sets. I got some info from your Kickstarter page about them. I already pre-ordered the set with 24 maps, this will be perfect for gaming sessions maps.
If I understand correct, the 6 Poster Map Set of Genertela is the whole continent split up in 6 big maps? Is it the same map as the pretty large image of Genertela that was posted some time ago?
I would really like a high quality wall map, but was thinking of having one printed locally from a PDF map if it was possible. Is the map going to be available as a high resolution PDF for that type of printing?
