Title: Possible Turning Points/Touring the Stars Maps Print on Demand
Post by: Adrian Gideon on 15 February 2017, 17:04:46
Hey folks, looking into some Print on Demand options at DriveThruRPG, and checking for any interest. Thanks.

I'm confused. Why would the hexes get smaller when you expand the map to take up multiple pages?

Because I bolluxed the poll. :) Thanks for letting me know so quickly, fixed it.

Using the campaign rules in CO I think the size should be large enough to fit either a miniature or the unit counters (didn't see them on the store so not sure of the official name). Reason I voted for 4 page maps.

I voted for the two multi-page options. The large hexes will allow folks to use their existing minis(or the Battlforce counters that were available on the Battleshop, not sure if they're still available) to represent formations, while the 2-page option would allow folks to do the same, using the smaller Battleforce minis. You go too small, you'll have to make your own counters for everything.

I think these are most likely to be printed out out home so I'd like the paper in ISO sizes (A4)

They're already available for printing at home in their respective PDFs, I'm looking into making them available for print on demand, but via DriveThruRPG the only option is 12x18 sheets.

Something else I thought of, does anyone know offhand how much the cost per sheet is? I think that may sway some to the smaller selections if its too expensive. The 4 page option to me is the best choice, but others be basing their decision on price rather than playability.

Is there a platform for suggesting planets to be covered in future publications of the Touring the Stars series?
I would like to respectfully request: Thule
