[SquareHex] Dungeon Desk Pad Kickstarter Campaign

By on 16 February 2015

The latest Kickstarter campaign, from SquareHex, for the Dungeon Desk Pad is up and running. The aim of this project is to fund a professional print run of Dungeon Desk Pads. The pads are designed as an aid to creating adventures for tabletop roleplaying games.

The sheets in the pads are A3-sized and feature a 34×34 6mm grid for mapping, flanked by two large columns for notes. Beneath the grid, are three smaller columns ideal for writing lists, tables or additional notes. Above the grid there is space for a title and byline and a key for multi-part maps. The key has a 6×4 grid of boxes which may be shaded to show how the map on the sheet relates to neighbouring maps on other sheets.

Like the rest of the Squarehex range, the sheets will be litho-printed in Pantone Cool Grey 5. The line weight of the grid lines is 0.2mm which, combined with the printing method and ink colour, give a much better result than is possible on sheets produced on an inkjet or laser printer. The pads have 24 sheets of 80gsm paper glued along the top edge to a card backboard.

There are several stretch goals ready and waiting for the campaign that will enhance the quality (and possibly the number if sheets if things really get going) of the pads.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
