Dungeon Tiles: Graystone: 10″ Square (9) , 5″ Square (36), & Combo Pack from Role 4 Initiative
Not only do these tiles provide a more realistic stone floor appearance, they are accented with various dungeon floor features that include broken stones, moss, water, blood, and dirt that add character to your dungeon maps. R4I has taken the realistic visual effects even further by implementing a “hidden grid” by rendering a floor of varied size and shape stone tiles, yet still leaving a subtle representation of the traditional 1″ grid.
Dungeon Tiles: Earthtone: 10″ Square (9) , 5″ Square (36), & Combo Pack from Role 4 Initiative
Make your game’s arid setting come to life with a realistic dry earth texture — perfect for indoor or outdoor adventures in any rule system.
10″ Dry Erase Interlk Dungeon Tiles (9) from Role 4 Initiative
This package of Role 4 Initiative Dungeon Tiles contains nine 10-inch tiles that interlock like puzzle pieces.
All of the the Dungeon Tiles are compatible with both dry-erase and wet-erase markers. More flexible than a traditional battle mat, start your game with a single tile and connect the tiles as the adventurers explore new areas. Never again give away clues as to which way the corridors may lead due to starting placement on a large mat. The interlocking tile modularity allows the Dungeon Master to draw many details of an area at his seat and then simply hand the tile to the nearest player to connect. Take advantage of the double-side feature by pre-drawing map features before the game and only revealing tiles as they are encountered. You can draw one side as it appears naturally, and the other side that shows all the hidden traps and magic features when they are triggered.
