Tropical Island Sandbox

VTT Map Pack with System-Neutral Setting and Five-Encounter Mini-Adventure

This addon map pack for Roll20 VTT includes five richly illustrated encounter maps, one regional exploration map, and a page full of themed tokens depicting the tropical setting of Malady Island. The maps feature artistically incorporated gridlines in areas where players are likely to traverse, reminiscent of the commercially printed battlemaps used in in-person tabletop games. The tokens include a variety of creatures like giant insects, spiders, and lizards, along with objects such as thatched-roof huts, a campfire, wooden canoes, a fallen log, spiderwebs, a stone circle, and a fish-drying rack. Where applicable, the maps include line-of-sight barriers for dynamic lighting.

The Maps

  • Malady Island (22x20 regional map)

  • Cuttlefish Cove (38x35 encounter map)

  • Chasm Crossing (26x29 encounter map)

Setting & Encounters

Besides the artwork, Tropical Island Sandbox features a neatly organized library of system-neutral journal entries describing Malady Island and its inhabitants, including members of a malign cult who worship an evil spirit at an obsidian shrine in the shape of a colossal spider. The library also includes five encounters, one for each encounter map. Taken as a whole, the encounters form a mini-adventure called The Shrine of the Obsidian Spider. Additional journal entries include exploration guidelines, magic items, random tables for boons and banes (hazards), plus a list of adventure hooks to get your players to the island. For your convenience, there is a second instance of each encounter map, pre-populated with tokens and notes corresponding to the included encounters.

All of the written content is system-agnostic, geared toward d20-based game systems, and can be scaled for PCs of varying levels. Stat blocks for specific game systems are not included. Instead, the relevant journal entries steer you in the right direction for stats or help you determine them on the fly. To assist with scalability, a basic system for setting difficulty levels for your PCs' current power level is also included.

Product Information

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
