The Trove

This.

Place.

is.

Ridiculous!

Their words; “The Trove is a non-profit website dedicated towards content archival and long-term preservation of RPGs.
We currently host various large scale collections amounting to hundreds of thousands of files. These collections include various image, ebook and software archives. As of right now, The Trove hosts 908GB of data.”

I can’t over emphasize how spacious this place is and its not just D&D, its got Dungeon Crawl Classics, Dungeon World, Starfinder, Pathfinder, World of Darkness, Sword & Sorcery, Warhammer and a ton more. Its kind of nuts. Its not just manuals, its comics, novels, programs, board games, maps, magazines(Dragon, Dungeon, Polyhedron, Games Workshop, , on and on and on.

I can’t speak enough about this place and its just best you go explore it yourself. Its like when you first discovered comics and you step into one of the biggest comic books stores for your first time. Eyes in bewilderment.

I recommend Dungeon #100 and Polyhedron #159 for some light level 18 adventure reading and say if you happen to want to hunt something on the Beastlands. I also recommend Sailors of the Starless Sea for DCC.

They also have a nice little repository for the One Page Dungeon contest over here. The One Page Dungeon Contest is actually a pretty sweet little contest in its own rights and you should check them out along side the rest of this pile of heaping excitement. It does also have maps, animated & 3D printable stuff

I do also want to mention that all these things are copyright their respective owners and that if you do truly enjoy them and get some use out of them or plan to get more use out of them than maybe you think, pitch a few dollars their way. Without these amazing people there would be no content here to be excited about, literally. These people are the makers of some pretty fantastic things.

My personal take is its fine to rent a movie to see if you like it. If you want to watch it again, maybe think about buying it since you like it enough to see twice.

Wizards Art & Map Archive

Don’t we all consider ourselves wizards of some kind or another? Aren’t we all at least some what attracted to dusting off those old forgotten tomes and cracking that spine to see whats held inside?

Well, I happened to find this nice little find over at Wizards. Its the Art & Map Gallery Archive and I have to say, its beautiful man. You just don’t see some of this stuff anymore.

You’ve got maps from as old as City of the Spider Queen (2002) and maps from the Draconomicon (2003). Maps from Eberron, Red Hand of Doom(which are great maps), Drow of the Underdark … I could go on, just go there and look.

The artwork which is above the maps is just a treasure trove of good old art. You just have to go through there and take a look around. I found the symbols of the gods pretty cool and I won’t lie man, there are some pretty sweet pieces in there you could use as tokens on roll20 and they are legit from Wizard. So thats like double plus good in my book. Enjoy. =)
