Map Deck 2: Mines

Selected Option:

Map Decks are themed sets of map tiles designed to be used in your “Four Against Darkness” games. Draw cards from these decks to create a random map to explore.

How to play

To start, shuffle your map deck and draw a card. Room “1” is the Entrance. Place an “E” token there. Place “?”(unvisited) tokens on the rest of the card's rooms.

Decide on your party’s path. If a character enters a room with an icon or crosses one, apply its effect (see Map Icons). You can use the icons or ignore them. Remove “?” tokens from rooms you visit.

When you decide to leave the card through one of the four exits, draw another card and place it adjacent (horizontally or vertically). Place “?” tokens on all unvisited rooms. When you move to another card, you enter another room.

When the 5th card is placed, a medium-sized dungeon ends, and all unvisited exits become dead-ends. Your dungeon can be as long as you want, but when you run out of cards, the dungeon ends anyway.

Fully compatible with all Four Against Darkness books and card products.

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.
