Hey folks:

I just launched a Kickstarter funding drive to pay for the print run of my next sci-fi miniatures-scale poster map. Those who pre-order the maps by making a pledge will get free shipping of their poster(s) when they come back from the printer, and there are some other cool rewards for those who pledge at higher levels. Check it out:

If you know anyone that would be interested in this sort of thing, please pass along the link and help me spread the word about this project. These are the maps that will appear on the front and back:

Well, I have no use for a scifi map, but I gotta say, this is an extremely awesome map. I really like it.

that looks really cool - don't play any sci-fi myself either but kudos for a good map :)

Thanks, Rob A! We're now 81% of the way to the funding goal, with 12 days left! If you folks know anyone who would be interested in this sci-fi poster map, please spread the word! I'd really like to get it into print. :)

There are only two hours left in this funding drive, and pre-orders have been really strong! We met the funding goal 10 days early, and are almost $1500 above that goal now. The support for this project has been remarkably gratifying and wonderful; huge thanks to any of you who have pledged your support with a pre-order! I look forward to sending you your poster(s).

I'm pleased to announce that the maps have been printed, and packaged, and sent out to all backers! The posters are now listed for sale at my website (www.mapsofmastery.com), and project backers will be receiving their copies in the mail starting today or tomorrow.

Huge thanks to those in this community who supported the project! I'm grateful to all who helped get the word out, and honored to be in such good company.

Sure! Most of the backers heard about it through the Star Wars Miniatures and RPG-playing community, notably at www.wizards.com, www.swmgamers.com, and www.d20radio.com.

I've got another one started now, at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mapmaker/forsaken-lands-ii-poster-map
This poster is designed to be at home in a fantasy game as well as sci-fi, so it may be of more interest to members of this community! :)
