Sandboxigons Map Template

Don't settle for hexagons. This node crawl template uses octagons instead so that you can connect neighboring zones with all points of the compass. Get your free sandboxigon template here: (links to PDF download).

  1. I admit to being a bit slow, but what are the numbers on the faces of the boxigons supposed to represent? For example, box 1 has: 8, 4, 16, 13, 14

  2. If you're making an atlas, those numbers tell you what numbered square you'd end up in on an adjacent map. So if you traveled north from square 1, you'd end up on square 13 of the next map.

  3. I like this, and seem to recall a similar schematic for organizing city neighborhoods in one of the BECMI "Blackmoor Adventures" modules.

  4. This is a great idea and I love how you made it with the octagons sort of look less than perfect, looks great!

    1. Adobe Illustrator has some nice tools for giving polygons a hand-drawn, informal look. Makes it a bit less rigid, little more casual.
