Tiamat FAQ

What is Tiamat?

Tiamat is an on-line Tile Mapper ideal for creating maps for role playing and miniature games. Users can build maps using nearly 3000 tiles designed by SkeletonKey Games and export them to the format and scale of their choosing.

How much does it cost?

Tiamat uses a micro transaction model. Tiamat is FREE to use to create maps. Users only pay when they want to export their maps. The cost depends on the type of export. Miniature scale maps also requires that you purchase the tiles used in the map. Once you buy a tile, you own it, and never pay for it again.

What type of Maps can I export?

Right now, you can export an Adventure Map, a smaller scale map for use by players and GMs of a role playing game; and a Miniature Map, a miniature scale map (1" sqaures) designed to be printed and placed on a table for miniature battles. There is also an option to get a zip of Miniature scale tiles to print off along with a build manifest to help you layout the map.

We want to add additional export types. If you have a need for a different type of export, please let us know.

Can I see some examples?

Sure.
Adventure Map (300k)
Miniature Map (6M)
Zip of Tiles (5M)

What if I already own some SkeletonKey Tiles?

If you have purchased tiles from another site such as RPGNow.com, you can use the Tiamat interface to add those tiles to your Tile Library.

I have a suggestion or feature request?

Great! Either post on the forums or email me directly, webmaster@rpgobjects.com.

Can I sell or use my exported map in a commercial product?

No. The maps are for personal use only. If you want to use the map in a commercial product, you need to contact SkeletonKey Games to acquire permission.

I have a tile I modified, can I get it into Tiamat?

Email us the tile and we'll consider adding it to the Library.
