Valley of the Ancients

Travellers that venture across the blistering sands of the Altok Desert may stumble upon the Valley of the Ancients; a steep-sided canyon riddled with ancient tombs and ruins. What lies below the ground, deep in the tombs, is best left unknown.
Valley of the Ancients is a printable dungeon floorplan compatible with any RPG/Dungeon-Crawl game. Use as a standalone gameboard, or combine with any same-scale tileset.
Contents: A 20x30 battlemap depicting the surface. A dry desert valley, with steep cliffs and ancient Egyptian ruins. Entrances to various tombs lead down from the cliffs. The set also includes 13 tomb battlemaps (of various sizes) which can be used as the rooms below any of the tomb entrances on the surface.

The Discover Range features large surface battlemaps and smaller underground rooms and chambers. When your party discover an entrance to the underground, simply use the underground map of your choice. It can be different every time.


Valley of the Ancients forms a 20 x 30 area, with 13 tomb battlemaps,  and can be printed at 28mm and 25mm scale.


Have you tried these battlemaps?


Go on an adventure!

I purchased this and want to poster print the large surface map with grid at my local print shop. What size does it need to be printed at to get 1" squares?

Ask them to print it at 91% of the original size. Scaling instructions for 1" grids are provided on the first page of the per. Hope that helps

Does this also come with full-size jpgs? This doesn't specify like some of your other products, so I just want to validate before purchasing. Thanks.

Just purchased your Valley of the Ancients map, excited to use it, but I'm having trouble downloading.

When I try to download the PDF, I get this error: "There was an error opening this document. The file is damaged and could not be repaired."

When I try to download the images, I get this error: "unable to expand “” into “Downloads”."

I'll try reaching out to OneBookshelf for help, but as of now the files are totally inaccessible for me.

Original electronic
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.
