The T-Builder line uses PDF layers and form controls to let you lay various bits on top of a basic background. It’s a little bit like using Dundjinni, only much more constrained. The Undead Haunt pack lets you place various kinds of flooring, furnishings, blood splatters, and so on over a basic ground texture that looks like gray dirt with a light covering of gray grass. You can also fill in the whole area with a decorated tile floor, but you’ll have to click 36 or 72 times to make it happen; there really ought to be an option to lay down all of these things at once. The system is not difficult to use once you get the hang of it, but it’s slow and cumbersome even for a skilled user. The results are serviceable, but not nearly as nice as those produced by an artist creating a specific tile. Still, the ability to customize is welcome, and it’s kind of fun to play with. The instructions try to help users master the T-Builder system, but the English composition/translation is occasionally very poor. You can’t save your work; this is not the publisher’s fault (and the publisher warns about this in the instructions, even highlighting the statement in red), but it does highlight the inherent limitations of publishing such a tool as a PDF. (Yes, this review is basically the same as for all the other T-Builder packs, because they’re pretty much all the same except for the artwork.)

A very easy method of creating quick maps for RPGs that use miniatures. One drawback is that the maps cannot be saved for future use (though anyone familiar with print-to-PDF utilities should be able to work around this).

Overall, this is a reasonably priced tool for making quick custom miniature maps.
