What is Saga World Builder

Saga World Builder is a system for creating pen and paper roleplaying maps featuring modular map tiles, hundreds of environmental objects, magic items, weapons and decoration. We have developed Saga with you in mind! From gamers for gamers. All design elements are hand-painted and highly modular. And due to Saga's engaging old school illustration style, it is super easy to add your own ideas and designs to your Saga maps!

What happened to Saga World Builder

Saga World Builder had a very successful Kickstarter campaign in which almost four thousand people raised over three hundred thousand euros for the project. But unfortunately later, due to production problems, we unfortunately had to cancel Saga World Builder.

Production problems that led to major quality problems forced us to produce the project a second and later a third time. Additionally, the Corona pandemic then came, so that we finally had to admit defeat. See a short history of our miss-lucked attempts here.

So what happens now to my pledge amount?

In order not to leave our community empty-handed, we have launched a large-scale refund campaign since february 2020. Saga is paying a 100% refund. Consisting of 50% in cash (as a bank or PayPal transfer). As well as 50% voucher for products (digital and physical). All amounts based on the amount that we received from Kickstarter (that is what you paid less payment costs and less Kickstarter fees). To apply for a refund you need to fill out the refund form →

What will happen next?

Right now we are in the process of refunding the remained budget to our Backers.

But our team is also working on both a relaunch of the physical Saga World Builder tile set, as well as on a digital Saga system. More to come soon...

Why are you developing a digital product?

We have been thinking a while about 8 by 8 inch tiles. 8 by 8 inch tiles work a bit different than the 6 by 6 and 3 by 6 inch tiles of Saga World Builder. Using 8 by 8 tiles has new design implications but this format is great for printing on standard formats –and it is super easy to just cut off a stripe of the sheet and obtain a square tile.

This new 8 by 8 system has inspired us to start an additional digital journey. Print-it-yourself tiles give us a much higher grade of design freedom. As we are not faced with any real-life limitations. And we can design as many digital print-it-yourself tiles as we want without thinking about paperweight or other limitations. Also, the 'design responsibility' is lower as the results are 'only' JPG files –not ten thousands physical tiles. The sheets have no side B. And no connectors.

And Saga Print Out Sheets are Instant  - no production - no need to wait - no shipping - just download, print and start playing!

For all these reasons we are starting our digital journey now offering an immense variety of print out tiles to let Saga fans print out their own tiles and design enormous and stunning RPG environments!

Can I download a sample of Saga Print Out Sheets to see how I like them?

Yes, of course. You can download this sheet.
By the way, all Saga Print Out Sheets come in both formats: A4 and US Letter.

What is the difference between Saga World Builder and Saga Print Out Sheets?

Saga World Builder is a Kickstarter funded real-life project featuring physical, high-quality game tiles.

Saga Print Out Sheets are digital.
So no physical tiles. And you print them out with your printer.

Another difference between Saga World Builder and Saga Print Out Sheets is that the physical tiles are 6 by 6 and 3 by 6 inch and the digital Saga Print Out Sheets are 8 by 8 inch.
