MOON Planetary Display is live!

June 22, 2019

I mentioned this project a couple weeks ago, and now it’s ready.  The Planetary Display Logbook MOON is now live and available on DriveThruRPG for less than a buck.

A false-color map of the Moon. The six hemisphere images from the USGS maps produced from data collected by the Clementine mission in 2002 are transposed into 32 faces of a truncated icosahedron in the Planetary Display Logbook format.

The colors show comparative elevation information (blue areas are the lowest; red areas are the highest).

Usable as a fantastic planet for science fiction game settings, whether as the Earth’s moon, or as a reference for a far-flung alien world.

This could be used as an alien world, with the blue sections used as water, and the higher areas as land.  Or it could certainly be used in a near-space game where a moon map would be useful. Use it as a base to start from, and add further detail to make it your own planet for your own game.
