When Wizards of the Coast says they're going to do something, they usually do it. (Then again they've strangled a few game lines and supplements in the cradle, too.) In this case it's nice to see they've at least kept up one of their lines long enough to produce the promised next installment in their Dungeon Tiles line. Arcane Corridors offers a mystic bent in its selection.
As before, it's six panels of punch-out tiles, sized perfectly for your Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game or its sister miniatures line. Those panels spill forth 38 tiles of varying sizes that can be configured several ways to make maps for exploration or perhaps even combat. The wraparound advertising sheath has a few suggested layouts inside, and you can go to the company website for many others . . .
