20240119 Explorers’ Emporium’s Next Evolution

Explorers’ Emporium is now in the process of evolving into its next business format. We shall be involved in creating fun and educational social media content. The new facility will also be designed to assist others in doing podcasts and recording projects. This with our retail store, our digital content, and special events shall make us a delightful adventure for everyone.

Back in 1989, when we first started doing our first educational programs and raising funds to build our first children’s museum- We have striven to be up-to-date with our technologies and information. In this fast paced world, it is important to be ready to adapt and grow. Today, we have an opportunity to develop and deliver more than ever.

Once our current building has been sold, there will be a period of down time, as we acquire the land and build the new building. The store and most services will still be available, once we reopen. But, we shall also be providing state of the art green rooms and recording studios. If all goes well, we have other amazing concepts, too; but, we don’t want to give them away… yet.

Keep following us here and on FACEBOOK; and, be sure to subscribe to our YouTube page.

Yes, Explorers Emporium is Moving

Moving 2

ADVENTURERS!!! Yes, EXPLORERS EMPORIUM is still open at 306 S Ironwood Dr, Apache Junction, AZ 85142. Yes, Explorers Emporium is selling its current building and hoping to make a FANTASTIC opportunity. Family care issues have affected our ability to be open consistently; and, the possibility of being closed, randomly, does occur. This, of course, creates confusion for our delightful visitors. And, we suffer a loss of income when hospital stays are required. We are hoping to keep everyone up to date. Please follow this BLOG page to keep informed. Also, we shall post regular updates on FACEBOOK- follow us at:

Advantages of Map Packs

ADVENTURERS!!! We hope you are finding the Digital Download website useful. Is having the ability to download rooms, corridors and maps for use in your RPG games helpful? Yes, absolutely. It is funny…. Forty years ago, many of us DM’s and GM’s had to craft our own tiles and rooms. I, personally, used to take white paper with a straight edge ruler and draw corridors, make 1 inch squares, or whatever. Then, I would go down to the local ice cream/Thrifty store with a bunch of quarters, then use there copy machine to make more. With all this new map software, things have gotten much better. As we have mentioned, we do use Arkenforge for many of the designs.

I do enjoy creating dungeons and maps using software. I found myself re-creating the Mad Mage dungeon with all its layers. But as I finished, I came to the conclusion that I missed just placing tiles down. Most of the prep was pretty much eliminated. I no longer had to worry about the software wanting to do an update or perhaps having a glitch or asset disappear. Laying down tiles automatically creates the Fog of War affect. The players still had a fabulous time. And, with our map packs, if I need a bunch of corridors- I just had to print them. Easy.
