Hey,

I like the design of the playmats, however the text is completely MISALIGNED on these playmats ... I want to fix it !

What is the font used for the PLAYMATS - SotM ?

See here:

I don't want to open that file and not quite sure of the font. But most of the base game used Blambot fonts (http://blambot.com/) and since these were designed around that time, probably have the same fonts.

This what I have found:
SENTINEL COMICS - Detective Inc.
SentinelS of the MultiversE - Newsflash
Rook City - Shallow Grave

Character Names - Armor Piercing
Card Titles - Crash Landing
Card Text - Red State Blue State

Specific Heroes:
Absolute Zero Armor Piercing (Italics) / Inhuman (Italics)
Bunker Firefight
Fanatic Armor Piercing
Haka Big Bloke
LegacY Newsflash
Ra Pythia
TACHYON Creator Credits
Tempest Feast of Flesh
Visionary Vaporized
Wraith Deathrattle

No, they probably used Photoshop or InDesign to do that. I used Photoshop to recreate most of the text effects.

On the villain section, there are THREE HITPOINT tracks ?
Why THREE ?
In the VENEGEANCE expansion there is ONE BOSS and four underlings ...
Why not 5 HP tracks ?

Cheers & Thanks

It's for a single villain, with possibly more than 100 hit points.

Is it universal for all expansions ?

On the environment section, there are only Environment DECK and its TRASH.
Do you usually display the ENVIRONMENT ART CARD as third card ?
Is there any third card to be displayed on the environment section ?

Cheers & Thanks

The playmat is intended to be used for all expansions so far, except for the Vengeance villain.

There is no Environment Art Card, unfortunately. The back of the Environment decks are pretty colorful and distinctive, though.

Each column is a single digit in the number.

Put three tokens, one on the 1 in the first column, the 2 in the second column, and the 3 in the third column?

Enhanced Edition comes with tokens. Otherwise you can just use coins or some other marker. The playmat does not come with the game though. It really isn't needed any way.

I honestly don't know how that playmat is at all useful for anybody that doesn't have a table that's exactly the right size. My primary gaming table at home is square. So at most 3 people would be comfortable using the mat, the other two would have to sit on the table to use it.

I think it was just used as a demo set-up at conventions. People probably wanted it to so they made available.

Yup. That's exactly what happened. They did not initially intend to sell the playmats, but then people started asking to buy them.
