Hello there! My name is Tim and I'm creating animated maps (videos) for tabletop gaming!  I like to call these animated map creations "Fragments" - as they are beautiful pieces of fantasy worlds, combined with the GM/DM and Player stories to create and flesh out that world as a living and breathing place.

I've been creating maps for the past ~30 years; I remember when I was just a young lad of about 8 getting sheets of grid paper from my older brother, who played D&D with his friends, and spending hours drawing dungeons... laying out meticulous paths and secrets, with traps and denizens strategically placed to give the adventurers a challenging and rewarding adventure!

Through the years I've done a variety of illustration, graphic design, 3D modeling, animation, and game development work, taking great pleasure specifically in the level, world, and map design aspects of that work.  One day last year I had the epiphany that those skills could all be combined to make tabletop video maps to display on a TV laying flat to bring gaming sessions to a new level, and I started down this path.

I'm happy to share my creations with the fabulous tabletop gaming community, as I know from my own experiences that taking your game sessions to the next level is both a great time as a DM/GM, and players reactions are wonderful as you unveil new maps for them to explore!

With support on Patreon it will help cover services for hosting, streaming, software/tool cost, and other features in the future.  It will also assist in expanding my 3D Asset library, to create even better maps and videos in the future!  For anyone that has supported, currently supports, or is considering supporting, I thank you from the bottom of my heart and hope that the maps I create bring great joy to you and your tabletop players!
Tiers
Copper Compass

All Static (image) maps are available for download.  


This includes all static maps released prior to your patronage.


I will also be posting news and updates on Patreon that will be available for you to see.

Silver Sextant
$5 or more per month

At the Silver Sextant tier one animated map set per month will be released open to you to download.  You will be able to download all prior month Silver Sextant tier map sets as well. (A map "set" is a map design with day and night version if available, and the various grid types overlaid; no grid, square grid, and hex grid). 


You will also be able to participate in voting and polls for map themes and ideas when posted.

Adamantium Astrolabe
$10 or more per month

Adamantium Astrolabe tier will provide access to all released animated maps, as well as maps released prior to your patronage.


You will also gain access to my private Vimeo streaming service. This will allow you to quickly spin up a map on your device or smart TV without the need to spend time downloading and moving files around.

Mithril Map
$25 or more per month

The Mithril Map tier is for the folks that really want to support these creative endeavors I'm involved in.  For your wonderful support and caring, I will share with you behind the scenes posts and information on ideas I'm working on related to map design, future technology tabletop possibilities, sneak peeks of upcoming maps, and other fitting subjects related to Atlas Fragments.

Map Legend
$50 or more per month only 10 left

At the ultimate "Map Legend!" tier, *after 4 months of continuous support/patronage ($200 total), I will create a map based on your own request; You pick the theme/setting, the general features you would like to see, and I will make it happen!  I will take some artistic license with the creation, but I will work my hardest to fulfill your desired theme/setting/features/etc.   


This map will be released to the community, either named after you (or a name of your choosing), and if it's a wonderful idea and theme that is a lot of fun making and everyone in the community enjoys, it's possible I may even expand it into a map series.  


You can unlock this reward multiple times, after each 4 months of patronage at the Map Legend level, so 3 maps a year will be crafted to your desires!

Goals
$0 of $256 per month
At $256 a month I will be able to move the website and hosting of map fragments to much better servers, increasing site and download performance.
