Deven Rue Cartography

You might have seen my work on Critical Role, WotC, Roll20, D&D Beyond, The Triangle Table, Nerdolopedia, Godsfall and more.  I make fantasy maps...highly detailed fantasy maps.  I spend the majority of my time creating maps.  I'm sort of obsessed but you'll find that out soon enough if you haven't done so already.  But let's get to the meat of this Patreon thingy, shall we?

SUPPORTING MY PATREON AND OUR COMMUNITY

My patrons' monthly pledges make it possible for me to offer the black/white & parchment versions of my maps free for everyone in the gaming community to download and use in their home games!

Each regional/world I make takes 2-6 weeks depending on the level of detail.

Let that sink in a moment. That means if you were to commission me directly to make a map, you would be paying me 2-6 weeks of a salary. That's a LOT of money!  But then... my maps have a LOT of detail and are time consuming to make.  So instead, we're all helping each other not only get our own worlds commissioned but maps for those who haven't created their own or are inspired to use one I've already made!  We're encouraging more DMs to pick up a game and inspiring them with our worlds. 

But no, I don't mass produce art. You'll see a new piece from me at least once a month *maybe* twice a month if we're lucky but generally it's slow going.  But the great thing is, we're slowly amassing a library of maps that everyone can use.  If you're here expecting to see a ton of maps being made, I'm sad to say you'll be disappointed.


WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU PLEDGE!

When you pledge to my Patreon, you're getting access to my entire body of work thus far (minus work created under IP copyright such as for Critical Role or WotC)!  Every map available for download for personal use. 

You also get discounts to shops like Tabletop Loot and Cantrip Candles as well as my own website!

Want to make your own maps?

I've got cartography classes available!  Pledge to the right, find the links above!  The course covers a wide variety of subjects regarding earth sciences, landscapes, drawing on paper, coloring with Copic markers, resources, digital map creating, and MUCH more! Read articles and watch videos at your leisure or join our ongoing cartography discussion on Discord. New articles are being added often!
