About Jared Blando

I am back from Hiatus after a few months and am transitioning to new Patron Tiers and Benefits during the month of June! Please bear with me as I roll out new features and get into the swing of things!

Hey! I'm Jared Blando, and welcome to my Patreon page!  

I make "Paths of Adventure", essentially complete side quests that consist of a Map, DM Notes, Unique Creatures/Characters, and Items that come as a complete little package! These adventures can be incorporated into your main campaign, or can be inserted as side quests for your PCs to explore. My DM Notes are the heart of the Paths, and explaining the map in great detail, including locations, secrets, creature encounters, items, traps, and excerpts you can read to your players. The notes are also full of open - ended ideas and Adventure seeds for you to riff of and really bring these mysterious locations to life! 

Join the company and get access to the latest Path of Adventure! Each map is voted on, beautifully rendered, written, and ready to be played with immediately. Depending on your tier level, several versions of the same map can be included, including a Foundry Prepared Version complete with walls, dynamic lighting, Journal entries and added Creatures/Actors. Distributed through Moullinette, these are a breeze to get up and running! The higher your tier, the more versions of the map are included, including Alternate Versions such as Night, Rain, Fog, etc. along with other benefits and perks. In addition, I do Creature cards with unique stat blocks and illustrations.

I also offer a Commercial License Tier for those creators who are looking to incorporate my maps/tokens into their own commercial publications!

Please check out my Tier levels for breakdown of benefits.

Join in the discussion, voting process, and the rewards of being apart of the Red Company! Each map is perfect for use in the various VTT tabletops available, or go and print them out for tabletop use!


To be clear, you get access to the latest released Path of Adventure and the newest Map updates, not all maps in my collection. Previous maps may be accessed depending on your tier level, though most are archived and are available for purchase off of my website. I release one Path of Adventure Map per month.




How it Works

At the first of each month, I have a Council of War Map vote post. I put up three Map Ideas that can be be voted on by the company. Every patron gets a single vote, wit the winning entry being decided on the 3rd of each month at noon. Over the course of the next few weeks, I post updates on the map's progress as I work on it. Once completed, I post the respective a Map Finish Posts, which contains dropbox links to the Patron's Tier Benefits! I periodically release new maps and update my Patrons with progress reports thorughout the month.

My Goal
As a Patreon creator, I paint up poster size encounter maps of various adventure locations that serve as play maps for online use. DM Version maps have easter eggs, mysteries, notes, and are essential mini adventures. The maps also have plenty of adventure seeds, so GMs can fit the map into their campaign as they see fit.
Telling a good story requires a bit of mystery and intrigue, which helps draw players in. An encounter map filled with subtle drama, unknown and mysterious glyphs, and with a look as though it was scribed by someone who may be of that time and place can lift players into the game, not to mention leading to unscripted side quests.

Who am I?
I've been a professional Illustrator in the RPG/gaming/publishing industry for 16 years and still going strong. It's been my job to create maps that are both inspirational and functional in some of the most iconic games on the market, including Pathfinder, Dungeons and Dragons, as well as a host of other products. Maps are fun and potent tools for creating atmosphere both in real life and on the gaming table.

Join my trusty band of sellswords, the Red Company, and go forth to victory!
