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

Are you aching for new large encounter maps to throw at your Adventurers? Want ambushes, fallen keeps, sunken cities, and dangerous dungeons? Look no further!

Enjoy massive 30" x 24" 1" grid encounter maps that are beautifully rendered and ready to be played with immediately. Join in the discussion, voting process, and the rewards of being apart of the Red Company! Each map is perfect for use in Roll20 the various VTT tabletops available, or go and print them out for table use! 

All map files come in two forms:
  • 1 HQ 24 x 30" Jpeg
  • 1 Roll20 VTT Jpeg (under 5 megabytes for easy uploading!)

Additional Benefits!

In addition to the standard HQ Map release file, the higher your rank the more things you will receive! From DM's notes and Oldschool ink versions of the maps, to access to previous Red Company map releases. At the highest tier, you can submit your very own map ideas that can be turned into a finished piece! Join the ranks of the Red Company today and start adventuring!

How it Works!
Every Map Selection I put up a post with 4 Map Ideas. Patrons then cast a number of votes on these ideas depending on what rank they are by commenting on the Map Selection Post. The higher the rank, the more votes a Patron gets. Once the voting cycles ends, the votes are tallied and the new Encounter Map is selected. Over the course of a few days, I post updates on the maps progress as I work on it. Once completed, I post a Map Finish Post, which has the Encounter Map file as an Attachment which can downloaded and used by Patrons! 

My Goal!
As a Patreon creator, I paint up poster size encounter maps of various Community voted Dungeons and encounter areas that serve as play maps for online use. The Maps also have plenty of adventure seeds, so GMs can fit the map into their campaign as they see fit. Each map has Easter eggs, little mysteries, notes and such that can all be interpreted however a GM would like.

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 12 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.

With your support we will build worlds together! Join the Red Company today!
