About Living Realms

Welcome fellow Game Masters, Story Tellers and World Builders to Living Realms! Massive thanks for checking out my page!

    Here you will find my collection of custom made animated maps. These maps are used in tabletop RPG games such as Dungeons & Dragons using a TV or VTT such as Foundery VTT. I aim to provide the RPG tabletop community with realistic and magical maps that help tell your stories and help immerse your players by bringing the playing field to life! Heavy focus on quality over quantity.

   Starting as of January 2021 all future releases will include VTT (Roll20) friendly versions of all maps / content. Also, Animated Tokens will be a regular Map-Pack bonus.

Don't forget to check out my YouTube page, I post demos of a large majority of my releases there.

    I’m Nathan Davis - a technology loving computer geek, avid gamer, Graphic Designer, 3D Artist, Husband, Father of one son and four beautiful girls (God help me). 3D art and game development has been a passionate hobby of mine for the past 17 years.

   Bringing two of my favorite hobbies together - map making and D&D - has been nothing but a joy to work on! I hope you enjoy my hard labor of love as much as I do and use it to bring your game sessions to life. Thank you for any support given that will keep me creating and providing awesome maps to the tabletop RPG community!


How do I use the maps?
  • The majority of people use a TV (what I recommend) by laying it flat on its back, using the screen as the playing table. You can protect the screen with a thin piece of plexiglass cut to fit your TV screen size.
  • Another option is to use a HD projector to project the maps down on to your table.
What size TV is the grid maps scaled for?
  • D6 Tier 1" grid overlay is scaled for 43" TVs.
  • D8 Tier has 1" grid overlay scaled for 40" & 43" TVs.
  • D10 Tier has 1" grid overlay scaled for 43" & 50" TVs.
What TV do you recommend?
  • I use the TLC 43 Inch 4K Smart Roku TV, but any flat screen TV should work as long as you can lay it flat on its back. If you're currently using a 1080p TV I highly recommend the upgrade to any 4K TV, the image improvement is substantial.
What software do you use to display the maps?
  • I originally just used VLC media player, but recently I made the move to using Foundry VTT because of its token support, map-tile support, and most importantly remote play.
  • There are also a few programs under development for playing animated maps. I can't recommend any of them specifically because I personally do not use them. But a quick search should bring them up.

Goals
178 of 250 patrons
Steampunk Themed Map-pack
  • When I reach 250 patrons I will make multiple Steampunk themed map-packs!
