My Name is Eric. I am a lover of board games, tabletop games, RPGs, etc... I am always looking for a new way to help contribute to and/or take our hobby to the next level.

I am excited that you found our group. You are at the brink of joining an adventure that will lead you to a community of like-minded gamers. 

During a recent session of planning and preparing a one-shot for my daughter’s birthday I was blown away when I stumbled upon my first living/animated map, but I was quickly disappointed because I could only find a very small supply of maps. Only a small hand full of those fit the settings I had planned for. This stuck with me and a few weeks later. I was playing around with some software and figured out a way to create them. I have never gotten over the search and the disappointment I felt when I couldn’t find what I needed. So, I have decided to share my creations with my peers. Join us as we give our imagination life.

All maps both still and animated are rendered in HD (1920×1080) and are designed to loop to keep them on the screen until your adventurers are ready to move on.

I will be aiming to release a new map pack on the 15th and 30th of each month. 

with your support, I will strive to increase the detail of the maps and begin creating more variants for each map.   


Please, select the tier that works best for you and your budget. Every little bit helps make our worlds and dreams become a reality. 

FAQs
Can I recommend settings
, themes or a scene?
I will take any recommendations that come from the community while planning out the maps I create.  At the $5 tier you will get voting ability to help directly select one of the map packs for the following month.  

Can I purchase only the map packs I am interested in?
Not yet, this is something that will be available in the future. The current plan is once we reach the goal I will set up a website with access to older map packs. More details will be provided as we get closer to this becoming a reality.

What is the best way to use these maps?
There are many ways out there from projectors to gaming tables with TVs built into them. I currently have a TV that is built into a portable box (see below). Once you have acquired a screen, you will need some software. QuickTime usually does a good job at keeping the loop moving. I personally use a software designed by a Dynamic Dungeons. But I have also heard d20pro allows for video footage.


Can these be used on Roll20 ?
The stills are able to be used in all programs, but most programs have not allowed animated maps yet.   

What about the grid?
Everybody’s setup is inherently going to be different. If a permanent grid was placed on the maps, it would lead to some having a super tiny or a blown-out grid pattern. D20pro and other programs have the capability to add a custom grid onto any map. This is a much more logical solution as it will allow each user the ability to add a grid size that is custom to their needs.
