Greetings adventurer!

Hello! My name is Daniel, and I go by "Axebane" online.  :)

Since I was about 8 years old I have been drawing and doodling on almost any surface I could find. I even got in trouble in school for making pencil drawings on my desk. I was also a shy kid who was often lost in my imagination. Of course, in the beginning my drawings were terrible, I can honestly say that! It took years of practice to create anything even remotely good, but luckily when it came to art I had a ton of patience so I kept at it.

Years later, as a Christmas gift, my parents got me the "Dungeons & Dragons" boxed set (the one from 1991) and I was immediately hooked by the possibilities of tabletop role-playing. I would spend hours drawing dungeon maps on graph paper that were littered with traps and monsters, and of course secret doors and treasure aplenty.

Now, as an adult, I've re-discovered my passion for drawing maps and I really want to spend more time drawing new maps that you can drop right into your campaign. So here I am, asking for your help to fund the creation of brand new maps! Thank you so much, and I hope you find these maps useful.

The maps are free for personal use!

All of these maps (except the monthly full-color maps that are released to patrons 3 months early) are free, so this Patreon is totally optional! If you just want free maps, check out my maps page:  Axebane's Maps

How often are new maps released?

Normally once a week (usually on Monday), but when things get busy I may release less often. Also, please set your "monthly maximum" to only what you can afford. This way, if I have a productive month and release 4 maps, you wont be charged more than expected! (pledges are collected around the 1st of each month)

How big is each map?

Each map will be at least a half-page drawing (8" x 5") and sometimes even bigger. Any maps that are smaller than a half-page will not be considered "paid content" so you will never pay for maps that are smaller than 8" x 5".

What if I need maps for commercial use?

If you would rather download art and maps that can be used personally AND commercially (for publishing your own tabletop RPG, adventures, or DMsGuild products for instance!) I also release stock art packs on DriveThruRPG
