About


Hello and Welcome to FableKit!

FableKit is an ongoing service dedicated to creating immersive, versatile and highly replayable maps for fantasy RPGs like DnD 5e and Pathfinder.

You can either plug & play using prebuilt maps or build-your-own from a combination of base maps, rooms and prop tokens.




FAQ
Who am I?

Hi I'm Sam! I'm a father, husband and artist living in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. For the last eight years I've been a production artist in the video games industry. Over the course of my career I've worked on games for companies like Nickelodeon, Disney and LEGO. Now I want to use what I've learned toward my dream of creating an immersive and expansive fantasy world setting for Tabletop RPG creators and players.


What is FableKit?

FableKit is an ongoing service dedicated to creating immersive, versatile and highly replayable maps and token libraries for fantasy role playing games like Dungeons and Dragons and Pathfinder. The maps and props are designed from the outset to be remix-able and re-playable. Over time members will amass a versatile collection of maps and tokens that they can use to create their own worlds. It is my hope that with your support we can build a deep and varied pool of fantasy resources that will allow you to craft more immersive stories for your players, in less time and with less frustration.

Which Kit is right for me? 

Plug & Play kits are for GMs that want something quick, easy and game ready. They feature preconfigured HiRes maps in gridded, gridless and propless formats. For added replayability they also come in daytime, night-time, and variant formats so that you can revisit the same area with a very different mood and feel.

Creator kits are for GMs that want to craft their own maps in which to tell their stories. In addition to all the Plug & Play rewards, members at this tier will have access to all the component pieces used to create the maps themselves. This includes the bare basemaps with the buildings, terrain and props tokens seperated into files folders for you to remix and reassemble in any way you like.


How much does it cost to be a member?

Currently I charge per creation, once or twice a month. That means it will cost you $5-$10 a month to be a Creator patron. If you feel that’s too much, you can set a limit. e.g. a 5 dollar cap for your support. You can read more about limits here.

You can cancel your support at any time. 

What formats do the files come in?

All rewards are either JPG or PNG image files and are optimized for digital platforms.

All images have been  named and seperated into file folders for easy access and importing into your preferred virtual tabletop client or image editing software.

What scale are these configured for?

One map square is equal to  140 pixels, 1" and 5ft of fantasy world space.

Assets come with the unit scale indicated in their filename.

eg. Sample_Map_Day_22x24.jpg means that the map is 22 units wide by 24 units tall or 3080 pixels (22x140px) wide by 3360 pixels (24x140px) tall or 22" by 24" printed out.

If you are overlaying your own grid please configure it to work on a 140 pixel grid. For Roll20 grid configuration please look  here

How can I print these maps?

For print ready files please download the zip folder with the suffix "_PRINT" attached to the reward tier you are subscribed to. This will contain print ready files for the map(s) and tokens included in the post (tokens available in creator tier only).

Simply open the image file in the free PDF reader Adobe Acrobat Reader, then go to File>Print. Then under the Page Sizing and Handling select 'Poster' then click the Print button.

Warning: These maps are designed for virtual tabletop and can get very large when printed so, depending on your printer, some maps may use a lot of ink and paper. Printing out individual rooms and placing them together to make smaller dungeons might be more economical than printing out larger maps for those printing at home.
