About Milby's Maps

My name is Matt Milby and I make maps.  I've been playing D&D and other roleplaying games since I was about 14 and I've been drawing for as long as I can remember.  Most of my roleplaying experience is as a DM (I'm one of those guys that was born behind the screen). 

All my maps are hand-drawn and available for free on my website.  Your support keeps a pen in my hand for as many hours a week as possible.  That's what this is all about.  There are entire worlds in my imagination and I want to take you there.  Being able to spend more time drawing means we can go to bigger, crazier, more beautiful places.  Not everyone can afford to be a patron, but if you're one of those that can, I'd be honored to have your support. Take a look at what I've done and decide if I've earned it.  Some of my most popular maps are the Dwarven City of BrazenthroneNeuschwanstein CastleFinbarr's Marsh and Tortuga.  Huge projects like those are something I spend a lot of my time on.  If you have any questions, feel free to send me an email at [email protected].

Here are some examples of my annotated maps and DM notes. Most of my maps have annotated versions and DM notes for patrons. All maps have high-res VTT and print versions available, including a version specially made to print with a 1-inch per tile grid. The VTT maps are compatible with all platforms.

In addition, there are modules for Foundry and EncounterPlus, which include almost all of my maps (with the exception of a few old ones). These have the walls and doors set up for dynamic lighting.

For Roll20 users, there are wall commands included with the VTT packs for all newer maps. These commands work with the UniversalVTTImporter script to draw in the dynamic lighting walls for you. The link describes how to use the commands, although you only have to do steps 6 and 7. These are included with all maps made from 12/2020 onward, as well as for all Brazenthrone maps.

One last thing to mention: Some patreon creators charge supporters immediately after joining. I don't do this because I don't want anyone signing up on the 29th and getting charged twice what they expected. You will not be charged anything unless you are still a patron on the first of the month.
Goals
$700 - reached! per month
OPENING THE BOOKS - If we reach this goal, I will open my Book of Ideas, present 40-50 options and allow patrons to choose 10 of them in several rounds of voting. Those will be the next ten maps I draw (aside from Brazenthrone and the Cartographic Congress maps, which will continue).
