Hi! I'm Miska Fredman, and I create fantasy and science-fiction maps for tabletop role-playing games

I've enjoyed making maps for role-playing games ever since I started playing Dungeons & Dragons back in the 80's. I love to draw maps because it's a great way to inspire and evoke imagination. When I create a map, the themes can range from hard sci-fi to high fantasy, but I try to make my creations easy to adapt to a wide variety of genres. 

The Maps and Other Perks

As a subscriber, you will get access to a backlog of over 170 high-resolution RPG maps.

On top of this, you will get around 3 to 5 new beautifully colored and textured high-resolution maps every month. One of the maps is the Map of the Month, which will be a bit more detailed or larger than the rest of the maps.

The maps are published as 300dpi jpeg files. Most of the maps are virtual tabletop ready (or have a separate VTT-ready version) and they come with and without a grid.

Besides the maps, you also gain access to a members-only Patreon discussion and polls, a Facebook group and a Discord server. There are also options for commercial use and editable layered PSD files, and getting hands on any other small publications I might publish as PDFs. 

See the Tier descriptions for more details on the included rewards.

You can support my work by becoming my patron – like a patron of arts of sorts if you will. Your support allows me to devote more time to creating original RPG content and use better tools and materials.

It's up to you how much each of my creations is worth to you. For example, would you buy me a cup of coffee or perhaps a pint of beer for one of my maps?

I'm using the per creation model, so you will be charged for each paid post I release, but you can decide how many creations per month you will support at the most. This way you can manage your budget with ease. Just remember to set the number of supported creations per month when setting up your membership. Also, if I don't happen to release anything during a month, you will not be charged. 

After you have decided to become my patron and want to subscribe to my paid releases on Patreon...
  1. Figure out your monthly budget 
  2. Select a reward tier that fits your needs the best.
  3. Set how many times per month you want to support by dividing your monthly budget by the cost of the selected reward tier. E.g. If your monthly budget is $15  and you select the Adventurer tier at $3, set the monthly maximum to "5 times per month" (15 divided by 3 = 5).
  4. Confirm your pledge and enjoy! Also, join the patron-only discussion here on Patreon and on Discord and Facebook.

Easy! :D

Thank you!

If you want to have some added depth to the maps or save you the trouble of coming up with ideas for the map, this tier is for you. In addition to my honest appreciation for your support, you will get the following rewards:

 

  • All the lower tier rewards
  • Map labels and descriptions – Each map comes with labels and short descriptions of different map locations and/or adventure seeds 
  • Occasional adventures & locations  – Every now and then I might expand the map labels and short descriptions into a short adventure or a more detailed description of a location. These adventures and locations will be made for an open gaming system or as system agnostic, so they can be easily used in any system.

If you need more visual options for the maps or use them on virtual tabletops, like Roll20, this tier an excellent option for you. Besides making me really happy with your generous support, you will get the following rewards:


  • All the lower level rewards
  • Patreon exclusive alternate version(s)* – I will make an alternate version of the map with added visual features or effects. This might be just a visual alteration or it might be a major change to the theme and feel of the map. 
  • Virtual tabletop ready maps* – I will make separate map files optimized for the virtual tabletops (based on Roll20 standards). 
  • Free PDFs – When I do PDF collections of my maps, you will get a free copy.
  • Prints at cost – You will get all printed map publications I release through DrivethruRPG or RPGnow at cost (shipping excluded). 


* When applicable. For example, it might not be practical to make a virtual tabletop version of the map or include token assets, but I will make at least one of the options available for each map.

Goals
$442 of $450 per high-resolution RPG map.
Free Commercial Maps! – As a small press RPG publisher and game designer, I would like to offer my help to other publishers and designers by making some of my maps available for personal and commercial use for free. Every month that this goal is reached, I will release one high-resolution map from my backlog with a free commercial license on my website.
