About

Hi, I'm Miska Fredman and I created this Patreon project to support my RPG cartography and to help me improve as an artist. Perhaps even be a full-time RPG cartographer and designer one day. 

Vote For Your Favorite Maps

Every month I set up a poll for my patrons with a variety of choices and you can vote for your favorites in that list (as many as you like). I'll pick the highest-ranking maps from the list – usually, around 4, and make these into full map packs with color maps per month plus a few smaller maps as bonus content (usually in black and white or with fewer versions).

In the monthly polls, the maps are divided into Sci-Fi and Fantasy maps. These are broad categories including a variety of sub-genres. Every month I make the winners of both categories first, and after this, I will make at least two other maps with a high number of votes. Currently, around 80% of the full map releases are sci-fi maps.

Sci-Fi maps include, for example, space opera, hard SF, 1920s Lovecraftian horror, urban fantasy, cyberpunk, post-apocalyptic, and similar genres. 

Fantasy maps include, for example, high fantasy, steampunk, planetary romance, weird west and similar genres with fantastic and historical themes and features.

Patreon-Exclusive Map Packs

Each map pack includes one map with a variety of different versions. These might include variants such as with and without a grid, a night version, a version with notes or labels, printer-friendly black & white version, and so on.

The maps are printer-quality and optimized for online use. Whenever it is reasonable, I make an online version optimized to meet the Roll20 standards (140 px per square) or include a 1" grid version of the map for printing and use with miniatures. The maps come in .jpg format or .png format if transparency features are required. 

I do mostly dungeons, deck plans, and battle maps. The scale of my maps usually ranges from medium-scale dungeons or deck plans to small scale battle maps.

Map Archive With Over 200 Maps

This Patreon project includes an archive of over 200 sci-fi and fantasy RPG maps with their variations. Map archive includes links to all of my maps released on Patreon over the years. The map archive will be updated with new maps when they are published. 

Check out the Archives HERE

Bonus Maps and Other Content

On top of the full map packs, I make maps that can be black & white or somehow experimental. They might have various special features, design notes, or lore with them, but there really is no standard for the bonus maps.

Besides maps, the bonus content might also include adventures or other RPG material from me or some other creators who I collaborate with occasionally. 

Quarterly Map Dossiers

Roughly once in a quarter, I collect the recently published maps into one PDF collection with a dozen maps. This collection does not necessarily include all the variants of the original releases, but at least a few. These collections are distributed through DrivethruRPG and/or Patreon messages. 


Live Streams and Videos

I do live streams of my map drawing sessions on Twitch. Mostly, I use Photoshop, but occasionally I set up my webcam to capture when I draw the line art by hand or have more relaxed chatting sessions. I also have a Youtube channel where I publish recordings of my live broadcasts and shorter timelapse videos of my creative process.


Do you want to support my work?

Get on board and become a patron! Your support, it really matters! It allows me to devote more time to create original tabletop RPG maps and videos, use better tools, materials, and pay for software and service subscriptions. Still, my biggest dream and goal is to become a full-time cartography artist one day!


THANK YOU!

Goals
256 of 275 patrons
iPad Pro & Apple Pencil – For mobile work, I would like to upgrade my tools with an iPad Pro 11" and an Apple Pencil 2. This would greatly increase my productivity, especially now that Photoshop is available also for iPad.
