Monstrum Studio is the mind-child of a Wizard and Rogue duo who love D&D and love to create. And they just so happen to be married to each other.

The Wizard loves telling stories, sharing advice, and magicking up various 3D props for their games, while the Rogue is an artist who loves drawing and creating artwork of her favorite items. They both have a fondness for making maps, and being very un-Wizard and un-Rogue-like, they want to share their loot and experiences with others.

Here at Monstrum Studio, you can find articles full of ideas for your next tabletop gaming session, the latest artwork, and maps. Lots of maps.


"Are we there yet?"

You’re traveling along and the bard, once again, asks this question. But unfortunately, during the last battle with some goblins, your map was misplaced. Hopefully you’ll find the next town soon.

Now, we all know that you unless you’re a “fly by the seat of your pants” adventurer, maps come in handy. Monstrum plans to create 1-2 maps per month of buildings or areas, typically with a focus on locations that have multiple levels, that have features that have significant height or depth, overhangs, places where people that can hide, places that are visually striking when viewed 3D… You get the idea. (Learn more about our thoughts behind our map choices:  Monstrum Maps: Our choices, and why we made them.)

Details, details, details...

Monstrum maps are meant to fit a variety of tabletops: from virtual to physical. Our virtual maps will be sized to fit Roll20’s page specifications (70px = 1”), but should be fairly resizeable for other virtual table tops, and our print maps will be sized to 300dpi. The 3D image that will accompany each map will also be available in web and print resolutions so you can either display it for your online gamers or print it out and place it on the table for reference.

You can take the print files to a printer for printing if you so choose, but please note that Monstrum maps are available for personal use only, and at this point, we ask that our material for not be used for your own commercial use. We will definitely consider commercial use options if it sounds like it may be a popular notion. You are welcome to share images of you using our maps as well and, please share them in the Discord channel – we’d love to see them in action!

Thank you so much!

The Wizard and Rogue love what they do, and they love gaming. Every pledge adds up – even those single dollars – and each one encourages us to work harder and think outside the box to come up with better and different ideas for our maps so you can have fantastic games. We appreciate each and everyone who crosses our paths and, if you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Gnoll
$1 or more per month

You hear leaves rustle. Then a yipping laugh. Eyes, some red, gleam through the underbrush. If you’re quick, you can grab the scroll case by the fallen tree and still have time to escape.


Joining Monstrum at the Gnoll tier grants you access to:


  • high-quality online-ready, gridded maps
  • high-quality 3D online-ready image of the map area
  • Monstrum Discord server
  • personal thank you!
Includes Discord rewards
Mimic
$3 or more per month

There's a chest in front of you, but as you reach out towards it, eyes slowly creep open and the lid groans, full of sharp teeth. You see a container inside the mouth, probably containing the map you're looking for. Be careful!


Joining the Mimic tier grants you access to: 


  • all previous tier rewards
  • high quality, print ready, gridded maps (300dpi, 1" grid)
  • 3D image of the building or area to share with your players
Includes Discord rewards
Displacer Beast
$5 or more per month

The shadows are deep. Pebbles tumble quietly around your feet as you creep slowly forward. A growl from the shadows stops you in your tracks, but you see a satchel sitting nearby. Surely it contains something important.


Joining Monstrum at the Displacer Beast tier grants you access to:

  • all previous tier rewards
  • high-quality, gridless versions of each map
  • props available separately from the map
  • vote in patron-only polls that will help determine what type of content we will be making next! 
Includes Discord rewards
Beholder
$8 or more per month

The cavern is large. Water drips echo through the air, giving the impression of looming doom. A voice whispers, deep and sinister. Are you sure this reward is worth fighting the beholder said to lair here?


Joining Monstrum at the Beholder tier grants you access to:


  • all previous tier rewards
  • PSD layered file of overhead map (not included in free posts)
Includes Discord rewards

There's a farmhouse just off the road. It's not in bad condition, but you've heard some rumblings. Maybe it's time to check it out?

We'll create a small, multi-story farmhouse for your party to explore. What will they find?
