Hello! I'm an independent artist with a passion for making all kinds of maps and layouts for role-playing games. These maps might include images like battle maps, towns, cities, even maps of entire regions! However, I love the community-driven aspects of RPGs and while I certainly enjoy making my own creations, I want to try and help you do the same! For that reason, part of the support provided here will help me to continue to make map-making guides for those of you looking to bring your own hand into your gaming world too.

Venatus is Latin for Adventure. I always strive to achieve a balance for that sense of adventure and possibility present in good maps, while also ensuring that they're functional and pragmatic for the Game Masters using them. My hope is that through either using the maps I create here, or through making your own maps with the help of the guides I make, that I'll be able to help you instill that same sense of adventure.



First of all, thank you for considering supporting me and the content I produce here. If you're new to Patreon, this page here helps to facilitate individuals to pay whatever they're comfortable with in relatively small amounts for the maps I create. If you choose to become a patron here, you'll need to select a 'tier' of support between $1.00, $3.00, $5.00, or $10.00 per map I create. Currently I have a release schedule of 5 maps per month, and won't be increasing that rate without making the proper announcement first.

As you sign up to support me, you'll also be prompted to set up a maximum monthly pledge. This allows you to ensure that you won't be billed over a certain amount, regardless of what rewards tier you're in or how many maps I release in a given month (note that some rewards are dependent on you not having a maximum pledge set). If for some reason I fail to release any maps or am below my average threshold you will not be billed. You only pay what you sign up for here.

Enjoy maps, but can't afford to support me right now? No problem. Admittedly, the higher resolution and alternative versions of my maps are considered 'patron-only' content, but you can access free versions of my maps on a delayed release schedule at the Venatus Maps blog.

Sharing and Commercial Use: All of the content I produce and release here or on the accompanying blog are for your personal use. If you're interested in using the content released here for commercial purposes, check out the $10.00 reward tier--feel free to contact me using the email address below for future questions. Otherwise, this content is published under BY-NC-SA 4.0 international Creative Commons license and you are free to share these maps as much as you'd like, but do please give credit for my work!

And on that note, you should know that the primary font I utilize in my maps is the Yellow Magician font, a personal favorite and one I have used for a few years now.

Questions? Feel free to reach out to me personally with questions, suggestions, comments, or just to say hi at [email protected].
