Cavalry

reward item
$3
per month
Our soldiers learned quickly to depend upon the rapid and brutal efficiency of our Cavalry in the thick of battle. Striding into battle atop armored warhorses and adorned in the finest gear, you emerge at the enemies flank and throw their ranks into chaos. Always on the move, striking with lightning precision and vanishing into the skirmish like a phantom, you are the vital backbone of our army.

The benefits of this Tier include:

  • My deepest appreciation and gratitude

  • Access to Patron-only Polls

  • Exclusive Battlemaps in the form of Air Strikes and Supply Drops

  • Access to all previously released content.

  • High Quality JPEGs and VTTs. Grided, Gridless and No Canopy (when applicable), as well as a printer friendly versions of each map.

  • Night (or otherwise altered) versions of each map/scene

  • Commission Discount:: You receive 10% off the price of any commission you order. Please email me at [email protected] instead of using the Ko-Fi link, otherwise it will charge you in full.
Includes Discord benefits

Air Support

reward item
$5
per month
Only the finest engineers, pilots and fighters are ultimately recruited as Air Support. Piloting the best airships our people can create, you patrol the skies and provide rapid support and intel. When danger inevitably rears its head, you descend from the clouds with weapons at the ready and spells hurtling towards our foes. Not to be outdone by the opening salvo, the boarding party that follows never fails to finish the job.

The benefits of this Tier include:

  •  All Cavalry-Tier benefits

  •  Once per month you may request an Airstrike. When requesting an airstrike battlemap you can either give me a brief description, even as simple as a couple of words, or you can go into further detail. Each side can be a minimum of 5 squares and a maximum of 20, with the two sides totaling no more than 30 squares. Your submission will be placed into a pool with any other Air Support members submissions, and I will select one or two at random each monthIf a previous winner is drawn again, they will be skipped until all other Air Support members have had their submission created, so that everyone gets a turn. Patron requested airstrikes will only be shared with Patrons.




Includes Discord benefits

Summoner

reward item
$10
per month
When the tides turn against us and hope has faded from view, you join the fight with a thunderous beckoning, calling forth mighty beasts and terrible elements, laying waste to our enemies and keeping our people safe. Masters of ancient magics and wielders of Eldritch artifacts, Summoners provide sanctuary and wrath alike.

The benefits of this Tier include:

  • All Air Support-Tier benefits

  • Access to Summoning Circles which contain the DungeonDraft files for all of the battlemaps that I publish. Learn from my process, make specific adjustments for your game, whatever you'd like. NOTE: I have a large list of asset packs loaded with every project. This could make it difficult to use these files without also downloading all of the same packs. I am working on an updated list of used asset packs, though even that will only help so much. Please keep this in mind if you're signing up specifically for this benefit

About


Welcome to the Nexus!

Hello there, I'm Zach and I make Battlemaps and Scenic views for TTRPGs. Please feel free to send any questions or concerns to my email, [email protected]

-- FREE ARCHIVE --
-- PATRON'S ARCHIVE --

I've been drawing up world maps and dungeons since pretty much the moment I discovered D&D at the local gaming shop when I was thirteen. I just had a pencil and paper back then, but now thanks to incredible programs like DungeonDraft and Inkarnate, I've been able to make the jump to digital. I've never really considered myself an artist and generally kept sketches to myself or my close friends, but this has really given me a boost in confidence and enjoyment.

Choosing to back me is a great way to show your support, but you are always welcome to the free map packs and scenes that I post here as well.

For now I'm making approximately one Map Pack a month, which can consist of a large multi-level map, or three individual maps of a given theme. Each map not only comes with variations, but most will also have matching scene that I make beforehand with Inkarnate. I also create random scenes from time to time and share them here first. In addition, I release smaller random / Patron requested maps as Airstrikes, and larger random / commissioned maps as Supply Drops. Some of these will be free, others are only for Patrons.

Thank you so much for you interest, encouragement and continued support, it means the world to me.

Some of my maps don't shy away from blood and darker themes through environmental storytelling. These may or may not be upsetting to some people, so I would like to offer you the chance to turn back now if these topics may offend you in any way. Please stay safe and well out there.
