May’s Schedule and News

This material was posted on patreon by Heroic Maps

–Kingdom Project–

This month’s reward bundles (coming to you on the 5th) contain our first Kingdom project maps.  You can remind yourself about what that is here, or just ignore the whole thing and continue to get loads of cool maps anyway. The choice is yours!  The Third Map that we’ll be designing this month will come from your suggestions for a place in the Old Kingdom. The post requesting ideas will be up later today.

–Other news–

For some reason, we tend to have some kind of sci-fi maps deal on DrivethruRPG around the beginning of May *shrug emoji* and this year is no different. Keep your eyes peeled for a themed bundle going live on the 4th.

–Claiming Patron Benefits/Reward Bundles–

If you haven’t already claimed your April reward bundle, now is a good time!

We use DrivethruRPG to deliver our reward bundles.  On Rewards Day (usually the 5th of the month), all of the maps you help fund are uploaded to DrivethruRPG. Then we’ll send you a set of codes for your maps. Clicking these codes will claim the maps and add them to your Drivethru account for free. You can then download any of your maps whenever you choose – they’ll stay in your account at Drivethru forever. We just ask that you click the codes and claim the maps within 2 months of receiving the code.

–Bundle contents reminder–

Every month your support helps us make a bunch of amazing maps and supplements. The content you’ll receive in your bundle every month is:

  • Map of the Month – a fantasy map, at least 20×20 in size, but almost always bigger
  • 3 Variants – three thematic variants of the MotM
  • Alt-Version – suggested by you, and voted on by you, a re-imagining of the MotM
  • The Third Map – a completely different, exciting fantasy map, usually picked from Patron ideas.
  • A megadungeon level – a level from the current 6-level megadungeon
  • A multi-page adventure supplement for the MotM and a resource page for another map

Our Sci-Fi tier supporters also get:

  • A Sci-Fi Map of the Month
  • A level from the current Sci-Fi 6-part MegaMap

  • 7th May – MotM & Alt-Version Poll: Today we’ll preview your June Map of the Month! It’ll be the next map in our 6-month Kingdom Project.  It’s a bit of a tricky one for Alt-Map suggestions, so we’ve come up with the ideas and will poll you for your favourite.
