30 Days & 30 Maps
#Mapvember is an open challenge for all who enjoy drawing fictional maps for roleplaying games. These maps can be anything from dungeon maps to geographical maps, from fantasy to science fiction, as long as the maps are usable without other maps, tools or information.
This is not a competition, so there are no winners or losers. But hopefully, there will be a bunch of inspired people with a burning desire to draw more maps or use the maps shared by others in their own games.
How Can I Participate?
Easy. There’s no registration or such. Just do this:
- Draw a map of some kind for each day of November…
- Share your creations online with others…
- Tag your map with a hashtag #mapvember and/or #mapvember2019.
Ok. What kind of maps I should do?
There really are no rules to what kind of maps you should do. You can do whatever inspires you. If you are out of ideas, you can find a list of themes and topics above.
What about digital tools?
#mapvember is about making maps, not about the tools you use. As long as you actually design and make the map yourself, using digital tools is just fine.
That’s pretty much it. Let’s have fun!
Who is behind this?
The first #mapvember was organized in 2015 by Miska Fredman. It was also the spark for the creation of Miska’s Maps RPG Cartography. After that the event has grown year by year, and every year more RPG cartography hobbyists and professionals have joined the challenge.
You can find the cartographic creations by searching for hashtags #mapvember or #mapvember+year, and you can browse the prompt lists from the previous years here.
