Maps

Good lord I love maps.

When I started this blog I hadn’t even considered using it to fulfill my map fetish in some twisted way. But now it is best known for my maps.

So here I’m collecting all my maps so you don’t have to dig through the whole archive of blog posts to find them. I actually recommend that you start at the bottom of the page because the maps are posted in chronological order and I am a much better cartographer now than I was in 2009.

I’ve also included a legend of the majority of the mapping symbols used throughout these maps (well, mostly the overhead maps – the side-views are pretty much the same and/or self-evident I hope).

There are several groups of maps I’m not linking to here, for those you’ll have to go to their appropriate pages:

  1. Drool. Just awesome.

  2. I have a week long trip with family ahead of me so I’m running a short dungeon crawler for my brothers while we’re there. This is EXACTLY what I needed!

  3. Great stuff! Thx for sharing!

  4. Wow, what a great collection. It has been a good year for maps!

    • Dyson Logos said:

      Thanks, man. And I have another “How to Host a Dungeon” end product map going up soonish as one of my Friday updates.

  5. Dude, I’m going to steal every single one of these. For home use only, of course. Awesome maps.

    • Dyson Logos said:

      If you use them and send me a stocked version (for any game system) I’ll post it, or feel free to post a stocked version to your own blog and I’ll promote it!

  6. Wonderful stuff here. I’m always on the prowl for maps to plop down for a quick encounter. Thanks so much for sharing em.

  7. Congratulations!
    What a wonderful work!!
    Best regards
    Pepe

  8. Do you have keys for any of these? Are any of your wares for sale/public domain use?

    • Dyson Logos said:

      The keyed ones are keyed… The rest aren’t. As for usage, I encourage people to stock them on their blogs and I’ll post a link to the stocked dungeon on their blog. The rules though are that I still own the map, I get credit for the map (and a link) and that these are not for commercial projects. For that you have to get a license from me.

      The geomorphs come with a “use, reuse, abuse and remix” license.

    Wow, I am humbled.

  10. Nice maps. You should join the Cartographers’ Guild (cartographersguild.com) if you aren’t a member already.

  11. Wow. The best maps for roleplaying that I have ever seen. Thank you for sharing them with everybody.

  12. These are so gorgeous. So glad I found this site.

  13. jacob sylvest said:

    Whoo, what beautiful maps, thank you for sharing

  14. Too…many….awesomes [head explodes]. [Scrapes goop off monitor, reassembles into same old geek] Thanks for posting such great maps. I’ve recently begun a rather rough shod homebrew and I think my newbs will have a great time crawling through these.

  15. Awesome. How did you draw these? By hand of a maybe a wacom tablet? How do you keep the grids aligned?

    • Thanks! Drawn by hand on a variety of mediums. Most of the maps actually indicate how they were drawn and on what medium and if a grid was used if you read the specific page.

  16. I have enjoyed these maps greatly. I will now attempt to build my own, maybe I will share it if it turns out well. Thanks for the inspiration great sir!

  17. Great Job! I love the classic style.

  18. A truly incredible and awesome collection!

  19. Dude, your cartography is excellent! Did you ever consider getting into caving? There are loads of still unmapped caves, and with your skills you could create maps of real things and aid science at the same time. Not to mention that caves are pretty awesome.

  20. great work!!

  21. OMG!! This Is Amazing!! From super complexes to simple 3 room hideaways. Thank you so much for making these free to use. I want them all, but it will take forever to download them. Is there a pdf compilation of all of them or will my next few hours be composed of incessant clicking?

  22. Have you done a labyrinth? I typically use your site for maps to use in my Labyrinth Lord Campaign. Currently were delving in Dysons Delve. It has been a blast, and the 1in6 restocking rule you helped me with in Google+ has been working quite well.

    Also have you ever considered a “Blue Phase” similar to the ” Old School” map style?

    Regardless, i cant thank you enough for all the work you’ve done here , and the countless hours you have saved me in game preparation.

    Thanks,
    Ron howard

    Oh, and i wanted to mention , i have your site linked in my Google+ community, and have asked my players not to look at to many maps …..hate to ruin their fun.
