About

I’m Neil, known here as AfternoonMaps. I love Pen and Paper RPGs and for the last few months I’ve been creating battle maps for fun and for the kind people that support me on Patreon. I started off making maps for my home game and thought “Hey maybe other people would like these”. It turned out that some people do and I’ve been creating a few maps a month for a while now.

My goal for each month is simple… create between 2-4 battle maps along with some fun ideas on how to use them in your game. The amount of maps launched in a month largely depending on my free time and the complexity of the maps. I work as a freelancer, which basically means some weeks I’ll have lots of time to create maps and other weeks I’ll be unable to create maps due to work commitments. I take feedback and suggestions from my Patrons on what they want to see next, where I can improve and what they find most useful. You can take a look at my launch posts to see what maps I’ve released over the last few months and I’ll often post updates on what I’m working on next. Even if you don’t end up becoming a Patron, you can still follow me here to get new updates!

Patreon and how to support me

Patreon is a website that allows people that use my maps to support me financially. Each ‘Patron’ pledges a small amount of money for each map I launch each month.

Becoming a Patron has a few benefits:

  • Tier 1 – Explorer – $1 per map launch
    • You’ll get a map roughly once a week, up to a maximum of four in a month.
    •  You’ll get each map at high quality resolutions, with and without grids.
  • Tier 2 – Delver – $2 per map launch
    • You’ll get a map roughly once a week, up to a maximum of four in a month.
    • You’ll get each map at high quality resolutions, with and without grids.
    • You’ll also get one or more map variations. Examples can be day/night, lit/unlit, weather variations and added assets.
    • You will also get a set of Printable PDFs for all the variants.
  • All Patrons get FREE access to all my previously released battle maps!

About me

As for me personally, I’m a geek that loves tabletop games, fantasy fiction and being creative. Over the last year or two I’ve managed to find a bunch of great people to start playing DnD with, something that’s been sadly lacking from my life for many years. Now I even run my own campaigns when I have time.
