This year the Mapvember is all about monsters! Each day is given a name of a fairly well known fantasy monster. You can use the theme of the day in any way you like – you can even turn it into a name of a place or make a sci-fi version of it if you like. It’s totally up to you.


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, 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 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:

  1. Draw a map of some kind for each day of November…
  2. Share your creations online with others…
  3. Tag your map with a hashtag #mapvember and/or #mapvember2017.


Ok. What kind of maps I should do?

There really is no rules to what kind of maps you should do. You can do what ever 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!
