Maps for Writers Programme

Do you want maps for your adventure writing?

We have compiled a special pack of maps for use by RPG Writers in written adventures.

Its Free.

How Does it Work?

Download any of our special Maps for Writers asset pack from DriveThruRPG and you will have a pack of maps that you can use at reference size in your written adventures!

Many of these maps are also modular and will allow you to build bespoke layouts.

These maps can be used in digital products or printed products, subject to the below terms and conditions, by downloading these files you confirm you agree to the terms & conditions laid out below.

Terms and Conditions

We intend for these maps to be used at reference scale, not battle map play scale. We define reference scale as anything up to one quarter of battle map scale, where Battle Map scale is 1 inch per grid square on the map. So, for example, a map that is 1 foot across (12 x 1 inch squares at battle map scale) can be included at any size up to 3 inches.

You can use our maps, at reference scale, in written materials for personal and commercial usage,  as long as the primary value of the product is not the map asset itself.

You can amend our maps, add any notes or features your adventure requires, and use multiple maps to create your own reference layouts (many of our maps are modular).

Our (brief!) licensing agreement must be included in your product.

Optionally you can also use our Maps for Writers Logo to help us raise awareness of our programme. (But you can’t use Loke Battle Mats logo on any product).

You can’t reproduce the maps at battle map scale in print or online, or any other scale than the specified Reference scale as defined here.

You can’t distribute the stand-alone maps.

You can’t create products where the primary value of the product is the map, for example merchandise like a mug or T-Shirt that someone would buy specifically because of the map printed on it.

Any inclusion of our maps or Maps for Writers logo in or on works which promote hate, or which we (Loke Battle Mats) deem to discriminate against anyone, for any reason, will be deemed in breach of our terms and conditions, and will result in the license being invalidated if you fail to cure such breach within 30 days of becoming aware of the breach.

By downloading and using any Maps for Writers ‘map pack’ you indicate you accept our terms and conditions.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
