Every month that Patreon funding remains over the $400 mark I sift through my back catalog and bring up a selection of maps that my patrons then vote on as to which will be released under the free commercial-use license. This month we are starting out with a recent city of mine – Dawnharbor!

Facing east towards a volcanic island just over the horizon, the fortified city of Dawnharbor earns its name because of the astounding sunrises seen from the mountains along the region. Dawnharbor itself is tucked into a low outlet where the Hero’s Branch river crawls out of the mountains and into the sea.



Built around a number of fortifications, the city has seen several stages of growth and multiple curtain walls have been built to defend the city as it grew. The most visible fortification from most approaches is the Fairie’s Citadel on the south side of town built on a low rise of the mountain. The citadel houses Count Agatenios and his retinue as well as most of the men at arms of the city – however for most military matters the Count relies on his old friend Lady Larosine the Blue who masters the defenses of the city from the Blue Fort cut into the side of the mountain itself on the southwest side of town, looking down over the harbor and the first walls of the city.


This map is made available to you under a free license for personal or commercial use under the “RELEASE THE KRAKEN” initiative thanks to the awesome supporters of my Patreon Campaign. Over 400 awesome patrons have come together to fund the site and these maps, making them free for your use.

Because of the incredible generosity of my patrons, I’m able to make this map free for commercial use also. Each month while funding is over the $400 mark, we choose a map from the blog’s extensive back catalog to retroactively release under this free commercial license. You can use, reuse, remix and/or modify the maps that are being published under the commercial license on a royalty-free basis as long as they include attribution (“Cartography by Dyson Logos” or “Maps by Dyson Logos”). For those that want/need a Creative Commons license, it would look something like this:
