Every month we go through our back catalog of maps and the many amazing supporters of the blog over on Patreon vote on which two should be re-released under the free commercial use license. The Lords of the Aldeiron Peaks is a map I originally drew as part of the 2016 Mapvember Challenge.
On the highest ridge of the Aldeiron Peaks, looking down over the city of Samlein is the hold of those who call themselves the “Lords of the Aldeiron Peaks”. Cut into the near vertical cliff faces are caves on each side of the narrow ridge that lead into the lair of three mighty drakes and below that the small headquarters of the three lords who ride them.
Not actual nobles, these lords are successful adventurers who trained the drakes years ago and have settled here where they can watch over the city and the floodplains beyond.
The 1200 dpi version of the map was drawn at a scale of 300 pixels per square and is 11,400 pixels (38 squares) wide. To use this with a VTT you would need to resize the squares to either 70 pixels (for 5′ squares) or 140 pixels (for 10′ squares) – so resizing it to either 2,660 pixels wide or 5,320 pixels wide, respectively.
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 900 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”).
Please note that the text and name of the map are NOT released under this license, and cannot be used in conjunction with this map in a commercial project. Further, the low-resolution version of the map on the paper background is also clearly marked as having no commercial license.
