Battle maps are an essential part of many tabletop RPGs. They can be as simple as a single room or as complex as a vast underground dungeon. Both simple hand drawn and extravagantly artistic battle maps are welcome here. Tutorials describing map creating tips and tricks are also welcome.

Check out the weekly megathread for discussions and requests!

/r/battlemaps Rules

Rule 1. Be Respectful

Be civil with others. Follow reddiquette. Hateful, vulgar, or otherwise offensive content and disrespectful behavior will not be tolerated.

Rule 2. Constructive criticism only

Helpful critiques are perfectly fine, if not expected. But by no means should you be rude, vulgar, or disrespectful to posters or commenters. Follow reddiquette.

Rule 3. Stay on topic

This subreddit is for the posting and discussion of tabletop Battlemaps. Original maps should ideally be posted by their creator(s). Posting a map without crediting the original creator is not allowed. Discussion, help, resource, and meta posts are also fine, so long as they are flaired appropriately. Things such as region or world maps are better fitted in subs such as r/dndmaps, r/worldbuilding, or even r/cartographersguild.

Rule 4. Maps should be shared in a usable and accessible way

(e.g. not behind a paywall or online store). Allowed without approval: Shoutouts to patreon, or shops ONLY if the post includes a useable map.
Not allowed (unless pre-approved): Posts without useable maps, such as partial images, pre-placed tokens, or watermarks that render the map unusable by blocking major portions of the usable map, etc.

Rule 5. Requests, commission, promotions, and other discussion posts are restricted to the megathread.
Rule 6. Fiverr, Linktree, and Etsy are banned site-wide by Reddit.

These and certain other domains are banned by Reddit Admins globally to prevent scams and spam.

Rule 7. AI generated images are not allowed.

If your map is made with AI generated images such as Midjourney, Stable Diffusion, DALL-E, etc., it will be removed.

Rule 8. Limit one post per day per creator.


All posts must use appropriate flair.

First “Hand drawn”

I’ve made many a map on Dungeondraft and Inkarnate before, this time I wanted to make exactly what I had in my head. Still a long way to go but pleased with my first effort.
