Old school fantasy and science fiction maps for roleplaying games

Dungeon intersection

Welcome to Paths Peculiar – an online resource for dungeon masters and fans of the fantasy and science fiction genres.

I publish hand-drawn maps (and sometimes drawing of other fantasic things) for use with roleplaying games like Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder and the various Old School Renaissance (OSR) games. The maps posted here are suitable for any game with a setting similar to the ones in such games.

Below is a sample of my work, however if you’d like to browse, I’d recommend you head on to the blog where the maps are posted with a bit more context and usually with some adventure hooks.

Download maps for free

You are welcome to download whatever you wish on this website, for personal use – however please do not publish the maps elsewhere without my permission. I hope my maps will bring you inspiration and enhance your campaigns.
