I am Dyson Logos, a crafter of maps, adventures, and occasional other RPG content mostly centred on “OSR”-style play. 95% of my work is pen-on-paper cartography in the style of RPG products of the 1970’s and 1980’s.

Free-Maps2

The main emphasis of my work is the production and dissemination of free maps from the Dyson’s Dodecahedron blog. At this time I release an average of two maps a week from the blog, free for personal use and reproduction including the use and modification of these maps for non-commercial use (such as non-commercially released adventures and campaign settings and so on). A huge variety of maps have been produced and released on the blog over the last six years including dungeons, caverns, cities, towns, temples, inns & taverns, regional maps, and hundreds of dungeon geomorphs.
