Not only is the Patreon community a kind supportive group of people but the added perks are a wonderful bonus. Whether getting discounts to other great vendors in the community but when offerings of things like maps for home games I always pick them
Up. They are thoughtfully created and can really lend to games. Looking forward to seeing how the two I just got might fold into the game I’m playing now.
The maps from Deven Rue are always beautiful to behold. With my first full campaign as DM nearing an end I thought it was only right to spend the $5 to have this beautiful map as my wallpaper to commemorate the experience. Outside of that use it’s focus on the natural elements surrounding Ten Towns was greatly appreciated by my party. Hopefully I’ve hinted well enough that the physical version would make a super cool birthday gift in the future, but that’s for a later day!
Would recommend this map especially for online games and the early sections of icewind dale when the party is exploring ten towns.
So excited Deven is adding ways to expand our own home games with shops that make our towns even more exciting. As a newer DM I’ve enjoyed using the 5th edition to create a city for my players to begin but was getting in the weeds building out all the shops that might inhabit a city. These are a great help. Well thought out and the maps make it fun for context or if my players decide to get into trouble in a shop.
I love these brushes!! There are so many to choose from, and I love the variety of shapes when it comes to brushes like forests and mountain ranges. They're high quality and easy to use--I imported mine into Procreate on my iPad. Thank you for the incredible resource, Deven!
Normally I don't give 5 stars to anything but in this case I did because I did not realize the scope of what was being done and after seeing snippets of the Apothecary maps and vague clues as to what was going to be included, I have to say, it FAR exceeded my expectations!
The maps are amazing a full of life. I can almost smell the aromatic scents of different goods, rich wet earth, and thriving greenery. I have to say, this is one of those places I would love to see replicated in some sort herbalist shop.
The NPC document is just absolutely over the top for me. I'm a bit of a lore addict and this sates that hunger. It's not a full on backstory for all of the key NPCs but it's enough to make them feel just as alive as the maps they accompany. Brief backstory synopses, enough personality that even if you aren't very good at portraying different NPCs they're easy enough to pick up, even schedules as far as common daily, seasonal, and meteorological tasks.
If that wasn't enough there are not only easy inventory and service lists but suggestions and guides on how to generate your own!
I really don't feel that any of this does this product justice. Best way to get a feel is to get a look. I can't wait for more of these NPC/Locations to come out!
Thank you for all your hard work Deven!
Barovia holds a near and dear place to my heart. Curse of Strahd was the first campaign book I ever ran, I was deeply entrenched in the r/CurseofStrahd subreddit community for DMs of the module, and I spent 7 months writing a massive Tome of Strahd supplement to the module.
Curse of Strahd got me and my friends through quarantine. This spooky demiplane means the world to me.
Deven Rue has created an impeccable iteration of the module's map. The linework and colors are immaculate. The texture of the paper alone is worth the purchase.
Not only that, after I received a slightly damaged version in the mail, Ms. Rue replied to a customer service message within the hour, sent me a return label for the original, and shipped me a pristine replacement that was at my front door faster than I was able to send the first one back.
11/10 would recommend to anyone that loves the demiplanes of dread.
The packaging was sturdy enough for the mug to survive the norwegian postal system (no small feat), and the overall quality exeeded my expectatios. The size is also perfect for most office situations like waiting for stuff to upload or download from the company servers that should have been donated to a museum years ago
The first thing I noticed were how well packaged my order were, and when I had unboxed eveything the look, feel and quality exeeded my expectations. And the size is ideal for someone like me who strongly believes a cuppa is the solution to everything.
I always loved paper textures, and this is an awesome selection 🤩
The offerings as a scout are great and community of folks surrounding the group are fantastic. Lots of great benefit to joining as well as the bonus of the group discord. Deven’s map work is first rate and I’ve learned a lot lurking in discussions.
Well made and comfortable
These shoes are so comfortable and pretty! My boyfriend was impressed and ordered a different style for himself
I loaded it up and tried it out to see what it looked like. I have not had a project to use it yet, but I am going to soon.
This ultimate brush pack is amazing, there's something for almost any need in here!
The brush pack is excellent quality and easy to use. I can't wait to show my players their new maps! Excellent costumer service as well.
