Humble Bundle is currently re-running the first Campaign Cartographer 3+ bundle, the Maps Extravaganza, containing not only CC3+, but depending on the level chosen also:

  • City Designer 3
  • Dungeon Designer 3
  • Tome of Ultimate Mapping Plus
  • Perspectives 3
  • Sources Maps: Castles
  • Source Maps: Temples, Tombs and Catacombs
  • Symbol Set 2 – Fantasy Floorplans
  • Token Treasury – Monsters 1
  • Battle Maps and Floorplans Collection (contains a selection of Annual issues)

If you were waiting to jump into CC3+, this is a great opportunity to get it at an awesome price. Even if you already CC3+, this can be well worth it to get a great selection of add-ons. Part of the cost goes toward charity, Save the Children.


Let’s welcome a new contributor to the Cartographer’s Annual: C.C. Charon has been sharing wonderful maps on the Profantasy forum for a while, and we were especially intrigued by his “Sumerian City” maps. Now you can create cities in the same wonderful style, as the June Annual adds his creation as the new “Ancient Cities” drawing style to CC3+.

New symbols, bnew drawing tools and a fresh application of bitmap fills in conjunction with detailed sheet effects make up this new style. Two big example maps and a four-page mapping guide give you plenty of guidance to create your own maps in C.C. Charon’s style.

The June issue is now available for all subscribers from their registration page. If you haven’t subscribed to the Annual 2024 yet, you can do so here.

CA209 Example Dungeons of Schley
The May issue of the Annual 2024 is now available and presents a tool pack for drawing extendable and variable stairs on dungeons and floorplans. No longer limited by symbols of fixed length and direction, the included drawing tools greatly expand your options.

More than a hundred new drawing tools add functionality to popular dungeons styles (DD3 Dungeon, Jon Roberts Dungeon and Dungeons of Schley), but can also be added and used in any other dungeon style. The accompanying mapping guides teaches you how to use and edit the tools, as well a how to set up your own.

We are offering a new bundle on Bundle of Holding, collecting CC3+ and various add-ons in two different tiers that you can choose. Ten percent of the proceeds go Water.org, a charity non-profit organization working to provide safe and water and sanitation world-wide.

The base level contains Campaign Cartographer 3+, Symbol Set 1 to 3, and the Tome of Ultimate Mapping. With the level up you add Dungeon Designer 3, City Designer 3, Fractal Terrains 3+, the Cartographer’s Annual 2022 and the two Token Treasuries to the set, all at a great price.

If you know someone who is interested in our products, let them know of this great offer. Or it can be a great way to expand into various add-ons if you’ve only gotten the base Campaign Cartographer 3+ so far.


We are very happy to have another beautiful style by Pär Lindström in this year’s Cartographer’s Annual, with this month’s Parchment City style. Based on Pär’s work on a 19th century map of Stockholm, the style is very easy and quick to use thanks to to whole city blocks and symbols. You can hen dive in and add special landmarks and individual pieces at your leisure. Of course the accompanying mapping guide tells you how to do all that.

The April issue is now available for all subscribers from their registration page. If you haven’t subscribed to the Annual 2024 yet, you can do so here.

The March Annual issue is available, and subscribers can now start delving into the new Sinister Sewers style by Sue Daniel.

Prepare to get your feet and hands dirty in thick sewage and sludge, as you navigate drains and pipes, and contend with carnivorous plants (those rats must be tasty) and tentacled monstrosities that creep up from the depth below. But at least the streets above are clean and people can blissfully ignore the horrors beneath their feet!

The March issue is now available for all subscribers from their registration page. If you haven’t subscribed to the Annual 2024 yet, you can do so here.

CA206_Kummer Range
The second Annual issue of the year is ready for your mapping needs! We have another overland style for you, but this one is aimed at larger overview maps of a continent or even a whole world, rather than the regional or local maps of the January style. One of the main draws of the style is the range of beautiful mountain symbols by Robert Altbauer, originally featured in an Annual issue on Photoshop brushes in 2010. They have been redone for this issue and integrated into a new style. The accompanying mapping guide takes a closer look at some of the more unique features of this style.

The February issue is now available for all subscribers from their registration page. If you haven’t subscribed to the Annual 2024 yet, you can do so here.
