Tin Raven Press is a group of RPG creators who are collaborating to create high quality RPG gaming material. The Wilderness of the Lost Realms is our first Kickstarter but our members have been part of over ten successfull Kickstarters so far and bring in a varied pool of experiences and backgrounds.
Josephe Vandel is an artist and graphic designer by day and creator of worlds by night. He has worked on projects and Kickstarters like "Lands of Narrow Paths", "Edara" Steampunk RPG, "Skies of Fire" and the Ennie nominated "Mindjammer". After finishing a Diploma in Fine Arts and Communication Arts in London and Braunschweig (Germany), he now works as a freelance artist on a wide range of projects.
Pieter Talens has loved cartography and map making since he was a child and strives to improve with every map. Artistically, he has become drawn to painterly maps while taking great joy in attempting to carve out hills and valleys with vivid colours and light. Pieter looks forward to producing some high quality city maps for this project!
Joe Banner is a London-based designer who has been writing since 2013. His adventures for Dungeon World have been featured on the DW website, among others. On Kickstarter, his work was included in Perilous Deeps as well as the French translation of Servants of the Cinder Queen. Joe has been releasing monthly PDF adventures through Patreon since 2014. Most recently, Joe released his first book in print: an update to Shadows of Umberto, one of his earliest works. This will be Joe's first all-in solo work, and he's looking forward to the challenge!
PRESS & Recommendations:
"I love Vandel's maps! This looks like a very cool KS." -John Harper (Blades in the Dark, Lady Blackbird)

Fantasy RPG Maps: The Wilderness of the Lost Realms ist ein Projekt das hochwertig gestaltete Karten, wie in Landkarten, für die Visualisierung des Rollenspiel bietet. Die Karten sind recht ansehnlich, hübsch und wohl gerade für Überlandreisen geeignet. Als kleines Goodie, für Leute wie mich, die weniger mit Karten anfangen können, gibt es zudem ein 1€ Pledge. Hier erhält man nicht nur Postkarten große Karten von Inseln, sondern auf der Rückseite befinden sich noch Adventure Hooks. Das Projekt bietet nicht nur super Karten sondern ist auch sorgfältig gestaltet. Die Macher haben Erfahrung was ihr Kunsthandwerk angeht und auch was Kickstarter betrifft. Das ganze ist zudem ein Rollenspielprojekt aus Deutschland. Von mir bekommt es eine klare Empfehlung. Das heißt ich bin sogar bereits dabei.
Risks and challenges
Our artists have many years of experience as cartographers, and have a proven track record with their artwork.
We will alert backers immediately if there are delays in the creation process. We will provide weekly updates for the first two months after successful funding, and will then continue with monthly updates until all orders are fulfilled. It is important for us to stay as transparent as possible to all our backersLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
