What is Mapvember?
Mapvember is an open, inspiration challenge for anyone who enjoys creating fictional maps. These maps can be anything from dungeon maps to geographical maps, from fantasy to science fiction, as long as the maps are usable without other maps, tools or information. The challenge is organized by Miska’s Maps, a battlemap creator, who releases a list of prompts to guide your map making.
Mapvember 2021 – not just maps, but worldbuilding prompts too!
Wait – Mapvember AND Worldbuilding? Yup, this year, World Anvil is collaborating with Miska’s Maps to open up the challenge to worldbuilders everywhere! We’ve expanded Miska’s original prompts (with his permission!) into 30 worldbuilding prompts to inspire you this November! (And maybe even help get you prepared for WorldEmber!) Check out the prompts below!
How Can I Participate?
- Participation is easy! Either draw a map of some kind, or create a piece of worldbuilding, for each day of November!
- Share your creations online with others.
- Tag your map with a hashtag #mapvember and/or #mapvember[year] – this year that’s #mapvember2021! You can also tag in @WorldAnvil and @MiskasMaps if you want. We’ll share some of our favourite entries through our official accounts.
