This FREE  bridge map marks an exciting transition for 2-Minute Table Top! Thanks to our amazing community of Patrons, I am happy to publish this map under a Creative Commons license. Not only does that mean it’s free, but you are welcome to share it and incorporate it into your own material! More info below…



The East Bridge is loosely based on the Togetsukyo Bridge in western (oops) Kyoto, where the muted city meets the forested mountains. It’s also a sentimental representation of crossing from 2016 into a very optimistic 2017, and incorporates many techniques I learned last year whilst trying something new, namely with the sketchy-watercolor style and vibrant palette.

As for its merit as a battle map, it should make for a fun encounter with a duelist, or a choke point to stave off an invasion. Perhaps the city guard is off fighting in *the war* and your players must dislodge a camp of highwaymen or sahuagin? Maybe some drunken dockworkers are just looking for a scuffle?

Let us know what you come up with in the comments!

  1. I’d just like to throw out a big thank you for making all these maps! I’ve bought a few, and have the free maps too. They’ve saved me time crafting maps of my own, and they look fantastic to boot!

    Keep up the good work!

In this video I explain the foundational discipline of “flatting” and my personal method. It is an excellent practice that makes layer manipulation and color tweaking very simple in all stages of your coloring process.
