blank province, kingdom, and continent hex maps for 5e

provincemapI just talked about the DMG map scales for 5e D&D: province (1 mile hex), kingdom (6 mile hex), and continent (60 mile hex).

Maybe you want to try drawing up a new continent for your brand new 5e game. I’ve made print-resolution blank hex map PDFs for the three map scales. As suggested in the DMG, it’s 5 hexes to the inch.

Province map has kingdom hexes overlaid on it so you can easily place it on your kingdom map.

Kingdom map has a continent hex overlay.

Continent map is just a plain hex grid.

Here’s a zip of all three.

    Very nice! I will get some use out of these.

    Well done! The overlays are a great idea. Should make “zooming” very easy. If I can get my 5E campaign up and running, I will almost certainly make use of these!

    Just awesome. Many thanks!

    Looks good.
    Question: is the size (1 mi, 6 mi, 60 mi) measured facet to facet or vertex to vertex?

    Why use hexes for overland maps? They don’t divide evenly into squares as far as I can see. A 5 ft square grid likely will never line up properly with a 1 mile hex grid. Or the other way around. They are completely incompatible shapes, as far as overlap goes.

    I know the hexes have history going back to OD&D, but I don’t see why they stick around.

    Thank you, truly. This is excellent!

    This is great, any chance of a landscape format? (rotating it rotates the hexes obviously, an actual landscape option would be nice)

    Nice! Any chance of an A4 version? :)

    Thanks these are great. I am using them all for my campaign.

  11. Nate says:

    This is perfect! The hardest part I’ve had in making my maps is keeping a consistent scale! I love it!

  12. These are fantastic. I’m going to plug them in the next episode (156) of my RPG podcast, Game Master’s Journey.
