RPGMapShare.com is a free site dedicated to the sharing of maps and mapping objects for use in Role-Playing games of all kinds, and promotes discussion of mapping techniques and related topics.

The site has been up in its current form since 2006, and has tens of thousands of user-supplied images for both personal and commercial use.

Until recently, I had relied on user donations to maintain the site, and to purchase CG models in order to render more mapping objects. Unfortunately, donations, though greatly appreciated, were too few and far between to really make much of a difference. I had been paying the server costs out of my own pocket for 8 years. As of a year ago, I announced that I would no longer be able to continue paying to keep the site going, and that I would be looking toward a subscription only service, regrettably. Well, a couple sponsors stepped up and offered to fund the site for a limited time. The offer was very generous, and accepted. But, the offer was limited.

So, I'm starting this GoFundMe page in order to raise enough funds to pay for the dedicated server for two full years, and to upgrade the server for better performance and disk space. Any additional funds will be  used for further server payments as needed.

Thanks for your awesome mapping resource all these years, SR! I hope you can keep it going for many more, and can fix all the issues it's been having. Wish I could donate more, but I'm currently destitute. --Heruca

I've made a lot of use of your site; this is the least I can do.
