A collection of free to use resources to help participants of the DMJAM and other adventure writers. Did I forget something, link not working or want your own work added? Don’t hesitate and let me know!
DMsguild – The guild has a lot of free artwork you can just download and use. Monsters, maps, locations and other stuff.
DriveThruRPG – Just like the DM’s guild lots of free, PWYW or paid works.
The Met – Over 450.000 images of artworks in human history. Once you search something be sure to mark Public Domain Artworks on the left side menu.
The British Library – Over 1.000.000 images, all free to use. Sadly no search function but they do have albums of different stuff like fauna, Ghost and ghoulish scenes, Ships and boats…
Dyson Logos – An awesome list of maps you can use and modify as long as you give credit to him.
Deven Rue – Black and white world maps as long as the artist is clearly attributed & is not being sold as individual images or part of an art collection.

Polygon Map Generator – This generator creates simple “volcanic” style island maps.
Hexographer – Hex map builder, there is a free version.

CritterDB – Create your own 5e monster stat blocks.
GMBinder – Tool to create and manage tabletop RPG documents to look like Dungeons and Dragons products. Still updates on a regular basis.
Homebrewery – Does the same as GMBinder but is a bit older and hasn’t been updated for a while.
