Totally understand. $500 isn't cheap. But at the same time, these artists work really hard. They put in quite a few hours. Josiah and I have exchanged at least 50 different emails tweaking this, and making this amazing. His hourly once everything is said and done isn't stellar. And this is 100% a luxury item. No one NEEDS a fancy map of their D&D homebrew world. There are plenty of worlds and world maps you could make your own. Heck - you could literally take MY map and make it whatever you wanted. You'd using material unlicensed, but I don't know how anyone would ever catch you.
I bet you can go even cheaper Halaster - because you don't even need the new edition you've got your books already.
I run my sessions weekly, missing around 6 weeks a year. Thats 46 weeks. 4 hours a piece. 2 years for an average campaign. I'll likely play 2-3 campaigns in this world minimum. Call it 2.5 average. Thats 46 x 2 x 4 x 2.5 is... 920 hours of entertainment. Even a $500 map divided over that time is a little over $0.50/hour. Not bad for the additional enjoyment.
I appreciate though that not everyone is in a place where they can afford that kind of up front investment. It can be a tall order. I am blessed and grateful that I can. I definitely think it is worth it over the long haul
