Today’s preview: Doryan a.k.a. The Last Continent
What did you use to make this map? Anything special?
Just photoshop! Granted, I did use my Cintiq to shade and draw shapes, etc. but this could all be done with a mouse.
Oh man! this is going to make an awesome poster
Well done son, well done.
My inner cartographer/explorer is squeeling. Also, I misread Glint Lake as starting with a C at first.
At least it was a lake and not the east woods.
This is such an epic map.
Am I allowed to use it in my personal d&d runs?
You did a beautiful job on the map. I agree that it’ll make an excellent poster!
I’m not really a fan of this art style, but it is a very nicely constructed map. It kind of has the feel of World of Warcaft, etc, in the way the world is organized and divided up – just looking it over you can see how a campaign could be structured, where you might want to start, what sort of challenges await the party, where the monster levels might be higher, and, of course, where there are some nice places of interest. I’m not sure which is more interesting: the Vanished Monolith, Rust Lake, or the town of Deep Pockets!
This is awesome! I’d love to have a big ol’ poster of this 😀
Daaayum. *slow clap leading into spontaneous standing ovation*
I’m writing a book, and I’d love to use some of these names. The book is really just for me and close family and friends, so it likely won’t ever be professionally published, but I’d still like your blessing to use some of this stuff in it… I’m bad at coming up with geographical names…
When in doubt, I just steal names from the real world – It’s amazing how much fun you can have just by translating place names around the world: The Abode of Snow, The Fire Peaks, or The Empty Quarter.
Does anybody besides me see this as a pinball table, with the mountains as bumpers and chutes?
Seriously, well done, sir!
This is gorgeous.
Very pretty, but the way your rivers are behaving is making my inner cartographer scream with frustration.
Live with them. Change them. I’m easy either way.
A wizard did it.
Man these last few update have made me wish I had backed the kickstarter. Too bad it’s too late. I have a little extra money now that the pebble kickstarter was canceled due to the sale to fitbit.
If anyone else habitually tries to work out scale, it’s about 2700 miles wide and 4000 miles high at the max points. That’s about the size of, oh, call it Asia without Russia.
Beautiful! My Map Boner is at full mast!
Eww! Just…Eww! Over share alert!
I’ve always loved Fantasy maps like this. Any chance you have a high(er) res. version of this available? I would love to blow it up to poster size and add more detail like smaller towns, keeps, caves, etc,.. for an eventual campaign in Karthun on Roll20. Man, I am so excited. “The suspense is terrible! I hope it’ll last.”
Anyone else notice Winterwood looks kind of like Australia? Is that where all the really dangerous stuff lives like Dire Butterflies?
I noticed that too. And Kraghorn looks a bit like India and Traxyn looks like an alligator about to eat a blue mountain/arrow head. And last but probably not least…mirror lake looks a bit like a picture of a neuron.
Wow, best I got is 8-bit for my larger-scaled maps. I personally use RPGMaker VX Ace, helps cover multiple fields for my hobbies. Love the design 😀
