Something Different

Map of land and water

Just some place

I’m feeling a lot like not wanting to write today, but have generally been good about writing regularly (a post every day for more than five weeks).  Instead I thought I’d do something different, practice a bit of map drawing.

It’s been a while, I’m relearning techniques I haven’t practiced in over a year, so things aren’t quite as polished as I’d like.  Ah well, this just means I’ll get better, yeah?

Case in point, my ‘rivers to nowhere’ at the bottom of the map — I forgot to scroll the silly thing when drawing the rivers and they just end.  River police are gonna get me….

Who knows, I might do these irregularly, I may decide to start a regular feature where I draw a picture of a place that doesn’t exist.

    The places feature sounds like a good idea, perhaps with an invitation for people to suggest things about the places depicted.

    For instance, that wide bay with two natural anchorages at the north end of the mountain range combined with the proximity of the largest forests suggests to me that that there is a nation there which is a significant naval power.

    Didn’t you at one time consider having Terrain Tiers?

    Clearly the rivers that disappear go down to the city of the drow in their underground kingdom. Then later they pop backup and go into the delta we see on the south coastline. This is a geographical necessity, because otherwire the heroes have no way of escaping the city at the end of the module. long live gyjax
