View Full Version : [Unpaid - Taken] dnd.chromesphere.com - adventure website map request
06-21-2010, 11:31 PM
A few months ago i posted a request for a regional map and a town map of a solo adventure website i have made (free adventure), dnd.chromesphere.com. I received an outstanding regional map from Carnifex, which i am very gratiful for.
However, I'm still very much eager to have some sort of town map. I'm not really concerned about the level of skill of the cartographer, or if it's not of a similar style (or skill level) of Carnifex's regional map. Even just something basic to help the players visualise the main town street, with shops etc, would be great!
Please see the previous thread for a sketch that i have done of the town map, you can use as a guide, and more info.
Unfortunately as this is not a paid adventure i cant offer you payment for your service. The only thing i can offer, is a thank you comment posted on the homepage of dnd.chromesphere.com and a link to your site if you have one.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
is it important that the city is an exact match... or that small? ... cause there are allready a lot of good city maps in here - that you probably can use if you ask people - try looking through the finished maps section :)

For some reason I can't open the scans up. I'll have to try again later.

Thanks for the replies. I didnt think of that tilt. If i dont get any offers here i will look into a blank map that i could fit to suit. (after i get permission of course). Thanks for the idea.
Sorry Jaxilon, having some major headaches with my nameserver at the moment. You SHOULD be able to get to them now though.
no prob ... the map is so small I'd do it for you if I had the time - unfortunatly I'm swamped with work at the moment

Some time has passed since i posted this request. I just wanted to resurrect it and see if there was anyone out there that could help as im still in need of a town map (see above).

Hi chromesphere. I'm currently experimenting with a town / city style (link here (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?13005-Another-Test-City)). I've seen your scans and the town is quite small. I can quite quickly knock up something for you using my existing map as a template if you like?

Your city style would work for the campaign. Infact. you could make it bigger if you wanted then the, very small town ive drawn. When i say 'bigger' im thinking, maybe the same size as the western watch in the test city. With the main road down the middle, that would work well. Also, 'bigger' as in resolution. Im going to put numbers on the shops to show the players where things are laid out in the town. Much like Carnifex's map (the purple dots with the numbers): http://dnd.chromesphere.com/graphics/maps/dragon_shore_Region_map.jpg
I'm also incorporating into the story, in the final quest there is details about the town having fortifications around its parimetre. If its not too much trouble, if you could surround the town in a wall that would be awesome!
Thanks again for the offer Ravell! I really appreciate it, and i KNOW the players of the campaign will too. Please let me know if you need anything clarified!

Shouldn't be a problem....it'll probably take a week or two.

Hey Chrome, attached is the map so far (more roof lines to do), before I do more, are you happy with it, or do you want to make any amendments?

So sorry for the delay!
The map looks great! I really like it. Its going to serve its purpose well.
Thank you so much for your time making this map. If you would like a credit or plug on the main page of my site (dnd.chromesphere.com) please let me know and i will add.

Hi Crom, Glad you like it. The finished version is posted below (it's about 7 inches across at 250 dpi - not sure if you wanted it for print).
I'd love a shout on your site, thanks!

I won't be using it for print. Its just a free online adventure. Still handy having a high DPI image.
I thought the first version was the final version, looks awesome! Thanks so much. I have put a post in my site updates (http://dnd.chromesphere.com/) and will also put a comment below the map on the website (http://dnd.chromesphere.com/Solo_Adventures/Dragonshore_Town/Dragonshore_Town.html) "thanks to Ravells from cartographers guild". Have to update the map on the site to the new version.
Do you have a website you would like me to link to instead or is that ok?
Thanks again! looks fantastic!

A link to my portfolio here would be great !

Will do Ravells!
I really like your worldmap of The Beastlands. The style reminds me of a map that came with a commodore 64 game, might and magic (many years ago). I had it up on my wall for years and used to stare at it for hours.
Thanks again for the map Ravells, its awesome.
