So, this is the regional map I'm using in my Points of Light D&D 4e game.

The places named are the places the PCs know about.

It's missing a few touches, but it's sufficient for what we need.

First map using GIMP and the Regional Map Tutorial.

Yay! =)

Nice job on your first map, keep it up and you'll be mapping like a pro in no time :)

Looking good so far Sarkid. By the way, just a little hit regarding your forests, the edges look a tad bit sharp. This was always a problem with the initial tutorial I wrote, but if you read on a bit further in the trees tutorial thread, I've included an additional step which involves making individual trees to cover up the rough edges of the forest. Also, RobA posted a tip about how to make a drop shadow for the forests in case you don't have the "Layer Styles" plugin installed for GIMP. Here's just a couple of before and after pics to give you an example of what individual trees can add.

Cheers,
