Hi all,
I'm going to call this one finished. Thanks for all who commented in the WiP thread (link (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?11592-WIP-Battlemaps-for-Curse-of-the-Emperor-s-Stone...)).

This is a battlemap for my upcoming adventure, Curse of the Emperor's Stone. The map depicts the House of the Four Winds, the site of the adventure's climactic encounter: a glorious three-way battle between the Sifeng (Four Winds) monks, the Lushou, and the Zhaodaozhe (Seekers of the Way)...oh yeah, and the PCs...in the middle of a growing monsoon.

Hope you like it!

Cool! The roof tiles look great!

Beautiful! I especially love the trees!
You also kept attention at the shape of the shadows ... really nice! Inspiring...
One day I'll be as good as this ...but just for one day :/

Looks great, mearrin. Where did you get the roof tiles? I stumbled over a website a few days ago with plenty of roof tiles but I can't remember which and didn't bookmark it.

Thanks. I *think* they're from www.imageafter.com. Modified pretty extensively if so, as none of their textures are ready for tiling right out of the box. I'll send you my tileable texture if you want it.

May I suggest you to post it here? Many people around here (who said me?) would probably kill to get them :P
Well ... pleeease! ;)

Thank you, mearrin, for the link.
In the meantime I found the site again: http://rpgmapshare.com/

You're welcome. It's a great site and no restrictions on use. Have to check out your link.

BTW, the tile image I used is attached. Actually, now, I'm not sure what it's from. Maybe Genetica? It's not from a photo. I also threw in a PSD with a tileable wooden shingle texture. That one, I believe *is* from www.imageafter.com. Feel free to use them both as desired.

I'm gonna use them right away!

Very realistic! Players will drool over it! (and probably die ingame after that! XD)
