People have asked for more of my old Pen-n-Paper maps, so here is the collected maps for the Kingdom of Shimark.

Attached is the pen-n-Paper version, I will update later with the CC3 version (on a different PC).

Here are the two major cities of the Kindom, the City of Glandor (I think it should be in my Big City Thread), and the city of Seawharf (Yes I spelled it seaworf in the past - D'oh!). As an Aside, a CC2 version of Seawharf can be found on Profantasy's Map Catalog page.

And more....(Oh, the village of Milf was renamed due to the current meaning for M.I.L.F. :()

Additionally, the village of Seawind is my player's Current Base of Operations.

Holy cow! Thanks Neonknight. Glandor and Seawharf, like all your cities, look great and the Dwarven Halls make for an interesting dungeon location--although I suspect you probably burned out a black marker or two illustrating them ;)

Awesome maps as always, but one of my players was browsing this thread just before me.

His comments, "Dude, there's a town called MILF, I wanna go there!"

My response, "Beware, it's just before you get to the dangerous Lair of the Cougar Goddess."

I'll spare you the rest of that discussion.

Yep, the joys of "Hey it was a cool name 20 years ago!" to "Aww Man, now it means something else :("

NeonKnight - I have to say, I was a map drawing fool in my younger days, but you were PROLIFIC. You have maps posted all over this site!

I really like both Glandor and Seawharf.

One question: In both of those maps, you have several (100+ each) buildings/locations numbered. Did you actually write material for each of the numbered locations? If so, again, PROLIFIC.

No, while I numbered out 100+ places, they were simply just locations/idea markers.

For example, the following is the first 30 locations for Seawharf:

1. Castle Tradsed (Summer residence)
2. Jails and Courts
3. Noble Quarter
4. Market Square
5. Temple of Baeline
6. Temple of Sarlin
7. Temple of Zarlan
8. Temple of Lyra
9. Temple of Lupichina, Magicians Guild/Boarding House
10. Temple of Sael
11. North Road Inn (tavern/inn) (good/moderate)
12. Sleeping Sprite (inn) (excellent/expensive)
13. The Black Hat (tavern/inn) (fair/moderate)
14. The Blushing Mermaid (tavern/inn) (fair/cheap)
15. City Center Tavern (tavern/inn) (excellent/expensive)
16. The Dead Orc (tavern/inn) (poor/cheap)
17. The Happy Fool (brothel/gambling hall) (good/clean/moderate)
18. Dark Gate Inn (tavern/inn) (good/moderate)
19. Card Sharks (gambling hall/tavern/inn) (good/moderate)
20. Dead Man's Chest (gambling hall/tavern) (good/cheap)
21. The Sinking Ship (gambling hall/tavern/inn) (excellent/expensive)
22. Sailor's Port (tavern/inn) (poor/cheap)
23. Myera's (brothel) (clean/excellent/moderate)
24. Wealth & Wenches (gambling hall/brothel) (unclean/good/cheap)
25. Lyra's Beauty (tavern/inn) (good/moderate)
26. Cala's Warm Beds (inn) (excellent/expensive)
27. The Roast Boar (tavern) (excellent/moderate)
28. Sarlin's Retreat (tavern/inn) (good/cheap)
29. Demon's Ire (gambling hall/tavern) (good/cheap)
30. Warrior's Rest (inn) (poor/moderate)

As can bee seen, for businesses, I usually labeled them with 2 to 3 descriptors to describe first (if neccessary), how clean/filthy they were (with relation to the 'escorts'), second was the quality of the goods/services, and finally the price.

Once the list got down to businesses (Agin from Seawharf):

60. Nek's Wagons (wainwright/excellent/moderate/honest)
61. Good Cabinets (cabinet maker:good/moderate/honest)
62. Kila's Rugs and Weaving (good/cheap/honest)
63. Fine Furnishins (good/expensive/honest)
64. Locks and Keys (good/moderate/honest)
65. Bolg's Leather Goods (excellent/moderate/honest)
66. Seaworf Pawn Shop (fence:poor/cheap/deceitful)
67. Sedina' Fabrics (good/moderate/honest)
68. Filo's Woodworking (carpenter:excellent/expensive/honest)
69. Zoln's Lumber (good/moderate/honest)
70. Farmer's Market (good/moderate/honest)

I would describe the business with 3-4 ratings.

1: Type of business (if not already in business name)
2: quality of goods/service)
3: price
4: honesty of business

And, of course, some businesses were detailed in some adventures I ran.

That's a great way for a time-limited DM to give himself just a few hints for how a location will be if his players choose to stop there. Nice.
