View Full Version : The Mystic Common

So, I've begun recreating the maps I had made for my first fantasy novel. Here is a bit of background knowledge for this map.

Mystic Realm – A completely lucid alternative reality, entered into as one falls asleep. Any two realms are never alike, their environments created by creatures who react to thoughts and feelings. Those who dwell on misfortune can expect terrifying surroundings, filled with those who intend to inflict pain on the sleeper. Two dreamers can only intercept one another’s realm through the use of unlawful rare magic.

When a dreamer intercepts anothers Mystic Realm, they both enter The Mystic Common, a most terrifying one-continent realm.

This is the map for that realm.


This is my first proper map creation, comments are most welcome.

nice story concept... and nice map - my only critique would be that the land it self is a little glossy - I'd dampen that so it looks more rough (the thumb looks great) :)

Thanks Tilt,

I've tried making it look less shiny by removing some of the whiteness. It's a lot darker now though, I don't know which I prefer. I've also changed the template around the map a bit.
Any suggestions how I would dampen it?

I love the story idea. Nice map and good work toning down the gloss.
