A while back I promised to create a tutorial for my map of Eriond. I have finally made good on that promise here (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?18280-Eriond-A-Tutorial-for-GIMP-amp-Wilbur&p=182420#post182420). In the process of writing that tutorial, I created this map. Since I don't have any particular use for it myself, I thought I'd make it available to anyone out there who would like to use it (e.g. for a RPG campaign or setting). The map is licensed under Creative Commons and the only right which I have reserved is that if you use it in any published or online capacity that you acknowledge that I am the artist responsible for the piece.

Cheers,

I approve of your free map :) it looks nice. I'd approve even more if the seas looked warmer and more inviting! :P

Oh, and the large south-eastern lake seems to have a strange river/canal system at its southern end.

Great map. very dramatic color patterns! Actually it is the 2 northwestern lakes that the rivers going in and out of them that needs to be fixed. Minor details though, overall really well done.

Thanks guys. About the rivers, they were generated using Wilbur, and I don't know of a way to control placement of them. So unfortunately I'm not sure how to correct for any strange river systems that might appear.

Decided to play around with this and turn it into an older style map.

Offering a creative commons free map is very generous, thank you. The map is lovely, and so is the sepia toned version. It won't work for my current campaign, but if I use it in the future, you can bet that I will give all kinds of credit back to you.

Thanks. There's lots of other folks here who have offered there maps as free resources via a creative commons license as well. BTW, don't I know you from the Obsidian Portal?

I very much like the shape of those continents. Both maps are beautiful! I love this style you have developed and am hoping to try out your Eriond Tutorial in the future. :)

Two of my favourite things: free beer and free maps :D
But mostly thanks for the tutorial! I know how I'm going to spend my Sunday, now.

I recently needed a "Lost Continent" for my Pathfinder Homebrew Game. When I showed the players the map I planned on using they were immediately drawn into exploring the wilderness, I didn't even need to give them an adventure hook. Thanks for offering the community the use of your map.

My pleasure Kildairem, I'm glad my work was useful for your campaign, and that your players enjoyed exploring it.

i love the newer 'sepia' version, which is very ool, and nice shape too. the noise looks a bit too sharp to me though. nevertheless, very nice and generous too :)

I think you are right about the noise V. If I ever attempt a similar map in the future I'll keep that in mind.
