I am running a DND adventure in a town called Charity. I am looking for a detailed map of the entire town. I want it to be somewhat Gothic/Victorian in appearance, and Lovecraftian in mood and tone.

I have a very long history as a DM and have made hundreds of maps, and dozens of great maps in my 30 years of playing DND, so I will be a bit particular about the outcome. For this reason, I am only looking for professionals who have a bit of a portfolio, and some references.

I respect hard work and am prepared to pay for quality.

I have many sketches and some history of the town to get you started, but I expect that there will be a bit of collaboration in this project.

I have a HARD DEADLINE of October 30th for the complete product to be done and in my mail box.


Style

I have been searching for content for inspiration or for blatant piracy for months for this project. The only stuff I came up with was some 'Gloomwrought' maps from 4ed DND. I actually have this map, and like both sides (the City and the Battlemap), but it isn't right for my campaign. There is lots of artwork and map images that accompanies a googling of 'Gloomwrought'.

Specifically, I want a Jacobean-Victorian-looking town, that looks like it could have been cut right from 1750's England.

Here are some real buildings that inspire me;

Some of those are actually Jacobean, rather than Victorian, but you get the picture.

Over all of this there is to be a darkness, as though we are looking at the map at twilight in early November.
