View Full Version : Middangeard - Almost a complete map

This is actually my first post, (and my first map) but I have been working on this map for some time. I had set it down for awhile but recently decided to fill in the rest of the towns, roads and some general geographic info.

I'm not sure about the reality of the thing to be honest. I started out with working on something that I guessed to be about 1px = 1mi (1px=2mi for online version). I have a 5000px wide map that essentially would take about 4 months to cross by horseback if you rode straight through (using 3.5e rules).

The map is for a world I would like to DM a dnd game in at some point.

I am pretty new to this, so let me know about thoughts. I followed someone's tutorial to start the thing, but I don't remember who at this point cause I did most of it some time ago.

Here it is:

WOW...the land masses and the texturing/colors are fantastic !! The only thing that kind of feels "off" to me is the roads and the location markers. They don't fit with the style of the map. I think this would be better served with a different sort of marker (maybe a few beveled squares surrounded by a wall) also the roads are incredibly wide at this scale I'd make them narrower and lower the opacity of them some. All in all a great first map (I wish mine had looked this good) Have some rep :)

Welcome to the Guild dzfast. I'm in complete agreement with JT. The Land-mass looks fabulous but neither the style nor the coloring scheme of the location markers seems in congruent with the look and feel of the map. Still, it is a lovely map so far.
