One of my best!

I cut out the side of a paper bag for the nice brown color. Then (of course) I used Sharpie to detail this map.

If you can't read my shopping-list quality handwriting, the words are as follows:

For the first 400 years of the Empire's existance, Clairnynth remained uninhabited. Crewver, the landing point of the expedition, grew rapidly. Though the forests to the South proved resistant, Tavmin hold control of the Inner Sea. Now, the wild creatures of the Southernmost forests offer challanges to brave explorers. As the Age of Heros dawns, a dark force lurks below the surface.

This map will be featured in my upcoming 10-day adventure. Each day I'll take one of my best maps. The story (two-three pages a day) will fit around the map. The story itself is about the rise of Satan. If you're interested, the first day is next Saturday (5/11/2013)

Thanks for looking. Feel free to offer suggestions, praise, and likes! :D

This is great! I'm inspired! I just cut a piece off a cereal box and I'm grabbing my sharpies... we'll see where it goes. I really like your layout with the key and description.

cheers,
Meshon

Good luck!

Use ultra-fine tipped sharpies for the best result. I use a ruler almost as much as I use the sharpie - most lines are made with the ruler. The continent shape is the only exception to that rule - I go nuts with that.

I wanted to do the outside of the whole paper-bag (a map bag!). That would've looked cool, but I had to cut out a section small enough for my scanner. I went as big as I could. When/if you're done, I'd love to see it!

Wow! I wouldn't mind making a Minecraft map after this!

Sounds cool. I haven't got into minecraft, but I've seen some of the stuff people do there, and it can be amazing! :)
