I will map the Dwarven fortress of Jung-Fiordin (hex P 10) from the Pritior map.


My idea is that this gargantuan fortress was once planned and built by an ancient dwarf race. The modern dwarves live in and use the fortress, but are hardly able to construct something similar of this scale.

I like the dwarf zip-lines. I'm picturing John Rhys-Davies going down one shouting "And my steeeeeeeeeeeeel!!!" :D

These are cable cars - much quicker to go from one bastion to another than using the tunnels.

Well there was mention of this...




Each entry must contain each of the following:

2) The hex number of the map in which the point of interest is found;



But otherwise looks great to me. A very solid entry.

A few variation/details on fortress colors to make it less "flat" maybe.

Indeed. I'll update the map.


Very nice

I had already considered this, but rejected the idea - the material of the fortress itself had been rendered red, it's no painted colour. That's at least what I had in mind when I made the concept for this month's challenge.
Maybe I can add some dirt patches.

I played around with contrast and brightness of the different parts of the fortress, I hope it has now more depth.

This is a very cool map! The color and contrast look fine.

Can you imagine riding a cable car that high up that is built with medieval technology?
