View Full Version : WIP - Lands by the Wall

07-04-2013, 06:35 PM
Hello folks!

Not much of a WIP since I'm almost complete, but I still have some small things to do...
This is a map over a region in the Silver Marches - Forgotten Realms. It's made for my gaming group where they're going to play explorers/settlers/adventurers.

I'm still going to add some more forest, and problaly remake the forest.

What do you think?

I like it. The way to do hills is very effective . Colours are nice, in special the mountains white. In my opinion, the forest is the weak spot cause is too thick, always in my modest view :)

That's pretty damn great. I envy your players; with handouts like that, they are definitely spoiled. :D

Looking amazing!

I like it so far! I'd suggest breaking up the border of the forest a little bit. Also add the odd pair of trees here and there. Are the two lakes meant to not drain out via a river? The break between the plans and the mountains at the bottom seems pretty severe. I like how the map seems to have a focus with the corners and tops of mountains seeming to be less defined and foggy. It's a very nice effect!

Thanks all! Yeah the forest is really weak. Going to remake it, though I want it to look thick and intimidating. :)

Nice job Obbehobbe but yea forests should probably be re-worked to fit the map well.

Really beautiful, I like the peaceful atmosphere it's got. Honestly I don't think the forest looks bad or odd at all, it just ends a bit abruptly, but it's very thick and intimidating, as you wanted it to be. But if you do rework it you could probably make it even better :D

Yeah, I don't mind the forest either. It adds to the atmosphere IMO having it end like that - a big, forbidding wall of DOOM! :D

Now I like the forest better, and I've added some more icons and names. :)

Amazing map, Obbehobbe! I can't wait for what's going to happen to it next!

Small update!
Adding GM map legend (muddle's legend from this forum). My plan is that the players are going to play some sandbox exploration adventures. But I'm a bit uncertain how many icons I shall add before and if I should save some features for in-game. Also, if a pack of wolf cover in an old ruin. Would you place a "monster" icon (for the wolves) or a "ruin" icon for the ruin. Or both?


Thanks! :)

It looks great, what did you use to make it?...
what kind of gaming group do you play?...
