It has been 20 years since the great wizard kings of Glindor set their kingdom afloat and ascended to the
heavens. When this remarkable feat of magic was performed, a great scar was left behind on the surface of
the world. This scar, the so-called Demon Rift, gave rise to an unholy tide of demons surging forth from the
underworld. Kingdoms have fallen, old allegiances have crumbled; the world of Serantum is a grim and
dangerous place.

Spanning the western coast of the Rift Sea and ruled over by the benevolent King Archibold III, the kingdom
of Auctoria is a bastion of civilization, one of the few remaining places of relative safety in a ruined world. This is where our story begins.

I Created this map for a new Dungeons & Dragons campaign I'll be running in the near future. Comments and critique welcome!

Created with pen, paper and photoshop

*ALmost* makes me want to play D&D... almost... not quite :P


I really like this map... like foremost said, it's clean and simple. It *looks* like a bastion of civilization. :P



EDIT: Also, your blog link is not working. And your 3 pigs comic scared me :(

A great map, especially if it is intended as a player handout (it would certainly get me in the mood for exploration).

Thanks!

It is indeed a player handout; hoping to fire up their imaginations and get them eager to explore my world.

What others have already said, clean, simple and engaging. As I player I'd love to get my hands on this and explore =).

I hope this isn't a faux pas given I posted this in finished maps, but...

because this map is designed as a handout for the players in my D&D game, I decided to give it more texture to look like a worn weathered document that exists within the campaign world. I'm curious if you guys like it or if you think it detracts from the map.

cheers,

Lovely map rwaluchow. You did a great job with the colours (something I'm hesitant to try on my own wip just yet!). And Wolfstone, Darkenwald, and Ravengard are great names for locations! :) I hope those players get a kick out of using your map for their D&D game.
