View Full Version : My first map for public consumption

11-10-2008, 11:17 PM
I've always loved drawing maps, but since they were always meant for my own reference (for D&D campaigns and the like), I was always more interested in making them functional than "pretty".

This is the first time I've worked on a map that I intended other people to actually look at -- some friends and I just started a little online collaborative writing/freeform RPG project and I volunteered to handle mapping duty.

This is very much a WIP; since we're doing most of our worldbuilding on the fly, I'll be adding features to the map as people invent them in their story posts.

Pretty nice. I especially like the color scheme. The fonts work pretty well too. Nothing I would change so I grant thee a "Nice Job".

Nice first post - welcome to the Guild! (unless you've been a lurker) :P

Posting a map with your first post is always a very cool thing, and nice job too. I'm in agreeance with Ascension all the way! Have some REP.

I'll throw in my agreement with Ascension & GP - nice job and a first post with a map always deserves a little thrashing with my cudgel of repping.

I dub thee newly repped *bonk*

This is a very good looking map. I like the simplicity in design, and the overall color scheme and style. Keep it up!

I also like the colour scheme and the font choice. The label on the hills is a bit small for my old eyes to read, though...

Awesome, functionality over design, yet still looks nice! I'ld like to see it progress, so whenever you add more to it, be sure to keep us updated!

Thank you for the kind words, everyone. I'll be sure to keep updating as new stuff gets added.
