Hi all...

In my presentation post, I showed you our world campaign map WIP.
Some ask if it's possible to reduce the size... Well... Quite impossible for the lot of details meld in "Berkh patches"...

Apologizing, I choose to show you smaller parts...
So this is "Le Margraviat d'Ulmareich"... Where all started back in 1984...
Of course, as you can imagine, when I begin to "play with Fractal mapper", this land was the starting and center point of my world building WIP
Of course the map was not exactly the same as 25 years ago... But in the great lines, all the main sites are still.

I also choose to draw the map in "the mood of the first Forgotter Realms Maps" (save the releif) for cleraness...

Finishing this post, I wish you a very very very happy new year...

Enjoy

This looks great! Was this also done in Fractal Mapper? The hills Looks like FM8's bevel, but the relief work on the "flat" terrain looks really nice, too.

I really like the clear informative feel. It gives the impression of an atlas. Also its clear and gets the point across nicely. Well done.

Yes, also done with fractal mapper8. I'd like, someday, to try a map with gimp... But, by now, I'm not enough " l'aise" with this software.

Thx for your feed back Torq. Actually, it's always a challenge to balance and mix informations between reality, playability and look.
