I started playing around with this the other night, its based off of a map of the Battle of Alexandria - I just thought the land shape was really neat.

I like the way it's coming along, but I'm just not sure what to do with it at this point - do I make a regional map out of it, a city map, etc?

I'm open to suggestions - so let me have 'em. :)

Def city map there imo.
Or my favourite. A big ass fort with cannons!
Or do something totally off the grid, a sci-fi colony with a space port!

The fort isn't a bad idea, I need 4 of them for my little piece of the CWBP. Hmmm... have to give that some serious thought.

OK, just playing around a bit with this today...

Added a scale at the bottom, an area of richer, deeper grass, and some towers in various spots just to see if I like them.

Still kind of undecided on what to do with it.

I like the idea of a fortified city state. Was my first though seeing this. Something like Morocco, the only fertile area at the edge of the desert sort of thing. And with a natural harbor like that it should have an awesome navy. 8)

Just bristling with cannon ofc. ;)

Yeah, I'm definitely leaning towards a fortified city or a big fortress/military compound. Still not quite sure yet.

Fortified city would be awesome.

Looking forward to see what you do with this, SG. Looking good so far.

I've go to get some anti-psychotics drugs from the doc. Every time someone posts a map with a shape with a big nice bay and two or more thin strips of land around the bay, I always see some kind of mutant monster shape.... I guess this one is a bit less monstrous than the dinosaur one from 6 months back....

OK, I'm suffering from some severe idea blockage. Nothing I've tried in the past couple of days was worth a spit.

I need something to give me a "jump start" on this.

I have nothing. I'm also very dry at the moment.

The great naval port city that is now in shambles thanks to an obnoxious wizard who brought down the great orb that circled the planet! Now it must be rebuilt...refuge camps on the side, a wizard tower in the outskirts, large chunks of debris scattered throughout the country side, and maybe a few standing ruins! And dirty debris filled water...

@Towser - Some good ideas there - just have to find time to get back to this one too.

Have you noticed that I've been posting a lot and not doing any mapping recently ;)
