Hello Explorers!

I've been exploring various bits of the Nentir Vale (AD&D 4E) over here:

http://dandddoodles.blogspot.com/

Winterhaven in particular has gotten some abuse.

As long as I'm riffing off of D&D I guess I won't be posting any finished maps, but I'd love to get some feedback nonetheless. :)

Yours in isometricity,

Crazyred

Already been over - and they are very good indeed. You should post them here (the site allows for filehosting here and it's certainly encouraged).

You can attach them directly using the attachments manager at the top of the advanced editing controls. Also, I see no reason why inspiration from D&D stops you from posting finished maps? You're interpreting a world, not ripping off copyright.

I love your Winterhaven.

Your work puts me in mind of the sort of thing I've come to expect from Steve Jackson Games. I don't know if you doodle professionally, but if you ever wanted to do some freelancing, I bet you might have a shot there.

Thanks for the boosts guys! :) Hopefully they might be something you could actually use!

I do remember Steve Jackson games, although I haven't thought of them in years. Didn't they publish Illuminati, the card game? Loved that game....Thanks for the tip!

Yep, that's the company. They also publish Munchkin, which is of what your drawings reminded me.

edit: And I've already inserted Winterhaven into my MapTool campaign file, so have some rep!

A couple more maps over at my blog; the NW quadrant of Fallcrest and the Barony of Harkenwold. Check 'em out, won't you? =)

I'm about to start the clean-up on Fallcrest. Any constructive criticism (do they call it PEACH?) I'd appreciate. :)

PS. I'd also appreciate any tips on how to post thumbs to the forums.....

When you post, you need to click the Go Advanced button and look for the paperclip icon in the upper icon bar, near the middle to the right of the smiley face. Click that to open a popup window. You can either a) upload from a file on your machine or b) from a URL. File size is around 4.5 mb for png or jpeg and pixel depth is around 30 million pixels or so (IIRC). You can add up to 5 images per post and if you wish to insert any images "inline", you can do so by clicking the down arrow beside the paper click and you can select the specific image to put in and it will put a tag with an id where your cursor is located.

Oh wow. Now that really is a bit nice. I like the subtly different colours in the shadows. That's a style I could look at for a long time.

Gorgeous! Haha I really don't know what else to say. I just hope that I can come even close to this by the end of my visualization studies in school.

Fallcrest with color and key. I still need to noodle with it, add some labeling, more keys, but for now this'll do.

The Fallcrest map is wonderful. I like the style, very "comic-like".

Beautiful. You should REALLY post it on the Wizard's Board. Who knows, they may through some work your way.
