Created in: Hand drawn


This map by Darran has caught a few people's eyes and it's a handdrawn beauty. It's a RuneQuest map of a part of Glorantha and I doubt that it could have been made using software.

It is the view of many in the Guild that regardless of the software at our disposal, a map drawn by hand is hard to beat for personality and this is a perfect example.

I edited the OP. It appears that the board has case sensitive filenames, so I just modified the URL to change the case of the map name.

Thanks guys.

I have just noticed this on the front page now.
I'll get the next version of the map posted up tomorrow along with a few different ways of representing the marsh.

In the nineteenth century, Victor Hugo described Bacharach as a 'land of fairy tales, ... the soft-spoken king of Dragon Pass, the talented Steffen 'Stormbringer' ... Greg sent greetings and some new Gloranthan readings from his current home in ... Darren Sims, and a very suspect bunch of usuals for 'Beak No Eval', ..

Huh? I've read that three times and I still don't understand it. :$

And to stay on topic, I love this map. Really wonderful artwork. :)
