This is the city of Castran the greatest city in the North and Capital of Kardoma.
Still have a lot of things I want to add to it.

Dude that map is freaking awesome. I must know what techniques you used. I just love the feel and style of it. The layout conveys the size of it very nicely. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Lovely City. Great sense of diversity and scale.

Good job!

That looks great...I've got to learn how to place buildings like that. Excellent stuff.

Oh my gosh! I am in love with this map. This is what I have always tried to achieve, but never have done!

This is an awesome map Zong ! What I like the most is the way the buildings are positioned. There is just the right balance between it being crowded and it spilling over the edges of the natural borders and to oppose that there's a little bit of spaces in the city to keep it interesting. Its the most natural layout of a city I think I have seen on these boards.

It looks like it was done with CD3 and yet at the same time there are elements in there that make it look like it was done more manually. Your gonna tell us next that its all actually in 3D with sketchup or something like that yes ?

You can do world maps and cities so I think your well set to map your campaign world out to a very high level of quality.

Repped - obviously...

Absolutely gorgeous! Hands down one of the finest city maps I have seen ever... and I have been a collector of old city maps from history and games since 1974. Kudos!!!

Bloody gorgeous!!! And big.....really big.... I dread to think how many hours you've spent on it. I get the feeling that every one of those buildings has been individually drawn.

I think you should name one of the gates to the docks 'Port Port'...^^

I really like this! I myself am a fan of the white-building motif; would love to see a finished product.

amazing! love this map so clean and easy to read yet the little details like the graveyards and such give it a sense of a real and naturally developed city.
