  2. The Land of Illithia

    Hello everyone my name is Sam. I only recently found this website and its community, and so far what I have seen is fantastic! There are so many talented artists here, and just by browsing through maps and drawings alike I feel extremely inspired. I would love to be part of this community, since it is full of people who share my passion for fantasy, storytelling, D&D and my new found hobby, cartography. Below is one of the first maps I've ever created, it is part of a long term D&D project, ...

  3. Learning an Isometric Trick (easier than expected!)

    I had previously thought that there was no hope of sussing out the operations nescessary to wrangle a square grid down onto an axonometric plane.

  5. Ernie's Grids

    Creating a custom coordinate grid can consume alot of time if a noob isn't careful.

    ..I threw caution to the winds.

    I also improved my understanding of the scale of the map.

    Here is the 33 x 33 World grid. Embark sites cannot overlap the borders of this grid (but wordgen sites can, and flaunt it ). Not even with cheats, afaik.
