    Praise City of Galastan by Blaidd Drwg

    This is Blaidd Drwg's second consecutive Cartographers Choice Award, following quick on the heels of his majestic Val Nevan map. One look at this map though and there's no doubt why. It is exceptionally rare to find such lovely work being done in traditional mediums here at the Guild.

    Thanks guys, (and admins, too!)
    Colour me honoured and happy.

    Dang, I'm starting to feel a bit guilty about not being terribly active on the Guild Forum :\

    Heheheh, well ... I'm working working on a commission at the moment, but I'm not going to post anything about that until it's done and have permission to do so. And I'll be starting on a world map for my LARP group soon (once the gm's sent me some sketches). But that's not really what I meant. I would like to be more active in general, looking at/talking about other people's work. But this site is so slow sometimes ... It sort of ruins the fun, because I'm quite impatient when it comes to waiting for web pages to load. I spend more time on DeviantArt, because of that. I wonder if anyone else has the same problem?

    It has, now that you mention it. Was there a change when I wasn't looking? Not complaining, though

    Yes, big change, our server was improperly configured before unbeknownst to me...it crashed, and got restored to a new server and then properly configured...should be much better now.

    This is perfect. I came here hoping for a city map, as I am seriously artistically challenged, and this is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you for providing the map for my next game!
