    Post Glorantha Dragon Lands - by Darran

    Map (Click to enlarge)



    Created in: Hand drawn

    Review

    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.

    Dollhouse Syndrome = The temptation to turn a map into a picture, obscuring the goal of the image with the appeal of cute, or simply available, parts. Maps have clarity through simplification.

    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.

    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.
