    The sense of dilapidation in this dungeon is very well depicted. The floors are cracked and discoloured, the walls are pitted and dried blood stains on drainage grilles speak of a history of suffering in this dank and sorded place. The texture work in this map is superb as are the colour choices.

    Yeah.

    I was looking at a map in a book the other day and thought "wait a second, the guys at Cartographers Guild can produce maps way better than this".

    I think that these people should be getting paid for what they do!

    Thanks for the comments guys. I think in the books they keep their maps intentionally simple so that you can interpret it any way you like. And also, it cuts down on costs and time.

    It's probably about money...it is a business after all. The maps we all make are because we love to make them and therefore spend a lot of time on them. That time means more labor hours and higher costs. Then there's is the cost of printing, too. Simple = fast = cheap. If I got paid the same thing for my maps as what I get for stained glass per hour then my maps would go for a couple of thousand dollars. I don't think there'd be too many companies willing to fork that out but I keep hoping that EA, Sony, or one of those big boys will come knocking
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
