    Thanks Veldehar! OK, final image. Here's the surface level. Obviously it is not entirely to scale, but the barrow exteriors should more or less line up with the barrow interiors of the first level. On a side note, I now have an Intuos 5 and this is the first chance I've been able to put it to use in a map. Hopefully it will see more action in the months ahead.

    Cheers,

    I love these... If I look at it long enough I can smell the copier we used to use to make duplicates of maps back in the day. I can remember how excited I would get knowing it was getting close to game night. I can taste the stale chips and the flat cola and see the faces of my first players and oldest friends. Thank you arsheesh such a simple map but such a powerful thing.....

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

    That is exactly what I am hoping to recapture in my campaign. Thanks for the encouragement.

    The style and colour of the surface map brought back to mind those Basic and Expert edition modules. If that was the aim then you nailed it !

    I was aiming for the old TSR style maps. I am only vaguely aware of the differences between the Holmes, the B/X and the BECMI editions however, so I wasn't shooting for anything as fine grained as the style of maps of "X" edition. Still, it's nice to know that I am more or less on target.
