    Default The Wreck of the Goodwife, or the Ships' Graveyard

    Back in the January Challenge I had to withdraw my entry as the map had been purchased. It was bought by Open Design and made the back cover in full colour of Kobold Quarterly 13. It also appeared in the underwater adventuring supplement Sunken Empires and as a map pack in the Kobold Quarterly store. Now all of those have hit the shelves I'm free to post it here!

    The printed map:

    and the full scale map:
    The Wreck of the Goodwife, or the Ships' Graveyard-undertheseaweb.jpg

    Here's the original WIP thread:

    Here's the original challenge thread:
    http://www.cartographersguild.com/sh...ip-s-Graveyard

    These are the versions cropped for the guild. If you would like the version scaled at 100px per inch for print or use in a vtt then I recommend grabbing the map pack from the KQ store. I don't get a share of that money, that's a fully KQ product.

    Absolutely beautiful piece of work. I love the colors and the details. Makes me drool!

    That is incredibly cool, Torstan ... and don't let tilt pick on ya too much. You may do water often, but you do it better than just about anyone else

    Well he's picking on me because I mentioned a high level adventure idea with lots of water - and this is the map I used for that adventure idea. So really it's only one lot of water.

    Thanks for all the compliments - much appreciated. It's just a shame I wasn't able to hold onto this map long enough to enter it into the January contest!

    Yeah this is really sweet. I love the look and hope to someday be able to do something that looks as good.
