    Map [GIMP]Snurre Ironbelly's Hall (level 1) 'old school blue'

    I recreated the first level of G3 Hall of the Fire Giant King, using GIMP a while back and thought I'd post it here.

    Looking nice.I'd like to see you try your hand at "non-old school" battlemaps.

    Thanks. I'm kind of an old school guy, but if you have some examples of what you would like to see, I'm sure I could give it a whirl! :-)

    I think he means take the outline you have at the moment and add textures and add more to it. But very nice old school map. I myself getting caught up with adding objects and stuff to my maps that I forget simplicity is always good.

    Oh I'm not asking for anything special, just something with colors as the more battlemaps the merrier (and as I can't give my player's old-school cause they've got used to NeonKnights amazing H2 maps)

    Edit: And again I have been hijacked by the forum ninja.Amazing(And what geamon said is what I mean)

    Yeah, I could do some minor exterior work on my other map (The Golgatha of Al-Serlin), like some slightly faded out trees and shrubs around the walls, maybe a road leading up to the gates, etc. This particular map, however, is a reproduction of the original by Gary Gygax. I wanted to see how close I could make GIMP look like the original TSR production.

    Ha, I just noticed that the map scale says "1 square + 10'" instead of "1 square = 10"). Oh well, this was an early endeavor...

    @ Druvas: That's what I figured you wanted to give it authenticity.

    @Avengeil: Should I give pillow man a bandanna for my avatar?

    Excellent work !! brings back fond (well not so fond at the time.. ) memories of that adventure. I'm loving the old school blue too !!

    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.
