    Map historical maps for conquer club (risk like game online)

    drawing for ConquerClub is quite a challenge
    maximum size, gameplay legibility,...
    but also nice because it's not a too heavy workload

    my first two map for them May 2008 January 2009



    then this one October 2008 September 2009


    and also unedited

    Cool maps, especially the second. 'Österkreis'. Funny

    Like the French map. Love the hachured border. I'm gonna have to try this!

    why do you find it funny
    you mean the political division of HRE
    it was some gameplay issue
    I used the actual "kreis" concept which really existed
    and transformed it in a simplified geographical interpretation

    this map is graphically based on historical graphic reference
    the background has an very fainted vertical hatching like some parchment watermark (filigrane)
    the balck and white alternated border was the way to divide longitude and lattitude
    and inside each "region" the hatching is the b/w heraldic code for colours

    The word sounds funny, at least for me as Austrian. Of course I recognized the idea behind it immediately when I looked on the map - I know German and Austrian history very well, including the many concepts and ideas to bring order into the HRE.
