    Map The World of Rysylis

    Hello, everyone. I've finished all the maps for my homebrew world. After much consideration, I decided to go with more "Viking Age" settlement names (since the setting is closer to the Viking Age than the Middle Ages). The maps were all hand drawn, except for the text and border which was done in Photoshop. Comments welcome.

    More information on the setting can be found at my website: http://www.rysylis.webs.com.

    Nice work, man.

    Very Nice !! repped

    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.

    I loves me some hand-drawn maps. Awesome job.

    Don't be shocked, these are great looking maps. Simple is beautiful. Looks like a map that you could find in the front of a novel.

    Again - don't be surprised - these are very nice work! There's nothing wrong - your style works well, and the various elements hang together just right. I do find myself wanting a scale - particularly if as you imply on the website, Linden is much smaller than the main continent. And even a simple outline placement of the two landmasses on a world map of some sort would help us visualize the difficulty or ease of the Linden emigration. If you haven't decided if these land masses are *all* there is to you your world, you can note a large swath of the locator world map as terra (oceanus?) incognita. Repped, with my #000 brush of repping.
