    Default The Deadlands

    A map I did a while back for a story idea I had. Though it shares a name with the RPG, it doesn't have much (intentionally) in common with that, except that it's an alternate history that diverges during the American Civil War.

    Civil war? You mean revolution? Or did England reconquer parts of the US?

    I generally like this. Couple things: the red dots for the cities are rather vibrant compared to the rest of the map (though it does make the locations clear), and is the spelling "DESERET" intentional?

    I think it`s a great map! The word type, the color makes it very Second World War - style. Kudos!

    It's an alternate history; a plague wiped out a huge percentage of the world's population, and 80 years later, Britain is recolonizing part of North America.

    Deseret was the original/proposed name for Utah, when it was basically a Mormon stronghold (as it is on this map).
