    Default Mountain Valley - Hagh Grindish

    Hagh-Grindish is a Dwarven fortress set in the Dragon Mountains. It is here where the Book of Tomorrow was crafted by will of King Varulus II.

    This map is centered on a marsh where a particularly nasty ritual took place. The ritual has become a recurring nightmare for the PC's and is the cornerstone for our adventure in Earthdawn. Unfortunately the players are about to find out they'll have to ride out the scourge, leaping through time tied to the Horror, inexorably coming closer to oblivion with each subsequent jump...

    Hope you enjoy as much as I enjoyed making it!

    Thanks guys! I started by gathering source from real-world locations off of Google maps. Stitched about 15 spots together, then did a thorough coloring. I'm afraid I can't take credit for all the minute detail in the terrain, but the composition, color, lighting and extras was all done by hand.

    So it was a collaborative work between you and God. He made the terrain and you made it into a derrivative map.
