    Default Halle - fantasy viking town

    This is my latest finished map. It is the town Halle, the capital in a viking inspired country named Jourdashur. I made the map for the Erebaltor.se site, a place where the old Swedish RPG setting from the late 80's and early 90's is kept alive. The map is made in CD3 and Photohsop. Hope you like it.

    Looks nice though there's some styles gap between the overall town and some elements ( buildings 1, 6, walls surroundings buildings 2 and pontons) that makes some lack of consistency imo. Also I would have made the title capitalized to fit the parchment shape.

    Thanks for the comments, and Max the symbols that differ from the other are in stone and are supposed to do that, maybe it isn't perfect but the idea was to make them differ a bit. Still thanks for your constructive critique it is always appreciated.

    Haha that is funny. However i didn't make the name up myself, its been called that since the Ereb Altor world book was released in the late 80's.

    Looks great Clericon. However it seems odd to me to number locations on a map unless you are intending on adding a legend that details what these numbers refer to. Otherwise looks good though.

    Cheers,

    That is true, but the map was a commission for the site erebaltor.se, so someone else will do that in the text whenever they release the PDF for the country Jourdashur, some time in the future.
