    Default Broken Earth: Post-apocalyptic Upper Midwest

    Some time ago I stumbled upon a kickstarter for Broken Earth, a promising post-apo rpg in the vein of Fallout-series. The genre is close to my heart and I naturally bought the game as soon as it came out. In general Broken Earth is great but there is a big flaw with the maps included. They are mushy greyscale affair with little emphasis on usability in the gaming table. The game's core lies in hex-based exploration and community building, both of which need good maps. In order to be able to play the game I needed to make my own maps for the campaign area as well as certain key settlements and sites.

    Presented here is the master map for the campaign area. I kept it real simple with minimalist color scheme, no more than 10 symbols and legend with both name of the site and it's key as presented in the rule book.

    All the work was done on Photoshop.

    Question

    Great work.
    I have recently bought the Broken earth game and was searching the internet for more user friendly/printer friendly maps when i came across your post. I was wondering if you have or are aware of a similar map ( preferably with hexes) of the area but without all the info and icons on it for player use. your map is great for use as the reference map, but for the players exploration i think it would be a shame to give them all the information so easily.

    any help/pointers would be greatfully recieved.
