    Map Ebontide. Iterations 1 and 2

    Hey! I am new to the forums. Here are my two ridiculously over-sized maps.

    A few months ago I started making a DND campaign.
    I wanted to make a map of the game world. The idea was that players would be able to go anywhere they wanted. Even if it was not part of the story. I wanted players to have a homeland to go back to. Things like that. It needed to display a sense of scale.
    So following tutorials, starting with this one I began making a semi realistic, large world map. I used so many and selected methods from some and not others. I would be unable to list them all.
    Eventually I created this.
    (Images are thumbnails. Use the links to download the original images. Warning some are hefty in size.) (I am so sorry ;-; )

    Map 1 (named version)

    It was a long process, but I eventually finished it and used a site called Umapper to add locations.
    Though eventually I began to feel that the whole map was... small. The more I worked on it the more I began to feel it was more like a small continent than a world.
    The problem was I couldn't make it any bigger or my photoshop would split at the seams. All the bevel and texture filters were turning out to be really intensive.

    So I decided to go simple but big. Used another tutorial for an old style map and eventually created something I felt matched the scale of what I was after. Used a number of map symbol brushes from around here and the web.

    The brushes I used can be found here, here and here, including some of Schwarzkreuz's brushes. I also used this font for some details.

    If you want to see it in all it's glory. I give you the fancy > ZOOMIFY VERSION <
    If you want the zoomify version to host. You will need to message me.

    Map 2 (blank version)
    Map 2 (clean version)

    And yes, you can use these non commercially if you wish to! Huzzah!

    Welcome to the Guild. Since you're also using stuff from one of our member (Schwarzkreuz), you might want to credit him aswell.
