    Map My first fantasy map collection

    Hello everyone im posting my first maps, I've lurking the site for a good time. Now it's time to show what i've learn from the tutorials i found here. There was so many tutorials that I read, that's impossible do credit by names. I'd like to thank everyone who help each other here.

    By the way, my maps are for me to use in a RPG campaign, i donw know the world's name yet, and most of the names in the map are in portuguese, my mother language, most of the names on the old styled map are Random names but the seas have names like "torment seas" or "Endless Ocean"

    Here they go. I like to have some opnions about everything, from the world desing to the grafic level.
    This is the real geografic view.


    The "players" version.


    Political and routes of trade.


    Varies from 80ºC (redest) to -20ºC (pinkiest)

    I like! Very well done. The players will love you.

    Would you give permission for others to use the map as well?

    Very nice map, just one thing, you seem to have put deserts along your equator, assuming your world is somewhat similar to earth, which it seems to be judging by your temperature map, the equator should be filled with jungles, not deserts. On the other hand the areas where one usually finds deserts right above the and below the tropic equator you have green areas.

    Anyway, nice map.

    The desert thing is my fault...that's the way I have it in my tutorial. You're right about the deserts being on the tropics but I have never updated the tutorial with that info.

    That's quite true. Thank's for the advice!

    Hahaa! It was your tutorial? Nice one! Congratulations. I've never thought about right places for the zones. But hey. it' a magical world, who knows what the gods where thinking when they created this one!

    Anyways thank you all for thefeedback! Feel free to say anything you want!

    Yeah, that antique version is very nice. Beautiful, even. But then I'm a sucker for that style.

    Nice maps...have some rep. The first tutorial I followed here was Ascension's (awesome tutorial!) and I eventually figured out, by looking at Earth maps, that I should modify the 'climate zone' gradient a bit. I took a different route, though and used multiple gradients so that I could vary the shape/size/placement of zones on my world a little...instead of having bands that stretched all the way across the map.
