    Default Jade Regent Map Folio wins Gold Ennie for best Cartography

    While I cannot take any official credit, I did create the original hand-drawn map of the city of Kasai, one of the 4 maps of that folio. It's got to be worth something!

    This is the original hand-drawing (low res) though I used a 36" x 54" piece of paper to draw the original.

    The fortress and samurai area - far right side, was drawn about 2 weeks after everything else, and with a different pen, which is why its darker. It was intended as a concept map only, however, the final full color version in the map folio has no changes to what was originally drawn by hand.

    I think the hand-drawn style is great. Can you give me a rough idea of the scale?

    Congrats GP, that is pretty cool.

    Thanks, everyone!

    @Ravs - I did create the original hand-drawn map, but Paizo's cartographer 'finished' the map so that it appeared in the same styles as the other maps. However, no changes were made in my design in any way with the finished map.

    @Thurlor - see the 'block' rectangle at the center of the map (the one not against the river, but just west of the southwest corner of the fortress district on the far right), the width east to west, plus the width of a canal on side is a total of 1000 feet. That's the closest scale I can depict. Of course as my map was hand-drawn only, there was no need for labels at my stage of cartography.
