    Post Good ole' Ravenloft!

    RobA> - that reminds me how much I miss Ravenloft, and Strahd - its been ages! I miss the guy!

    Anyway, like I said, I originally got the idea of layered land from Sean MacDonald, cartographer for E.N. Publishing War of Burning Sky campaign maps - his work is all hand-drawn as well, but he uses this "bevel" like effect at the edges of his terrain levels - very similar to this Ravenloft map.

    I mentioned this in my October Challenge WIP - so I don't claim to have invented this idea!

    That's where the idea came from, I just knew I could create beveled layers in Xara, so I thought I'd give it a try.

    It looks cool and really helps you see the depth or rather height of the elevations in front of you, but not altogether realistic - still it is a map and not a photograph, or at least not intended to be.

    This map shows extensive use of the beveled, stacked terrains - nice one Rob!

    Take a look about halfway down the page to see Strahd. Near the bottom is one of his minions.

    I was going to post there but the challenge threads get locked after the challenge, so I stuck it here where you used a similar technique!
