    Default Would love a map for a short story

    Hello everyone! I have recently begun writing a short story set in a medieval/ fantasy world and I would love it and appreciate it if someone could make me a map for it.

    The only things I require is if somewhere in the north there is a mountainous region with forests and rivers immediately south of it (preferably like rivers starting in the mountains and flowing through some forest areas underneath)

    I would like something clean and simple, with a hand drawn vibe to it similar to the map for ord of the rings or martin's Westeros from a game of thrones. I also want it a bit longer height wise than length. If this can be done by one of the many amazing cartographers here I would absolutely love it! I unfortunately have no money so if anyone is willing to make me one I will definately credit them whereever i post the map in conjuction with my short story. Though i want it to look hand drawn and parchmenty/ olding it does not have to actually be hand drawn if you prefer like photoshop or something.

    Also if the map could be hi res or large or something thatd be cool too! So thank you whosoever can make me one

    Also, (sorry for double post) I would like various region types to the continent/ country, like marshes, riverlands, hilly and mountainous regions, etc. Again thank you

    Have you thought about going through the finished maps section and looking for something you might like, then you can ask the mapper if you can use it for your book

    Yes, of course I made that.

    I admit I was teasing you a bit with it. You made such an un-specific request that I just had to side with Tilt on this one, most map-making requests are a bit more worked out than "some map" for an ill defined "short story" with no note of mood, style, content, etc.

    I clearly stated the style of map i wanted... Nor do i care for mood. I gave a style and left the rest up to the designer. I myself am a graphics designer and half my requests are for meto exersize my own creative juices... Which i do well enough. But thanks anyway ascension said he would take it up.

    I was just browsing this area of the forums and saw your map. I think it is really cute what you did I especially like the names you have given to the various sections. Just had to comment on this

    Any update yet, Brandon?
