    Default Sep/Oct 2010 Entry: Ruins of Nyth Thurnil

    Going to make a town near the border between two warring nations. Going for a somewhat hand drawn approach.

    Very nice... though shouldn't the buildings be a bit larger in comparison of the road? Just seems like the road is wider than the buildings, but then, that could just be my modern living talking heh.

    Yeah, you're right they should probably be larger.

    Very nice layout. Perhaps some of the roads are as destroyed as the bridges?

    Pretty. The buildings are a bit small compared with the roads, though. Maybe grow the buildings just a bit and shrink the roads a tad to being both closer together? I like how much detail you've got in there...and love the ruined buildings, they're very cool.

    Just make the roads thinner. Nothing in the rules that says you have to use the exact proportions...have a river in the same place in relation to the roads and have the same street layout but make things as fat or thin as you want.

    Tweaked the roads a bit and redid the buildings. Also added some more ruined buildings. I figured the closer they are to the big river, the more destroyed they would be.
