    Wip December Entry: Witch's Rock

    I thought I'd play along as well. Though for now I'm just uploading the back story.

    Always looking for a twist, this isle belonged to the Creole Piratess, Paulette DuFlor - former slave from Louisiana, eventually a captain of her own schooner the Sea Witch under Captain Morgan's colors (fictional).

    Because she was also a voodoo priestess - curses, magic and a doll vessel the houses her spirit is said to be hidden in the caves of Witch's Rock...

    Wip Regional Map completed...

    Here is my regional map for the island of the pirate caves - Isle de Roche de Les Femmes Socier (Witch's Rock). Please check my "French", because I barely have any grasp of the language, and it exists as the place names on this map.

    Because this is the regional map, it falls outside the 4 hour mapping requirement, specifically for the cavern system adventure area only. Though I only spent about 2 hours creating this.

    The ship is a top-sail two masted schooner I traced from a photo and scanned to PNG format.

    (Oh and to save time, the hills are map objects from Superstition Valley)

    WIP so far.... I already see a translation error... "Carta" should be "Carte" - oops - and what should be the french phrase for "Caves of DeFlor"?

    Also I now think I'll change the scale from 10 Nautical Miles to 1 Nautical mile to make the "islet for marooning" more believeable - thus smaller scale.

    Wip changes to regional map

    OK, I made some French spelling corrections - still not sure on DuFlor Caverna.
    I changed the scale from 10 Nautical Miles to 1 Nautical Mile. I also "thinned" the rivers as I drew them too fat. Practically done.

    I plan to create my 4 hour cavern system map tonight to wrap up my entry!

    I can help you a little with your french:

    Witch's Rock = Le rocher de la sorcière

    so the name of your map would be "Carte du rocher de la sorcière".

    Caves of DeFlor = Cavernes de DeFlor

    Port Au DeFlor -> Port DeFlor (= DeFlor's harbor)

    Lac au vert -> Lac vert (= Green Lake)

    Concerning all the rivers, the best would maybe that you give me the english names and I'll translate them for you.

    Thank you very much, Zinik!

    Rivers: Butterfly, Serpent, Rainbow, Flowers, Rum, Paulette, Night...

    I appreciate the translation. I took Spanish in high school and I know some Japanese, some words in other languages, but that's it.

    Zounds! I have yet to master my mother tongue.

    I like the map, your background paper is very nice, gives it a good look. I also like the mountains. I have a problem in making my mountains look nice like that. May I redraw them (in my own style of course) for future mapping projects? I'm trying to build a catalogue so that I can start using different looking terrain features...

    You can redraw to your heart's content, its fine with me. However, I have all my Mountain/Hills etc map objects in my Superstition Valley thread - you can go an download this you'd rather and work from there...

    Link is: http://www.gamer-printshop.com/oldwest.html

    Download the zip files I have here - 6 altogether and give them a try. The transparent objects is what you're probably looking for.
