    Default The Khanate of Montray

    I decided to do a post-apocalyptic version of my local area of California, focusing on the Khanate of Montray, a barbarous state controlled by biker gangs.

    Very Cool, I'll be looking forward to this

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

    Some base work. The southern river (the San Joaquin) is kinda dry and not-very-riverish, so I may break it up into a dotted line or something. I changed the coastlines a hair here and there to reflect 'natural' erosion, etc, since I'm thinking this is set maybe a century or so after the fall of modern civilization.

    Northern Cali biker gangs = old upper management dudes with leather jackets that only see sunlight once a month when they get together with other old dudes to run down to the AARP store to raise money for some hospital or charity Hmm, sounds like where I live, too. Looks good so far, man.

    Oh, we've got that kind of biker up here for sure, but there's a large quantity of the Real Thing too. Whether they could run a semi-coherent state or not is another thing altogether.

    StarRaven just put out an awesome new brush pack which I thought I'd try out for this map.

    Thanks for the awesomeness, SR!
