December 2011 Entry: Benden Weyr
Don't know if I'm going to have time to finish this, but I'm doing something out of Anne McCaffrey's dragon books. Only problem is that I read them so long ago I can't really remember much, so I'll have to wing it from stuff from the web.
Here's what I've got so far...doesn't look too mappy tho', and not being able to draw mountains too well is a bit of a handicap too.
For those unfamiliar with the books, dragons and their human riders work together to fight an external threat to the planet (a toxic 'thread' that drops from space). The dragons live in 'Weyrs' which are the insides of extinct volcanoes. Each dragon has a weyr (small 'w') which has a 'sunning ledge' and a cave inside for it to sleep. In times of trouble the riders and dragons live together in the cave so they can fly out at short notice. Benden Weyr has capacity for about 600 dragons, which means about 300 caves on this map. I think I might use poetic license to cut that down a bit!
