    I was thinking of lightening the second one a bit, or darkening the first one a tad. But yeah, between the party being fireballed unexpectedly, and the aging effects of being in the desert area for as long as they were (3 weeks at the one location, and however long exploring the rest), plus Gromet being Gromet, it would have affected the paper. Plus, I was figuring the scribe used lower quality inks and paper to begin with, perhaps I should make reference to that.

    I've also gone through and updated some spelling errors, and further modified some of the comments (shortening some, changing others slightly, and let Alwen's fastidious personality show through just a tad more with correct capitalization and punctuation).

    And just because he can, Gromet will add a quick sketch of a dancing girl

    The white was to have it blend in better to the background when being viewed at full size - in my browser at least there is a default white background. Perhaps if I expand outwards a bit and have them sitting on a table? I'll play around with it a bit, I also don't want to exceed the megapixel limits (it's already 5kx2.5k)

    Wip

    Made the newly created map look a bit more parchmenty, lightened the weathering/aging on the older version, added a title to the first to match the second.. and who can resist the dancing girl? Certainly not Gromet

    The white isn't so harsh now with the lighter parchment on the aged version, so I'm going to leave it as is, I think.

    unless I find something else worth tweaking, I just may consider this done.

    new things learned from this map:
    how to make proper looking torn edges
    people figures (usually i suck at them)
    when working from multiple computers, also keep copies of the fonts in the working folder, not just patterns textures and brushes

    I agree, the white isn't nearly so jarring now. Great work!

    For what it's worth it I give it the official Steel General stamp of finished-ness

    Long live the Octoclops!

    Much better Coyotemax!
    And certainly, any map with dancing girls in it is cool in my book
    Check out my City Designer 3 tutorials. See my fantasy (city) maps in this thread.

    and here it is.

    I was waffling between Gromet Approved and Octoclops..
    but we had a clear winner.

    Voted and repped. You finished so early I had forgotten all about this entry; it just made me laugh out loud when I looked at it again. This map is awesome!
