    Post Plain, Basic Overland City/Capitol/Fort etc symbols wanted

    Does anyone know where I could find some basic overland photoshop brushes to use to mark cities/ruins/forts/capitols...etc? I really like the plain style of just a black and white icon but can't seem to find them. I really enjoy the ones like from Schley's Sarifal....I like that entire map really. Mad props to his skills.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks peoples.

    Take a look at some dingbat fonts. You probably won't find a little fort icon (although who knows?), but you'll find a nice variety of stars, circles, and other symbols. Windows and MacOS both have character map applets to make selecting particular symbols easy. In Windows you'll find it at Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Character Map.

    You could also check Ascensions Brush Set out. It has a lot of the kind of thing that your looking for.

    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.
