    Question Looking for some overland city/town symbols

    I am using photoshop to do my maps, and I have some brushes that work pretty well for cities and towns, but I was looking at Anna's Greyhawk maps, and a few others there, and I liked the symbols there a lot. I haven't been able to find any like those, so I was curious if anyone could point me to some.

    I think that PNG symbols would be best.

    I believe I saw something similar on the Dundjinni forums, do a search on world map (or something similar). If nothing else it's worth a look.

    i will be doing something similar soon. they would not be exactly like those as that would be lame. what would be the best size for your work?

    I would like them somewhat on the larger size so that they will zoom pretty well. 1/2" x 1/2" at about 200 px. That way they will look good if I down scale them for large regional maps, but still be good on smaller kingdom scaled maps.

    What I have done in the meantime is to use some symbols from CC2 that I converted to JPEG. I think that the symbols were from my Forgotten Realms atlas software.
