    NedS298 liked post by Ghostman On thread : Mapping cliches
    That's because most Middle-Earth place names are meaningful word combinations in the elf languages Tolkien invented. IIRC "dor" actually literally means "land", so all those ME names ending with -dor...

    59630 This is a star chart I created for my fantasy setting, the Savage Age. It covers the fixed stars visible to the naked eye that are known to the scholars and navigators of a particular...

    Maker of the Way liked post by Ghostman On thread : The MED (working title); WIP
    Just from looking at the thumbnails this seems pretty good, but the fact you're uploading PDFs makes it too much of a hassle for me to take a closer look (I can't view them directly in my browser,...

    Those elements are not just decoration, they serve a function and thus should be easily recognizable. Conforming to well established conventions makes recognition of the map symbols much faster and...

    Eilathen liked post by Ghostman On thread : Argyrian Empire map
    I aimed for a fairly simple atlas-esque style that would hopefully not look overtly modern. The text labels for some state and settlement names are faded to indicate places that aren't part of the...

    I had this same problem with the latest version (1.5) of G.Projector. I found that I could solve it by switching from the Windows-specific package of the software to the "generic" package. (This on a...

    A beautiful map -- but why is Burma completely displaced to southeast from where it should be :?:

    If we want to allow cannons, yet prevent smaller guns being invented and technology in general from advancing at too rapid a pace, then instead of gunpowder we could base it on steam cannons...

    I guess I'll chime in then, even if it won't be much of a contribution to the discussion. Hypothetically, were I in a position to dictate things... this world's level of technology would be based on...

    ^ I like this one, with the addition that it's not necessarily equally distributed. Some areas might be deprived of magical potential, while others are overflowing with it. I also don't see any...

    Perhaps in addition to "level" of technology we should discuss how closely it should mimic the real world. What I mean is that technology is not just about function (what it can achieve and how...
