    Wip My World of Aranor in CC3

    This is the northern region of the continent of Calanthas in Aranor. This CC3 version is (mostly) done (are they ever really done?), as is the town. I am posting the CC3 versions because these are the maps I am going to start my migration to GIMP with, so I thought I would give a frame of reference to those interested. Also, anyone interested in my write-up for the world may feel free to let me know and I'll be happy to share. One of these days, when my maps are ready, I hope to put the whole world up to share. If anyone has any tips on good, free hosting for that sort of thing, I would be grateful.

    I would like to see some details, but the maps are too small. Could you please post a larger version?

    I concur. A higher res version would be nice to see.

    Very nice Ilvarin and welcome to the guild.
    I also concur with the others, lets have some higher res images so we can see more details
    That being said - have some rep for your first upload
    And Deviant Art can probably host most of what you got

    Map

    Here is a "richer" version. Sorry the other was lacking, but thanks for having enough interest to want more. This was my first use of CC's sheets. I didn't get around to shading or adding any depth to the water either. Maybe someday, but for the foreseeable future I plan on devoting my energy to GIMP. I want to get this map, and the eastern and southern portions of the continent ported over first. I'll get the better version of the town map up soon, I just had to do them one at a time for technical reasons Thanks for the kind comments, and the rep. I can't say enough about how awesome it is to be a part of this guild.

    Good Morning all. I was toying around with m settings and saw blog options. Would it be appropriate and/or wise to use guild blog to host my world? As in finished maps, articles, write-ups on kingdoms, adventures, all that jive? If so, that would be fantastic to have this be my one destination where all this is concerned.

    The larger version is much better . Good first map. If you want to redo it with Gimp, export just the landmass in the needed resolution, import it to Gimp and use it as a starting point. That makes things much easier.

    Concerning hosting all on a blog here I could imagine 2 problems:
    1. There is an upper limit on image size so really big maps wont "fit"
    2. Backup and structure. I could imagine a blog not being the safest place in the universe to place files, and also not the most organized. I would probably rather make a dedicated homepage somewhere and then blog about my progress and link to the homepage (or put everything both places)

    This is as much as I know about the blogs at the moment: go ahead and blog away - that's what it's there for. Treat it as your own little personal space within the format and structure of The Guild, here. That means post what ya want. Tilt's comment about image size is a valid one but for 90% of your needs you should be good to go. Arcana or RobA are the ones to really answer the question but from what we've talked about in our secret meetings I gather that you should just have fun with it. Also, it gives us a chance to weed out any bugs. Maybe someday we can get everyone to do their blogging here and take over the world...Pinky and the Brain style.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
