    Wip New Campaign World

    So, with 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons on the horizon, and less than 6 months to release, I figured it is time I made a new campaign world. I realize it will be a lot work on my part. We know from reports that the theme of D&D 4th edition is Points of Light, meaning the game has humanity and it's allies in small pockets of civilization with the little to know contact with neighbouring communites. Vast kingdoms are a thing of the past, and beyound the firelight evil stalks the night.

    Sure, I could keep my current campaign world, and just bring it to the 4th edition Points of Light, but other things about 4th edition do not mesh with my current world. The presence of Tieflings, Aasimar, etc as playable races has never had a place in my world, and so I figured, it's 25 years of history has come to a close, and the time has come to start anew.

    That said, I will soon be posting images of my new world, my new setting, and starting the whole creation process over. Many things from my old world with be stripped away and brought into the new world. All them city maps wil be transplanted (no need to reinvent the wheel here ).

    So, LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

    Oddly, when it comes to campaign worlds, I prefer less land, as then there is less 'mapping' to do

    So, here is a few different views of the world, and the area I will be detailing.

    So, I have done the 'Good' copy of the new Continent for my Campaign World.

    I really need to think of a better name than 'New World'

    It looks lovely, but is there an 'in game' need to have so many fine gradations of altitude? I can see the problem, having the fine gradations on the map makes it nicer to look at but imports a need to explain what each colour means. I'd suggest combining the two green spectra into one and then you would just need to use the first colour of each spectrum, green, light brown, dark brown and black in the key without labelling each colour in the spectrum individually. The map user ought to be able to figure out roughly the altitude of individual colours from that. Of course this means having to make a key manually rather than use the auto one that FT generates in CC but it may be worth the effort...although it's only a very small point and not worth the effort if you are going to be generating tonnes of maps.
