    Default Creating A Set of Sub-Maps

    This will be an extended project. Luckily the "map drawing" part of this has been part-completed.
    I'm taking sections of my previous labour of insanity http://www.cartographersguild.com/sh...ir-A-World-Map and then compiling them into smaller maps specific to empires or regions then covering them with additional notes that may be relevant to a ruler. They will include comments about history, production, shipping, military and the Coat of Arms of the current Ruling Dynasty.

    So to kick all of this off...

    These are quite nice Juggernaut; I really enjoyed reading through the descriptions of the geographical features. Also, kudos for making all your own symbols; that in itself is an accomplishment. BTW, you a ha typo in the first map under "Heneyelle". You've got "place" in there twice. Otherwise, really great job!

    Cheers,

    WIP - Hlintra
    I still need to do the bulk of the text for this map, but here is the initial mockup with Arms, border and decorations at least initially included.

    These are really nice. And they even tell a bit of your story - bravo!

    Thanks JB & Steel...

    @JB: These maps are basically going to become part of a campaign setting I've been scribbling on for something crazy like 4 years or more (I get the feeling closer to 6...) and it has seen LOTS of revisions over the time. Now that I actually found this place, got some cartography skills... and can keep all of this in a digital form that's worth worrying about and relatively easy to access I've been working on this quite a bit more.
