    Help HELP! Last minute request for help with Spelljammer spoof for April Fool's Day!

    Hey Everyone!

    I'm putting together a website for a fictional product release as an April Fool's gag, and I could really use some help getting together some last few pieces to really knock this gag out of the park. I know this is very last minute (just two days till April 1st!) but my other avenues to get the maps I need fell through, so I'm hoping there might be someone here at the Cartographer's Guild who can help me out!

    I'm looking for deckplans that emulate the original deckplan cards that came in the Spelljammer boxed set...basically maps for the interior layouts of the ships. I'll happily accept whatever I can get, but I had the idea of featuring one of the following:

    1. Deckplans for the U.S.S. Enterprise. Yes...THAT Enterprise.

    2. The TARDIS from Dr. Who -- you know, with deckplans that are bigger on the inside than on the exterior.

    3. Deckplans for the interior of a Dalek.

    4. A Canoe.

    If anyone is able to help with this -- whether by providing one of the requested deckplans above or some other content -- I would be very thankful. Please e-mail me at: thesecretdm@gmail.com

    Than you for reading this! I look forward to hearing from you!

    I am still working on this... but has been put on the back shelf for now. Feel free to use any of the pics you see.

    If it's ProFantasy, I'm using it.

    Wow -- those are perfect! What name should I credit for the work, and where should I link to if people want to see out the artist?

    And thank you so much!

    Would still love to have the other pics (like the canoe) -- but these are so great! A lifesaver! Thanks again!

    @Ravells -- thanks so much for the link -- I'll see if there's something I can use there...much appreciated!

    @Rob A - WOW -- that canoe is made of winning! It's absolutely perfect! I owe you for that one...how would you like to be credited when the website goes live?

    Thanks again -- that's just absolutely amazing!

    Thanks.

    P.S. Is there an audience for this style of ship drawing?

    Definitely -- even if it's just me -- I mean, even down to the names of the locations AND the "map scale" -- it was like you looked into my brain, saw exactly what I needed, and brought the thing into the world. If it weren't the 21st Century, I'd fear your magic.

    I seriously can't wait to share the gag site -- I wish I could tell you all about it now, but I can't risk spoiling it just yet -- but this has been an incredible amount of fun, and you guys have really helped bring it to the next level! Thank you again so much, everyone! You actually make this look easy.

    Now if only I could get mock-up logos for other knock-off products...but I imagine the Cartographer's Guild is not the website to request fake logos. Oh well -- there's always NEXT April Fool's Day...

    Keep up the amazing, fantastic work, everyone -- you've definitely earned yourselves a new fan today!

    Definitely. That's the style I prefer for my sci-fi deck plans, in the rare instances that I play something like Traveler or Alternity. I don't often need battlemat-style deck plans with full color and textures.
