Thread: The Town of Sanamachi

    Map The Town of Sanamachi

    I did this quickly tonight for my L5R campaign as the party have just arrived in town. Not that they'll be staying long, but it could become a recurring spot. I refined the trees a little since my other maps to give them a little more texture.

    Nice, man. Great coloring.

    I love your style of maps. They have a great feel to them, and the layout is very natural looking.

    It looks great! I feel like I never lay my towns out in a convincing manner, and this feels very convincing. I'd want to make the lines of the buildings themselves smaller though, they seem a bit too thick.

    Thanks everyone. The stroke on the buildings is a difficult one and I'm not sure which I prefer. It's a 3px stroke and I think it makes the building footprints stand out but is tiny bit thick perhaps. But I find the 2px stroke (which the docks and walls/fences use and I used to use on my older maps) looks a tiny bit too small for the buildings on small town/village maps.

    Nice colors, especially I like the docks. Your players must be happy to use the map in the campaign.
