    Map Regional map

    Here's a regional map that I drew not to long ago for a game that hasn't happened yet... just thought I'd share it. It hasn't been completely fleshed out.

    Interesting map,
    I think that depending of its use, you should think about doing on some kind of scroll (maybe dead animal skin of a piece of wood) around the map, to give it a feel of realty (like a "treasure map"). Redo the whole symbol style for the hills and the mountains (more like range instead of individual), because a person will almost never draw Individual Mountain when doing a sketch map (as opposes to a whole regional map) on a scroll like yours seems to tell me.
    Then even so you wish to use it as a normal game map, just adds a small "X" someplace not too visible, to get the possibilities of a side quest or something and let your players remark it and try to find th location.



    NOTE: By the way, to any guild admin, It could be a good challenge to take a handmade none-finish map like this and ask the challenger to produce a finish version of it with some restriction on its use (treasure map, history book ,..), but not on the making style.

    Ciao,

    Nice beginning, del--I think this map has great potential! Looking forward to seeing more.

    I must agree with a few of alu's suggestions. I think these would improve the map quite a bit--especially the mountains comment, for they are the weakest part of your map, I think I do like your woods, though--I lot! They look great!

    Great idea for a challenge, Alu. Actually, it's funny you say this because I have a half-finished tutorial on my comp that basically shows how to do this: take a plain-jane, simplistic map and turn it into a player handout, etc. I do like the challenge idea, though. A lot!!
