    Default The Accidental Cartographer

    Hi all,

    I've always enjoyed maps and map creation, but certainly didn't ever expect to be creating them commercially. However, one of the things about helping to run a startup is that you need to wear a lot of hats. One of those hats was "battlemap creator" for our online cooperative RPG, Conclave. With experimentation, Dungeon Designer, Photoshop, and a lot of time in the Dundjinni forums, this seemed to work out; I don't claim to be any great shakes, but our players seem happy.

    Here are a few examples of the battlemaps in action:

    The maps are designed for small-scale tactical combat, with plenty of open spaces and some relevant terrain. They are designed for a staggered square grid (basically hexes, but done with squares instead as squares are easier to manage in the web browser).

    Now just looking to keep getting better as I build more maps for the game, which is why I'm here!
