    Default Sacrament Gulf

    It's been forever since I've had time to work on a map. I doodled this little one on a Post-It Note at lunch today; hope to turn it into something interesting-looking. This is a post-apocalyptic California after a sea-level rise and massive flooding of the central valley. You've got lots of little city-states on the peninsulas, rustic principalities in the mountains, and a large empire in the interior (actually just its far western frontier; the heartland is farther east).

    Sweetness! Gotta love post-it note maps. We should make it a challenge. You can use as many sheets as you want, in any color. haha

    Materials aside, very cool map. =) Nice rendition of a post-apocalyptic California.

    LOL, can you imagine your friends and loved ones peeking into your room and seeing thousands of post-its plastered everywhere? They'd think you were insane. Oh, wait...

    Here's a couple of different starts on this, not sure which one I like better:

    The one on the right has more 'character' though both are nice. are they still post-it note size or have they been scaled up? nice stuff

    The right one seems just a little more balanced to me.

    Yep, I like the one on the right too. And they have been scaled up.
