    Map Dragonsmouth - city map commission

    Hey guys,
    Here's my lastest map, Dragonsmouth, a city map commisionned by Peter Gates from Silverhold Studios, who will release a steampunk setting kickstarter in 2014 "Eternity : Steel and Steam".

    Here's a few words about the city of Dragonsmouth itself :

    " Dragonsmouth was originally built as a military outpost by the Thulian Technocracy to protect and make use of a strategically important Waygate that was found in a series of caves under a large outcropping of rock (now called Dragoncrest). To protect the outpost inhabitants from the Mists, a large domed design supported by the rock outcropping was adopted.
    Unfortunately the project was plagued by problems and constant Mistspawn attacks. The dome collapsed during mid-construction just before the end of the war between Thule and its enemy, Britannia. Already struggling under the costs of the continuing war effort, the government abandoned the project and ordered all troops to pull out. However, those already living in the settlement refused to leave, as did General Herrera, the military commander in charge of the project, who made it his duty to look after those left behind by Thule. His men, the Grey Guard, likewise stayed behind, becoming the standing military force for the city. Thus Dragonsmouth was born, named after the shape the broken dome made.
    Some fifteen years on the city has grown, quickly becoming a centre of trade for the northern borderlands, with a reputation as a place where you could pretty much find anything - for a price of course. It is also a well-known refuge for certain people (criminals, mercenaries, pirates and the likes) that wish to avoid the forces of Thule and Britannia. Dragonsmouth also has a strong industrial sector, with local mines providing the necessary raw materials for the production of steel from which other goods are manufactured. However, due to the harsh, barren and rocky land around the city, it relies heavily on other settlements around the region to supply enough foodstuffs to feed its people.


    As I was asked to make a few other maps for this setting, I'll keep you in touch about it. You can still check updates and news on Fat Core community and Silverhold Studios website.

    The map was made in photoshop, following Yphyrion's style, as requested. Original size is 8"x12". WIP thread is here, thanks for the comments there!

    I hope you'll like it,

    As the client for this project, I'm immensely pleased with the work that Max has done. I couldn't recommend him enough and I'm really excited to see what other maps he creates for the setting.
