    Wip September Entry: Archean League

    In the northeastern reaches of the continent of Cambre, lies the sovereign towns of the Archean League. A loose alliance of trading states that operate a cooperative navy to protect their waters from piracy and foreign incursions.

    I'll learn more background, as I develope the map.

    First WIP: I enlarged the tiny, low res original to 24" x 24", then printed it to my large format laser printer at full size. Then I loosely traced a deliberate coastline, and rivers, as well as placing forests.

    I imported to Xara, traced the mainland and nearest islands, cutting out the river valley's and lakes with drawing tool from a light green square. I applied a transparency, a halo shadow for the blue along the coast and rivers. I gave the land a very slight rounded bevel to give some height.

    I imported my trusty parchment from my Lhessadrak map, cropped a 24" x 24" area and placed behind the map drawing and beveled mainland.

    After I do the green land thing to the remaining islands, I will create a hand-drawn texture for the forests and blend a darker green for color.

    I plan to place small lines of text pointing out important sites and battlefields from local history on the map. So later versions will be without compression so as not to blur the text.

    WIP so far...
