    Post The Santharian Dream

    I came across this website some time ago, some of you may have seen it, but it's always worth a look. Make sure you have some time to sit and explore, it's a biggie:

    http://www.santharia.com

    The author of the site has completely mapped the world. Just to speed things along, here are some direct links to the maps. (Which he made in Photoshop) I think they are outstanding, myself:

    http://www.santharia.com/maps/contin...ia_north_2.htm
    http://www.santharia.com/maps/contin...ia_north_3.htm
    http://www.santharia.com/maps/contin...ia_north_4.htm
    http://www.santharia.com/maps/contin...ands_coast.htm


    He was also kind enough to include on the site a fairly comprehensive tutorial on his techniques:

    Hope this kicks everyone's creative juices in to overdrive for the new year.

    Cheers

    Yeah that would be good, like weathered paper or something. Maybe a little burn here and there with some grunge brushes. He also showed near the end of the tute some examples of other textures. I thought his work was really well done!

    The site is amazingly done. I LOVE browsing through websites that encompass entire campaign settings...I get ideas for my own campaign. I would liek to set up a wiki if my players cared enough about the goings on of the world outside of their own scope.

    This site is great though...still browsing hehehe.

    I found this site recently and it great. Very nice effects. The site gas some symbols that can be downloaded. I did that and made PNG files of them. I came up with this map using the symbols and MapX.

    not too shabby istarlome. I'm not really 100% on the placement of the items...and I think the trees need some shadow or something...but nice adaptation of existing symbols...would be great for those that don't have time to hand draw maps every time.
