    Post War front

    This map shows an area in
    - this world: http://www.cartographersguild.com/sh...5076#post55076
    - the region of Ildust: http://www.cartographersguild.com/sh...5077#post55077

    and contains
    - the city of Onust and its catacombs: http://www.cartographersguild.com/sh...ad.php?p=55072
    - which contains this mansion: http://www.cartographersguild.com/sh...5067#post55067


    After first designing a world and detailing the campaign region in crayon, I realized I would need even more detail if I really wanted to hook my players. Luckily, they would hang around the war front for the coming real-time years (I was mostly right), so I could zoom in on a small area that's about in the middle of my map of Ildust.

    I wasn't pleased by that map, though, and I knew that there's no way Google Maps would provide me enough detail since I was zooming way too close. I also knew that the players would receive their zoomed-in map from the military, so I figured it should be hand-drawn and clear rather than accurate.

    Just for kicks, I'm including the tile-based Gametable interpretation of the map. I had actually completed about 20 times the surface of the part I'm attaching, but most other areas had less detail and were not representative. I created all tiles myself, but with Maptool being less restraining (and my Photoshop skills having improved), I'll probably start from scratch again. For, like, the fifth time?
