    Wip April Entry: [Region 1][Map 29][Kaiar]

    Finally got some free time so I figured I would enter this month's mapping contest.

    My map of choice being the city of Kaiar, a once prosperous settlement within what is now know as the plaguelands. Though much of the city now lies in ruins, there are still those who know it as home. To the south of the river the city has been overrun by all manner of beasts and left in ruin; to the north the governor hides within his keep with those closest to him as well as a small contingent of soldiers holding back the monstrosities and plague victims that seek to gain entrance. A great bridge once connected the two halves of the city, but it was destroyed by the governer in the city's final hours as a final attempt to stop the plague's spread to the north.


    So far I just have some simple land/water for a placeholder, with more to come in the next few days.

    This sounds interesting. Can't wait to see the end result

    Just a short update, added some ruined walls, structures, changed the terrain a bit. Lots of work to go, but its slowly taking shape.

    My last update for today (and maybe overall). I feel like the dock needs something more and I would love to add a wrecked ship (if only that were simple ), but overall i'm satisfied with how it is (okay.. i might play with the lights/color some more..)

    Hey, your entry is awesome! I really love it, but don't stop playing with the lighting. That last post is way too dark. I hope I'm not alone in that opinion. Don't get me wrong, the dark feel is good for the ruins, but don't go soo dark that it obscures the other work that you've done. A really good job!

    I love a dark map cuz it really sets a mood and this one is good for that. I'd make it just a tad lighter, like maybe 10% or less and fill the empty space with with some stuff to help reinforce the mood...like skeletons or lizards or vines or something. Lovin it nonetheless.
