    Map The Land Beyond the Veil

    A regional map for a fantasy setting I'm slowly developing. This shows the British Isles 400 years after the world of Man and the world of Faerie... Merged.

    Thanks! It's shabby compared to some of your work, but I was fairly happy with it nonetheless.

    Very nice map! Have some reputation.
    The stamps do indeed look marvelous. What's there purpose though? I have never seen stamps on a map before.
    Check out my City Designer 3 tutorials. See my fantasy (city) maps in this thread.

    Merely decorative. The blue and red stamps were supposed to represent random (Or not-so-random?) doodles by some Faerie who got ahold of the map. The circles within the blue stamp line up over key locations/places of magical energy...

    This is pretty cool. I dunno whats going on in the lands around here tho. Avalon seems to be riding high - as it does but then... well... some serious geological shenanigans have been evoked and twisted it a bit. Its a seamless change into the fantasy at this point tho. I like it.

    EDIT -- Modern "Avalon" pic attached with the Tor on top. The hill with the Tor would have been an island in old times before they drained the low lands. I would imagine that some of the other hills around would be above water too. Must have looked mighty odd and magical.

    What I'm thinking about starting next is close-up views of some of the states shown on here. Think I'll start with Avalon (also known as Somerset ). It's going to be a fairly large-scale map, and it's a little intimidating; I don't usually work with stuff much over 1500x1500, and the Avalon map and subsequent maps may run to twice that size. Ah well, I only get better by trying.

    That's easy. A piskie needed to draw out a map, and all he could get ahold of was an old passport!
