    Post unnamed tower keep

    I just scanned in another artifact of mine to work on. Not sure when I drew this up but the copyright date on the TSR logo is 1980.
    I plan on doing this up in color and cleaning up the details. Possibly formatting the tower to 1 inch table top grid. Looks like my grid squares now are about 10ft per...so have to double that up for 5 ft per inch grids.

    I don't think I ever ran any adventures on this map. I have name on it nor is there any accompanying encounter data. So I must have just drawn it up and left it. Well that just won't do at all.

    Also it looks like I am missing all cellar/dungeon maps for it...I can see stairs going down from the ground floor...more to do!

    update on my tower keep. Mostly just painting the map portion of the surrounding area of the keep.

    Wow. That aerial view of the tower looks amazing. Awesome stuff.

    Yeah, I love your paint-over. That's looking sweet. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the keep itself. Are you planning a loose look like the landscape? There was a map in Paizo's latest Pathfinder Adventure Path (volume 2 of Council of Thieves) that had a very loose "painted on canvas" style - I was very taken with it as most encounter maps tend to be semi-realistic and precise.

    Consider yourself repped. That aerial view looks amazing indeed.

    Steel General, Ramah, Mearrin69 and Gandwarf - Thanks guys!

    I have more work to do on the map view, but I am thrilled ya'all like it so far. For the tower floor maps I intend to do those to a nice printable scale for tabletop. I want to retain some of the painted quality from the map view but otherwise get more detailed in the furnishings and textures.

    This is going to fit in my Voradin map as a barony that lies on the east coast between Ganlan City and the Voradin capitol. Still have to name it though. The party voyaged past it by sea at one point.

    Here I thought the original drawing was cool and then I saw the painted aerial view - wow! I would rep you but I need to spread it around a bit more before I can do so again.
    Cheers,

    I couldn't help but repping this! I can't wait to see how you do the keep, but the terrain view is incredible!

    Turgenev - Hey thank you! Glad you like it...again still more to do -I am having fun with it.

    landorl - Thank you very much! Yee haw!

    Here is an update to the terrain side. I have some diagraming done on the floorplan but nothing decent to upload yet...Heck I am still trying to come up with a name for this barony. Lots and lots of work done on the mountains/hills - I lost myself in the details. Also added some farmland area and worked on the forests some more.
