    Wip The Sea Ward Of The City Of Stormhaven

    This is the other ward of the City Of Stormhaven from my Kingdom Of Shendenflar. Obviously I'm doing this in the same style as the the Port Ward map I finished earlier

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

    Nice! The only question I have, is that both wards seem very long and narrow. Are the two wards really all there is to the city? Or are they just the important part?

    Excellent question. For these maps I'm just showing the city itself. There are some scattered buildings outside of the city center along with some farmland on the outskirts. Also there is no city wall around Stormhaven like there is around the capital Riverhewn.

    Cool. You'll have to do a regional at some point so we can see all that

    I did do a Kingdom sized regional map some time ago that kind of shows the area around Stormhaven

    Hey, I missed that the first time around. Must have been during my sojourn in the recliner while my computer gathered dust That actually looks pretty cool, but I meant more along the lines of a "Stormhaven and environs" type map that shows the city outline and maybe the surrounding 20 miles or so. You've created an intriguing city here, makes me want more

    Ahh..Well that sounds like a pretty good idea

    From The Adventurers Guide To Shendenflar: The Sea Ward of Stormhaven is much more populous than the Port Ward. A visitor will get the full "port city" feel from this bustling ward. Filled with merchants,taverns and a few inns there is plenty to see and do. Be mindful however that this is a working port. Ships traveling from the Sultanate of Zief and the Caliphate Of Ekbir dock here bringing exotic treasures. Shendenflarian ships also travel south and west to far off lands. As in most port cities nightfall brings danger as sailors leave their docked ships in search of distraction which can be found in abundance in this ward. Sailors and merchants bring thieves and muggers so guard your purse well. The Lamplighters Guild is less active in this ward usually only working the main streets. The docks area goes from being well lit to almost pitch black depending on where one walks. Commerce doesn't stop for darkness in this city. The city guard is only slightly less present in Sea Ward than in the richer Port Ward. The guardsmen tend to be rougher and it is much easier to end up in the Stormhaven jail here. If one is careful and travels at the right times. Stormhaven is a wonderful city to explore.

    Started to color code the buildings and label things.

    *Sneezes* I decided to blow the dust off of this and actually finish this map. As you can see I decided to add roof lines to the buildings. I also have decided to go with a uniform grey color that hopefully simulates the slate roofs that dominate Stormhaven's skyline. The streets are winding and fairly "unusual" but that's just my style of city building. I like my alleys narrow and twisting and full of danger and adventure. As always feedback is requested and appreciated.
