    Don't worry, I haven't slowed down much!

    I've added a bunch of buildings. I want to put in all of the buildings, roads and vegetation, then I'm going to go back and spend a day or so on the shadow layers.

    I've got the Lake in and the mayor's keep as well as quite a few other buildings. I also need to plot the outliers [farms mostly] on the bottom of the map. I also have to figure out how I will represent the arena that will go on the first tier in the bottom right of the map. Here is my WIP map:

    I wouldn't make it a big arena, it's not that big of a town to support it, stock it, or build it in the first place. Maybe a tournament grounds for jousts and arrow-shooting and some melee contests.

    You're much too civilized. This will be a gladiatorial arena.

    Map Stillmeadows finished

    OK, I worked on this over the weekend and finished it this evening. Once I got the rest of the buildings in, it was all shadowing and labeling while adding some foliage and the fields and orchard.

    Do I move this to finished maps or simply add a new post in finished maps with the attachment?

    Create a new thread in the Finished maps forum and up-load the final version.

    This turned out really good.

    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.
