    Used Excel to for this rough draft of the Foreign Quarters of the RPG base city. Still working on the building placements. Foreign Quarters Work in Progress-foreign-quarter.jpg

    Do you intend to incorporate a key or scale reference?

    Dana, yes, I'll include key and scale. Initially using Excel to create a rough map. Need to master GIMP to create a better quality map. Did notice that the image is flipped (N-S axis) from the original scan.

    Vellum,

    My first response, "Because I could." Actually, haven't spent the time to learn Gimp or Inkscape. Have a RPG city that needed fleshed out as a rough draft.
    Excel on work and home systems, so was able to work on it anywhere and in bitesize time increments. I have a new version to post, but found an interesting way to use lines to creat a cobblestone appearance on roads.

    That's actually, a rather impressive use of excell...

    Sure, you'll never get as pretty a result as you could with GIMP or photoshop, but it actually look like a nice and serviceable map right there... Impressive...
