    Thanks my friend. Larb made it VERY easy to adapt this to GIMP.

    I've been spending quite a bit of time lately reading my old notes about the Kingdom of Shendenflar. Remember this setting is over 25 years in the making and many many things have changed over those years. I discovered that I had only written a little "blurb" originally about Southrun (the town was actually detailed by my GM for our campaign even though it was my setting) One of the things I had written explained how the Caravans stopped in Southrun to either unload their cargo for transport by ferry across the river to Riverhewn or to let their animals rest. I had described a large fenced in area that was used for this purpose. Also I had quickly described some warehouses that were used to hold merchandise before it was shipped across the river. Southrun was a little bigger in the early days of the Kingdom but there was also no Northrun to hold the large sawmill complex that is there now. I decided to revise my map of Southrun to show the warehouses and the animal resting/staging area. As always feedback is requested and appreciated.

    This is shaping up really nicely...I'm thinking it might be worth trying to mess with the coastline a bit (rather, the water part of it...to illustrate shallower and deeper parts of the river...i only mention it because you've already started to add dirt to the river edge and messing with the water might look nice.)

    Thanks. And thanks for the suggestion. I've applied it and I like the results.

    I think I might be "done" with this. Thanks to Larb's great tut (I really can't recommend it enough to anyone that might be thinking about creating a town or village or even large city !!) I now have a very nice map of the Town of Southrun. As you can see I finished the labeling and added my "standard" black border. I really had fun with this and I think this will be the style for all of the town maps in Shendenflar. As always feedback is requested and appreciated.

    Looks great! I've started working with that tutorial myself, doing something simple to get the hang of it and then possibly using it for other things as well. There are so many great resources it's going to take a while to decide which style I like.

    Thanks. I really like this style of map for a village or town and am thinking of trying it for a new version of my capital city (although that is a LOT of little roof lines) Good luck with your experiments.

    Two errors appear in the text: "arrving" for "arriving" and "fo" for "for".
