I got gimp to work on my computer. I think this is going to have to be something I do on paper. I can't figure out how to use the program. The current digital map is up for grabs. I'm not able to learn this computer stuff.
If anybody wants the original bmp for this project e-mail me at email@example.com
I decided to redo this map on paper and change the layout of the town a little. I'm adding a wall and making major changes, but it is still Roseville. I might stick with the name or change it to fit with Medieval England, where I am going to place the town as Roselineshire. I am thinking of having a meat and leather industry as the mainstays of the town. What I found out about medieval leather making, this isn't going to be a pleasant place to live. As a port town it is likely to be wealthy in terms of access to trade on the North Sea into the Baltic. I think I will place the town in around the time just before the Black Death swept across Europe about 1345. Basically this is a map of the fictitious town of Roselineshire, England in 1345. I will have a photo of my paper map tomorrow when it is day and the light is better. The map is in my established style on this sight.
As promised, I have a photo of my paper version of Roselineshire.
Oh, I like the paper version :)
As will pretty much always be said, it's best to scan in maps rather than take photos of them, unless you're a professional photographer.
So if you're going to do some detail-work/put some words on, it'd be nice to have scans.
