    Effective! The best part of this map for me is the way the axes of the town are rotated off the usual N=up/S=down/E=right/W=left.

    Great stuff, Gandwarf. I especially love the Westdiep and Groenburg maps. I really like the way you use the different colours for the surrounding fields. Inspirational stuff. Considered yourself repped for all of your hard work.

    Edit: Dang, can't rep you at the moment. I need to spread the rep around before I can do so again.
    Cheers,
    Tim

    Really great maps!

    I think I have to get CD3 after seeing all these beautiful maps.

    :-)

    Thanks guys. And yes, CD3 is great, buy it

    Anyway, I wanted to try some things out and made a generic map that I will probably never use for my novel. It's a town near a river delta. There's a small wooden keep and lots of forests.

    Well, the itching started again and I have begun work on another large city: Blauwhaven (Blueharbor). The largest port in my world. I will add a bigger maps when the city evolves.

    Finished the map, took about 7 hours total.

    So this is Blueharbor, the largest port city in my world. Most of the larger lake vessels have been built here. It might not have the most docks, but it sees the most traffic. Although that might change in the future, as cities like Concetron and Westdiep are getting their fair share of traffic and trade.

    Blueharbor in the past was an independent city state, ruled by a wizard. In later years the city fell under the influence of the great wizards of Concetron. It is now ruled by the Alliance.

    The city has a sheltered harbor with an entrance between two cliffs. Lighttowers on the cliffs can guide ships into the harbor when it's dark. Two fortresses on the cliffs guard the city.

    Well, I am mapping another great city (3rd out of 5). It's Ziadon, a city that started humbly as a small mining town a few centuries ago. Thanks to rich silver mines the town really prospered and the wizards that eventually ruled there were powerful enough to withstand even the rulers from Sirilion. Full description when the map is finished.

    If the map gets finished that is, this might be my Waterloo
    I am about 3 hours in at the moment.
