    Ok; here is the version I ended up printing...

    The Forecastle:

    The Hull with the rowing benches:

    Anyway, let me know if anything needs fixing, if not, I'll transit it to the 'Finished' section as I would like to start building myself a small galleries with my finished maps...


    I was a bit pressed on time, because I wanted the maps ready for today's game (although, my players ended up taking a side quest and the map did stay in their folder) but, it's pretty good.
    I guess I could have added more details to the ship, especially JTougas' winches that I just spotted over on this thread... And I might still do it, later...

    Fair enough...
    I choose the name "Golden Elk" as a homage on the real "Golden Hind" before starting to work on the map.
    I was about halfway through the map when I stumbled on various figure heads on the Dundjinni forums, all too good to pass on... (you'll notice the first picture i posted did not have a figure head, it is because I had not found it yet...).

    I do not think I gave my players the name of the ship yet. All that they know is that they were hired to stop a pirate from preying on the water around Waterdeep and that a trader in Luskan (a city known for haroburing pirates) have recently sold quite a few Waterdhavian goods...
    I can still change the name of the ship into something mentioning Dragon. On the other hands... I may keep it (the ship my players are sailling with is called the "pantless dragonfly" on none of them even asked why...).

    Either way it's a great map and a great platform for adventure. And you HAVE to do a map of the "Pantless Dragonfly" that is the BEST name for a ship I have EVER heard....

    Thanks again...

    Well, the pantless is based on a map I published a while ago (one of my earliest efforts).


    But I did rework it a bit since... Here it is (maybe I should start its own thread):
    WIP: The Golden Elk; Warship.-pantless-dragonfly.jpg

    I must have screwed up the dimensions in some ways, as I am having all sort of trouble printing it to scale. Also, I wanted to fit everything on a double sized paper, but the result is a bit too compressed... I'll need to bit the bullet and look into that.
