    Great work chap!!!!!

    I don't suppose (once you've finished E1-E3) you have any intention of turning your considerable energies and talent to Scales of War?

    Funny you should mention that...that's the series I'm currently running. My group has been on hiatus for awhile, and we're looking to start up again next weekend.

    So in a word, yes.

    And this one wraps up E2. The floor (a sea of ghouls) looks pretty lame, but I wasn't about to individually place thousands of ghoul symbols. I'm pretty sure that would have invalidated the "Sane" part of my name.

    Wonko, you are a mapping fool! Just wanted to let you know that whereas it's tough to comment after each one, these are all very cool. Not to mention the sheer amount of work you're putting in. Have some rep!

    Dang; you're a machine! Thanks for doing this, it's an enormous help!

    I know it's six pages late, but the reason the grid increases the PNG file size so much is because PNG compresses by replacing large areas of solid color with a single reference. Breaking up those areas with the grid means that the compressor has lots more references to make, which naturally increases the file size. PNG's primary benefit in mapping is that it permits transparency, which jpeg does not, and it's lossless, so you can save and resave without losing quality.

    Jpeg usually compresses smaller, bit you'll probably notice a bit of noise in those large colored areas if you shrink it too much, and it's only suitable as an end product, as a jpeg will lose quality every time it is edited and resaved.

    Anyway, the rate at which you're turning these out is astonishing. Rep from me, too!

    Thanks for the kind comments. My output rate is about to take a nosedive, since it's back to work tomorrow.

    At any rate, the Red Hold is done. The full map (~12 MB), as usual is available here: http://gerrudrasmussen.deviantart.com/gallery/

    My next few posts will be this map, split into encounter-sized areas.

    Enjoy!

    Next 2 encounter areas. The thumbnails seem to be hit-or-miss, but the maps download fine.
