Two More Maps

I’ve put in orders for two more canvas maps, because I want to put them up in my office as inspiration for writing and gaming. And also because I get very into new projects and this one seems pretty easy to finish. Just click to order.

Inner Sareth
original map of Inner Sareth

The first is the map that began as an unnamed world map with a big blacksword as the compass, and so I called it the black sword map. It’s been renamed Inner Sareth, which represents the idea that it is part of a much larger continent.

The original was drawn on a large 22×30 sheet of preprinted hex paper (Chessex, I think) and colored with Berol Prismacolor pencils. You can see it there, all taped up, because I cut it up to scan it many years ago. I never used it for gaming or writing in any substantial way. The new version is a WonderDraft creation.

The second map is the one I used for the Baenrahl campaign and was also created in WonderDraft.

original map of Regentia

This isn’t actually the original, but is instead the first digital original. The actual original was made on a series of 8 1/2 x 11 papers and lived in a three hole binder. I have pictures of some of the pages, but not one of the map as a whole. And in fact, I don’t think I even have all of the pages. The original inspiration for this map, believe it or not, was a vector image of the moon. Those island continents were all one of the shadow layers of the vector.

I’ll post pictures when I get the new maps and have everything installed on the wall. Until then, tomorrow is the 1st episode of arohenRADIO. I hope you like it. We’re not going to talk about the progress on the promised arohenTV video. Later.
