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.
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.
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.
