Beautiful Maps
A year ago or so, my good friend Thorfinn Tait embarked on a personal journey to establish his Patreon business. For this, he selected the creation of new geographical maps.  Anyone who knows the world of Mystara and Thorfinn should understand why. His clai...

Hi all,

I drafted this poster map for my present project, "Dreams of Aerie." It is the main deck of a flying circus. Multiple floors of the buildings on the outside rim are displayed in the "exploded view." There are three decks, all of which took months to draft and stock for the greatest pleasure of any DM (and players.) All of this will become available on DTRPG. You can otherwise participate in the kickstarter which is running now and get in on the action before anyone else.

#Kickstarter #Calidar "Dreams of Aerie" is now officially at 91% of target with 3 weeks to go. http://kck.st/2sa5nAA

Here's my latest design, a poster map for my current project "Dreams of Aerie." This is represents the main deck of a flying circus. Permanent dwellings with multiple floors are perched at the deck's rim. The various floors are shown in this exploded view. There are three poster maps, one for each of the circus's decks. It took months of work to stock each of the creation's 150+ "explorable" areas, not to mention 90+ NPCs with separate backstories and personal motivations. It's a whopper.

Here's a poster map I drafted that's part of my present project, "Dreams of Aerie." This is a flying circus. The present view shows the main deck, featuring permanent dwellings at the rim. Their floors are displayed around the deck. There are three decks to the flying circus, all with separate poster maps.

HI all. I ran part of his adventure at GaryCon & NTRPGCon -- a creepy flying circus (some of you may attest to this!) It presently makes the object of a Kickstarter for my new book. Click to learn more. :)

Here's a poster map I designed for my current project, Calidar "Dreams of Aerie." It is a flying circus with multiple decks. In addition to the circus itself at the center, and a carnie's tents and shacks surrounding it, the main deck also features a series of permanent dwellings on the outer rim -- the aeries-- which come with multiple floors. These are displayed around the main deck's map. The project presently makes the object of a Kickstarter. The other two decks come on separate poster maps.

Question for Game Grognards
To keep my mind off Calidar's Kickstarter, I'm working on an air combat system for skyships and fantasy monsters, using concepts introduced in CAL1 "In Stranger Skies." This concerns the effect of wind direction and strength on skyship flight speeds. Depend...
