New from the Atlas of Mystara: the Alphatian Kingdom of Arogansa, 8 miles per hex. Remaking Bruce Heard's original hex map.

Arogansa is first and foremost, at least from the point of view of those who may benefit from it, a realm where one goes for rest and recreation.  It offers in good faith, if the price is right, anything ranging from mindless entertainment to secluded…

I posted this to my Patreon yesterday — my latest +World of Calidar map.

I've taken the vertical exaggeration technique (aka plan oblique relief) from my previous map and toned it down a bit. (In other words, I reduced the Z height of the 3D model.)

My question for you is this: should I tone it down even further? My guiding principle this time was to show the shape of the mountains while obscuring the elements immediately behind them as little as possible.

If you're interested in Caldwen, the subject of the map, I wrote a little bit more when I posted it:

Dreams of Aerie Kickstarter has gone live!
+Bruce Heard has just launched the Kickstarter for his third +World of Calidar book, an adventure called Dreams of Aerie.

It's a whodunit mystery, set on a flying circus, with a huge cast of characters and lots of intrigue going on. Rival sects will make the PCs' investigations rather interesting for everyone, as they explore the carnival and its dark underbelly, and try to pry open its many secrets.

I am on board to do the layout, as well as being a backer myself as usual. Care to join me?
