Medieval Plantation is a map of an open field farm belonging to a manorial lord surrounding a fenced in, enclosed farmer's garden, barn/stables, grain house, and family house in the center of the map. This map is intended for use in fantasy, medieval era games, modern (in rare areas where this medieval communal farming method persists), and horror.

Another map I made for a RPG published by 'Imaginary Empire'. A very enjoyable commission.

Made some maps, and also tested out some amber dot-dash index cards from Nock Co. These were scanned at 600dpi to Photoshop. Pictured is the Nock Co. card with the following tools each pointing at a line it produced.

Pencil: Uni Kuro Toga (not pictured)
Pens:
Schrade Tactical Fountain Pen
Sakura Pigma Micron 08 (0.5mm)
Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pen XS
Brause Iserlohn No.361 nib with J. Herbin Perle Noir ink

There's also a comparison of the Nock Co. vs a Staples brand graph-ruled card. The inked line on the amber card is from the Schrade, and the blue card with the Sakura. Overall, the Nock Co. card worked very well, and I should mention is also double-sided. The only pen that gave me trouble was the dip pen using the Brause tip and J. Herbin ink, which I really didn't expect to do well. It's hard to find paper that takes that ink without feathering.

Something else I hadn't realized until seeing the two cards next to each other is that the Nock Co. cards have a 4.25mm (~1/6 in) grid pattern vs. the 1/4 in (~6.5mm) on the staples cards. I'm sure you can see it's a much tighter grid, so keep that in mind when considering these for map-making.

Here's a map of a scavenger town inspired by the latest Star Wars movie. In the story there's a link to plain versions of the map that could be used with post-apocalyptic settings as well.

Very nice. My only comment would be that the contour hashes seem to be much closer together than I have seen in period maps.

Thanks for sharing the VTT file! That's really useful for us playing games online. :)

Would you be interested in sharing some of your maps and geomorphs on SyncRPG, or allowing some kind of backer tier for that?

Unsatisfied with the D&D 5E accounts of the Feywild, I struck out on my own using Inkarnate (http://inkarnate.com). I'm a total novice to this and would love some input. And, of course, as this is for home-brew, its free to use. Since this is very much a first effort, I would really like any critique you'd care to offer...

+Jens Larsen Perhaps Dresden inspired but I like it... I hadn't really thought about mutable borders. The forested barriers seemed natural and something that would make it seem like passing through a dream if you were on the ground. Its hard to see, but the pass between Autumn and Winter is a cave system and the passage between Winter and Spring is a rather long bridge (like London Bridge). Winter is, in effect, fenced off by its own volition as the nastier Seelie live there (the Unseelie living outside the Encircling Mountains). But the idea of mutable borders DOES bear some thinking about! The only rule I have so far with regards to planar character is that "All magic, arcane and divine requires a Constitution check (DC 10 + spell level); on a failure, roll on the Wild Magic table from the PHB." I felt like those consequences would be more non-lethal and give the game a bit of spice. I already use that table for Autofail when casting. But the mutable borders thing...hmmm...

Experimenting with creating a Dysonesque dungeon map in Photoshop. Of course, I'm not crazy-awesome like +Dyson Logos and so rather than hand-draw the cross hatching, I use a texture (from the 2015 Profantasy Annual), layer effects, and an adjustment layer. Photoshop actually draws the hatching in real-time as I draw my rooms on the layer mask--looks pretty nifty to watch. About the only things that are hand-drawn are the cliff hatching and the natural stairs to the upper right. I used a hex grid instead of the typical square grid to be different, and because I like GURPS.

This is meant to be a fortified set of buildings set into an alcove on a cliff side, not unlike a Mesa Verde type cliff dwelling. I think the old Angus McBride Rolemaster covers are an inspiration to me--they've been so for quite a while.

Nice to see people using hexes instead of squares
