Haven't shared anything here in a while. This is the map for my 1 page dungeon contest entry. It may be more generally useful than that, though.

The alien entity part of it may make it more or less useful and can safely be ignored or exaggerated.

That would be an interesting adventure world.
But unfortunately very difficult to map.

I read a book some years back about a world like this. Called Helix I think? This also reminds me of a video game I played, with world made up of a series of fragmented nesting shells.

I've just rediscovered a map idea from a few years ago that I'd forgotten about. It is a fantasy campaign map centred on the village I live in (Desford, Leicestershire in the UK). I started with a standard internet map (doesn...

I've just started a pre-order for some large A1 sheets printed with a ¼" grid overlaid with a heavier 1" grid. Ideal for use with a wide range of games but especially suited for Car WarsTM maps. The pre-order runs until 4th M...

Not too sure I like the blocks and the hatching together. It looks cluttered and the blocks look a bit funny. I'll have to experiment more.

Here are a couple of sample pages for the first Unfurnished Dungeon. 

https://rthorm.wordpress.com/2015/04/21/samples-from-an-unfurnished-dungeon/

Do you think this is something you might be interested in?  What kinds of things would you be looking for? Should there be further detail? Anything else that would make this more useful for you?

Does anyone know if Campaign Cartographer 3 and Dungeon Designer 3 will work on a Mac using VMWare Fusion?

It bugs me that travel is such a pivotal part of using maps in an rpg, but very few systems give any thought to naval travel. I'd be curious to get some feedback on the system I'm proposing.
My PCs are planning to leave Haven after just one quest. It’s not because they didn’t like it, but the party’s Captain is playing a cleric of Tali. As such he doesn’t like staying in one place for too long. After putting a lo...

I present to you, #MeetingMazes. Did two in this meeting: one square, and a one-way fractal maze.

It's constructed using the basic structure of a fractal diagram. Stylized, of course.

About this community

Maybe you create maps for a quick game this weekend, or maybe you design them for sale. Maybe you're wrestling with Photoshop, Gimp or Campaign Cartographer and looking for tips, or maybe you're looking for a source for real-life floor plans. This group is for amateur and pro map-makers alike, with focus on games like role-playing, miniatures, or board games. WHERE DO I POST...? - The cool map I made and want to share? In Maps for Sharing. - A tutorial on drawing maps? In Resources and Tips. - A challenge to draw inn or taverns? In Friday Five-Minute Maps and Other Challenges. - A set of GIMP brushes I made? In Resources and Tips. - A description of a map-making software I sell? In Directed Promo.

This is what I have so far for the +Inkwell Ideas​ lava contest. I'm hoping for a bit more creativity in a couple additional ones. Then I'll scan them in for cleanup.

Steve Jackson's Sorcery! 3: The Seven Serpents comes out today! Here's one of the encounter environments I recently created for it. This Black Elf encampment was designed to feel like a weatherbeaten caravan holed up on the side of a lonely trackway deep within the dusty plains of Kakhabad.

The arrival of Inkwell Idea's Geomorph design contest got me experimenting with the Dyson Logos Geomorph format, so that I could enter something.  The result, I have decided to change format, so that the geomorphs I produce f...

First map in a while, inspired by the geomorph format all the kids seem into these days.

Something that could be used in a game: John Soane and Joseph Gandy (1830) Cut-away perspective depicting Bank of England as Pompeii-esque ruin.

Freaking awesome. Thank you so very much. Large enough to allow for some tactical movement in game now.

I tried to clarify a bit the subject I posted about yesterday. I think I currently favor axonometric / isometric drawing, giving up the possibility of using 3d models. Basically, introducing the necessary correction to make buildings look reasonably right when using miniatures seems too complex to me. But I guess I will experiment more and see what happens :)
