. . . wherein Paul Gorman plays with ideas for old-school fantasy roleplaying games
Did you draw that on graph paper? Also, I'm a little curious about what's going on in the bottom left hand corner where you haven't inked around the bottom of that one room.
Very well done, I like both of your maps a great deal!BTW, what software do you use to create your (also excellent) wilderness maps?
@David, I did draw it on graph paper. I burned the graph lines out in the scan, and manually dotted it. From now on, I'll be using dotted graph paper [TIF]. The bit in the bottom left is two sets of stairs entering the level. I didn't ink around them so they'd stand-out more. There's also a break in the border inking at the exit stairway near the top.
@Carter, thanks. I drew the wilderness maps in a general purpose vector illustration program called Intaglio. The same thing could be done in Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape. If I had the money to drop on a license, I'd probably be using Illustrator.
Very nice.I generally ink as I go - single draft maps directly in ink. Makes it a much quicker run.
@Dyson, thanks. Do you also do the Times crossword in ink? Maybe I'll give ink-first a try tonight.I love your maps, by the way. They're beautiful and inspiring. I have been (so far successfully) restraining myself from stealing your crosshatch pattern.
