Mmmm... Holmesian goodness!
Glad you liked the map! All kudos should go out to Peter Bradley, for he is the artiste... I was simply the monkey on his back who didn't shut up until it was perfect.
If you liked that, wait till you see the next map he's working on... let me just say that so far, he and I and Bob himself are the only ones who have seen that map...
Very cool. What I liked about most of the maps in RPG products is how they draw you in. The maps for the computer games I've played are too, I don't know, "clinical" in feel. They tell you where you want to go, but they don't have much "life" to them. The Southern Reaches map has that "life" to it. You can imagine traversing the region with your character, or in my case, having your players' characters adventure there.
