IMPROVED! Ilshara - New Fantasy Campaign World Setting

Post by seskis281 »

I already posted this in the general discussion area, but I think it belongs here as well.

I've been working for some time on a World Setting called Ilshara: Lands of Exile and am nearing completion on it. I naturally queried to TLG as to whether they accept submissions, but I suspect the best route is to offer this myself as a free resource for my fellow C&C enthusiasts.

My website is just now getting started, so it will be a few weeks before I get all my material in pdf and downloadable form - really going to be tricky with my maps.

Anyway, I have posted some introductory material, some pix of the maps, a history, all just as teaser information for what I'll be putting out there in the coming weeks.

Take a look and let me know what you think!

hey--

the maps look great, for being hand drawn. have you considered digital projections? i have been doing cartography for about 20+ years, and would love to try my hand at making your maps into digital artwork.

i have a map thread on enworld cartography and artwork forums. also there is this page for some maps. granted these are mostly done with CC2 software, but i am switching over to coreldraw and work with that software mostly.

here is a lot of work from the corel draw program. take a look at the city of bryest.

Hello my friend!

I welcome anyone who wishes to contribute or add to my project. I would love to be able to offer digital maps to accompany the site as well. My intention with this setting is to have open content from myself and whomever finds this world intriguing. I myself have always been a hand-drawer for my gaming cartography, but of course what looks good sitting before me is always problematic when attempting to transfer to something usable online.

So please, I certainly welcome a collaborator on maps - if you want I can provide scans of the sections of the maps to work off of.

My sincere thanks!

John William Wright

okay, so i got to work on the maps, and here is a work in progress. i don't know if this is the style you are looking for, but i am going for a basic overview look to it. i'm trying out a few more things but this is just a teaser, if you will. let me know what you think and we'll work it out.

here's a couple of links
