Mapping for Innsfjord

Earlier today I posted on normal Google + about trying to learn how to do the mapping for myself instead of using programs like these are the results so far.

I've gotten some nice constructive comments so far for the first piece and will be editing it again to suit.


  1. The look is fine (I would probably make the grid a little less prominent), but the layout is so linear... ;)

  2. I'm digging it. I've started creating maps that are a bit more straightforward (linear) just for ease of explanation while dming. What program are you using? What i've done latetly is draw a map on blank white paper no grids, then scan it touch it up and add a layer of grid underneath, due to not having the grid to start off with, its interesting sometimes where it ends up. some lines will be in a middle of a square etc.

    1. Been using Inkscape (a free, open source vector art program), Photoshop CS2 (my college edition I got in college) and Google Photo for that effects. There is a tutorial I need to link that I've been using to learn it. It is a little cumbersome at first but gets very good later on.

The Robathen's Coin Parts 1 -3

A long time ago I released a short story on drivethrufiction called "The Rabathen's Coin - An Arame Tale" that was meant to be the start of a series staring a mysterious thief named Arame.  Well, five years later and I have sold maybe six copies.  With that in mind I figured I might as well break it up into two or three parts and post in on the blog.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.

The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!

Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
