Quick note - More experiments in digital mapping

The way station of the Apelgia Mountains sits in the mid point of the high pass between Piaugh and the mining village of Rook's Bend. The way station acts as a mail depot, inn (floor space only) and guard post for those who travel the pass. The way station is operated by the the Collation of Neark Merchants and is manned year long by 5 human mercenaries who are paid a handsome sum and are considered honorable enough.  

There is a trap-door under the bear-skin rug in the guard quarters that leads to a a small cavern system and the ruins of an ancient crypt ... currently being used as cold storage by the way station.


This map was made using the same tutorial as the map I posted yesterday and map elements by Bogie over at the Cartographers' Guild. Any thoughts our suggestions are greatly sought after.

The floor and grasslands as well as the hills were all my own design as I played around with the map.

If I can fit this one and yesterday's on a half sheet they may (together) comprise next week's "One Page Romp" for Patreon.

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



I.
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…

Gate File 001 - First Approach
This is the next and the big project for the month of February for my Patreon and the one I want to push for public release in March/April.  The Gate File is being developed for 5th Edition SRD and will incorporate Modern rules and make suggestions as to that fact.















The Smoke Giant's Heir
A second 5th Edition SRD release, The Smoke Giant's Heir was originally meant to be published last July but ran into a number of difficulties including lost maps, Scribus and libre files becoming corrupted due to system failures as my tower died a slow and horrible death.  The Text is written out for this one but one map still needs to be redrawn and the layout needs to be put through Serif now that I have it back.


More Fantasy AgeI don't know yet what I want to do exactly but I want to start doing a fan version of my favorite MMO using Green Ronin's Fantasy Age system.  Obviously this will be a "serial numbers filed off" deal for the possibility …
