Zeitgeist is here. This week we heard all the buzz as the ENnie nominees were announced, but ENWorld has long ago ventured forth from just being the busiest D&D community on the net to publishing great content too. I picked up the job of illustrating the world map and several regional maps for the new campaign setting that’s coming out shortly – the world of Zeitgeist:
The world map features pretty heavily in the GM and player guides and there’s a city map that appears in the GM’s guide. There are also a couple of sneak peaks of other maps I did for the first adventure arc if you look carefully at the trailer video, but I’ll wait until those are in a published supplement before I post them here.
The world of Zeitgeist is one of steampunk and grit. Fell magics battle with mighty monsters of steel and brass. The art in the series gives the world a great feel. Deep in the jungles men carve out cities from the virgin woods. One such city is the city of Flint (I’ve removed the labels to minimise any spoilers):
It was great fun to work up some cogs and wheels, and to create another full blown city map. The different areas all have their own character and hopefully the layout, houses and organisation reflect that – right down to the switchback roads leading up into the jungle peaks.
If you want to check out the Zeitgeist world (and seriously – the GM and player guides are free so you’ve got no excuse) then check out the ENWorld page as the world develops. I’ll be posting another update once the other maps I’ve done go live and I can show off a little more of this remarkable world.
