I’ve been working on the Rite Publishing project Coliseum Morpheuon and it’s finally seen the light of day! The high level Pathfinder adventure features a series of fiendish challenges and I drew the maps. Of course this means a whole selection of new fantasy map packs hitting the shelves. First out of the bag is the Clockwork Maze:
My Fantastic Maps range of fantasy maps is on sale this week (all 30% off, and the bundle reduced even more). The map packs have shiny new covers like this:
Each map pack has a jpg map sized for use with maptool or other virtual tabletop programs (mostly with a 100px grid but a couple of earlier maps are 75px), along with a printable multi-page map pack if you want to use it at a gametable. Many of the map packs contain maptool files with the VBL drawn in and grids and lighting set up for either 4e or OGL games. All of them will have these files included in early September (they’re all done, just not quite uploaded yet). If you buy now, you will get the new files with the maptool files when they are updated – so no reason to hold off.
Enjoy! Sale ends September 1st. You can find all the map packs here.
The guys at Fantasy Mapmaker are having a cartography contest and giving away $175 of Profantasy vouchers as the prizes. I’m one of the judges – along with lots of great cartographers. The deadline is August 18th and you can find all the rules here. Good luck!
Some time ago, when I was starting out at freelance cartography, I was asked to draw one of the oddest worlds I’d heard of. The world existed on a turning cog, and the elemental planes span around it on interlocking wheels. Every day, the world span one notch. The seas cascaded over the edge into the darkness where the great wheels that turned the world clicked eternally on.
