The dark and foreboding wood is a staple of fantasy literature and our own folklore. Continue reading “How To Draw Forests”
Give a man a dungeon and he’ll kill PCs for a day. Give a man the tools to build his own dungeons and he’ll happily be killing PCs for a lifetime. Continue reading “Tilesets!”
In the last Kobold Courier, the kobolds of Open Design revealed the final Midgard logo, completing the set. So here it is in all it’s glory. As befits a world born of fire and ice, this one is bitterly cold.
This was designed for use in print at 2.5 inches wide. The smaller scale meant that the dragon’s head needed to be scaled up so it would still read well at small sizes. This also meant that the central letters needed to be nice and large.
We found out earlier this year that the world of Zobeck is really the world of Midgard, and the new material for the setting would be carrying the new branding in the future. I got the gig to design the logo, and this turned out to be not one logo but many. Now more of the logos have been revealed, I can show them off here (spoiler – there’s still one more to come).
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.
