Greyhawkery blog

Time to promote my friend Mortellans blog Greyhawkery. He writes many great articles on Greyhawk and in his post on June 9th he mentions me and my Greyhawk maps. He asks when I will get to Ull. For the few of you Greyhawk fans who are not aware of the fact that Mortellan are an Greyhawk expert in general and THE authority on this not much heard of Greyhawk realm far of in the west.

The comments functions was broken so I use my own blog to first say that if you have any interest in Greyhawk you have to read what Mortellan writes on his blog it is up to date and always interesting.

So now now to when i’m going to map Ull. I’m currently working on the Hellfurnaces and the Sea of Dust, which will probably take me a week or so. But in the meantime I will plan the way north by researching the Dry Steppes, Ull and the Paynims.

The actual mapping of Ull already began long ago when i did the terrain of Ull for a map in Oerth Journal. That was the first version of Ull and when I did it my skills wasn’t as good as they are today and I hadn’t done much research. This winter when I did the Barrier Peaks I had a new go at the terrain of Ull and below is a screenshot of the next try to create the looks of Ull.

Ull2

Its a very rough preview render right from Bryce, but it will you a chance to see where I’m heading. Hopefully I can start to improve on this in a week or two with some expert help from the best Sage of the West 🙂

 

The Realmsound Project

Time for me to promote a Kickstarter that I have backed!

The Realmsound Project

Orange County Gaming Group have set out to try and bring custom fantasy audio to fantasy tabletop gaming. What got me interested were first the quality of the samples they offered and especially a couple of the samples.  Listen to the market vendor as he is shouting out what he has to offer, wonderful to hear for a Greyhawk fan!

They also intend for the sounds to be FREE for everyone to use. That is a very interesting pitch and I will keep a close eye to see if this one will be successful. I’m thinking about which business model to use for my next project after the Flaness maps. If its possible to run a Kickstarter to fund the time it takes for me to make the maps and to run the website, it would be a very good way for me to continue my work. So please consider making a pledge for the Realmsound project.

Bright Desert map

I have recently received a couple of requests for a map covering the Bright Lands and its surroundings. So I made one as a part of the preview maps series.

Dagger Rock occurs twice, its the western one that is correct. The eastern Dagger Rock should be Gai Hur. I have corrected so future maps will be right. I’m sorry for the mistake and thanks go to the sharp eyed John Karns!

So when you’re there adventuring please check to see if the maps needs to be changed 😉

This weekend I will be adventuring with my gaming group at the Wailing halls near Narwell, they got there last session, so this time it will be going in and confront the horrors.

Good luck everyone in your games and I hope you bring home lots of treasure and even more XP!

Tilvanot Peninsula preview map

Couldn’t hold on to this one so here it comes the Scarlet Brotherhoods homeland the infamous Tilvanot Peninsula. Of all the work I’ve done so far this is what I’m most proud of. When I started this project this was the part of Greyhawk I wanted to map more than any other. I had a vision of how I thought it looked like and after about a hundred or so hours on it I’m really proud of the result.

Here comes the next little part of the Flanaess to take a closer look at, the Olman Isles. In the 590’s that I’m currently mapping they are part of the  Scarlet Brotherhood’s empire.

Next will be the Scarlets heartlands the Tilvanot Peninsula, that will be ready in a day or two.

 

Amedio southern preview map

Here comes a first look at the southern part of the enormous Amedio Jungle.  It covers several groups of islands including the Mist Kingdoms ruled by their Dragon Lords. There are also the Olman realm of Xamaclan one of the few surviving parts of the once mighty Olman Empire. Flanaess Full Map130706

 

Next will be more of the old Olman Empire, first the Olman Isles and then the heartlands of the new rulers of this part of the Flanaess, the Scarlet Brotherhood.

Amedio central preview map

Here comes the next bit of the enormous Amedio Jungle, the central parts. It covers famous places like Tamoachan and site ripe for adventure like Chetanicatla.

Flanaess Full Map130706

The Olman Empire have left many features that are now covered by the jungles but few of them are known today. So you might need to plan some adventuring in these lands to uncover them, I hope my mapping can be a good base for you to add your features to the area. As usual please comment or contact me if you spot errors or missing features.

 

Northern Amedio preview map

Time for a closer look at the northern part of the vast Amedio Jungle. This part of my series of previews covering bits and pieces of my upcoming Flaness map. This way I hope to have as many eyes as possible checking my work for errors and missing things. So if you notice anything please comment or send me a message using the contact form.
