How I use the Flanaess map in Realm Works

The 3000px square maps are now all available here!
Time to show how I use them in Realm Works. There are many different ways to do things in Realm Works. This example is based on my early test model using slightly bigger maps, but after reading the RW manual I decided to make the final version 3000px to keep things flowing. I used the square overview map to place pins leading to the squares.

Created a new Topic Category so I could easily sort and find the maps. I’m using two versions of each area one with all the details and text as a GM reference.

And another with just symbols to use during games. The game map can host map pins leading to all the things the players find during the game.

This works for me as a way to keep the overview and still keep things within the capabilities of Realm Works. I use my Online Map as a compliment for the really large picture.

Flanaess in 3000 pixel squares…

Squares w numbers-01

Just finished my latest project, so today I used the day for some Flaness work I had on my agenda – bite sized squares for use with Realm Works. Each square is 3000 pixels across and will come in several varieties, first out is terrain only.  This set will be followed by squares with hexes, symbols and text. This so you can have unmarked ones for player maps and other with everything. Legend and credits and heraldry are removed to show as much of the map as possible. They are made using my raw high resolution and then compressed into JPG’s for best results. Each square are around 1MB in size, so they should fit into your RW campaign.

You can grab them here in zip format or from my GHSYNC Bittorrent Share. The next set will be ready in a few days.

 

 

Heraldry

Heraldry export titleTime to tick of another of the items on my bucket list, heraldry!

Here is a zip file with 237 shields in PNG format with a transparent background  800 pixels across.
The quality varies a lot. Some are old and created long before I had much skills, and where only intended to be used small scale on the map. A few are small works of art in themselves being my own designs either based on text, fan ideas or just personal inspiration.  Use the ones you like and discard the rest!

The file is 10.3MB is size.

Flanaess in 24×36!

24x36 print layout numbered

Time for some Greyhawk map upkeep. First out is my Flaness map in 24 x 36 pdf’s. This is the map only, I had to remove some extras in order to squeeze it into 12 24×36 parts. Hex layer is hidden but available using the layers panel, in case you want to view or print a hex map.

Yopu can find the PDF’s here: http://ghmaps.net/greyhawk-maps/flanaess-24×36-inch/

Time for a short update!

My work on the Southlands are in an intense period, with textures, city map and the foundation for the whole continent taking shape in parallel. There will be a more in depth progress report soon, and even more for the backers of Southlands. It is a lot of work, but it is coming along nicely with more and more details added each day.

final map

I’ve also taken a bit  time off to create a PDF of my hexed Flanaess map. it is available from my Map Repository  or direct download from my Dropbox. The PDF is layered and weighs in at 283MB.

 

Other world mapper 2

Other World Mapper Kickstarter  is on its last day. Its been a highly successful run blasting through all the initial stretch goals and then some! So there are only a few hours left to jump onboard early on this promising map maker tool.

In the background my plans for next year are taking shape, and its gearing up for a major year with several interesting projects spanning different worlds and topics. A couple of the themes for next year are “Classic Vistas” and “Back to the Flanaess”, a new website will also be launched to host this and other things. More on this in December when the Southlands are done and its time for the next year outlook.

More Atlas pages….

Page numbering-01First I must again thank you all for all the support and great comments coming my way, it is fantastic!

Normally this is a rather solitary occupation few people around me even understand what I’m doing, but thanks to the ENnie nomination, that has changed.

In the midst of all the things going on right now I have made three more Atlas pages are added and can be found on the Atlas page!
