Roughly a year ago, I discovered LegendKeeper, a really cool tool that lets you zoom around your setting in a mad mix of Google Maps and a custom wiki. This is a private "world" instance that's shareable with my players. I don't actually upload much in the way of images, but I dug up this birds eye view of Jonstown and threw in some wiki article text so you could see how it works. A few months after my discovery, the Argan Argar Atlas was made free in support of Jonstown Compendium creations. I was dismayed to discover that AAA was a paginated PDF, and even more horrified to discover that each page was actually an imprecise composition of 5-7 images. Unfortunately, that's all I had to work with, and work I did. Many hours later, I finally had a map that reaches LegendKeeper's 15K pixel maximum. There are several ugly seams and photoshop splotches, but I managed to piece it all together at the AAA PDF's original pixel density which means all placenames are fully legible. I'm sharing this now for a couple reasons: I have a new RQG campaign, and I think I can finally put all that old work to good use! I'm really excited by my players' level of engagement so far, and their characters are shaping up splendidly. We start in a couple weeks! If you don't mind that I've only been running games in Glorantha for a year, we could accept one or two more players! I saw the teasers for a new Matt Ryan map of Dragon Pass. I'm thrilled to see the level of detail, although I request for the love of all that is holy: make a high resolution digital image available for purchase! I fully intend to use it as a digital campaign aid as seen above. I'd prefer not to have to piece together another PDF, and the AAA PDF is a tad blurry at 100% zoom level. A "Community" update for LegendKeeper is imminent. This will allow anyone to browse a "public" world created by a LK user (or licensed by LegendKeeper with an IP owner), and logged in users may be allowed to make a copy of it for their own purposes. I think Glorantha is a great candidate, either officially (as a sort of interactive version of Nick Brooke's index of Jonstown Compendium scenarios) or as unofficial Free Fan Material. (If I'm volunteering myself for setting that up, I accept!)
