    [WIP] Sylthi

    As some folks may remember, I've been working on Esrolia material. I shared this rough draft map over on the Facebook groups recently, and thought some of y'all who don't get over there often may enjoy it. It's one district of the small city Sylthi, which I've been exploring and writing about. This project's something more or less on the backburner, but I find working on visual elements a fun way to relax, so I keep chipping away at it. Feedback or questions are welcomed, but I'm mostly sharing because I like how this turned out. As I work through more maps I'll probably share them in this thread, too. This is very much a rough draft, and will probably be revised several times as the City Guide keeps developing and changing. At the moment, my focus for Jonstown material is writing issues of MOTM, then probably Treasures of Glorantha volume 2, then something else (probably a piece called Melikaphkaz: the O-God of Traps). If you'd like to know more about what I've been up to (and see some more Sylthi concept doodles) I wrote about it over on my blog recently. The posts are long, but I hope pretty comprehensive. I'm happy to field questions about that stuff too, if folks have them.
  2. I'm running Defending Apple Lane this coming weekend and I'm trying to reconcile the various maps that are available. The black and white map from my RQ3 Apple Lane module and attractive semi-3D map on pages 70-71 of the Gamemaster Adventures are easy to match up. The problem is with the map in the PDF of the Gamemaster Adventures (CHA0429 GM map pack page 4). This map is labeled "Apple Lane Orchards" and it includes locations for the 5 tenant farms (1. Rastolf, 2. Ivo Stone Brook, 3. Rotroot, 4. Caleb the Black, and 5. Kalla). While it is nice to know where these tenant farms are located and to see the areas for the hides of land, I can't figure out how to align the roads and directions of this map with the map on pages 70-71. Problem #1. None of the maps indicate compass directions. Problem #2. The GM Adventures map on pages 70-71 (and the older RQ3 map) both show three roads leading into and out of Apple Lane. The Apple Lane Orchards map has four roads. So which roads on the Apple Lane map match up to the Apple Lane Orchards map? The Apple Lane map has one road marked #3. The Locations key identifies this as "North Street." Which road on the Apple Lane Orchards map is supposed to be "North Street?" Problem #3. The two maps don't appear to have same number or arrangement of buildings in the central ares of the hamlet of Apple Lane. Is there any way to reconcile the two? Can anyone help explain this?
  3. 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!)
  4. As I'm comparing different maps of Dragon Pass [Sartar, to be precise] I ask myself "what level of detail is the average Gloranthan campaign map?" Are you playing with the highly detailed maps and whenever your characters are pass through some tiny location you end up here on the forum or in some of the books and do your research? [e.g. map of Colymar Tribe from the GM's Screen Pack] Are you running your campaign with broad bushstrokes, so you only have the major, big places in mind; overland travel isn't very important and you put the characters in action without going into much details and whatabouts concerning villages and places on the way. [e.g. map of Dragon Pass 1625 ST from the GM's Screen Pack] Are you running your campaign in a defined and "closed" region, so that your characters aren't moving much and you can go deep in the details of the location [e.g. the 77pages long fanmade description of the Arfritha Vale] What type of using maps is your campaign style?
  5. Hey there, A few months ago I heard on the KARTAS podcast that Ken Hite's own custom hellenistic 13th Age campaign featured only "in character" maps, i.e. either the players draw their own maps based on the GM's description of their travels (or what NPCs tell them), or, if they want to see some cool hand-outs, they need to go find some cartographer who has maps to sell (or steal). I thought that this is pretty cool -- it's kind of a shame to hold off on maps, because frankly everybody loves maps, especially Gloranthan maps which are often super cool, but on the other hand, this also makes maps even more special since players have to do some work before the GM lets them see any. So of course I figured "what if did that for my upcoming RQG campaign?". But first I have some questions: 1. Did anybody do that? (even if it's for other games) Any feedback? 2. What is, even, the general availability of maps in Glorantha? I assume that you probably find maps for sale at any good Lhankor Mhy temple, but where else? How expensive would they be? How common would they be? (for instance, there are probably maps in Boldhome's palace, but what about, say, Queen Leika's residence? Or Apple Lane's thane's house?) 3. How detailed would Gloranthan maps be? How far would they cover? For instance, would Queen Leika's maps feature landmarks in other tribes' territories? Would they have a lot of information on, say, Lunar Tarsh or Esrolia? Is Prax even accurately mapped out, or would it be mostly vague maps that convey the general knowledge that "it's a couple days' ride South from Pimper's Block to the Devil's Marsh"? Etc... Thanks!
  6. Drawing maps for your games can be fun, but sometimes it's convenient to use generators to speed up the process. I have recently tried out some of the planet map generators that's available, both free and commercial, to see what they have to offer for RPGs. Planet Map Generator The Planet Map Generator is a simple web-based generator. To get the actual land forms, you rely completely on the random generator to come up with something good, ie. landforms cannot be edited. The only way to alter land outlines is to change the waterline level. It’s still one of my favourites among the free generators, however, mainly because it produces some of the best looking continents. Images of the map can be exported in several different projections and color schemes. With a bit of work in Photoshop or Gimp the end result can turn out very good. I often find the options Bump map on land only, Non-linear altitude scaling and Make more wrinkly maps add a nice touch to the maps. http://topps.diku.dk/torbenm/maps.msp Read the rest of the review on FrostByte's blog: http://www.frostbytebooks.com/#propaganda
  7. World war 1 The Great War I will run a scenario during world war 1, The Great War and I am looking for good pictures for the atmosphere 1916-1917 in the Verdun area. When looking on internet it’s hard to know if it’s the right uniform and from the right time. Especially of soldiers from American Expeditionary Forces (AEF) and french soldiers and their camps Military camps French people Military nurses Verdun, Houdelaincourt, Gondrecourt, Domrémy-la-Pucelle, Bazoille-sur-Meuse (the American's 18th Base Hospital), Colline du Mort-Homme (Dead Man's Hill), Maps over towns and military camps French Berliet truck Somebody who can help med were to find it. (I have bought Chaosiums “No mans land”) Henrik
  8. We've just added William Church's instantly evocative Dragon Pass and Prax maps (from RuneQuest 2) to the Chaosium Redbubble store. Available as posters and wall art, and more. http://rdbl.co/2cjB7JU
  9. To celebrate some work successes, my wife wishes to celebrate the occasion, by giving me some hobby funds -- with this money I was seriously contemplating picking up the six map pack, ideally to mount on the wall, as well as possibly the 24 map set of the entire Gloranthan world. I wanted to see what the opinions were of the maps, and there usefulness (primarily the 12x18 maps) in gaming, for those who have purchased them. I have searched online and haven't seen much talk of them. I ask as I know the PDF of the Atlas (which I own) are not vector based and using zoom doesn't net the best result. Thanks!
