Old School Maps

Post Thu Oct 13, 2011 1:19 pm

For my first ever Basic Fantasy Rpg adventure I've gone retro with my mapping style! What do you think?

Looks good!
The problem with doing something really stupid to impress people is that they may just be impressed by how stupid you really are.

As soon as I read your post I thought 'they better be blue!' and indeed they were.

Your campaign is awesome BTW.. I was perusing it tonight. You obviously put alot of work into it.. nice job!

Nice! What software did you use to produce them?

I make my maps in CC3. It nicely compensates for my absence of artistic talent.

If the map is blue, it must be true. Nice stuff.

On a side note, is there a specific reason the old maps were in blue? Was this a printing/copying function, or was it a specific style choice?

Don't know how accurate this is but it answers your question.
