Western lands

Post Mon Apr 22, 2019 1:17 pm

Quick question;
In the download section I find a map of the western lands. Is there other maps? Is there any eastern lands? A complete world map?

Thanks!

Nope. The Western Lands are a sketch of a campaign world, with just enough going on that the GM can run with it, but not so much that you have to take a social studies course to run it.

In my (limited, I admit) experience, these "partial" settings are actually more useful than full global worlds. Although I use the D&D Mystara setting, I ignore the whole world maps and just use the campaign map from the Isle of Dread adventure. Then, if I want to use parts of Western Lands, or Wilderlands, or Greyhawk, I can just have the pcs travel off the Mystara map and unlock a whole new setting area.

I just think that a whole world is going to end up with lots of space you never use, or even parts that one annoying player 😛 will want to visit that you and the rest of the group arent interested in. Building the world from blocks of different settings is a more productive way, to me.

So I'm preparing to DM BF1 Morgansfort over Roll20.
Sadly the Olde fortress maps from the pdf does'nt rezise well. So I made new ones in InkScape.

If you plan to PLAY this scenario, don't look at the maps :lol:

I have the .svg file if someone is interested in improving the maps further.

cheers!

Those are nice maps! Oh and since I didn't think a new thread was needed and it is slightly related; anyone know where I can find more info on the Dragonclaw barony?
