Last week was my birthday, so here's an extra big map (with an extra long name as well)!
This is actually one of the first maps I started working on in this style, and it shaped the direction I went in.
But it took me a looong time to finish, and sometimes I wondered if I ever would at all. Yet here it is, and I'm very happy with it!
I created this map for my DnD campaign, where I wanted a maze-like adventure. Looking around online for tips I found that straight-up mazes are boring to play. But the fun could be found in letting people find points of interest, hints and semi-hidden routes. Then, by connecting all the dots they can find the exit.
Creating borders, windroses and other elements for maps is a lot of fun! Now I know why you cartography-inclined guys spend so much time on them ;)
