Cartographer's Annual Vol 1

The Cartographer's Annual Vol 1

Template Example 1

June ’07

The June issue of the Cartographer's Annual gives you a selection of templates that will make your maps look like they've been drawn on ancient parchment or paper. Different bitmaps provide that certain textured look and a variety of different sheets, tools and symbols can be applied to make the background look freshly cut, tattered, torn, burned, stained, previously written on, or many other things.

Template Example 2

The templates enable you to create beautiful player hand-outs for your games or illustrative maps for your own world and game publications. And if there's anything you're missing, the June issue also includes detailed instructions how to use and customize the templates further.

For larger examples see the Gallery.
