As a thank you for our loyal Annual customers, and to make up for the free version of the November hex style (included in CC3 Update 11), we have released an extra Annual issue. It expands on TJ Vandel’s DeRust Overland style of September.
The already huge collection of more than 400 symbols of mountains, hills, and other natural features, gets extended by two more symbol sets of different colorations and textures. Download the December bonus issue from your registration page.
The expansion pack DeRust Overland includes
- 464 new bitmap symbols in four new catalogs
- 2 new bitmap fills
- 3 new drawing tools
- 2 updated template wizards
- 1 example map (fcw and png)
- 1 3-page mapping explaining the new features
P.S.: The re-subscription offer for the Annual 2014 will become available shortly. We’ll keep you posted.
The Character Artist 3 add-on to Campaign Cartographer 3 is coming soon. As well as portraits for character sheets, you can also create card standees.
Here is a PDF of characters you can download free for your own use.
ProFantasy will be at Dragonmeet, London’s friendliest gaming convention, coming Saturday (December 7th). We are looking forward to a day of games, seminars, chat and general gaming goodness.
We are also doing a special offer to support all those people running public games at Dragonmeet. If you are a GM hosting a game at the convention you get 50% off any purchase of ProFantasy and Noteboard products.
If you want to hear myself (Ralf) talk about maps, paper minis, and the Noteboard, join the seminar “Multimedia in Gaming” (12pm to 12:30pm in the Council Chamber) which also features composer James Semple and artist Andrew Hepworth.
The December Annual issue is now available from each subscriber’s registration page. This issue completes the trio of drawing styles based in the 1930s Baedeker travel guides: Floorplans, city street maps, and now overland maps.
The 1930s Overland style uses an uncommon (for CC3) method to depict hills and mountains, and in doing so the mapping guide takes a close look at the Symbols Along/Escarpment command in CC3.
While the December entry, this Annual issue is not the last one for this year. We’ll be releasing a bonus issue towards mid-December, expanding on the DeRust overland style.
The latest Annual issue is now available for subscribers from their registration page. The November Annual consists of a new hex mapping style based on the Bitmap Overland style that comes with CC3.
Templates, symbols and tools allow you to create a hex-based setting map in minutes, giving you that old-school explorer feeling with modern graphics! Check out this sample map of “The Warring Isles”:
We’ve just released the October issue of the Cartographer’s Annual 2013. Check out another beautiful black and white style by Pär Lindström, this time for floorplans and dungeons.

Check out the freshly released September issue of the Cartographer’s Annual 2013. TJ Vandel, an amazing fantasy cartographer and Cartographer’s Guild regular (user name Schwarzkreuz), created a huge selection of bitmap symbols for your mapping pleasure. We compiled them into this new overland style.
The bags are packed, stock and supplied enroute, hectic activity is slowly giving way to contemplative travel mood… meaning GenCon is around the corner.
If you are one of the lucky visitors, come find us at booth (#101) directly across the big Paizo booth. We are sharing with our sister company Pelgrane Press. Stop by pick up the latest Annuals, any other products you might be missing, a demo of Character Artist 3 or just a quick chat about mapping.
Please bear with us if we respond a little more slowly in the coming days than usual. GenCon takes a lot of attention and energy.
Joe has been so kind to create a video tutorial to go with this month’s Annual issue (High Space System Maps). Way to go, Joe!
We have just released the August issue of the Cartographer’s Annual 2013. Check out the easy-to-use sci fi style for creating stunning star system charts.
