It might have slipped by silently due to the holidays, but the first issue of the Annual 2014 stalwartly appeared on January first. It’s a beautiful area map style by Michal Cross, as seen in the Achtung! Cthulhu adventures by Modiphius Entertainment.

You can subscribe to the Cartographer’s Annual 2014 here.

The accompanying mapping guide also takes you through the steps to take a real-world map from an online map service and convert it to a WW2-era style map in CC3. Here is an example:
Freusburg on the Sieg

DeRust ExpansionAs 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 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”:
