More and more beautiful user maps are appearing on the Profantasy forum, if you’re not regularly following the posts there, here is an overview:
Grimur Fjeldsted has updated his Naturns city map, done in the Jon Roberts Cities style.
Forum member HadrianIV has created this beautiful regional map “Sea of Tears” in the Herwin Wielink overland style.
Community member soldyne created this map of the “World River” as his very first map in CC3.
Henrie61 drew this “quick and dirty” town map to try our the Jon Roberts Cities style and was impressed how quickly you can create a beautiful map this way.
The Jon Roberts Cities style seems very popular as shown by the “Yellowmire” map created by Dargurd. The unusual, swampy location of the city comes acress very well.
In a change of pace Modric created this black and white map of “Avern” and added a great parchment style filter for a great player handout. The style used is from the Cartographer’s Annual Vol 2.
And last but not least, forum member anomiecoalition drew this neat little Al Quadim-flavoured dungeon, using resources from DD3, the CSUAC art collection and Dundjinni forums.
Kudos to all the great maps our users have been creating!
The first thing I thought of when I saw this map by CC3 user Gerard Serre was Ultima IV, one of the greatest computer games ever made. The layout of the town could be lifted straight out of that game and I see my little pixel avatar wandering around the buildings (C)hatting up each and every passerby.
Gerard’s map is in 4 parts and done as a 25mm scale miniature battle map with Dungeon Designer 3. Overlaid with a grid and printed to scale it creates an excellent floorplan for a town skirmish.
The map files themselves can be downloaded from Profantasy’s Map & Catalog library.
Recently we added some new entries to our Profantasy user library. Check out these beautiful new additions:
1. Richard Brunke’s Last Hold map created with the Jon Roberts Overland style from this year’s Annual.
