Nice place to visit - wouldn´t wanna live there

It really wasn´t planned but suddenly I found myself hunched over my wacom drawing a map for Outgard (or at least the northern part of it). Every fantasy world needs a map I guess - it´s almost like a law of nature.

Here you go. Clickable for a biggerized version for your convenience.



I´ve never really been that fond of drawing maps, not even during my days of roleplaying, but I got to admit I had a jolly good time creating this one.

  3. A fine looking map! Is the game going to take place in multiple locations on said map? Or is that still up for consideration?

    1. I think we´ll focus on a some travellers going to Holy Tounela with their dearly departed. That´s the only place you can bury people safely. The ground is so saturated with magick there´s a large risk grandpa comes back to eat your brains if you just stick him in the ground wherever.

  4. Wow, very cool. I like the names. Brueghel & Bosch must be really nice places.

  5. You've managed to make this map surprisingly interesting, I can't help but wonder about all the small details. What force formed the krater sea? What disaster struck Surma?
    A job very well done.

  6. Just stunning! I've made a map for a Mordheim campaign — checked it now and feel like an Ork 8l
    It is both very real and atmospheric at the same time. Eager to see the locations themselves!

      Me and Alexander are working on the terrain right now!

  8. Mervyn's Peake - brilliant. I always thought there was a bit of Gormenghast in 40k.

    1. I put that in for John B - Gormenghast is one of his favourite things...
