The Dirty South map outline

Post  Kingdom of Illatia on Sun Mar 06, 2011 6:14 pm

Hey guys, I'm putting together a regional map.
I saw where your posts were for information, so update that if you want.

We need a draft of the map, I drew up 2 images, will get a 3rd on soon (any recommendations, just message me)

(version 1)

(version 2)

(I had intended for this to be spun 90 degrees to the right

I did it on graph paper, so its easy to change, and I'll work on getting them on a computer later this week,
thanks.

I like the shape/dimensions of the first one so far. I have yet to see the 3rd image, so I'll post again on this.

are we going to have any islands? are all we all going to be on one big Pangeia?

I think we should have some islands, because i think some people like to think of their nations as an island nation, or what not...just a suggestion, the outlines are looking promising though.

I thought about islands, but wasn't sure how many people wanted them, I always thought everyone would want to be touching water, and not land-locked, so I'l get a 4th with islands and a 3rd on later (schedule is packed)

thanks for the input

No problem man, thank you for undertaking the task of outlining a map.

i think some people did say they wanted to be land locked...theRonald i believe...and i know for another one of my nation i saw it to be an island nation...not necessarily this one though.

As Serenel said, thanks for undertaking the task of making a regional map. In addition, take your time developing some ideas, I am sure it will take some time for people to have a look and decide their preference. I look forward to seeing the next 'rounds' of prospective maps.

Rgds.,

Here's that 3rd (I'd consider it Teir 1 maps)
I have to shade dark to make the lines show, and the 90 degree angles are there because its hard to darken curves and get it uploaded quickly.

I'll have a few more done and uploaded tomorrow.
Once I get 5-10 eveyrone likes I'll work on better graphics so it doesn't look like they've been drawn on graph paper with a pencil, and colored in in Ms paint...)
Again, I appreciate the input, thanks.

Changing tactics here.
Drawing a group of islands, add and subtract?
You guys should feel free to tell me to take out some or add others, change my shapes/size anything.
(base)

(numbered islands I# so if you let me know what you think should be changed can be found easily)
http://i66.servimg.com/u/f66/16/26/24/83/v10.jpg

(can tell where islands have been removed, personally I think a group of large islands looks stupid, but I'll go with the consensus)

well technically the world is a group of large islands... lol!

but i like the design, but seems a little too archapalego...to me personally.

also, i really dont know the deminsions of your graph, so that makes it slightly harder to understand as well.

however what i was thinking, again this is only one person talking, so dont put too much weight on it.

is having a map where there are maybe two large continental structores, with a chain of large islands in the NW region, and maybe like one or two smallerish islands in the south....

also alot depends on the plots of land we section off to the nations, and the like....just a few things to think about.

I'm trying to decide how big a TDS "mainland" would be
I'm making a TDS region, not a world map, this is US

also, i really dont know the deminsions of your graph, so that makes it slightly harder to understand as well.
I can make it whatever size we want, I've just been doing small scale drawings and making them fix a page, but I can make bigger ones.

is having a map where there are maybe two large continental structores, with a chain of large islands in the NW region, and maybe like one or two smallerish islands in the south....

guess thats where my next idea will go.
I know there will be mixed numbers of players who want their nations where, so once we agree on a general design, we can sort of set empire sizes/scales and maybe make some sort of "lottery" for islands and land plots.
Either first come first serve, or give everyone a spot and make them trade? (might be chaotic)

also alot depends on the plots of land we section off to the nations, and the like....just a few things to think about..

Well in a very real sense you are in fact making a world map.

I suppose in a way it does depend on how one precieves the game as a whole and Role Playing as a whole.

but i have never seen one region role play into another region...so in a way your map is our world...

I'm swamped with school stuff, but got a map like you thought drawn up

I understand what your saying, but the scale that I'm drawing is almost too small to consist of a world.

I thought I'd be drawing, for ex. the bottom tip of south america, mainland, and a few islands, the mainland continues north, but OUR region is just the tip and islands.

take your time man, no rush.

well...i understand what you are saying, but like you alluded to earlier, the scale can be whatever we want.

like your map in its physical form can be the same size, but we could call 1 inch on that map a mile, or 100 miles...ya know?

but do whatever works best for you in your own mind, i am sure whatever you come up with will be magnificant.
