New (Old) Look for a Map, and a Change of Venue

This is my 99th post on the blog, which is something I find pretty awesome. I was hoping I’d stick to this thing when I started, and it’s actually worked out well. Originally I thought I’d try to write a … Continue reading

Saturday Morning Maps: Caves of Yth

I may be taking a respite from trying to post a map every week; I missed last week because I didn’t have time to get anything drawn and a break would give me some time to build up a reserve … Continue reading

Saturday Morning Maps: The Gate Seeker’s Cave

Stretching for nearly 1,000 miles between the salty marshes at its ends, the Atgur Brutal (“Killer/Death of Men”) stands as a natural barrier between the Atgur Reach and the rest of the northern continent. For centuries Arethi merchants toiled to … Continue reading

Saturday Morning Maps: Wheaton Map Edition

In the past week, I’ve seen great versions of this from Dyson and Gus L, and I’m sure a ton of other people have been interpreting it, too. Decided to throw my hat into the memetic ring as well with … Continue reading
