|#3b4realFeb 19, 2004 7:26:53||I printed that thing out and it looked horrible. We need a fold out. |
|#4gforce99Feb 19, 2004 8:09:14||Works for me. Thanks jonesy|

That would depend mostly on how and what you printed it on. I had it made into an actual poster.
We have been thinking about printing it on a sheet, laying the sheet on cork, and then using different colored pins as markers to play a post-WoS war.

Mind if I ask where you got that done, what you gave them, and how much it cost?

Could you ask your friend what it was he did and how much it would cost someone to get it done. Also, what file or files did he need from you to do this?
|#9jonesyFeb 20, 2004 17:00:43||All he needed from me was the url of the web enhancement. They have a digital printing press, I don't know how to explain it better. As for the cost, well that might be complicated. What kind of copyright issues would there be for pricing the map and would they even be allowed to charge for the work done? Also he did it to me as a favour, because they don't usually print posters with pictures they don't have the rights for.|

|#12talinthasFeb 23, 2004 12:19:58||yeah, i was kinda like, dude, this costs more than the whole freakin' DLCS...|
|#13gforce99Feb 23, 2004 12:20:59||Why is inaccurate? I thought it was the best post-WoS map out there?|
|#14brimstoneFeb 23, 2004 12:28:47||Because nothing is in the right place. Mountain ranges are missing, forests are missing...|
It's pretty, don't get me wrong...and it's got a lot of info on there. But things aren't exactly where they were on previous maps. But then again, I don't know that I've ever seen any two maps of Abanasinia look at all alike.
And yeah, Tal...no kidding. What kind of paper were you having them print that out on?
|#15talinthasFeb 23, 2004 12:30:25||by 'best', you mean 'only', right?|
brim, i asked for the cheapest stuff they had. think i'm gonna wait for the official one =(

|#17ferratusFeb 23, 2004 16:15:04||On the bright side, having the map on JPG format means I can alter it very easily, adding new towns and cities as I need them. |
First thing first, shrink the dragon overlord desolations to make room for entire nations.
Gellidus: Dominion of Daltigoth
Sable: Blodeheim and the plains barbarians of New Coast
Malystryx: Khotan - eastern half of the desolation
I've been thinking that the Desolation probably sticks around in a radius around Malys' lair. However, the volcanic lands and mountain ridges raised by Malystryx's magic would make for extremely rugged and impassible terrain. That means many scattered villages and cities built on the tops of mountains (with perhaps terraces for farming cut into them). Of course, I want to green up this part so that somebody can actually eat. Some grass, some trees, a few mountain springs bubbling to the surface...
The best part is, I don't even lose the desolations themselves. Shrentak and the drained bay beside it is still a swamp of horrors. Gellidus' ice still grips the Lastgaard mountains, and the fiery desolation is still an open wound on Chislev. So this means I get to keep all the villains, monsters, and settlements of those desolated regions, and yet have more besides.
|#18zombiegleemaxFeb 27, 2004 21:37:00||Hey, I have an aunt who works at a print shop, and she says that she would print it on a poster ofr me, but her workplace is very particular about copyright infringement and such. Is it oklay to have this done?|

Yes, it's one of the reasons WOTC put the poster images up on their site. Permission should be granted for personal use, as far as I can tell.
