i corrected some details (small town placement, added mileage, named some area), add some decorum and tweak some commercial ressources.
i still have to find a good typo for text.
Anyway, you can check it here :
Minroth / Darokin trade map
Feel free to comment

If you feel like making more maps keep 'em comming!
|#5zombiegleemaxMay 05, 2004 9:06:31||Fantastic job! It'll definitely get used.|
|#6arghisMay 05, 2004 11:21:20||@ stanles : how do you know my surname. it's not a secret, just you're the only one using it. would yo ube someone that i know irl |
i'm considering many many more maps.
This traders map was, at the beggining, a test. That's why it took me so long to finish it.
i'm planning doing others traders map because they can be of various utility; obviously for Darokin / Minroth players / DM, but also for having a sort of geo-political prop. Also, i have a good base for continuing.
i'm contemplating making a draconic territory map, for Glantri sorcerers (for instance), and to have a better idea of how Dragon see the know world. there is an interesting article in a Dragon Mag.
After that, i'm thinking that making a map showing various population settlement (and their number) could be really useful. i'm sure that many players / DM don't realize how vast is the world (mystara is our earth in fact) and how few inhabitants there is at this time. But this a big job, so don't expect this one early.
That said, all those map are (or will be) made with the perspective of being printed (by a printer enterprise). this is not in a commercial purpose (!), just either i print them at a good size, either i buy a video projector to see them on a wall but i can't stand looking at them on a computer monitor :-)
i have not the time (and the money) for this now, but i'll do it. anyway, before this, i still have to polish them, and test them.
i have also another project which i am working on since several month, but i don't want to talk about it now. you'll have to wait until this summer i think.
if someone ever need a special map, don't hesitate to ask, and i'll see if i can do something.
