Maps for the Six Cities of the Midlands 😀
Well despite my confidence that the Midlands PDF would be out in Oct, real life has kicked my schedule to the curb, and looks like it’s end of November instead. The contents, index, bookmarks, art and writing are all done however; I’m now just tidying up bits and pieces, and coming to grips with how to load it onto RPGNow, Lulu, etc.
In the meantime, here’s the six city maps for the region:
- Crow’s Keep, where the aging King Uldred holds court, fending off attacks from within as well as incursions from Melek,
- Northgate, on the cusp of rebellion, overseen by Nocratha the Stargazer and his Anointed Ones,
- Port Brax, ostensibly ruled by Highlord Ipsgrave on behalf of the Crown, but who in reality dances to the jig of the crime gangs,
- Northern Vorngard, frontier town of the Varnori, headed by life long raider Jarl Osgerd, the embodiment of “might makes right”,
- Southern Melek of the Empire of Nydissia, where Imperator Setirus gathers more legionnaires to his walls every year, his ambitions fixed northward, and
- Dol-Karok, mountain fortress of the albino Karoks, decadent slavers of the last remaining dwarves, and keepers of the Lost Roads.
The linked folder contains six labelled maps, as well as six unlabelled versions (for GMs who prefer to insert their own site locations/names). All of the maps are in high resolution and can be zoomed in for a closer view 😀
The maps were crafted by the highly talented Jose Calvo (aka Aoren). Jose’s website is currently under construction, but if you’d like to see more of his work, or inquire about commissions, contact Jose here: AorenX@gmail.com
The map border for the labelled cities is by ever excellent Daniel Comerci. Links to Daniel’s site are on the sidebar, be sure to check out his work if you havent already!
These maps appear in the Midlands book/PDF, but I thought I would include the files here for easy download for use as handouts or to modify via Paint, GIMP 2.8, etc.
I hope you find them useful.
