This month’s map is yet another view of the Havenscoast. You can find my previous maps of this area here (original handdrawn) here (hex map re-drawn in Campaign Cartographer), here (player ‘handout’ style map), and here (Jon Roberts overland style from the Cartographer’s Annual). As you can see, it’s one of my most mapped areas!
The style used in this effort is also from the Cartographer’s Annual: the December 2012 issue. It was designed by Pär Lindström, whose site I showcased in November’s Map of the Month column. I really like this style: the various bitmap fills blend in together so well, and the whole image has a hand-drawn and coloured look. It may well become my default style for Area Maps (see here for an explanation of my mapping organisation!). The only things I didn’t like about the style were: the farmland fill didn’t seem to quite work for me – a bit blocky, and there was no symbol for a (non-evil) castle or fortress. But they’re minor points; overall I am really pleased with this map (click image for larger view). Also, if you want to find out more about the region, have a look at this post.
