Re: my first edition AD&D site

I added a Northern Hemisphere, drawn using Fractal Terrain Pro. It is nice and small so it can easily be displayed on one page. No sideways scrolling needed.

Northern Hemisphere

I’ll add detailed maps as I have time.

Still not sure how to shrink the Southern Hemisphere of all those maps so it still displays well.

Re: my first edition AD&D site

Urf. The hemisphere sizes are way different.

I’ll have to add 63.3 columns to the Southern Hemisphere so they match in diameter. And the Northern is 12000 miles, while the Southern is less than 5000 miles from equater to south pole.

Getting the Southern Hemisphere to become a smaller scale map so it fits in the same size png as the Northern Hemisphere is goig to be probably beyond my skills for a long while.

Re: my first edition AD&D site

Currently working on adding in a Shaman tradeskill class I am calling Shogosh. It will be a combo of druid and illusionist.

Still deciding, off-line, how to handle skill ups in stone, glass, and pottery working.

I have a few pages of this work in progress on my site. Just look for the ‘Shogosh character class, in progress’ in the site navigation at the top of the page for the posts about this.

I guess you’ll have to comment here as I had a contact page, but I kept getting lots of spam.

Re: my first edition AD&D site

Instead of taking all those small maps and making one big map out of them, I decided to make a new southern hemisphere and redraw part/most of it.

preliminary Southern Hemisphere

The Great Open is a large plain. The drawing is 25000 by 12500 miles. About 1200×659 pixels.

Re: my first edition AD&D site

I decided to use Fractal Terrains from Profantasy for some ideas on hemipshere/worlds. After I did about 30 ocean/land combinations, I came up with an idea I liked. Saved it out as a Campaign Cartographer 3 map, and edited it.

this is the result

Instead of taking hundreds of 185×234 mile maps and adding them into a larger map, I decided to go this route.

In case anyone is wondering, the small maps are from my old 5mm hexagon hand drawn maps.

Re: my first edition AD&D site

a close up of the new Trillolara area along with a close up of the continent area near it. I’ve added a few Non-player characters from my old game to the site. I recently found a long list of them and will probably add them over the next few months. I’m working on several ideas for maps and characters that I’ll add as I have time. Might add more Legends and Lore of the game world as well.

Re: my first edition AD&D site

Due to various hiccups, mistyped urls in my site navigation, different map layout, etc. I am very slowly moving this site over to a new site: Crest of a Star

I’ll probably be done in 2015.
