    Hi Guys

    Here's my first version of the Galahais regional map.

    I used the 13th Age Style because I think this style works quite well at this scale.
    I hope you like it.

    I do like it, and envy how you do those mountains - i can never get the same appearance.

    Not having the annuals I am constantly surprised by the beauty of a new-to-me style, and you are really doing this one justice, Hadrian :)

    Looking forward to seeing it develop :D

    Hadrian's mountains are just fabulous. I have tried to imitate him, but alas, I am not a success

    Lighted bevel has a tendency to be a bit fickle when used in combination with an Edge Fade Inner, but you have it off to a T in this map, Hadrian.

    Beautiful! :D

    Thank you:)

    Since I was asked a few times on how I make these mountains, I thought I may do a tutorial.
    Would you guys like that?

    Okay, then.

    I've got the first 5 pages written, but I won't be able to finish it tonight, because I go on a two day hiking trip tomorrow and I still need to pack and get some sleep.

    Hi guys

    As promised here's the tutorial.
    I'll post it together with the fcw file of the tutorial map in a separate thread but I'd like to give you the opportunity to review it and make comments, if something is not clear or needs further explanation.

    Brilliant tutorial, thanks so much Hadrian. I will use this for my world of Myirandios.
    Just a few suggestions:
    1. Give a zoomed up picture of the areas where you have the red circles - for my tired old eyes.
    2. Give a screenshot of the final Sheets orders - I always find the use of terms like ' move sheet up' and 'under the previous sheet' a little confusing, though I do eventually work it out.
    3. Give examples of the fills for the foothills you use to create your foothills drawing tool.
    4. What do you do with the background on LAND FEATURES Sheet?
    This method is just so much what i want for the regional maps of Myirandios. It is just SO cool. I have contours showing in Myirandios, so will do it for them. See my contour map of the continent of Ostralura below
