October challenge: Bow of Promises (Street) WIP
Location 6 in Dunor City
Why did I choose location 6?
Back when the challenge started there where 20 locations where streets should be mapped. I wanted to map a location with a little more space around the houses and where my passion for wind and weather could come in.
Where do I find location 6 in Dunor?
Location 6 is situated in the western part of Dunor just at the foot of the castle hill. The next parallel street in the west leads up to Dunor Castle. To the south the street of location 6 leads to a marketplace that is connected to the harbour of Dunor where all the sailing and trading ships arrive and depart.
So at least when you arrive by ship - this street is one of the first you will pass on your way further in to town. The street is also one of the streets that you may pass on your way to the harbour - on your way to explore or travel around the world. Maybe you follow rumors that tell of immeasurable treasures or promises to start a new better life somewhere else.
And with this in mind and the aim to establish a connection to wind and weather the name for the street was chosen:
Bow of Promises Street
The picture above shows location 6 with its surrounding and the map below shows the houses that I will focus on: 14 buildings / houses along the street
What mapping style?
Mapping at this scale is somewhere in between cities an dungeons/floorplans. So I chose the Schley style that offers plenty of symbols at both scales.
And this is the actual state of the map:
What do you think? Any suggestions? By the way...this is my first fantasy city map...
