Castle Crimson and Reveler's Way

Hi, everyone.

As part of my campaign in the works, I've made this city map, using the Cities of Schley add-on and a lot of Photoshop edition for the frame. The map shows the Ergothian village of Reveler's Way, in the Dragonlance D&D setting, with the majestic Crimson Castle at its heart. The map is built upon the original drawing of Castle Crimson, included in the Age of Mortals Dragonlance Setting Companion for D&D 3/3.5 edition, one of my favorites, and it is supposed to be the second of a series for my campaign, after that isometric dungeon I created a couple of months ago. Enjoy!

  • Nice work! I'm always impressed by the fancy map borders and legends some people create.

    Looking great. I really like how you've done the village layout.

    Lovely map :)

    You can see the details better here than on the FB page.

    The fields between H and D have no edge fade on them, but I think that actually enhances the map as a whole - a bit of contrast against all those around with faded edges. It must be one of those very immaculate farms!
  • What a lovely map! Really like the southern cliffs around the castle.
  • Just grand. Very inspiring Love the cliffs and the whole layout.

    Oh my!! Reveler's Way!! Dragonlance. One of my most favored fantasy settings. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job on this! Really well done. The cliffs really are fantastic.

    Speaking as a farmer and not a map-maker, those edge fades are darned difficult to pull off without taking the fence out with the rototiller.
  • Thanks for the good feedback. This is the first map I created using just the tools in CC3+/CD3+ (the frame was Photoshop, but the rest is CC3+), I dared myself to do it and explore the full capabilities of the "Layer" system and I'm quite happy with the result, particularly the cliffs (Texture Overblend was a great discovery!) and the fields, using the Terrain, Fields and Background layers to give the cultivated areas the diversity I'd like to see in maps.

    Okay, It's been a month in confinement and the bright side is that I have a lot of time to keep making the maps of this project. The next one, the first in a series of isometric buildings from the original map, is the red chapel. It's just short of 1 MB, but be wary if the size is too big for your connection.

    Okay, I'm very happy with how this one cleaned up. Following up with the city and the chapel, here comes the Black Tower at Castle Crimson, in the island of Northern Ergoth, part of the Dragonlance D&D setting. It's about 2 MB, so be data wise (a much larger 12 MB version of it is posted on the Facebook page and my DeviantArt page). Most of it is a mix of the gorgeous Isometric dungeons and Perspectives Herwin Wielink sets, with a touch of some tinkered CSUAC and Dundjinni symbols, a couple of Spectrum overland hills for the cliif and moat, and some Photoshop for textures and other final touches. Enjoy!
