Magnitude is a good word.
The scale and depth of mystery for Australia at the time (1845) was considerable. This small map from the Royal Geographical Society looks at some of the languages of the first peoples, and includes an outline map of the Iberian peninsula for context... "given in the Equatorial distance to serve as a measure of magnitude."

Sitze im Garten und schaue auf die Kinder, die gerade Wasserspiele machen.

Zeichne die Kerker-Karte der Gewlbe unter dem Kloster des Blauen Sterns auf, die immer wieder in meinem Kopf aufflackert.

Dann werden auch wir - Karte und Zeichner - von kaltem Sprhregen aus dem Gartenschlauch getroffen!

Kleines Update vom Con-Banner fr meinen Artist-Stand. Noch ist offen, ob die Illustration sich berhaupt eignet. Wie auch immer, mir macht es viel Spa daran zu arbeiten. Und eine Verwendung werde ich sicherlich dafr finden.

Holy Amazing Mercatorballs! My wife just forwarded me this from twitter (which I have abandoned).

Can anyone confirm that this perversity is real, or is this some insane joke by Dr Field Does anyone know what the character of the debate was, and why the ICA was going for an "official" map projection in the first place

omg, too fun! if you dug a tunnel straight through the earth, where would you pop up now you can find out!

1st post on Mastadon!

A common objection to navigable rivers (one-tile wide rivers made up of coast tiles) as opposed to normal rivers is that the former does not provide fresh water. With the release of mapleleave's "Real Rivers for Random Maps", this is no longer the case! The video here showcases the fresh water navigable rivers implemented in my maps.

New project out today:

The light from the travels for years (and years) until it reaches your eyes. This of the night sky shows you for each star what happened on Earth when the light started traveling from the star to you. That way, any star has a story to tell you. You can zoom in, move around and hover all the stars to reveal the historical events they are connected to.

121 Bugbear Hideout

7 bugbears use this room as a base from which to patrol the goblinoid lair (areas 110-). Each operates alone. 1-4 bugbears occupy the room at any time. They dont mind the skulls and the ghost in the hall (120), sometimes kicking them into area 110 just to get a rise out of the hobgoblins.

We're extremely grateful for the support of #100 followers in Mastodom, so we've created this map to celebrate this milestone.

A significant update to an old favourite. The client has been using the map in family games over the last year and wanted to update a few details based on in game events, including a few more interesting cities in the south west, a town in the north west that had become haunted, the change in ownership of a tower and updates to the style of a few locations. This is super easy for me to do and gave me a chance to revisit the colour scheme and bring a more vibrant map.

Ma premire carte faite avec une tablette graphique (avant, j'y allais la souris...).

My first digital map done with a tablet & stylus.

Is there a way to import the into So far I haven't found an existing solution, so I tried to convert the data myself (in several steps, using ogr2ogr and gpsbabel). Not really usable so far, though. Ping me if you want to hack on this as well, or if you want to chat about possible solutions!

120 Hall of Skulls

Down the stairs from 119 to the main level, we come into a corridor, floor strewn with skulls of various sizes, all humanoid. I dont know how they got there.

Hardbys ghost (118 Secret Balcony) is crumpled on the floor beneath the middle balcony.

The hobgoblins, spooked by the skulls and the ghost, avoid passing through the corridor. If they must enter, make a morale check. Morale checks at -1 while in the corridor.

Heute Abend ab 19:30 Uhr werde ich live auf Twitch weiter an der RPG Karte einer Ruine weiterarbeiten. Es stehen als Nchstes die Outlines an. Der Lichttisch kommt also wieder zum Einsatz!
