Demera by Luned Demera by Luned
The capital of Kamîrush, an egypt-like country from Alvarania [link]

The city was built on a low hill near the river. Additionally a man-made wall behind the port protects the city from floods.
The inner ring contains the palace of the beloved Queen Dilshad and houses of the upper class. All temples are built in a way which makes them belong to the inner as well as to the outer circle. The free space to the south-east of the inner circle is a fairground, the western quarter of the town is where the dead are kept in houses like the ones of the living people.

Demeras economy depends on huge salt mines north of the town. Most of the buildings outside of the outer wall are homes of the mine workers.

I like your maps, trying painfully to do some up for a game I am running. Do you do commissions?

I have some programs like Campaign Cartographer but I am no cad person either.

Cool, working on a big pathfinder campaign I plan on running, doing a bunch of back story and the like right now.. and a really crude map.

I have Campaign Cartographer (program a lot of rpg guys use to make nice maps, but its CAD) not a good cad either.

So making good maps is hard for me.

When I get more into my write up I will drop you a line.

Its a DEEP underwater adventure, under some domes, and underground city of gnomes and halflings. Pathfinder is the core rules I am using.

Sorry life got busy and have had no time to progress in what I was doing.  But I will keep in touch when I can revisit it.

Thanks!

Ich finde die Karte (mal wieder) total gelungen! :pat:
Es gibt an jeder Seite des Bildes etwas zu entdecken und die Texturen lassen alles so lebendig wirken. Die Häuser finde ich jetzt auch viel spannender und die Kanäle realistischer. Interessanter und toller Stil :-)

Die Häuser waren davor echt doof, gut dass mir das gesagt wurde :) Man lernt eben immer dazu. Es gibt jetzt sogar, weil du das gesagt hast, einige zweistöckige Häuser im Südteil, aber ich glaub das sieht man nur wenn man ganz genau schaut ^^
Ich freu mich, dass sie dir (mal wieder :P ) gefällt!

Very beautiful. I think I'd like to make a city map one day, but I'm always afraid to start because I'm just not that patient. Great job!

There's no other way than to start ;) I'm not so patient, either, but once you have some experience it's not that much work (I do not place every house manually).

Wow, das ist echt der Hammer! Selbst wenn meine Städte und Dörfer bereits so detailliert ausgearbeitet wären, bekäme ich das nie so hin.

Hut ab!

Ach, so viel Ausarbeitung steckt da garnicht hinter, das meiste ist Zufall. Und Übung. Also los! :)

Nun, erst einmal sollte ich mehr Details wie die genauen Entfernungen wissen. Ist ja alles noch lange nicht komplett. Neue Städte und Dörfer entstehen, während mein Hauptcharakter durch die Gegend reist. Hätte keinen Zweck, jetzt schon eine Karte zu basteln, wenn dann nacher die Entfernung nicht stimmt.

Aber danke schön für die aufmunternden Worte. Eines schönen Tages in hoffentlich nicht allzu ferner Zukunft versuche ich mich dann definitiv an meiner eigenen Fantasy-Landkarte.

Ich geh da anders ran: erst die Karte, dann die Entfernungen :D Aber wenn es bei dir um einen Roman o.Ä. geht, ist das natürlich eine ganz andere Sache ;)

Mehr eine Rahmengeschichte, eventuell bastele ich später auch ein Rollenspiel-Modul mit den gleichen Figuren, ist aber im Prinzip ähnlich wie bei einem Roman: Teile der Welt sind noch im Aufbau und zwar so, wie ich es für die Stories brauche und es gleichzeitig halbwegs Sinn macht (was teilweise noch zu klären sein wird). Also erst einmal die Stories, dann eine Karte basteln und vervollständigen.

Bin immer wieder baff. Verfolge deine Kartengestaltung jetzt schon ein ganzes Weilchen und staune immer wieder darüber, wie gut durchdacht der Aufbau daher kommt und wie detailliert sich die Karten dem Betrachter präsentieren, ohne dabei völlig überladen zu wirken. Das gilt sowohl für die Land- wie auch die Stadtkarten. Gerade bei letzteren kommt sogar ein bisschen Satellitenbild-Feeling auf.^^
Daumen hoch!
