Sorravas by Luned Sorravas by Luned
Content-related design/idea by ~Varion2 – artistic realization by me. Do not use without written permission!

Sorravas is the capital of Rawderian - created as the starting point and background for a RP-campaign.
Grown rich and arrogant by an endless stream of goods and tributes from the harbor and the great trade routes meeting in a village near the capitol, only the limited supply of water (provided by the city’s aqueduct) impaired the capitals ambitions to become the center of an entire world.
A city of tremendous political struggles between the imperial government, the state church, the merchant barons, the realms aristocracy and the legions of normal citizens (each well secured in their own city quarters), the city stands before the greatest challenges in its history.

I'm absolutely baffled by the artwork - really! I wish I was able to create such stunning cityscapes. I have one question though: Why would the city need an aqueduct, when the river that's feeding it is just a stone's throw away? Is there such a height difference? Seems to me both the river bank and the city are roughly at sea level, so a simple channel would have been sufficient, it seems! 

Still, I'd like to repeat my remark about the baffling beauty of this city map. This is of a rare beauty.

Thanks for the praise :)
The city was designed by the commissioner, but maybe the inhabitants are using the waterfall at the end of the aquaeduct for waterpower? Or maybe they built it just to show off ;) Really, I don't know.

Hammer! Wie lang hast du dafür gebraucht? Und hast du wirklich jeden Umriss der Gebäude selbst per Hand gemacht?

Danke :aww: Ich hab nicht mitgezählt, aber es werden so knapp 30 Stunden gewesen sein. Nein, ich habe die Gebäude natürlich nicht alle einzeln gezeichnet, da wär ich ja verrückt geworden :D

Wie immer toll! :aww:
Der Hafen ist ja sehr interessant aufgebaut, gefällt mir :D

(Ich finde, mit ein paar Namen (Stadt, Meer, ..) würde das ganze noch lebendiger aussehen, aber das soll ja bestimmt so sein :) )

Ja, Varion wollte keine Beschriftungen... so ist es natürlich für Außenstehende etwas schwer zu deuten, was das alles sein soll. Aber Hauptsache, seiner Rollenspiel-Gruppe gefällts :)

Ja wir wollten bewußt keine Straßennahmen und so in die Karte eingefügt haben, weil das mehr Spielraum für die Kampagnen- und Spielgestaltung läßt (selbstverständlich gibt es aber eine sehr viel genauere Beschreibung der Stadt, der wichtigsten Gebäude und der politischen Situation - die ich hier aber aus Geheimhaltungsgründen gegenüber der Gruppe nicht posten möchte)
