No feedback needed, just sharing some partial maps I made over the holidays as prep for a campaign session





Spilled ink all over the top one and need to redo it (someday). The cubes in the bottom are just for perspective clues.

Nice! Worth a quick sepia filter! Maybe some light colour washes for the water/trees

I don't know who needs to see this, but it's a CAD version of a 6-mile hex with exact measurements (as a slight refinement to the ones given here).

For reference, Ireland is 32,595 sq. miles...or 1045 x 6-mile hexes. That might sound like a lot, but if you take the square-root of 1045, that's only 32-33 hexes across the top and side of a page.

Curious as to why you didn't apply a hex grid to that map to illustrate your point?

But yeah, this is what I've been saying about people producing adventures with million mile long treks. It's a very North American perspective on wilderness. Traveling short distances on foot is arduous and a ridiculous amount of features can be found in 6, 3, and even 1 mile areas. Hexcrawls do not have to be massive undertakings.

A preliminary (pencil) version of a map I've started. It's the prelude route for the party getting to the output/ranch and Lost World Crater (both shown above).

I got obsessive laying down a true perspective grid (6 mi x 6 mi, hand-drawn) I hope to use to adjust some errors before inking.
