Well, it’s spring and time for me to start up a Dungeons and Dragons campaign. So I thought I’d get in the mood and redraw an old map? The Land of Neldraad, in full technicolor, and the old version of Neldraad that I think I drew… 2 years ago?
I can’t wait to see the maps that I’ll be able to make 2 years from now! Hopefully Mapday will still be running, so I can keep sharing them with y’all!
For this map, I glued several pieces of paper together, ostensibly to make it harder and more map-like in person. What I actually did was write a riddle on the middle piece of paper, so that (once held up to the light) the riddle would shine through like magic.
It actually worked super well! I was quite pleased.
Takin’ a break from the megamap to chart up the newfound waters of the latest DND campaign I’m running, the Rise of the Sun King. Those long-standing followers of mapday might say, “hey, this is seems a little familiar!” If so, you’re quite right! Rise of the Sun King is set a couple thousand years before the second map up there, which was part of a campaign I ran two years ago and made a whole lot of maps for it.
The main party (incl. NPCs and PCs) of the DnD Campaign I’m currently running, “The Rise of the Sun King”.
