Our top priority should be to come up with a map of the current Nybelmar realms – as this is essential for both region overviews and trade related entries. So we need to synthesise the map Eleyr was working on with my Gondolwain maps and weave in the most recent changes since Eleyr drew the map:

- Add Gondolwain
- Add Meelaimad
- Add Trumarim dwarves
- Add Darkling Brownies
- Change “Lillivear descendents” to “the Amorai”; “Far-Eastern” to Sceptres of Tarshiin; “Mushroom people” to “Kazai Morchin-i” etc
- Make Loreney smaller
- Remove the arrows, question marks & make the colouring and the font more professional looking

I don’t have the necessary map making skills so help in this regard would be vital – not to mention greatly appreciated!  Big Grin

More maps here:

(Place-holder for now. I'll update this post should there be more maps we need to take into account in redrawing the "master map")

Coren, if nobody else has helped you with this in.... weeks, I'll try my hand at it. But first I'm busy with something else which captures me right now quite a bit and then there are those for Altario I have to do first. (*Sets iCal to remember her to do them!*)

For anyone interested in developing map skills in order to help out Coren, I would like to point out that there are some very nice tutorials right here on this site.  They are in the workshop section.

I myself have never done maps, and am also currently busy-- travelling through Nybelmar (so not available to help here) .  Come to think of it the maps better be accurate or I could get lost.  shocked

Oh, we don't need to make new maps! Just someone with photohop needs to draw in and colour the new territories on Koldar's map!

I am assuming they would need to use the flat jpeg version you posted here.  (versus a layered version)  That would make things slightly more difficult but not impossible.

If i had a photoshop or similar program, i am pretty confident i could learn to make maps in relatively short time. I've been trying to get someone to give me an erh.. less-than-uitterly-legal copy, but no luck so far.

Of course, i would only try such a thing to turn them in for software piracy afterwards! (Somehow, this has not been making me many friends ;))

Mira, look at my sig, you can try out this software, similar to photoshop,  for 30 days for free, and then 60€ is not too much if you really use it. And what about GIMP?

See? Problem solved. Possibly, anyway.

I'm going to have a look at those tomorrow Talia, i'm almost off for a night of Arkham Horror. :)

Edit-> Yes, i'm that kind of geek. I'm a writer for a full-fantasy encyclopedia, what did you expect?

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.
09 May 2017, 14:17:18
Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
