Personally, I love this idea for a masterwork.  I think it will require alot of work but as you say Smee it will be soooo useful.  You picked a great region too.

Wow, that's quite an endeavour, Smee! grin

Keep in mind that a Manthria supersized map is waaaay larger than the Scattersand Shoals, and I needed several months to get the Manthrian map done, but then again a lot of time was spent on actually drawing/re-adjusting certain mountains, finding ground textures, work on getting the right look for items like houses, trees, and so on... - I'm a bit wiser now, but it's still a challenge, even for me!

Nevertheless, seeing how you mastered the Scattersand Shoals map, I know you've got the hang of it and can definitely tackl another map project. There is a map Mina provided, though I'm not sure if it's detailed enough, but what's missing or needed to define in more detail will become apparent as you work your way through...

So yup, I'd say: Just give it a try and see how far we get! cool I can try contributing certain textures, items, mountain designs, fix things etc. where we need it and help to bring the effort along. With other words: Let's give it a try! thumbup

I think it's a wonderful idea, Smee, and if you pull it off, it would really be a major contribution to the dream that might inspire many further entries, stories, and roleplaying adventures.

The only disadvantage I see is that Altario will feel threatened, as he is currently the record holder for 'Longest Time Spent Composing a Masterwork'. But as Arti said: you can see how far you get, and if the map takes very long and you want to become a member quicker, you could still change your mind and write a more conventional masterwork entry, while keeping the map alive as a long-term project.

Anyway, you've got my enthusiastic approval!

The greatest danger in life is that you may take too many precautions.

Great idea Smee! :)

Approved, approved! I have a particular fascination with Xaramon (Ximax City, the Academy, an unfinished Arwoods entry somewhere...)

And, as coincidence would have it...I am planning a Xaramon-related entry now! An update on the Shivering Woods (but Ashfell Spire got my attention first...)

No, I would not want to live in a world without dragons, as I would not want to live in a world without magic, for that is a world without mystery, and that is a world without faith. And that, I fear, for any reasoning, conscious being, would be the cruelest trick of all.
