Right, so it seems a little dead in here, time for some discussions about kings and unicorns :partyyy: .

So ive been messing around a little recently (hadn't opened photoshop in about 2 years) and created this fantasy world.

Basically, it **** to live in because its highly likely a Kraken eats you before you turn 35, or your head gets chopped off by some local mountain tribe.

All such common folk problems aside, it's probably much fun as a rich ruler trying to kill other rich rulers (I hope!).

The progress is below, Im just now thinking of the different empires/kings/tribes, and the scenarios, so feel free to chip in any suggestions :kg: !
I'm thinking of not making it too big province wise, so it will be most suitable for games with 4-10 players.

I don't see "fodder land". You need "fodder land" so you can have the town of fodderville. Where are all the citizens of "fodder land" live? :???:
I'm confused. :lol:

Also, I've resized the map and made it about 60% larger. Its not yet too blurry I think.

Do you guys have any suggestions on how to do the province borders? Shall I draw them in the map itself or just have them transparent in the gameplay?
I had the same thought about drawing roads... but I just dont want the map to become too messy and full..

PS: Fodder, go find the remains of House Fodder below.

You can draw the provinces/borders in the map editor than export a PNG image of just the borders!

You can use the exported PNG and overlay it (with some effects as desired) over you map image. I think I made a blog post, but then who's reading it anyway :kg:

Such is life... Kraken fodder :D

Yes, I see it. Just as I remember it. Scenic view overlooking the Kraken's lair.
Was I the only survivor?
Can I use the money from the Kraken Insurance to rebuild?
Or must I go deep in the forest or high into the mountain's around Kraken's Lair to become Hermit fodder? :)

I've always put the borders on the map image but I think it's better to do it NobleMaster's way. I'll have to give that a try the next time I attempt a map.

If you draw the borders in the map editor, you only need to draw them once! :roll:

:???: I don't understand that comment. :(
I only draw the borders on the map once. I seem to me that you would only do the borders as a layer once as well.
So I'm not understanding something... Can someone enlighten me?

the way i understood it is that rather than drawing the borders on the .png, u can just use the create border function in the editor to make the borders and then export the layer. after which u would add the layer to the original .png and re-upload it to the .map file :partyyy:
