Along with the list of organisations that Whipstache provided us with yesterday, he’s also gone ahead and created a map for us, too. Here’s what he had to say about it:
I recently came across this twitter bot, metropologeny, that uses algorithms to generate city/town/hamlet maps. (It’s by the same guy that wrote this bot, Uncharted Atlas, that generates random fantasy world/region maps.
Anyway, it creates some really interesting layouts with excellent and inspiring use of negative space.
I decided to fill one in, so now you get to see it.
Thanks again to Whipstache for helping me out this week. I’ve really enjoyed seeing his stuff, and I hope you have as well. I really like this map, and I’m pretty sure that I’m going to do something similar for Monday’s map. I don’t often draw non-dungeon maps, so this will be a nice change of pace.
This coming Wednesday is the last Wednesday of the month – September has absolutely flown by, for me at least – and that means it’s Best of DMs Guild time again! I’m not going to be really tacky and include my own adventure in the roundup, so I thought I’d take this opportunity to remind you that Breaker of Chains is out now. Since I posted so much about the process of putting it together and releasing it, it only seems right to do a post-mortem of the release at some point too. I think I’ll give it another week or so until the adventure has been out for a full month, and then we can talk about what went well and what I think I’ll do differently next time.
Thanks for all your patience while I took a week off to focus on other stuff. It’s very much appreciated – and, of course, thanks to Whipstache for stepping up and providing us with some content. Don’t forget to check out his site and follow him on Twitter, where he’s running a giveaway through the 25th (and not the 24th, as I said in the last post).
See you tomorrow.
