Random Map Monday 7
This week I've been working on another project. Yeah, I know. I'm a poster child for gamer ADHD. This is the Village of Offcombe. I stole the name from an episode of Robin of Sherwood - The Swords of Wayland. Although in the episode it's called Uffcombe, but I always heard it Offcom. I also stole the main guy who asks the Robin Hood crew to help his village, Gareth. I always liked the name. But in my version Gareth is the lord over the village that is being attacked by the Endless Enemy.
Sounds fancy eh?
Anyway, to the map. I changed out the Offcombe map a couple of times until I found one I liked. This one made more sense to me. The other maps had indefensible huts. Or kindling to most invaders. This one at least had a small keep nearby and made sense for Gareth, a fighting lord who has settled this land.
The entire adventure is done in the sepia coloring. It gives the look I want. Even the text is brownish in color to give it that aged feel. Plus I have cardstock that fits the theme. I'll scan in pictures of the working cover tonight or tomorrow.
Until next Monday, keep drawing maps!
