[Map] Republic of Osriel, Topographic (Patreon)

Here's the latest map from my Calidar Patreon campaign:

I wrote an article on my main cartography web site, Perspective in Topographical Maps, presenting a variation of this map. It's a bit too small to make out much difference, but here it is:

You can get larger versions of both these maps at the link above.

The new variation uses a technique that includes a 3D model, allowing me to incorporate vertical exaggeration into the map.

I'll be revisiting Osriel at a later date when Bruce has the time to provide extra details for the map. (He's a bit busy right now with the new Kickstarter campaign, which just kicked off yesterday!) At that time, I'll also make hex maps for Osriel's provinces at 10 miles per hex.

Great work Thorf! :cool:

My only complaint here is that I have not a wall big enough to place all these beautiful maps when will be published!! :lol: :lol:

And there's a lot more coming! :D

I'm currently doing experiments with Kumoshima, with a view to getting started on developing Calidar's world map outside the Great Caldera. Kumoshima is an order of magnitude smaller, which is why I'm using it as a test bed.
