DA3 and 4 Combined map

Post by Dave L »

And finally ...

Here is my last map in the DA series.

As you might expect, the maps from DA1/DA4 did not EXACTLY match up with the DA3 map, but they were fairly close, in fact they were better than expected. I had to make some adjustments to make them match sensibly - link a couple of rivers up, extend the western Plains of Hak to the south, and slightly shrink the mountain range where Cloudtop is situated. That was probably the biggest change, actually. Apologies that the text in the DA3 part is slightly bigger than the rest - sorry, but I wasn't about to re-do every text label.

Anyway, as before, you can download the full-sized png here. Enjoy!

The ultimate in compliments! :)

I'm really pleased you all like it - although I have to say I'm working on a 5/6 mile per hex version (depending on whether you use 10 or 12 as standard for Blackmoor).

Hopefully it will be ready by Friday - it will look exactly the same, just be four times the size - and it will allow anyone who has the Judges Guild maps to finally connect them to Blackmoor.

Whilst entering the labels from this map onto my 5 mile per hex image, I noticed that when merging the DA3 and DA4 maps I actually lost 45 pixels from the left edge of DA3 - the town of Churmlish Penarth as well as a couple of text labels got truncated.

Many apologies for this - corrected files have been uploaded.

Something happened to the URL to the full-sized map. 4shared thinks it's invalid. :(
