Okay, Pallando gave me the info, so here's the version with the territories.

I've also extended the marshes, improved the text a little bit, and added the hills where (maps indicate) Thranduil's Halls are. Let me know if there's anything else I can add. :)

On behalf of Hazgarn, since their net's acting wonky, this is just a preview of something they're working on still:

One's the truth and one's a lie
Which one's which I cannot tell

Hah! Got the forum to load. All it took was crashing my computer!

*ahem*

But yeah. That's the in-progress map of the wider area, which I am totally still working on. Totally.

Okay. A little more work into this...

(The forum cuts it off to the right, so click to see the full size.)

I still need to path the text so it curves attractively around all the rivers and such. Mirkwood needs its dropshadow and I need to clean up the linework on the mountains and make the locations stand out more.

Is there anything that needs to be there that I'm missing?

Fantastic work :-)

Lo, the official game map!!

I may send you a set of files if you wanted to do a version for the very local game world :-)

This is amazing! Why have I not seen this before?! FYI - It's approximately 34 miles from the foothills of Vadok Mal to Utterby.

We need to hire this guy on as our official cartographer.

I could see what I can do. So far I've really just been making maps based off of other maps. :lol:

Here's the improved large-area map with the changes mentioned above. I also added a few locations I'd forgotten (like...I dunno, the Misty Mountains?) and added the marshlands.

(click for full span)

I might retool the smaller map at a later date to correct the distance between Vadok Mal and Utterby, but right now it's late and I've already stayed up longer than I should...

Two small suggestions:
1. In the version showing the orc territories, there is a scale, but please indicate the units (miles?) for the scale.
2. Similarly, please add a scale for the wider-area map.

Otherwise, what can I say but echo what so many have said already: the maps are looking excellent.

Alright. I'll put that on my list of tweaks. :)

I'm also thinking of placing a narrow strip of forest at the base of the Misty Mountains. Right now that area looks naked. Plus, we all know there are at least some fir trees in the area around Goblin-town...

Added a scale, added the forests near the Misty Mountains, tweaked Utterby's location to closer reflect Nimrod's distance of 34 miles, and made all of the mountains a little darker.

I'll be putting work into changes the smaller map a little later.

Photobucket is displaying it weird. Let's see if I can get it to show full size...

And the smaller map:

I made the same tweak with Utterby's location and the mountains, added the units to the scale, and made the settlement locations, territories and the Desolation both stand out a bit more. Tweaked the ground colors a bit.
