Grandma August Draft by Temphis Grandma August Draft by Temphis
Many of you have seen this one before, but it occurred to me this morning that I didn't have it on dA yet, so here we go.

This is one of two "long strip" maps prepared for the forthcoming 2nd Edition of Uresia: Grave of Heaven. The other one shows the rural "neighborhood" of the village of Rogan's Heath; this one shows the larger neighboring-duchies area around the city of Shadow River, extending diagonally across Temphis to Clawsport.

There's a lot of story behind this map, some of which may be inferred from examining it closely, some of which will be explained in the accompanying text, most of which (naturally) will never be told at all. But the short version is this: once there was a great adventuress who lived to a ripe old age, and didn't slow down until she finally stopped altogether. This map is more about her than it is about middle Temphis.

Medium is mostly digital: vectors + rasters + hand drawn elements doodled on graph paper, scanned in, and assembled. The fonts used are my very own Hultog, Hultog Italic, Hill Country, and Temphis Brick.

Yes indeed, for "Elegy in Ice," the very Yem-specific sourcebook that will, hopefully, one day see the grey and frosty light of day ...

If I do my job right, mine won't interfere with yours at all ... keeping it very intimate, focused on the Elegy and on the journey across Yem of the few people who were fortunate (or, in the end, unfortunate) enough to know about it.

Yours would be Cannon think I planned to have her Travel.

Probably need the link to your sites again I lost a bit in the last Window's Crash.

The only Uresia canon is as follows: there is no such thing as Uresia canon :)

Besides, your stuff is groovy and if I can I'll probably slip in a reference or two to show the love :)
