The Far Seeker

Nice deckplans for a small sloop (55' long not counting the bowsprit, 15' at widest). Due to the small size, there's not a lot of room here for complications but it could be useful during a boarding by or against the PCs. Crew quarters could maybe be laid out a bit more sensibly though (e.g. it would make sense if the outer rows of hammocks were right alongside the hull and not at odd angles).

Pridnor
by Björn A. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/25/2015 08:45:58

I'm a big sucker for maps, but unluckily I also suck big time at creating them by myself. Which made bying this map a no-brainer, especially at this low price. What you get is a full-color map for GMs and a greyscale map as a player handout. Both look great, though I personally prefer the full-color part.

In fact, this is kind of a two-in one map because it contains Pridnor and Darlath, both part of the mapper's world of Lerchanth, which I automatically got for free as part of the transaction. In the description, Pridnor is called a continent, which would make Darlath another one, so this card nearly suffices as its own campaign world. Luckily, there's no scale on the map, so you could easily insert it into your own world as a big isle complex (if there's no place for additional continents, that is).

There are some minor and one greater nitpick I have with this map as follows:

  1. If taken as a continent I wonder how many countries are located on Pridnor. There seem to be no capital(s) and as there are no boundaries either one could get the idea that Pridnor is one big united nation. Given the geography, this seems kind of unprobable.

  2. Maybe it's a matter of taste, but the desert regions' color is to red and don't fit into the overall style of the map. Nothing dramatic, but it's a tiny bit irritating for me.

  3. The greyscale version contains the same information as the GM color version. Clearly a matter of taste but I'd prefer less information so my players could explore the continent without knowing too much beforehand. Luckily, the free world map solves this problem for me.

  4. Minor typo (?): The Shreeking Forrest. I love the name, but as other forests come with one 'r' I guess here's one too much.

Which brings me to my greater nitpick:

looking at the world map of Lerchanth, the Shreeking Forrest region is covered by Ice as is the southern region of Halsorff. So looking at the Pridnor map, the question arises, where has all the Ice gone? I don't mind this inconsistency too much (personally I prefer the iceless version), but it makes it difficult to use both maps together.

This all said, I do love the map(s) and will probably find use for them in future campaigns.

4/5 stars from me.

Thanks for the review... I will correct the spelling typo for \"Forrest\". As for the Ice covered portion... that was a HUGE mistake on my part. It has since been corrected. It should be ice. I will upload the corrected version. All you need do is re-download the map to get the corrected version. MadCartographer
1 Correction to the map... Forrest on the bottom was removed.
