PDF + Softcover, B&W Book

This is a beginners guide to fantasy map making. It is a workbook to practice cartography for games or books. It's about 25% instruction and ideas pages and 75% blank map templates.

The book starts with creating the world and regions, delves into creating cities and villages and finishes off with dungeons and other buildings.

It's a fun hobby that lets you zone out and just doodle. This book and a pencil and sharpener will be all you need to make beautiful and fun maps.

The example maps used in the book are in rough pencils, not masterpieces, and only using a pencil (with an eraser on the end ;) and a pencil sharpener. The idea behind this book is that making fantasy maps is an enjoyable hobby, like painting miniatures, or colouring. For a while you can slip into a fantasy world and enjoy creating ...

As a bonus there is a Prestige Class under the Open Gaming License at the end of the book for a member of The Society of the Stake & Cross. 

Members of the class will choose mapping specialties and gain useful bonuses to movement, stealth and searching.

As you level up you'll move faster and see things more clearly, until at the highest level you can even navigate planes where the terrain moves or the physical laws were created by a mad god.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
