RPG Setting

Do you remember back in November when I said I had an idea for an RPG?  I honestly didn’t forget about that idea.  I just didn’t work on it during November (or December or January).  But the idea hasn’t gone anywhere; it’s been percolating in my mind over the last few months until finally, about a week ago, I put pen to paper.  Here’s what I came up with:

Island Map

I’m sure this wasn’t exactly what you were expecting.  But yes, I doodled myself an island (or seven islands to be exact).  I was reading How to Write Science Fiction and Fantasy by Orson Scott Card; Card said he liked to draw maps.  I remember years ago that I liked to, too, so I grabbed an old notebook and started doodling while watching Grimm.  The first map I drew was a continent that sort of reminded me of Europe.  But on that map there was an island shaped vaguely like this one.  So I played around with that shape, ending up with this one, which I was pretty happy with.

This isn’t the final version of the land my RPG is going to take place on, but I believe it’s a great start.  I’ll share more updates as I continue to work on the game.

    I always start any Sci-Fi/Fantasy novel with a detailed map, and sometimes characters sketches, family trees and other things. I’m sure an RPG is no different. Great map, by the way.
