A is for Altar of Arlee




And it begins! My first map in the 2013 April A to Z Mapstravaganza is of an altar dedicated to a spirit of writing and literacy, Arlee! Special thank you to the April A to Z Founder, Arlee Bird! This altar can also serve as any sort of outdoor shrine you can imagine.

My theme for this month is Mapstravaganza! I will be hand-drawing maps for use in fantasy tabletop games and posting them here. Most will feature general locations that can be utilized in a broad array of settings and scenarios.

    1. Thanks Heather! Hopefully I can maintain a comparable level of detail throughout the month. These things tend to start with a bang but get strung out and slapdash as the authors do the same.

  14. I love your theme! I haven't played in years but D&D was a big part of my childhood. Shameless plug: I invite you to stop by my blog on P Day. I expect you'll approve.
