Another Day Older and Deeper in Debt

So, as a birthday present to my readers (it's my b-day, but you get the present - see what a great guy I am?) here's the latest iteration of my Dark World map. This is a grayscale version, but I'm still toying with other possibilities (a funky color version, a la the Divine Right map, or a monotone version). The map still doesn't feel complete to me, so I'm reluctant to call this the "final" product. Let's just call it the "close-to-final" product.

Work in Progress: Dark World

Some time ago, I gave Rust Monster readers a character sheet for and a sneak peek at my "forthcoming" home-brew campaign setting: Dark World.

Well, I never promised it would be coming soon. /wink/ Although progress may be slow, the setting is progressing. Inspiration continues to filter through my over-worked brain, making its way arduously through the tangles of my fevered imagination toward a final product. What I have now looks little like what I had originally envisioned, being less inspired by Thundarr the Barbarian and more inspired by the likes of Lovecraft and C.A.S., by other games (see if you can guess which) and by my own weird sense of humor.

Here's another peek at the map of the still-forthcoming Dark World setting in all its (greatly revised) glory:
