|East Coast Fantasy Map
Key - Scale 1 hex = ???. This project began at 5 miles to the hex,
but that varies some as the scale was mangled in places. For orientation,
consider North to be at the top of this map.
The U.S. East Coast from
Norfolk, Virginia, to New London, Connecticut.
This 17" x 22" full size map
was originally designed as one of my fantasy maps for sale. I had some
difficulty with it. Having done up the colors with the modern Pentel s360
pens, when I went to label the cities with the calligraphy ink pen, the
calligraphy ink bled over the pentel ink and all the labels were rendered
illegible. Next time, the calligraphy goes on the map first, then color!
Still, the map is good to use, and is especially designed for fantasy roleplaying.
This map can be a setting of the east coast in an apocalyptic far future,
or in the not too distant past. There are some slight variations, The sea
level is higher. (It was really 18 feet higher during the revolution ca.
1776, resulting in a significantly different coastline from what you know
now.) Chesapeake Bay is larger than the real Chesapeake, Washington D.C.
didn't exist until after the revolution and there is also a *new* Washington
D.C. on this map. The Norfolk peninsula is different, Long Island is different,
Virginia is where the map scale was mangled, and all the cities are much
smaller then the cities of today. Never let it be said, that a good adventure
map will be wasted though. I'm offering this up as a free download for
you, and the original map is still for sale, just not at a fixed price...
make me an offer...
