Hi guys,
I'm never far away from AtS and actually never lose an opportunity to share material with you and that can be used in Midnight.
I put aside (just for a moment) the map of Eredane because of my inability to draw properly what I intended.
So, to help me understand what I did wrong, I decided to push myself on another project that will use a lot of digital new techniques.

This is going to be a port city. We'll see which one it can be, together.
I know (or knew) some of you who like the Pathfinder maps from R.Lazzeratti, and I hope they'll be glad to hear that I intend to match his style as much as possible.
This project is posted in several forums, in a goal of getting as many feedbacks as possible, so don't be surprised if you see these maps somewhere else Wink
At the end, only MN counts, but don't tell anyone Tongue

So let's start the job.
First Step: Sketching up the city

Cool stuff!

With the island temple, it looks to me like something that might be in Miransil territory.  I like the positioning of the lighthouses.  I can imagine an adventure leading to one of them to relight a flame for a transport that's inbound...

Thanks for your comments!
I was actually thinking about Sharuun. It is  a port, with dozen of stone quays and with about 80,000 souls living in there.
To be more relevant, the city has to flip horizontally though.
The temple in the middle could be an ancient sahi temple, now converted into a Shadow temple. I can easily picture a long procession of small boats bringing regularly victims for sacrifices, in the middle of the night, with torches making the scene unmistakable and unforgettable.

Step 2 is quite time consuming, as I draw every single house by hand ...
I'll post when done anyway.

Dain you have been doing some incredible work. I wish we could get Piazo to revive Midnight and have you do the artwork.

Sharuun was exactly what I thought of when I saw it. I love the temple on the water. Can't wait to see the finished version. Your work is always impressive.

Only just spotted this ... VERY nice!

(though my first thought when I saw the picture was Erenhead tbh - river down the middle, lighthouse)
