Mapping for Ashen Stars

Ashen Starts - The BleedAshen Stars is a wonderful space opera rpg by Pelgrane Press, based on the GUMSHOE system. I had the pleasure to create the game’s published setting map (a part of the Galaxy called “The Bleed”) based on a sketch by Robin D. Laws.

Lately I got to revisit the setting when, after play-testing the upcoming Terra Nova adventure, Simon asked me to create a simple black and white diagram of the adventure’s featured luxury liner. You can see the result below (the color background was added for web display). While the exact layout of the ship isn’t important for the story, the relative position of the important locations is, and the map shows those.

Map Commission – The World of Edyn

The World of EdynThis is a map I created for the upcoming novel “Mythborn: Fate of the Sovereign” (Book 1 of the Mythborn Saga) by Vijay Lakshman. The map uses the Fantasy Worlds style by Pär Lindström, published in the Cartographer’s Annual Vol 3 and is optimized for printing at a smaller size.

I had only a very rough draft of the continent, with a number of textual descriptions, and it was fun to create a pleasing map from that information.

Mythborn: Fate of the Sovereign, featuring this world map, will be launched shortly.
