I am always intrigued by real pen and ink (usually so I can steal ideas, ahem, I mean learn techniques...). Volumes 1 and 2 of Torn World's Hand-Drawn Cities are for the more discerning map appreciator. These two black and white products nestle amongst the other gorgeous colour maps and accessories provided by Torn World, but for me these are the bright treasures. Everywhere you look in these sprawling cities there are details, and yet they are plain enough to make those cities your own. As is the fashion these days, the PDF comes with graphics files (.png) which can be imported into other packages (perhaps you would like to give to different districts your own shades your reference?) All of Alyssa Faden's cities appear to have grown organically, developing in sections - the awkward geometries imply social history and civil expansion. Every block of buildings is depicted, so that the streets are very detailed. However, the details do create a flaw when using the graphics files... Basically, these maps will make you want to zoom right into street level, which results in mild blur and pixelation. Again, I have to stress that this is because the overhead detail is so amazing that you just have to see how far it goes! The good news is that all of the files in these packs are small enough in size to be usable in many applications and platforms without any sluggish scrolling. Bonus.

I always like having maps of cities that are generic so i can use them in my own game, even if I use a bought Campaign setting. Most cities are never mapped out by the publisher, of at least not when you need it. So having these help. Nice & simple so I can add my own details.

Ich war auf der Suche nach Stadtkarten und generell Karten für meine neue Malmsturm-Runde. Da Malmsturm an sich eine sehr freie und offene Welt ist, war es die hervorragende Möglichkeit, sich systemfreien Materials zu bedienen. Ich bin sehr angetan von der Qualität und dem Detailreichtum der Karten, man merkt wie viel Herzblut beim Zeichnen hineingeflossen ist. Im Paket sind 6 Stadtkarten, zum einen im pdf eingebettet, zum anderen als eigene png Datei zum besseren Ausdruck oder zur Einbettung in die eigene Website der Spielrunde.

Die Karten an sich haben keine Beschriftungen der Gebäude, nur in wenigen Ausnahmefällen, lassen sich also gut für allerlei Settings benutzen. Verbunden mit dem Preis kann ich nur eine Kaufempfehlung aussprechen!

I was looking for some maps and especially city maps for my new Malmsturm campaign. Malmsturm is a very open world with some background information, but not every corner of the world is defined, so a gamemaster can use lots of free material, it was a perfect chance to use some systemfree stuff. I'm very taken by the quality and the richness of detail of the city maps and one notices for sure, how much heartblood was put into the drawings.

There are 6 city maps in the download package, on the one hand included in the pdf, on the other hand given as png file, maybe to include the on the website of the game group.

The maps have only few letterings of the buildings, so they are of good use to a lot of settings. Accompanied by the low price I'm giving an absolute buy recommendation!
