Here’s the bigger work-in-progress Arcadia map.

Since we have a bunch of folks who like to mess about with maps in comments: here’s the bigger version (if you’d like to know more about Arcadia, sign up for my Patreon!).  It’s absolutely not done yet, so no worries about taking it apart.

And yes: that continent in the middle is absolutely going to get some monster storms (the sun rises in the west and sets in the east on this planet). That continent up top’s weather is also fairly rainy, albeit at a much less dramatic rate, but the colonists didn’t have many options.  Below is a very rough first draft; the ‘Steam Ocean’ in particular is remarkably full of underwater volcanoes.  The arctic region is noticeably warmer than the antarctic, in this world.

PS: I figure that if I get 80% of it right that’s good enough for a game.

Working on maps today!

For my Patreon RPG world Arcadia — you can see what I’ve done so far for only a buck a month! — and I pretty much spent the day fiddling with it to in order to learn the basics.  This is a small part of it so far; the quality is much better in the original, trust me.  I’m using Campaign Cartographer for this one, because they allow commercial use and buying it was tax deductible. I mean, people are paying me to do this stuff.  Map-making is a legitimate and recognized part of the roleplaying game supplement experience.

So, yeah, that was what I was doing today.  And it’s not as easy as you’d think.
