Maps, Maps and More Greyhawk Maps

I'm behind on a few Greyhawkian bits of news and luckily for me they're all map related! First up is the next two installments of Braggi's epic Adventurer's Atlas of Greyhawk series. Part 3 The Northern Lands of the Central Lakes and Part 4 Furyondy, Veluna, Dyvers and the Domain of Greyhawk is ready to be downloaded for your perusal. You will not be disappointed.

Next, we check in on Anna Meyer's ongoing Atlas of the Flanaess project. She has recently finished with area 44, the southern Yatil Mountains region. You can download this region below:

Last but not least, have you read the twenty-third episode of our Castle Greyhawk graphic novel? Well this one includes the beginnings of a map to the Castle Greyhawk ruins (seen above). Follow the link to read the entire story from the beginning where you will find additional story  exposition by author Scott Casper. I can't believe how far we've come in this project. Alternatively you can also read the current page compliments of Maldin's Greyhawk.
Artist's Commentary: This page was fun to draw, it had some dynamic movement like Ehlissa throwing a torch or Yrag charging ahead, and there was some nice details such as Tenser daintily holding his hand-drawn map (do players still map for themselves anymore?) and the tattered curtain from whence the Trampier-esque kobolds are sure to lure the heroes into trouble. Kobolds, what could go wrong?

They do indeed!: this is my son Ethan's map of his explorations in my Castle Greyhawk: http://www.greyhawkonline.com/grodog/temp/the_game/ethan_map_level_1-2012-11-24-small.jpg :D

Very nice Grodog! You have taught him well from what I see. My next thought is, how did heroes of fantasy map so well w/o the aid of graph paper like we players are used to? ;P

Grodog, that is a great map your son drew! But, now you've metagamed for the comic heroes as I'm sure they read Mort's blog regularly. :P
