Ok a month is long enough for this thread to sit idle after Big C's housekeeping Wink
In case anyone hasn't noticed Anna has posted a high resolution version of the entire map for review here.
Here or Her Site
Here
*Edit* Forgot to forwarn all that this file is HUGE (1.47G) so it takes awhile. On her site there is also a condensed version as well.

And everyone should remember that it is not the final version. Be sure to look for things that might be missing, and let Anna know about them if you find any.

First, thank you so much Cebrion for holding my back and defending me Wink

So there are a ton of things to report Smile

First I have a finished map, that I have had some great help of no other than Darlene herself!



This is a 576 CY version 34x45 inches in size, and you canread all about it here: http://ghmaps.net/?p=1078

If you want to download high quality versions of my maps you can read about how here: http://ghmaps.net/?p=1091

The Big map is getting close to being finished, what is hopefully the last preview is being uploaded now. You can download a compressed PDF version 168MB here: http://ghmaps.net/special/FlanaessFullmap131212small.pdf

The online map will (if everything works out) be up again tomorrow. It can be found here: http://ghmaps.net/onlinemap/onlinemap.html

Again thank you all for your help over the years making this project possible! Smile

With this monumental project done, I am wondering, what is up next for Anna? Other than a bit of rest that is. Happy

Someone smart with years of experience of the RPG industry said that, "the reward for work well done, is more work" Smile

I have a couple of map commissions that I'm working on right now. Compared to the Flaness map they are small, and I'm glad that I don't have to research them!

My next big project is something that will eventually become bigger, much bigger in fact than the Flaness map. I'm working on a system of map tiles for dungeon, wilderness and town maps. It is a commercial project for both digital and print use, and I will present it in detail later this year.

Here is a promotional image I made to show off my skills:



A high resolution version can be found here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/296601/Promo1_1.jpg

Then there is the Atlas version of the Flanaess, and how about hexes? Smile I'm working on that too on the side.

The next project……
Another reason for me not posting as many updates as usual is that I’m also working hard on my next project. It is a commercial project so it will all be public, but it is still to early for me to show anything. But it will be a complete shift in perspective, from the big picture to a close in view….
I hope you will find it as useful as my Flanaess maps, and my next project is also generic fantasy compatible with any game system using 5ft squares. An it is in a way even bigger and more grand in scope……..

Thank you again for all your help and support, much appreciated!


One can only wonder at the talent

Hex layers are always good, and I am glad to hear that you have other projects. You could always do battle mats, floor plans for town buildings, dungeons, ships, etc. There are a few decent ones out there, but it is not like one can have too many of them. Happy

On the question of what constitutes "canon" for the map, and on the principal that Anna's maps are a never-ending work in progress...



Always in search of new Flaneass canon, I took a look at this:

http://www.greyhawkonline.com/grodog/gh_dungeon_adventures.html

...and bought Dungeon #89. As grodog suggests, "Wedding Bells" is a Greyhawk adventure in all but name. The geography is a dead ringer for the meeting of the Jewel and Handmaiden Rivers. It's set on the east side of the rivers, in an area described as a buffer zone for an Elven land [obviously Celene], and the wedding is supposed to take place on Freeday, 7th of Goodmonth [Wink]. My only reservation is that the area is shown as being more populated than I allowed for, but YMMV.

FWIW, I'm going to integrate the information into my campaign. IMC, that area is currently at Readyreat, 578. This will give me time to have all these hamlets and thorps get settled! Since there is no mention of a recent attack, and no sign of one, I assume that the adventure occurs in Goodmonth, 583, before the Pomarj invasion. Of course, its possible that Turrosh Mak's guys didn't make it to that area, although I always assumed that they at least tried. Again, I might simply have to modify "the future." Laughing

So, I'd argue that this may be canon, but not for a 576 map.

-Will there ever really be a "final" version? It's an eternal "work in progress." Sort of like GH itself.

I just thought I'd post this here, in order to avoid making a new and likely unnecessary thread. Has anyone done much work on the populations of Greyhawk's countries. I've figured out the square area of various countries, then used the Doomsday Book to get population figures and such. Boy does it NOT come out anywhere near the same!

I figured a thread was already here, for something as obvious as this, but for the life of me I couldn't find one. Any help would be appreciated. :)

This thread is only for discussion of Anna's Atlas of Greyhawk and other projects. If you want to discuss populations in general, find an existing thread or create a new one. Unfortunately, the Search the Forums function will not be of much use regarding such a commonly used word as "population".

Looking at Anna Meyer's map (http://ghmaps.net/onlinemap/onlinemap.html) where the Yeomanry, Hool Marshes and Keoland meet, there are a couple of places where I couldn't find any information about them: Parlfray's Keep and Sirister's Tower.

Any ideas where they come from?

Good question carlanco!

Parlfray's keep is from "Night Below". The Yeomanry League placed it on their LG campaign map.

Serister's Keep has its origin from LG adventures as well. The Lamia "Kjali the Cunning" was once enslaved by a local pyromancer, named Serister, and was held in stasis for some three hundred years after he was killed by Keoish forces. I liked the story and decided to give the Pyromancer a tower. So the tower and its placement is of my origin, but he name is from the LG campaign.
