A few months ago I was asked to do a map of Dragon Pass to accompany the 13th Age in Glorantha Kickstarter. It was an honor and a pleasure to work with Jeff Richard and the rest of the team, and I’m super excited to see it printed and used in games across the world!

Digital sketch of the full map. The Argan Argar Atlas maps served as the main reference, alongside original maps by Greg Stafford and scanned maps from a number of previous modules. The style of the map was based directly on the beautiful maps by William Church, and many of the icons were based on those from the Dragon Pass board game.
I then turned the lines blue, scaled it to fit onto six standard letter pages, and printed the whole thing for inking. After that it was scanned in, reassembled, and cleaned up for color. Pattern details (like the marsh and the grass tufts) were inked and scanned in a separate layer, and the settlement icons were drawn in digitally.
