6 sided campaign building rules! :D

What I’ve been thinking about recently is fantasy map-building in the same way that Traveller generates subsectors with each hex being an 8-mile area on the grid. Roll to see if there’s a settlement or feature. If it’s over a certain size it’s a village/town/city, if it’s got a trading post, etc......

Hmmm. I feel a blogpost coming on!

Hm, I faintly remember seeing something like that... A one-page sandbox campaign-maker for OD&D by Nicolas Dessaux aka. Snorri, via Sean Wills’ One-Page Sandbox Maker “one link, one line” blogpost.

Nice post. I love the look of your large(r) scale hex map.

How do you make your maps? I love the clean look to them, and the fact that they’re digital is a huge bonus (I have a wiki and we spend a fair amount of time scanning after every session.)
