Call for Cartography

In working on Weird Adventures, I’ve become aware that my mapmaking skills, while fine for my little gaming group, are not up to the standards I want for a commercially available product. With that in mind, I thought I’d summon the power of the web to help make up for that deficit.

I’m going to need at least two maps for the book. One of a sort of a standard “fantasy map” variety--a continental map. Another will be a little bit of a departure--a map of a “modern” urban center, of which this map of Gotham City would be a resemble example:

I’m willing to pay for said maps, of course, though obviously my budget isn’t extravagant.

So my question to the ether is: does anybody know where I can find a good rpg cartographer? Self-nominations are welcome, as are enquiries for more details. I can be reach at my blog email address: theinscrutabledr3[at]gmail[dot]com

Consider posting a link over at:

There are a lot of talented people over there who might just be able to help you out.

We're still mapping our own stuff or we'd volunteer in a heartbeat. Maybe we can help out on something smaller, later on.

Best of luck!

In addition to Netherwerks suggestion, I'd recommend Nick over at Carto Cacography - he already sells nice maps online through the Fantasy Cartographic:

If you ever need something underground / dungeony, drop me a line.

I can also do other styles, but have less practice.

Thanks for the links guys! You've been very helpful, and given me some options.

I'll pass along this information to Rob (Bat in the Attic) he's done maps for several companies.

I think I can second Scottsz's recommendation of Nick. I've been rummaging through his archives lately, and that man can map.

Btw, when can I place my order? ;)

Thanks! You guys have given me several great potential options.
