…..Friday’s “Mystery Meat”…..A map doodle…..

    ~ Attention. Here’s an update on tonight’s dinner. It was veal. I repeat, veal. The winner of tonight’s mystery meat contest is Jeffrey Corbin who guessed “some kind of beef.”~

     This week I was working on a surveilance system at one of our companies, while I was waiting for my helper to move from camera to camera, I doodled on my legal pad. I drew a side view map doodle, experimenting with the regular fill and a rock & dirt fill (Thanks Dyson…!!). It’s not much, but it is kind of interesting…and it was fun to do. I am such a dilligent, hard working employee…:) It is also a peak into another concept map I am working on….


Geomorph-41 (Set-7)

      This is the fifth geomorph in the village set, nothing too spectacular. A few homes and hovels, at the bottom is a house with a stone fence\pen, with a gate….whatever you need it to be. Enjoy!


Geomorph-40 (Set-7)

    Number 4 in the new set of village geomorphs. This one has a large tower, and a bunch of hovels, etc. Have fun.


Geomorph-39 (Set-7) Out of Scanner Hell

     Well, I got my scanner issues resolved, there is a reason you shouldn’t try to troubleshoot software\driver issues at 2am, you forget the basics and make “stupid” mistakes. Anyway, here is the next geomorph in the village set. The lower right corner has my version of a blacksmith, above that is a ruined building, and in the upper left corner a really, really, large well. I didn’t realize how big it was compared to the buildings, till just now. Opps….oh well.


My Scanner Driver\Software is all Jacked-Up!!

    I went to scan in some more of my new village geomorphs last night and ended up till 2:00 am trying to get my scanner software\drivers to cooperate to no avail. I’ll be working on that tonight when I get home from ye olde second job. If I can’t get it working again, I’m off to buy a new one. Just when I finally get back to posting on a more regular basis….scanner hell strikes. Life goes on….stay tuned.


Geomorph 38 (Set 7)

     Here’s the next geomorph in the “Village” set. This one has a small pond, and some pine trees (though I need to refine them next time) More of these on the way….enjoy!


New Geomorph “Village Set”

    Here’s the first new geomorph (in a very long time) for my newest village set, (Set-7). Friday’s “Mystery Meat” is postponed until tomorrow. Hope you like it.

About this blog

    This blog came into being after I discovered the OSR blog scene. I was inspired by Dyson Logos and his blog, specifically his geomorph project. Check out his awesome work: "Dyson's Dodecahedron" The style and the simple elegance of his 10 x 10 squares put me on a mapping roll. I have blatently (...and respectfully) emulated his style and now have pages upon pages of geomorphs. Along with more location specific maps in that same style.

   My intent for this blog is for it to be more than just maps and geomorphs. However, for now, I'm just enjoying this burst of creativity inspired by Dyson and the entire OSR community.
