Minor quibble: The Village of Barovia is north of the River Ivlis, not south of it.

I'll check my maps and fix if needed. I've moved a few cities back to old locations.

I recently tweaked the downloadable ones, modt notably adding a drop shadow to the red-bordered map. Makes the borders pop a little more.


Here's the map of the Village from I6

I think if you just move the Village slightly to the left it will be fine. It should be closer to the Castle anyway. :)

There's a "the" in the 3e map, but I'll check Darklords later today. Or IoT.... I forget which.

Neither. Domains of Dread was the first source for it, I think.

Domains of Dread Has a "the" in Isle of the Ravens.

The map is kicking my ass today.
Starting moving Barovia, village of when I started wondering about the road: which side of the river. The map Bluebomber4evr posted suggested North as did a few of the older maps. I tend to default to the Black Box or the 3e maps.

Now, really looking at that area I start to wonder about Bergovista. Now, all the towns of Nova Vaasa really shifted after the Grand Conjunction, but in the 3e maps it seems to have greatly shifted south, by the Ivlis river and south of the Three Sisters lakes. But, pre-GC it was north. This gets muddied as the map from the Red Box and DoD also has it north of said lakes and the Volgis River.
So the city if likely well off where it should be. Grrr.

Meanwhile, I notice I totally misplaced Castle Faerhaaven. Oops.

Fraaaaack

Once you start peeling away at the mess that is Nova Vaasa it never ends.

Looking at Kantora now. Because of how the road connects it to Bergovista. Kantora was on the banks of the Brochava except in the revised 3e maps that places it on the South Dnar. Meanwhile, where the Brochava enters the South Dnarr keeps shifting, before the Dnar in Black Box and 3e but after in the Red Box.

That said, I'll be ignoring the post-GC change (seen in the Red Box and Domains of Dread) where the Saniset and Ivlis rivers merge by Arbora.

Can we have one without domain borders? ;)

If we give it/part of it to the players, they should not always know the exact limits, or that they entered a new domain.

Well, I've always assumed most of the borders were well known, dividing nations and such.
But that's a super simple request; both sets of borders are layers, and I can hide them and just save another copy.

I am wondering if someone could draw a map of sri raji, and the three cities that are within it for the upcoming sri raji gazetter?

Have you seen maps of the 17th? They're far less accurate. :) I.e. you can't actually consider that such an accurate map exists ICly.

Like this one? Its pretty simple, in fact just an exercise in making the black box map look a little more antiquey...

If you want the base .psd file for photoshop with all the layers etc so it can be manipulated and amended then ping me a message.

Cheers

Lostboy, where you found this awesome textures for grass and mountains? I've been looking for something as nice for my maps for ever.

And yes, it looks awesome.

I'm more curious about the parchment texture. That's very nice.
