For anyone interested…

Map of Glissom and eastern Ereworn in the latter years of the 10th Century A.S. Drawn in the early 1990s, with details and colour added as the (then) campaign progressed.
(This is why some bits are in black and white, and others are in colour.)

The original, whole map was drawn on A3 paper and I don't have an A3 scanner... So you only get half the map (apologies).

The scale was on the other half of the map. For reference, this half the map almost covers a side of A4 paper and the scale was 1cm = 5 miles.

Hi Starkad, i love your map of Ereworn and Glissom! Any chance you could scan the other half too? I'm interested in how you placed other areas in Ereworn.

Hi Nick. Thanks for the kind words.

I look on my maps (drawn a long time ago) and realise they could do with being re-done.* Sadly, I probably won't have the time (or the motivation).
* For instance, I would probably add a ditch and rampart (probably a gate tower to the north) to defend the town of Glissom.

As you wish.

Please note that the other half of the map is fairly basic, as the PCs never went there. I had drawn the entirety of Ellesland (this is one of the two northernmost maps) and pinned the whole thing on the wall as a 'player map' - so the players could decide where to go and where to seek adventure.* As such, the inked map (black and white) has fairly little detail and I would add the extra detail as required. If you look at a real map, you'll see just how much can be crammed into a couple of miles; so you'd get the same thing here - a seemingly blank area could contain a dell, a wood, a marsh, a hidden settlement, a temple or chapel, ruins, &c., &c.
* It didn't work out quite that way, but that was the intention.

I tried to stick as much as possible to the map set out in DW Book 3, but added to it so that Ereworn became a more feasible country (rather than a country comprising of one castle, one forest and two villages). As such, you'll find Skull Island and Gullet Hollow on what is basically a bit of coastline...

Wow, awesome! I might just steal the whole thing in its entirety! :D

Thanks,
Nick
