Right.....explanation time....

Think...Pirates...Jungle....buried tresure...

The obelisk off-shore is ancient and acts as a beacon
luring mariners to the death on the reefs...the waters
are shark infested.

Behind this is a ruined stronghold...all that remains
is its great tower gates (one of which has toppled
over)....any buildings or structures have long since
been covered by the sands.....

The terrian is made in Bryce and saved as jpegs...opened
in DJ, where I palce all the objects down....the towers
and obelisk are created in Bryce and saved as pngs.

Postwork was done in Gimp....phew...that's about as much
software I can cope with for one map...

I wanted to make a playable map for this one....so I have
tried to cut down on clutter...and have some open areas
for encounters and exploration....

Hope you like it....the map is 80x20...pretty big

FANTASTIC MAP CISTI!!!!

What I like the most:
The moss/algae covered rocks & the transition from above water to underwater.
That combined with the amazing water covers makes it look like a real Caribbean reef.

Love it!

Why thank you guys.....

I forgot to say...that I named the map 'The Skeleton
Coast' after my all time favourite place....the fabled
coast of Namibia.....where the desert meets the sea
and the coastline is littered with the wrecks of
ships.....

I think I feel intimidated.
LOL That doesn't happen very often.
Kudos on one heck of a map!

The water is just so realistic and then the touches like the sharks....

I know this an older map of yours, but ... Damn

Great map. I love the water and the sense of height. The altitude really jumps out at me. So hard to get maps from feeling flat. So much depth. Well done.

Thank you Kier

I remember I enjoyed making this map & learning so much from doing it.
