I know I'm early, but I got so excited on Bogies contest idea. And, all puns intended

Westport

Welcome to Westport, a remote located port, once built by the Irondwarf colony in the ironmountains, up along the Keplian stream. The port was a dull place for many years, but the recent wars in the south have increased the demand for dwarven iron and metal goods in the southern countries. The main problem is that the Lake Falangor is a lady with many faces, and dense fog, stormy winds and ice make it impossible to travel most parts of the year.

The druid Bogienel, who guards the sacred oaks of oak island, live in his little cottage north of the Keplian stream, where he has his canoe with which he can travel Lake Falangor in any weather.

The dwarves have decided to build a new, larger warehouse, as a recent thunderstorm hit the old warehouse with several lightning bolts, destroying it and most of its content. A new road is also under construction, so heavy wagons should be able to travel to Westport without getting stuck in the muddy roads.

To most famous establishment in Westport, and the only establishment in Westport is the tavern named The Rusty Bucket. It is run by a jolly halfling named Grey Tale.

A few years ago, the lower mines in the iron mountain were overrun by a hoard or Orcs, riding large Dragonwolfs, called Aegeans. The dwarfs flooded the mines, and the Keplian stream was very poisonous for several months, causing trees and flowers to die all around the stream and lake Falangor. The druid Bogienel have been working hard to protect the sacred oaks.

For your info, all free items I've used for buidling this map, the water edge items, streams, some textures and items will be released as a free artpack for dundjinni in time. (Not to soon as I don't wanna give away all my hard work to the competition)


And I forgot, all maps are 100% assembled in Dundjinni, no post work done.

(Translated from Halfling)
I have heard tell of a mystical mapmaker that lives beyond the waters from here. Every morning and every evening the tiny Dun-djinni bird whispers his name and proclaims him fantastic. To all my friends here at the Rusty Bucket. Hear Hear!



Thanks for the mention amongst such great company Totte and topping it off with an excellent map!

::WOOT::

Awesome! This sets the standard - I'm also working on a map (well - started on some 3D models to produce a jetty)

Just love the stream portion - that's a mini battle map winner to start with.

And the tavern is excellent - minimalistic, less is more - I need to remember that!!

May post a WIP of items soon......

As a Druid, Bogienel must stay neutral, and cannot express either a positive or negative opinion on this,,,,
OH TO HECK WITH THAT!!! This Map is GREAT!!
I also really like the stream, but there are many many other good things here as well!!
There are some real nice new objects as well.

@SC. You ain't seen nothing yet ;-) This is only one third of the
mapset, next in line is Westport village, with Westport keep, governed
by Tzupeer, captain of westport.

The third part is still a secret. (I'm on my iPhone and can't type that
much, so merry xmas all!!!!)

Phenomenal!

The hi-res show up all sorts of extra detailling - the little ladder up the cliff, the wavy ripples! You manage a atmospheric variety of lighting types, from dark cellar through to the bright house. Short of oars? You just make your own! Indeed I recognise Totte bits and pieces all over it! What an eye catching building-under-construction too!

As for the river, even better in close - I was immediately trying to work out how to cut it out and use it but - lo and behold! - you've done a tutorial too. Talk about going that extra yard!!!

..."items will be released as a free artpack for dundjinni in time"...

Can't wait!!! Crave!!! Drool!!!

The Westport image (http://homepage.mac.com/Guru66/4EYes/Westport-grid.jpg) contains an error and cannot be displayed.

The ones that work are awesome!
Can't wait to see the rest of the maps!

I uploaded the grid version of Westport again, seems to work now.
They are too big to put on RPGmapshare without cutting or using destructive
compression..

Westport village

South of Westport, lies Westport village, ruled by Tzupeer, Captain of the guards. He will be ruling this village until the day that someone can figure out how the magic fountain created about hundred years ago by the wizard Escher. The golden dolphin remind the villages not to fish for fun, only for food, and that they should take care of the lake Falangor.

The keep it what will defend Westport village, if intruders break through the palisade or climb the vine engulfed wall that separates the village from the port area.

The village is a busy place, even as it is a small village. The merchant, the dragonborn Dragon Lady, does most of her business with sailors coming for provisions and tools, and the Iron dwarves, who often stops at the village for provisions. Tzupeer, Captain of the Keep and watcher of Westport village, have issued an edict, that the dwarves pays one silver per wagon of goods they drive through the village to the port, and that money is spent to keep the village watch armed and fed. The watchmen, 12 in total, live in the Keep in the two watchmen barrack rooms on the ground floor.

The fisherman, Blu, sell dried, salted and smoked fish, which is the base food in these parts of the land. The lake Falangor is rich as many different fishes pass the lake on their journeys to the small streams up north where they mate. Salmon, Bass and other more exotic fishes are caught in Mr Blus nets. The fish smoker and the fish dry racks are always busy, and the village has a peculiar scent of fish over it.

We have some farmer families living here too, to the south of the keep. The Cisti family, who also runs the little market just where the dwarven road gate is, and sells trinkets and vegetables to the passing travelers.

And, close to the beach, the Ono family lives, Prob Ono and his wife Yoki. Yoki has planted several different herbs and berry bushes, and Prob is the local healer, providing cures for both animals and men.

Tzupeer Captains Keep

Keep details with grid:





And what some of you really drool after, my DJ-Pack for all this:
Westport DJ Pack (almost 53 MB).

The grid version is still rendering, it takes about 4-5 hours to render the Westport village map on my 16 core Xeon 2.92GHz machine (albeit DJ only render single cored). I think I'm touching the limit on what DJ can bare making these maps.

I will post grid version as soon as it has been rendered and converted to JPEG.

Also, this was the second of the three maps I sketched out for the Westport region, the last one will only be a half size map, and it wont be ready just yet...
