Alright, how can I torture my poor little Kaia this time around? Ah, yes I have it - a skeletal shark, and sunken city.

I created this over the last few days for a map contest on another site, but wanted to post it here as well.


Tower of Tears

When Kaia finds an ancient bracelet beneath the oldest part of the keep, she ends up summoning an old boat to the shore. Knowing that at thirteen she only has a few years left before her father will make her behave like the adopted princess she is suppose to be, she takes adventure wherever she can find it. She boards the boat, with rotting sides, and ragtag sails, becoming an unwilling rider on the deep seas to the sunken city of Tair, with a spectral girl as her only comrade in arms.

Legend has it that the Seakren, took the island of Tair, burning their docks, breaching their walls, and setting the city ablaze.

In desperation the Queen cast a spell, dropping all within the walls in a deep enchanted slumber to stop the invasion, and sink the city beneath the waves to extinguish the fires. There the city lays, preserved on the edge of death, until the fateful day that the one bearing the bracelet will return.

One step at a time, Kaia descends the Tower of Tears, and into the city below, as the water withdraws bringing her closer to fulfilling her Destiny.

But Destiny waits for no one

Below the surface slide the Guardians, the skeletal sharks, waiting to feed on the living, to restore the flesh and life to their bleached bones. And the halls are haunted by an ancient evil, which eluded the Queen’s enchantment, waiting for the bracelets return so it can finish the destruction it started centuries ago.

Cartographersguild , they tend to be more into the overland maps and such versus battlemaps.

Thanks guys.

I wish I could take credit completely for the water, Rotten, I grabbed it from Morguefile, although it took a ton of work to get it that size without too much of a repeating patter. Then I kept bleaching it out, ending up using 3 layers of the water all at varying opacity.
