Rake's Corner Map concept

Here's the starting point for the Rake's Corner Map. Each square = 2 inches. There's a canal (blue), and two types of roadways (gray): 3" alleys, and 4" streets with 1" sidewalks on either side (6" together).

Rake's Corner is something like the Five Points. The locals are vicious to each other, so you can just imagine how they treat strangers. The town watch is afraid to patrol there. The lawlessness breeds vice, graft and murder.

Anyhoo-- I'd like to add an open space somewhere, a market square. Where would you want to see it? Just tell me northwest, southeast, something like that. I'll figure out what you mean.

And should I dare to add some angled streets? How important is it that the textures conform to the 1" grid?

Cobblestone Streets Map coming soon

This is a 42" x 60" battle map with irregular streets, the perfect platform to set up a bustling town scene or ruined village. Did you know that I also offer paper models to put on top of this map? Yeah, I bet you did.

Here are some looks at the finished art:

The overall street plan follows this pattern:

Now it's time to start setting up the PDFs. With any luck, this set should be available in time for your weekend game!
