World of Highland player map

Jerry Stratton, February 28, 2006

Gini Walker, one of the players in our Gods & Monsters group created a stunning map of the part of Highland they’ve been adventuring in. It was so nice I had to share it here. It has been scanned at high resolution and is presented here as a 300 dpi, 8.5 by 11-inch version. Gini is also releasing it under the Gnu Free Documentation License, version 1.1 or 1.2.

Since it doesn’t make much sense to share a map of Highland without giving you any idea of what the world of Highland is like, I’m also linking to the current draft of Highland: The Great Gazetteer of the World, Known and Unknown. It is likely to change a lot before I release a more final version but it’s coming along quite nicely.

Along with this I’m also releasing the current version of my Highland Elvish font. It is very incomplete. While it has all of the characters it needs, it doesn’t yet automatically circle consecutive wol and mug variations of characters. To the extent that it can be copyrighted, this font is also released under the Gnu Free Documentation License, version 1.1 or 1.2. This font was created using the open source font editor pfaEdit, which is now FontForge. Hopefully I’ll have time to open it in FontForge one of these days and take another look at why I can’t get characters to react to previous characters.

The Highland book is probably not player safe, but you can easily create player-safe texts from it.
