Shrine of the Harvest Goddess Map —

When the Shrine of the Harvest Goddess Two Sheet Location when up on DriveThruRPG it contained this map: The file is labeled as having a grid but if you’re not looking closely you’ll miss it as it is only in the structure on the left of the structure.  @AkieshaRoberts commented about it and I told [...]

A First Hatching Pattern for Dyson Style Maps —

They say that if you’re going to hire a programmer, you should hire a lazy one.  Because they will write programs and scripts to automate away all the redundant and repetitive tasks. It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Dyson Logos’ maps and his style of cartography.  I’ve been a regular reader of his [...]

Launching Two Sheet Locations —

Just a quick note this week to announce the launch of my line of Two Sheet Location products.  I mentioned last week that it was coming and now it is here. I’ve put the first one, Mr. M’s Equipment Emporium, up on DriveThruRPG as a “pay what you want product”.  This is the final formatted [...]

Mapping Port Loren —

It’s no secret that I’m big on Star Frontiers.  I’ve been playing it off and on since I was 12 years old.  So it should come as no surprise that I did another Star Frontiers thing.  This time I recreated the original Port Loren Map digitally. Now there are a few other fan created versions [...]

It’s been a while since I posted on this particular topic as I simply haven’t had a chance [...]

Frontier Explorer issue 13 Available —

By the time you’re reading this, I’m off camping in Yosemite National Park with my family.  (Edit: Actually, I’m back.  For some reason, I forgot to hit the publish button on the post after I scheduled it so it didn’t post on Tuesday.  Here it is now.)  The preparation for that, combined with the rest [...]

3D Modeling – Sathar Destroyer —

As I mentioned in the introduction to this series, the sathar destroyer was first model I created.  I had just finished working on the Sathar Destroyer Technical Manual and wanted a miniature of the ship.  As I have much more of an engineering/draftsman mindset and approach to things, I figured that turning the existing deck [...]
