Getting back in the saddle...

So, I started digging back through my older posts hoping to get back into the swing of setting creation. Well, to be honest, I couldn't even get my foot in the stirrup, let alone back on the horse. I realize I have lost my forward movement, my momentum. I am not quite sure where I was headed or the exact computations that I was using and trying to validate...

With my desire to get back to Ukarea (TM), I started hitting some blogs for inspiration and returned to a commonly visited blog: Bat in the Attic. I have been visiting the blog for sometime, finding bits of golden goodness within, but it wasn't until just a few days ago that I found a link on the side pointing to an older post: Wilderlands Demographics.

This is perfect! Well, not perfect as Robert uses a different scale than I prefer for mapping, though I am considering the scale he uses as I read some of his older posts. Overall, it gives me direction / guidance that I had lost recently...

Perhaps I will even invest in his The Majestic Wilderlands setting... after all he has done the very thing I want to do; develop and publish an expansive fantasy setting. Well done Mr. Conley! I just wish I would have discovered your older posts sooner!



  1. Glad to be of service and wish good luck in getting your campaign up and running. Just remember that Rome wasn't built in a day.

  2. Thanks Rob! I am really looking forward to you continuing your mapping tutorial! I really like the style of the maps.

    Let's just hope I get Rome built before it collapses.
