Seat of an Empire

Mapping a fantasy city

Every fantasy world needs a map for its heroic adventures, and the city of Thyrnau is no different. For a Dungeons and Dragons campaign I designed a set of maps, one for the city where the adventure takes place, and one for the larger empire. This way, all the characters, locations and factions had an actual place to reside within the make-believe space, which grounded the storytelling.
