Forest Graveyard

The December issue of the Annual 2022 is now available for all subscribers. Seeing that we had so much wonderful new artwork by Sue Daniel this year, but which is stretched across multiple styles, we thought an issue on combining these into one map would be a good addition. In the process a huge battle map came to be, showing a crypt and graveyard being overtaken by an encroaching forest.

The Forest Graveyard Annual issue gives you a set of four A3 battle maps, which combine into one huge map of an old graveyard with a crypt and a ruined chapel on which the forest is encroaching. The accompanying 6-page mapping guide explains the process of combining the Forest Trail and Creepy Crypt styles into one map and template for future use.

The November issue of the Annual 2022 has been released. It adds another set of symbols and tools to Sue Daniel’s run of dungeon and floorplan symbol styles. This time you can venture out into the woods and forests and fight beneath the shade of trees.

The Forest Trail style gives you lots of new symbols and bitmap fills that work with the Dungeon Designer 3 and Creepy Crypts styles. Build encounter maps in the depths of the forest with easy options to switch between a view of the forest floor and the tree canopy.

Greymoor CemeteryThe August issue of the Cartographer’s Annual has just been released. Sue Daniel returns to her Creepy Crypts with new symbols for her beautiful dungeon floorplan style. They mesh seamlessly with the Dungeon Designer 3 style, so it can be used to extend our big dungeon add-on even further. If you don’t own DD3, you can still use the style fully, you might just notice a few missing bitmap fills if you are going through the fill styles of the templates.

As the name implies, the Creepy Crypts focuses on tombs, graves and burial sites, with the second part adding more symbols for containers, statuary, skeletons and lots of other material.

CA187 The Shining PearlsThe July issue of the Cartographer’s Annual is now available. Inspired by my recent trip to the Outer Hebrides it focuses on island chains and archipelagoes with their highly complex outlines, which can be difficult to reproduce.

It’s both a style pack with its Island Chains overland style and tool bundle, providing symbols and tools that make drawing the eponymous islands a breeze. The accompanying 6-page mapping guide takes you through creating a map in the new style as well as how to make the issue’s tools available in any other overland drawing style.

The Old BarrowThe June issue of the Cartographer’s Annual is now available.

It focuses on crypts, graves and their undead denizens, with lots of new bitmap textures and symbols in Sue’s signature quality.

While it is designed to match well with the style of Dungeon Designer 3, the Annual issue will also work on its own to give you all the tools and assets to design lots of “Creepy Crypts”. The accompanying 6 page mapping guide takes you through creating a crypt of your own, while also explaining how to use it with Dungeon Designer 3.

The Annual issue provides both a full template wizard to create these maps from scratch as well as a drawing part to import into any existing map as an overlay. The mapping guide takes you through the slightly more elaborate process of adding the overlay.
