Hexagonal Mapping Book

I was thinking about some of my early world building projects.  My second or third world I developed I called The World of Selenica.  It was for a D&D campaign that ended up running for 15 years beginning back in 1982. It developed out of the map of Karameikos in the Expert Rule book and expanded 5-fold. The world shape actually came from a science fantasy novel called “Guardian” which I might talk about in another post.

The only way to make good maps in the early 80’s for me was with the “Hexagonal Mapping Booklet” put out by TSR.  I ended up using up all of the pages in the booklet. Early maps were just ink on the hexes but later I used colour pencils to improve the look.

A few years ago I took the original maps and re-created them with Hexographer just for the fun of it.
