Section D: Draw the Map of the Dungeon (Citadel of the Amazons)
License: The dungeon map is adapted from a map by Tim Hartin licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 2.5 Canada License. You can find the original map at Paratime Design Cartography (http://paratime.ca/cartography).
My map is also available HERE as a pdf. [NOTE: I took the map down now that the entire level is posted]
I redrew and made alterations by hand as I am nearly Amish when it comes to computers. As an investment banker I could make Excel and Powerpoint dance but with anything else I am hopeless. The original map from Paratime is Textured Dungeon Map 035. If I knew how to make the changes on the computer instead of by hand I would have...oh well. You get what you get. The other problem that has arisen from my 6-year old knowing as much about computers as I do is that the pdf on the orbitfiles website is 7.5 megs. If anyone knows how I can make the pdf smaller on my Macbook Pro, please let me know.
Next up: We'll start stocking this thing. As this progresses, if anyone has any suggestions or thoughts please feel free to comment.
