Proof, Pudding, and Paying Homage


As I'm doing all this nonsense for a non-publication standard, I'm giving myself the whimsy of having my choice of artists - in this particular case, Bernie Wrightson. My cartography, as of now, is either my own or Greg Christopher's. I'm morphing Jack Shear's prose into something a bit more regressive than Ulverland, which I'm shortening to Ulvsland or Ulvslund. Here's the Chubby Funster Island Map with an added hex-grid, manipulated off of ACKS to work as an overlay... 


I need to narrow in, this is a 24 mile per small hex scale, so I'm working with this form from New Big Dragon with, again digital manipulation...


For Midenbrook, I'm adapting this particularly appropriate royalty free town... 


I've started to lightly revise Shear's prose in Ulverland 1666, rounding off some of the modern corners and warping etymological naming conventions. Not certain if any of this will stick, but here it is:



I also sketched a few half sheet graph paper maps and have been cherry picking tables and goodies from the whole "Tales of the Grotesque and Dungeonesque" pick-a-nic basket (extra points for reading that like Yogi).

More to come, ghoulies...
