    Yeah, I hand drew it, scanned it 11 times (6 scans of A4 plus 5 for overlapping), then put it all together in photoshop. The background was made by hand too (tea-staining).


    very nice. i figured something like tea-staining would be used. it's much more fun/easier to use inks and paints etc then scan the image into photoshop than having to find ways to achieve the same effect in the program. plus it makes me feel closer to my work.

    if you really want to go over the top, you could burn the edges a little bit or use dye/coloring for fake blood stains. ahh reminds me of a history project i made once...

    Yeah, the edges are kind of lacking in the image. I might fix them on the next edition of the map when I update some of the information that Solomir will give me. Except, I don't think I'll burn the edges. I dunno, burning has never really worked out for me. I might, however, sandpaper the edges to really roughen them up. But fake blood stains are a great idea. Or at least some sort of stains, whether it be drops of tea, ink or blood.

    Wow, I just started reading the books (archive) and usually there is a map at the beginning to show where everything is, but there isn't. So I went online to look for a map better than the one on the DIII website. I couldn't find one so I came here and I was about to ask for one, when I saw this.

    I am very impressed, not only is it gorgeous, but it is very detailed. Well done.

    I applaud you. great work needless to say no? ;)
    detailed, and got the classic diablo touch. I'm not knowledged with the lore that much, planning on reading the books, but is it possible that Sanctuary will expand world-wise due to the third installment of diablo, or will we "only" be able to play areas we heard of but never seen? Are the world of sanctuary definite yet?



    also, what is the name of the sorcerers homeland?

    This seems to be the entire world; however that never stopped Blizzard. Kalimdor just "magically" appeared in WC3, and so did places like Northrend, the Maelstrom, some troll islands etc. it might expand for all we know.

    But I think this is the definitive map of D3

    They don't have a homeland, they're more of a clan/group and not a people, just like the assassins and necromancers

    Kuras is located on the eastern continent right across the sea from Lut Gholein, west of the big-ass mountain in the delta of the river flwoing into the Twin Seas.

    This ma is a DII map and not very valuble as the DI or DIII are as they change it every game not a lot of drastic changes but, it changes.

    No, its not a DII map, as it does actually include the Dreadlands, Xiansai, the extra Amazon island and all the details given in the new DIII map. The shape is based off the DII map yes, but it was adapted fully to include everything given in the DIII map. The only difference is that it's shaped slightly different and the rivers are in slightly different places. But how does a slight shape difference impact its value? It's not like you're going to be using it to go hiking or anything.

    I know. Another "Thank you" post. But hey, I don't do this all the time! And Atru's effort is well worth it!

    Okay. The Sin War Trilogy is canon. So just a moment while I check against the map, LOL.
    So we've got over the problem of colour in D3. Great. Now let's argue about everything else not yet set in stone and help make this game simply great! Game on.
