A complex story needs its places to be set. The first version of the map was hand-drawn and had been destroyed by an evil glass of water. The second version, made minimalistically in MS Paint here:
Pretty crude work isn't it. But this is the third, final version:
The most time-consuming part of redrawing was to place the small map's geography to the big scale one (1400x800). The western continent and the northern lands had been extended. Some tinkering with photoshop - adding textures, shading, then editing the captions in MSPaint and PS again, et voilá... Not a perfect one but it gives a feeling about the whole thing. Took about one and a half hours to make, the improvement, I think, is very visible.
Quest chains and parties can be made in this setting and played with my newest fantasy and campaign rules. I think I'll get some Caesar Fantasy figures soon (the only bad thing is that they are not really available around here nor on ebay and the shipping costs from the UK or the US are creations of the evil).
