Hand drawn style maps

Working on a new session/mini campaign for Hyperborea. I am creating a hand drawn style map for it. This cartographers guild post is a great help http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?t=10655. 

Here is the progress so far.

The Season of the Wolf.

The concept is to bring together a number of ideas that have been kicking around in my mind. I intend to create a point to point style map and have the world simulated to a limited degree. Normally in rpgs stuff happens when NPCs show up, otherwise it does not. I plan on putting a time track into the game and having the werewolfs that the players are hunting move around and do things through time. Depending on how much time the players loiter things might happen ahead of them.

A lot of the inspiration for this has come out of AFS magazine. http://hallsoftizunthane.blogspot.co.uk/

Issue 3 (i think) talks about using point to point maps over hexes, Issue 6 includes a new huntsman class and a great adventure by Joseph Salvador set around an icy Fjord.

The close to finished map;

There is still stuff that needs work. The celtic north arrow and swastika are sort of just stuck there and need reworking or removing. I also need to put in a neat border and a scale bar of some sort.
