Hex Map?

Postby MarkyMarcus » Tue Jan 19, 2016 10:16 pm

Has anyone out there either built a Gorean World hex map (like would be used in a hex game) or has one, or know someone who has one or know someone who has built one?

I'm fooling around with a Gorean grand strategy game, like to maybe get my hands on something before I go out and buy Campaign Cartographer and try at that.

What is a hex map?

Haven't seen a hex map, but if you need it, this is one of the better maps of Gor (not sure how 'book accurate' it is or if it's got JN's stamp of approval, but it's fairly comprehensive and easy to read, at least.)

I've actually started working on one, using the Hexographer program: http://www.hexographer.com/

I'm using a composite of a few maps out there to build mine. I think the one I've used the most is Marcus of Ar's unofficial map of Gor:

http://www.goreanlibrary.com/gorean-lib ... -by-marcus

The map at this point will be quite large, 70 x 75 hexes so 5,250 total hexes, though I might remove some along the edges, in the mountains which for the purposes of the game type I'm working on will probably not be accessible. I've imagined a smaller scale proof of concept game and map I've tentatively named Cos: Civil War. Maybe a 20 x 25 map of just Cos and the surrounding sea.

I don't have any licensing rights and don't plan on pursuing them, so this is a strictly non-commercial pet project.

I'm most interested in developing and playing it in SL, with some level of scripting, at least for movement of pieces and for dice rolls. As one who knows practically no LSL, I'm interested in any help or feedback anyone can offer. IM me in SL at Marcus Coffeius (MarkyMarcus)

I'll post my map and a legend when I've completed it.
