GameJoy: Cats + Cartography – The Mintarn islands

Cats + Cartography is a series where I post a map I’ve made along with a picture of one of our cats.

One of my more recently completed campaigns was a 40+ session romp around the Sea of Swords in the Forgotten Realms. It started originally as a playtest for Peril of the Fat Prince, which continued on as a campaign so I could playtest sailing rules for Weird on the Waves using D&D 5e.

In doing so I got to explore an oft forgotten slice of the Faerûn, the pirate port of Mintarn and the surrounding islands. This was were the bulk of the campaign took place, and so I needed some custom maps:

I’m really happy with how these came out, and they worked a trick for the game. If I ever run Weird on the Waves using the Forgotten Realms as a setting again, I’d love to set the game here. It’s a fun part of that big ol’ fantasy world.

Please enjoy this very cute Matilda.
