Eriador Player Hex Map

Sun 27 Feb 2022, 06:18

I have created a hex map of Eriador for players that hides the Loremaster information. I am pretty sure the hex grid scale and alignment is very close to that of the Loremaster's map.

Just a word about how this was implemented...

1) I copied the PDF image of the Players map into paint.net.
2) I created a new, semi-transparent layer and copied into that the PDF image of the Loremasters map, and lined it up with the lower layer.
3) I created a third, semi-transparent layer, and used a dll plugin for paint.net that allows you to render a hex grid. I scaled this as much as possible to the same size of hex as in layer 2.
4) By trial and error I stretched the uppermost hex grid layer until the hex grid was overlayed over the hex grid of the Loremasters map in layer 2.
5) I deleted the Loremasters map layer and merged the remaining layers together, after some manipulation of the colour and brightness of the rendered hex grid.

From the way I did it, you can see that the hex layer should match the one on the Loremasters map pretty much exactly.

Thank you! Being able to print this out for myself, and each of my players will help immensely while we discuss travel plans.

Really good work and incredibly useful. It should had be given with the game.

With luck it will become redundant when Free League realise it's needed and produce a professional one.
