Hilbo's Detailed Elvandar Map

Hello! This is a map of Elvandar for anyone getting lost in this wonderful city. It has all the important places marked and building interiors colored. I made it as logic as I could, hope it helps!

Very nice! I find this map to be very impressive. There's a few rooms and exits missed (I'll point out the ones I notice if you're interested), but generally it's very accurate. And pretty, too.

Very nice job!

Thank you for the comments!

Please do. Send me a pm about it. If by rooms you're referring to the locked houses, I don't know if I should include them. I believe it may confuse some new players.

Yeah, Elvandar looks big and pretty. Too bad some folks can't visit there :cry:

If you don't run away, I may show you a few rooms in Asador :twisted:
After that, you can make a detailed map of hell!

This is really good and actually very pleasing to look at, thanks! I'd love to see Arborea and the Dwarven Underground done as well, as they're the other two places that have maps available in game.

Lowering the learning curve for newbies is difficult but very important. This hopefully will help people new to Geas or to MUDs in general to get over initial frustration.

Guess the map could/should be adopted into the Geas web site? Not a bad idea IMHO.

Yeah, I was going to suggest adding that to the website as well.

When I first started playing GEAS I stopped frequently. GEAS is frustrating at first, or so I thought. Nice maps like Hilbos will surely help the people who get lost easily (ME)

Wow, that's a while back now.. nice map still, however I was wondering.. how did you make it? You didn't use some kind of program? Cause a program like that I would love to get my hands on :mrgreen:
