Majhar Ruins by Neyjour Majhar Ruins by Neyjour

Majhar Ruins © Christina Roberts (Neyjour) 2012

I found a close-up/macro texture of water rivulets that had cut through sand, and wanted to see how well it might work for the base terrain of a map (mainly the elevation). It actually turned out a lot better than I was expecting, so I kept going and made it into a finished map!

If you'd like to play on this, the zip download contains the full-rez versions (3050x2050), with and without grid.
Grid squares = 100x100 pix

Update: 03/04/2013 - The zip file is now updated to include a gridless version.

I just ran across this map again and suddenly realized I recognized the name "Majhar".  ERB's at the Earth's core series is one of my favorites from a long time ago.

I've actually never read any of his books.  I've only seen movie/TV adaptations.  Majhar was a place (or character) in the series?  I did a Google search but couldn't find anything..

In the books they were a race of super intelligent Pterodactyl-like creatures.  However, in double checking this I discovered that they are called Mahars, not Majhar, so no relation.  As I said, it has been over 30 years since I read the books.  Still, a very nice map!

Thanks. :)

On the Wikipedia page it says the first book (not sure about the rest) is now in the public domain.  I think I'll go hunt it down and get a copy for my Nook.  :)
