Here is a small blank hexmap. Each person picks a tile, if it's blank, post terrain (describe whatever you like I'll try to find an appropriate tile), if not post a detail/flavor about the tile (e.g an encounter, a location, some lore or history, a monster that roams there, weather, etc.)I'll update the map as we go. To start, I've added an active volcano in the center.

Hey OP what do you wanna call this place?What's the fauna and flora like? Keep us updated man, I've really enjoyed this.
>>57741994No worries senpai. The list of details and features is coming (and getting updated with more stuff) as soon as the terrain is finished. Then we can start fleshing more stuff out.
A blessed river that secluded the 00.00 area from the lich place. The dead may not cross it.Yet.

>>57741910>>57742054>>57741920DONE! Terrain is complete!

>>57742951>>57742971>>57742985>>57743003This is a beautiful clusterfuck
This might be a fun pathfinder hexcrawl to spring on my group lol
This'll be my last post for tonight. If y'all post more stuff I'll add them to the list. I've consolidated some common themes which might be developed into factions, races, and lore:>Lich king to the northwest and his corrupting influence>Radioactive desert to the southwest amid ruins of a technologically advanced society which may have developed advanced robotics>Race of giant "gods" that lived in the enormous southern forests long ago>Spacetime-aberrations >Earth-flesh that constantly spreads>Volcanic activity and fire gods>People mentioned: Goblins, ogres, humans, druids, lich, ghosts, ghouls, robots, goatmen, >Settlements mentioned: Goblin camp, Lich spire, Labyrinth City, Undead Mine, Oasis City, Needles: Western Town, Medieval Town, Ogre Temple, Owlbear Hunting Club, Goatmen Monuments, Fishing Village, Puppet City, Cannibal Swamp, Shapeshifter Village
>>57743545>>Spacetime-aberrationsThe Time Stop Pyramid and the Chunk of Outer Space are likely connected in some way.This place/map needs a suitable name.
>>57743798wouldn't be surprised if they're linked to the end of the advanced society too.
I don't mean to step on OP's awesome dick, but I noticed a blank canvas others might be interested in.>>>2274646I am legitimately not affiliated with either OP, I just saw it and found the differences interesting.
>>57744843this calls for us expanding our hexcrawl even further. with the original being dead center.
>>57739952yo faggot. repost the map with more blank hexes around the center.
>>57743281>This is a beautiful clusterfuckIndeed.
Anybody tried this? Is it any good?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kT1TvSHiu5I
>>57747485It's pretty good; but nothing you can't do with Hexographer. It's stylized better, but it's definitely worth the $15. I'd suggest learning to map (if you don't already know) with Hexographer, and then getting Hexkit to do what you specifically want.
>>57740227>>57740242Stop always shitting everything up with MUH POSTAPOCALYPSE.
>>57747485This guy's voice is softer than Gabe Lewis from The Office.
>>57742971>>57742951Could you put those as legend into a same image with the map?
>>57742951Awesome. Needs a LEGEND. Put everything including descriptions into a single image file. Or document.
>>57747485I see no need for my hexmaps to look like stained-glass windows.
Alright folks I'm back! And...looks like no new additions. Does that mean we're satisfied with it as is? I was hoping to flesh out some of the stuff mentioned here: >>57742392>>57743545>>57743798Don't have any ideas for names, but the world reminds a lot of Heavy Metal. How about "Hexmetal"?>>57745250>>57745268I'm not going to do this. I wanted the map to be small so it could be finished within a thread. Maybe for the next one.>>57753563>>57753988I'm trying to figure out what could be done in a reasonable time frame. If anyone can post examples of good hexmap legends, I can try to emulate them.
>>57754930>HexmetalI like it.
>>57754930>HexmetalSure, let's roll with that.>flesh out the mapI'd like that too, but really we might want a bit of focus first. Like: you've got a list of themes, so how about we pick one to expand upon at a time? Or maybe a region on the map, like a megahex at a time or so?I nominate 08.04 and its surroundings, since they've got exactly two descriptions in seven tiles.
08.03There are rocks standing out of the waters here. and on them are mermaids and Sirens who wait for passing ships. they have been so successful in leading merchant ships to their deaths, that each of their little rocks are covered in stolen treasure and the mermaids and sirens are so weighted down with stolen jewerly that they dare not swim or fly. They have a stock of stolen magic weapons and tech they use on anyone looking to steal their stolen goods.
08.05 is a haven for treasure hunters. Legends of its lost relics are told across every land south of 04.03.
The lizardfolk of 07.04 are divided into many conflicting religious sects.
