For this swap you will create a single journal page with a map of a fantasy world that you make up. If you want to incorporate bits of the real world, or reimagine it in a new way, that is ok too. It should be roughly 8 1/2" x 11", but if it isn't exactly perfect please be understanding. Rating should be based on the effort that your partner put into the finished piece. You do not have to distress it or make it look like a treasure map, but you certainly may.

It should be mailed in a large flat envie to avoid folding

The map must include:

1) a compass rose

2) a name or title for your world

3) at least 3 geographical landmarks - ie. river, mountains, lakes, mines, caves, beach, etc

4) towns/cities/regions/etc must be labled with names - (if you have any on your map)

5) It must be mailed in a protective plastic sleeve and it must be on a sturdy paper or have a sturdy backing slid behind it to keep it safe in the mail

If you need some help getting started then take a gander at this great tutorial on how to draw a fantasy maps that I found online


If anything's unclear or if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask :)
