In a recent session of my 5e D&D campaign I found myself grabbing cities from other people’s products to fill in places in my game world. And of course, that couldn’t last. So when I got home I pulled out a pad of paper and worked on replacing these cities.
The first of these cities to get finished is Letath, a small coastal city that the party travelled to and then left within 20 minutes of game play. Basically enough time for me to throw down the map on the table and then fast forward through them negotiating a fair place to teach the young chiefling they were escorting, and then to head north to their true destination of Winterspire.
So of course, I would sit down and detail not only the map of the city from those 20 minutes of game time, but then go into detail naming streets and placing major structures…
You can see where Letath fits into our campaign game on the map of the Eastern Shore that I posted last month (it is over on the left, near the middle of the coastline – the map of the city is oriented with north to the right and south to the left.
Finally here’s a version of the map without the water fill, for easier printing.
