Default The Cartographer Society : Recruiting now!

--.-- The Cartographer Society --.--


Greetings, and salutations. When a fire emerged in the Mansion of the Island, all the maps of the Island were tragically destroyed - except a few special maps which us rangers use to find special Pokémon, for a small fee, of course.

This shortage of maps has produced an unsettling curiosity about the exact geographical features of each of the sub-areas of the Park. Thus, we hereby create the Cartographer Society, and we're open for submissions!

What we need:
-Talented artists or spriters that can produce a beautiful piece of art such as the map below this for each of the sub-areas, and one main map for the whole park. We will give excellent compensation for this service. And I mean EXCELLENT.
-Cartographers! (Aka: Rangers or Trainers) that wish to contribute with their findings during their adventures in the park, in the way of a diary that is given to the chief cartographer at the end of their travel. In order to do this, you'll have to purchase a Cartographer Diary with detailed instructions of how to report your findings. Don't worry, it's a one-time only purchase, and we'll give you a compensation fee for good findings you make.

Together, we shall outline the mysteries of the Island for the posterity.

How to report your findings:

-Once the main artist deploys the oultine for each area (that's to say, only the permiter, with everything inside in blank), he shall divide them in a series of cuadrants. A1, B2, C3 and such.

-The ranger must post which route he takes when entering a sub-area beginning at the outpost.

-Findings of exploration that are made thorough the RP can be summarized in a post here, with a link of the RP.

-Your findings will be evaluated by the main cartographer, and if deemed realistic and plausible, they shall be added to the description for the sub-map.

-Finally, once enough findings are made, the artist will update the map with what is discovered.

Example:

-Cartographer Diary of Ranger Marth. Area: The Woods.
We left the outpost to the north, through C3. Here we found mostly large cedar trees, and there is a strange rock in the middle of the quadrant, with no tree nearby. The rock has a triangular shape, with it's tip pointing straight to the sky. No Pokémon dared approach where we stood, as if it repelled them. The grass around it had also withered. Quite a mystery.


Now, the main cartographer accepts the contribution as plausible and detailed enough, and instructs the main artist to draw a small stone representing it in the map, alongside the description being posted in the detailed map description below.

Ranger Marth gets paid 1k for his finding. (EXAMPLE)

I'm glad to help. I have no artistic talent but as a Trainer I'd be glad to report curiosities and interesting finds, and even moreso once I achieve Rangerhood.

Edit: Oh, and you misspelled the thread title ^_^

I'd be happy to take part with the drawings. I've been told I'm a good artist... Though I do have a quick question... should I do a basic outline for a area or not until more people join?

I have an idea for the Woods.... ^.^ Or the basic shape, that is.

Sequentio's already doing some drawings. However, may the best artist win!

Those who wish to participate must make a drawing of the whole island with outlines AND major features (like Mt. Otkori) only.

Will do. Does it have to be in color though? Or for that matter, inked?
I'll have it posted as soon as I can though. My scanner doesn't work and I can't always get onto the computer with my tablet D:

Preferably something that resembles the map shown upwards or a non-explored map of a sub-area of Warcraft, such as The Barrens Area in this map:

... seriously Marth, the thread title is going to kill me.

On Topic: How much is the Cartographer Diary going to run us, out of curiosity?

I have to discuss this with the other ranger before saying, but I hope it's a symbolic payment.

This seems perfect, I'd LOVE to join this society as a cartographer (never been too good with drawing, and we have no scanner anyway ).

Hehe, next step, Ranger Quiz x3

Hey, whatever happened to this? Seems like a really good idea. Don't die! x]

I'd love to be a Cartographer! This sounds great and could get the Park more organised and easier for RPers to meet up, too. o:

I'll make a map in Diamond/Pearl Style (Seen you know, I'm the only one who has uploaded Diamond/Pearl Over world on The Spriters Resource).

Do we get URPG cash for every map we send in?

EDIT: Is this what you want?

Oh, I think I forgot to mention that our cartographer had an accident on their drawing table ^^
But, if by any means, you wish to help with the project as an artist, send samples like the one's Gamedude sent (which are very adecuate for what we're looking for, if only on a larger scale). Send a sample map on your own style, and whichever design is judged to be better will get the job.
And we, we'll probably pay money for it ^^
