Sundown Commission


Hello everyone. Here is a map I recently completed for Grasswatch Games. The game is set in a coastal region that was the site of a massive meteor impact quite a long time ago. Sundown is a region surrounded by mountains to the north, south and east, and the ocean to the west. The creators describe this setting as:

...a low tech science-fantasy set in a transhumanist frontier. Think cyberpunk goes west. It’s an episodic game that focuses on otherism, class and colonialism.

A lot of thought and planning went into the design of each of the towns and cities shown on the map. The creators sent me a very detailed brief describing everything from the demographics to the architectural influences (many of which drew from Asian sources).

The setting lends itself to narratives focused on political intrigue and social identity, The game operates on a rules light D6 resolution mechanic intended to emphasize the storytelling rather than mechanical aspects of a role playing games.

The company launched a kickstarter campaign to fund publication of their first print run of the game. and just two days in (as of writing this) the project has received two thirds of the needed funding. If this sounds like something you might be interested in I’d encourage you to head on over to their Kickstarter page where you can learn more about the project.
