So I whipped up a dozen or so tiles and objects to make the worldmap look like it has been drawn on a sheet of wide ruled paper. I thought it gave a rather nostalgic look to it. The paper background, in my opinion, is perfect. And I rather like the water and hill tiles. The grass is okay, but the small and large mountains are too detailed any maybe just need to be zig-zaggy lines instead. (I never made any forest/tree tiles for some reason...?) My intention was to make it look like you were actually playing on a map that someone had drawn on a sheet of paper. Unfortunately, given the 16x16 limitation of the tiles, I kind of hit a wall in the department of character and monster tiles. Ideally, I'd like them to appear to have been hand-drawn with either a pen or pencil, but I don't have the artistic ability to do so. If anyone is interested in playing with it, I can send/upload what I have; It'd be interesting to see what can be done with this.
