Cattle_Brands_v0.1.pdf - Google Drive
The Western frontier. A land of outlaws and renegades, settlers and prospectors, and cowboys and indians. Not to mention the fearsome critters and ghosts. The heroes of Cattle Brands are the drifters, bounty hunters, marshals and rangers who learned the hard way that most tall tales have more than a grain of truth to them. Whether it's for fame, fortune, or a sense of duty they protect honest folk from the desperados and demons that make frontier life a living Hell.

Video Tutorial: Making a Fantasy Map in Photoshop
In this series I will show you my process of making a Fantasy Map in Photoshop.

The map took about 17 hours to make. I have recorded it all and they can be watched here. However I have also included a time lapse for those who want to see the process in a shorter period of time.

This is not a tutorial on how to use the basics of Photoshop. So if you are a beginner in Photoshop you might be confused and I might go to quick a couple of times. Just keep learning and trying. You can always message me on my facebook page if you have any questions, I will be happy to help you out.

Scarlet Storm by RvBOMally on DeviantArt
This is my wrap-up of Scarlet Storm. I'm rather disappointed that I didn't finish it properly, but the creative spark I had for it was gone, and I figured it would be better to finish it in this way than not at all. On the plus side, you can expect updates of my other Solar System timeline, Sunshine, soon.

Arabian Days by RvBOMally on DeviantArt
Something based on some musings I had on the Islamic golden age never ended. I ended up with something roughly based on Max Sinister's Chaos timeline (and QuantumBranching's cover), GURPS Caliph (and, again, Bruce's cover), SRegan's Cradle World, and a bit of bl777's Rising from Steam. Many thanks to BadgingBadger for giving me the idea for the PoD.

The Long-Lost Sister by AlexanderAbelard on DeviantArt
For centuries, Venus's eternal shroud of cloud cover tantalized humanity. Burroughs, Verne, Wells, and the other founders of science fiction envisioned a lush steamy world inhabited by their dashing sword-and-planet protagonists beneath the haze. The soviet Venera probes revealed this as the childish fantasy that it was. Perhaps it was that disappointment, and the fall of the USSR, which had been the main explorer of Venus, that caused humanity to neglect their sister planet even in the beginning of the Second Space Race. Only after three monumental changes did the colonization of Venus begin.

Under the Light of Earth by AlexanderAbelard on DeviantArt
For half a century, Earth's moon was untouched by the children, and then the grandchildren, of those who had watched the Giant Leap. But then, they came, and they came, and they came. The decline of fossil fuels paired with the ever rising need for energy and raw materials made the vast deposits of rare earth metals and helium-3 in the lunar soils irresistible. The joint ESA-NASA Artemis program brought back the helium-3 to power the first industrial nuclear fusion reactor. When it roared to life, it changed human civilization forever. The United States and Europe were forging the carbon nanotubes for the cable of the first elevator within three years. Soon came a slew of nations scrambling for a share of the moon's wealth. Nine different polities set up on the moon, bringing with them a hundred thousand people. Towns rose from the dust or tunneled underground. Maglev rails tied the helium and water mines in the polar regions to towering space elevators at the equator. International agreement stated that miners had to be rotated up to the O'Neil cylinder cities of the elevator counterweight every seventy two hours to assuage the health effects of microgravity, though some, especially Selecorp, Russia, and Central Africa, tend not too. By the midpoint of the 21st century half of Earth's energy supply was coming from the moon.

Mars - Dawn of the Blue Period by Tonio103 on DeviantArt
Eurobund (TTL EU, which comports Europe and parts of Russia), the United States of North America and her allies (Brazil, South-Africa, Australia), China and her allies (some east Africa countries and the Korea Union, Philippine) and Japan and her allies (South-East Asia) went to conquere Mars, thus under the terms of an international treaty and under the direction of an NGO created by philanthropists and scientists, the Earth-Mars Foundation (EMAFO).
Several crisis and disastrous events slowly made those super-nations (collapse of the industrial agriculture, sea level rise, break of a civil war in China) crumble. The Foundation –as once secretly planned– took then everything in hands. To stop the civil war bane to come to the Now Red-Blue Planet, referendi and territorial reorganization were undertaken. As a result, Chinese, European and North-American sectors where dismembered two brand new nations were created : the Martian Republic (parts of ex-European Sector plus parts of ex North-American ones) along the Kasei Union around the ex-Japanese Sector.
