Karlona - An RPG Template
by KnightOfArsford

This is a terrain template that was made for a simple RPG (single-player), but can be used for cinematics, campaign maps, mini-games, and any story-driven games based around villages and forests.

The template features:
- 7 Towns/Villages, including a ruined town
- 3 Caves, for dungeons
- 6 Lairs, for boss fights
- Shallow water for aquatic mobs
- Various clearings for side quests
- Spaces in forests for mob spawn
- (192x192) map size, with (180x180) playable

Give credits if used in your project. Enjoy!


Changelog:

+ Dungeons/Caves now follow a general theme.
+ Details added between trees and roads now have extra decor along its sides.
+ Most empty spaces filled in, and there's still enough space for creeps.

It's better, although it's classic to the core. For future works, you could consider playing more with terrain shapes, making it less flat. Take some inspiration from real environments. Approved.

There are many spaces that are quite empty. Considering the Classic vibe and no custom assets used, the template should have more to show for itself.

Awaiting Update.

ADDITIONAL NECESSARY INFORMATION
  • A credits list in the map thread description is required where the names of the resource (models, skins, icons, spells, sound etc.) authors are mentioned along with the specific resource. It would be a luxury to have links leading to the used resources. Credits in the Quest Log would be appreciated too.
  • A detailed changelog in the first post would be helpful to reviewers and notify fans about the newest implementations to your map.
  • Map thread tags are important. Please use those that fit and not more or none.

Did some "Reforging" and here's my edits so far:

The starting area:
1620761163705.png

1620761256117.png

1620761358635.png


I turned this area into an Orc village
1620758897610.png

with it's nearby Altar of Storms below
1620759062903.png

And then a nearby Orc Lumber Mill + Barracks (for the player to hire mercenaries I guess?)
1620759368119.png


I turned the bottom right village into a Goblin Trade Hub
1620759556131.png


I turned this area into a Night Elf fishing village
1620759763347.png

with some sort of a "sacred tree" (it's the Strahnbrad Large Tree, a Reforged exclusive doodad)
1620759918021.png


I turned the south-middle area in a "Holy hub"
1620760949571.png


I turned this area into the "Ruined Capital City" with some sort of a demonic invasion with an erected Slaughterhouse

1620760499218.png

1620760592947.png

1620760688475.png


The nearby graveyard has also been perverted with some evil cult's meddling
1620760799663.png


And then this area into a "sanctuary fort"
1620761509722.png

1620761691497.png

1620761801162.png


I don't actually have plans here; just thought I could "Reforge" it for someone to use (though I'm having some concepts for this one)

I'll post the map file when I added regions, critters, and more environmental doodads like rocks, plants, etc.

That's cool, man. I've done the template for this purpose, so you're free to edit it as much as you'd like.
