New fantasy map for Knight of Aslath

Hi everyone,

Talented Italian artist Francesca Baerald has designed a great fantasy map for my novel Knight of Aslath, today I’m going to show you the draft sketch of the map so far, which is looking pretty amazing.

Those of you that have been following my blog for a while will remember the first fantasy map showing Teth-Kiran.

It was time for an update. The first version was designed some years ago using roleplaying gaming software called Campaign Cartographer, but I was thinking for the final version which would go into Knight of Aslath needed to look more professional and, well… artistic. Cue months of scouring the internet looking for great artists who design fantasy maps. I have been speaking recently to a few very talented designers and was really thrilled when I saw the work of Italian Francesca Baerald, whose work you can see on Deviant Art.

Hope you like the new map. I will post about this again when the final version is ready.

About Scott Foley

Scott Foley is a British fantasy writer based in Manchester. He is author of Knight of Aslath and the Dreaming God Chronicle. Brought up on a steady diet of Tolkien, roleplaying games and a never-ending fascination with the question ‘what if?’, writing fantasy novels seemed the only sensible and worthwhile thing to do with his life. Knight of Aslath is his first novel, and he is currently working on the sequel Warlords of the Dreaming God. Both novels form the beginning of the Dreaming God Chronicle and are set in the fantasy world of Teth-Kiran. Knight of Aslath is available on Amazon, and you can find out more about Scott's work at:
