Weekly Website Wednesday: Jerry’s Map

This week’s website is all about imagination and meticulous attention to detail.

One of the most interesting things about Jerry’s map is that it doesn’t just grow outwards. Established areas of the map can be destroyed or changed through phrases randomly pick from a deck of cards, or from Jerry’s rules about how the people of his invented world acquire resources and services. For example: if a city grows in size so too must its farmland to feed everyone.

Jerry’s map is never complete and he plans on working on it for as long as possible.
