Lake-town Map by JonHodgson Lake-town Map by JonHodgson
2012 Sophisticated Games/Cubicle7 Entertainment Ltd

A big double page spread map for Lake-town Sourcebook for The One Ring rpg: [link]

This shows an idea of what the rebuilt Lake-town might look like. The aim was to give enough info for Loremasters to be able to guide their players through Lake-town, without being too prescriptive about individual streets and so on, which runs the risk of being too dry.

A lot of hours in this one! ArtRage and Photoshop.

Very great, this caught my eye immediately from your gallery. Excellent work. I have never tried drawing a whole city in such a small amount of space (paper). I always end up drawing too big, or running out of room to really capture the vastness a city holds. However your detail is immense all compacted within a space that at first seems small, but is truely beyond measure.

I wish I had seen this illustration when I was first reading the Hobbit years ago. Because I had the hardest time imagining what Lake-town looked like.

Really? Isn't there an illustration of Laketown in the novel done by Tolkien himself?

Ever since I first spied some previews of this imagining of Laketown... I've wanted to guide my players there, so their characters could experience the wealth of culture and prosperity after the death of Smaug. Now the streets are rife with intrigue and new dealings as the ever presence of the Shadow begins to seep into the town...

I'm guessing you're thinking of the movies? No, this one is for the roleplaying game The One Ring.

Well, Lake town hasn't actual been shown the new hobbit movie. But in the 1977 one it was.

And yes, i am. Maybe you should attempt to submit your concept for the new movie.

*Pushes up my taped horn-rim glasses* Uhm, excuse me, but this map doesn't match up to the image that you drew of Lake-town...

Teasing! I am soooo glad that you put this up! And I love it, best map of Lake-Town I've seen!

Come to think about it, it's pretty stupid to build a city out of only wood right next to a dragon's nest...
But the drawing is really cool :)

I don't know how you find time for it all. I take my hat off to you! Great perspective and texture. Very nicely done indeed, conveying the information in a believable way, but not overly precious, as you say. Don't want a lake town to be too dry...
