PJs next isometric collaboration has begun in the forum.
This time, we are going to build a pirate island(s). First time this round, the borders must end with water. Anything related to the general pirate feel is cool. Several examples are: caves, buildings, forts, piers, ships (floating or not), pirates , palms, treasures, ghosts, skeletons, and any fantasy element as long as they are pirate-y.
Welcome to the ISObbean. Yaaaarrrrrr!


This project features Dawnbringer's's award winning palette.
