We needed a fill for an ashy terrain upon which we intend to place burnt vegetation and another for a dead forest. We couldn't find an ashy terrain fill anywhere, so we made one. We started out by making a digital photo of real ashes in a large ash pan. We manipulated it then with Nikon Capture FX2 and the GIMP and then ran it through ImageSynth so that it tiles well. It's nothing special, but here it is in case anyone else can use it. The dead forest is an existing Vintyri fill with a color shift made in Capture FX2. Again, nothing special, but here it is in case anyone else can use it. Neither of these fills are in the current Vintyri Cartographic Collection downloads.
