Here another rework of Milkengrad, this time without the eastern wall, making room for more houses. Below another part of the map which was now filled with more details, the region south of the Aerelian Lakes.

Here are some more screenshots of the map in progress. Included are fragments of the whole map showing the Aurora Fields and Salsair and the second map shows the ancient Erpheronian capital of Voldar. A couple of extras were also added to existing map parts, so here a few examples of those: the Hèckra now fumes accordingly, and rapids were added to the Vandrina. :)

Finally there's also the isle of Paragonj, and then a zoomed out version of the map showing you how much of the whole project is covered so far :) Looking at that map you get at least a feeling what to place where from the pieces posted above :)

I'm slightly confused.  Is that river in Xaramon meant to be the Dorashi River, or something new?  Its path is different, but the map seems to extend far enough to the south that at least part of the Dorashi River should be visible.  Unless you've not finished drawing that part yet.

Also,the fork that goes around the south of the city at its mouth feels a little unnatural to me.  Would it be possible to remove it, or maybe separate it from the river and have it be its own smaller river that originates from the mountains to the south?

There are indeed some inconsistencies in the southern part of the map compared to the rough main Santharian map at the moment, Mina. The Dorashi River is one such inconsistency - probably because Rayne's rivers closeup map which I put on top of the map didn't include that part, and I forgot to make it fit to the main map, assuming it's all there. Another thing is that there's a plateau visible on the main map.

I will see to correct this in the next version and move parts of the current map up north, so that it's still of use somewhere. The Dorashi for sure is a much larger river according to the main Santharian map and has is further east, so an extra river will probably be added here instead of reworking the current one in full.

Concerning the fork: I assume you're talking about this southernmost river that will be another river other than the Dorashi. Not sure what and how you mean to have the changes, though. You have a problem with the fork or the mouth? Perhaps you can sketch how you want to have it changed?

Update on the southern part of the map: The beginning Dorashi now at its right position and the plateau that was formerly missing.

Made a really quick edit to show what I meant.

Ok, changing the whole branch it is then - I'll see to adjust it accordingly!

Here the northwestern part of the map, the Darksea coast with the Bolder and a bit of the middle part with some massive mountains a lake. Slowly but surely all the parts are getting finished... :D

Coming up tomorrow... The complete map of Vardưnn, at least the version without the captions, but everything covered from top to bottom... A couple of changes were made in already posted and considered completed parts, e.g. the western Thaelon, which got swamp additions, elven settlements etc. Always good to check one's own entry to get things right... :P Anyway, stay tuned, monster map to be posted soon!

Okeydokey... And here it is - the currently still entirely unlabelled version of the map showing the Santharian province of Vardýnn, home of the ancient Erpheronians, complete with key locations like the capital of Voldar, the metropolis of Milkengrad and the enchanted Thaelon Forest, the purported home of light elves. Also shown are the Low and the High Fores, the island of Chrican, the Hèckra volcano, the hobbit villages of the Silvermarshes of course, the Aurora Fields, the Heath of Jernais, the Aerelian lakes and the enclave of the Alvang in midst of the cursed Ancythrian inland sea. To name just a couple of things.

Map size: 3358x2304 pixels, source size: 62.9 MB - make sure to click on the magnifying glass to see it in full in case your monitor isn't large enough to harbour it in full size. Which is quite likely I fear... :) You might want to press F11 for example to see it in full screen mode if you're using browsers like Firefox or Internet Explorer. Press F11 again to switch back to the regular browser few. Or download the whole thing and move around on it at your leisure with the picture viewer/painting program of your choice. :D

Additional note: The map is still subject to alterations. A few more details might e.g. be added especially once location receive their proper names. So whoever still has suggestions in this regard or spots a factual error to something already described on the site, feel free to report!

So there you go, guys - hope you like:
