Hi All,

I had been working on this map for quite some time. I was curious if anyone can take a look and make sure I got everything correct.

Thanks!

Looks rad but it's missing a sea monster somewhere in the water parts.
They came with white hands and left with red hands.

Love it! I made my first map a few months back, and boy does it take a lot of time, so major props to you.

What font are you using?

Awesome
But a couple of minor things I noticed...

-Jhenna mountains not named
-Rutu Jelba not Ruta
-Maybe add Skullcap to the map.

It looks amazing and you've done a great job on this and I hope you'll continue and do some more
Rejoice. For very bad things are about to happen

Thanks! I'm using a font called Charter. But, the only reason I'm using it was because I made most of this on my iPad. I might change later

Thanks... I have made those edits....

I wonder what the mountains at the bottom of the map are called. Do you know?

I will have to learn how to draw one!

I want to actually add more graphic design stuff on the map. Hard to do on the iPad

I think this is awesome.


Two other things to look at:
1. Galeen should be Geleen
2. Those mountains between Omari and Mersin don't appear in the book's map.

Cool thanks.... I took some creative liberty. I hope that is ok, but I also wonder if it makes the Bonehunters march impossible

If you planned it that way, then artistic license is fine. Probably looks cooler that way anyway.

Looks like a good place for it. In a close distance to Dosin Pali, so that Felisin, Heboric and Baudin can see the light of the burning city in the distance, but still a good distance away from the sea Posted Image

Nice stuff, but at this resolution there's a lot of blank space on the map.

Here's my version (well, D'Rek's version which I blew up and added the names to) which is rough AF but I did add a lot of the details from the Chain of Dogs march maps.

According to Deadhouse Gates, yes. According to Deadhouse Landing, no, you can run out of the mine entrance and down to the sea in about 5 seconds.

After screaming into the Abyss for a while, my conclusion was that you can get to the sea relatively quickly from Skullcup, but that was no good for Team Heboric, they needed to get to a specific coastline where they were going to be rescued, so had to cut north-west across the desert (via the Jade Statue).

Or we can chalk that up to another inconsistency.

I know the feeling too well ...
After reading Kellanved's Reach I really thought about starting separate pages in the wiki for the characters in in Path to Ascendancy

I will take a look into that... I had a hard time deciding where Skullcup should be.

Here is an update. Does anyone have any feelings on what content I should add to the area at the bottom?
