So a little while ago, I realized that I've never actually uploaded any of my good hand drawn maps. this just wouldn't do, so I got my latest map scanned in. Also, it's been a while since I included a back story for a map.

As the Empire of Illin expanded its vast empire to the coastal regions, the nation of Thul was quickly overrun. Fearing the enslavement of the great empire, the king ordered his citizens onto ships and fled their homeland across the Great Western Ocean. For months they sailed with little food, through deadly storms and crashing waves. On one calm morning, land was spotted. They had reached the Empire of Andulonathia, a flourishing draconic empire. The Lonathian dragons, who were a kindly race, welcomed the refuges, and gave them an island to call home. In turn, the Thul, great craftsmen, made works of wonders that amazed the dragons, and twenty years after the landing, the Island of Men, or Tol Antaim, was given provincial status amongst the Empire.
