So far I have only an idea for a very hot area of land.

Sweet. Looking forward to it but I hope you won't mind if I manage to find time to enter and I also create a hot land. I've wanted to do one for a long time but haven't gotten around to it. I may miss this opportunity as well but one can hope.

I first very raw sketch. Some volcanoes and lava rivers.

@Jax: I surely won't mind. The hotter, the better! ;)

Awesome. I like being able to see how things begin, I'm excited to see how you carry on. By the way, is that going to be a fuzzy bunny rabbit praying up to the volcano just north of center? LOL

I kid, because I always think my initial sketches look funny anyway. This early in the process it's all about visualizing and I think I can see where much of your sketch is going. I'm quite sure that's a rock formation but if you did want to make it into a bunny rabbit I would have to laugh. "Extreme bunny" - reminds me of Monty Python's Holy Grail and the killer rabbit. It looks so innocent until it rips your jugular out.

Ha. I love the MP rabbit. Munchkin (card game by the guy who brought us Gurps) calls it That Rabbit from That Movie and I laugh every tine I see the card.

Looking good, Sapiento, can't wait to see where it goes :)

And with that, the bunny has beaten my chances of winning. Fully sure it will be as awesome as always Sapiento

Thank you, guys. I hope I can meet your expectations!

And I don't think the doodle will turn into a rabbit, the environment is too hot for such a furry creature. ;)

Thank you very much! Your entry looks great, too.

I can remember pictures of volcanoes having several cracks and holes with outcoming lava. It's a lot more viscous than water, so I don't think thats a physical impossibility.

Envy thy name is D. How can you have the patience to all this by hand (or close enough to hand). Looking good.

Sap, for as long as I've been seeing your stuff on Deviantart now, you continue to impress with your detail and style.

/Start chant
Bring back the raaabit, raaabit, raaabit
/end chant

It's looking pretty good Sap I'm trying to come up with another idea myself but I don't know if I'm going to have time after all....business is ratcheting up in the real world for me.

Looking really good...I especially like the bit in the lower left hand corner where it looks like the rock is kind of curving inwards towards the lava river.

Thank you, guys!

Next update. Most details added, and a frame where the labels will probably be.

I love the light source from the lava. Might not even require a sun on this planet. Truly a joy to look at. Great work do far.

Labels added. As this is more a descriptive map than to scale I guess I will do without a scale bar.

Thank you! Maybe I add some more deco at the border.

This looks cool! I love the lava, you captured its glow perfectly. City of Stemtor has a very interesting shape, the rocks curving over the lava river look awesome too. Gorgeous map! :D

Stemtor has a large flight deck for aether gliders; the other settlements rely more on integrated hangars.

The labels really add something to the overall composition of the map. Nicely done Sap.
