The map depicts a fantasy country called Oakfall, a religious-throwback monarchy with a shifty priest race, twin heirs to the throne and vassals with crumbly-loyalty. The setting is mostly low/dark fantasy, the priest race being the only non-human humanoid or sentient race (and they look almost exactly human). Surrounded by countries of more 'contemporary', uniform religion, Oakfall returned to a feral, chthonic form of faith guided by the Priests of Nogur. Under the blessing of their demon-god, the kingdom is abundant in wealth and peace, atleast until the second heir is too qualified --too loved-- to be ignored, and wants more than he probably should.

This is the second map project I attempted, the first one had scaling issues and was abandoned. This one also took awhile to finish, mostly because it got forgotten out of negligence and/or frustration. Cartography is harder and requires more work than I initially (naively) expected, but still very interesting and I learned a lot from everyone here.

Here’s hoping the next map will be better and finished faster!

Hi, I cannot send you PM, because I'm new on this forum. I would like to use your map or some similar map like this in my internet game, so could you tell me how much cost this map -> some approximate price. Thank you for this info. Thanks.

This is amazingly done. I would be inspired to have this printed and put on the wall around my game room just for a backdrop. Wonderful.
