This commissioned map shows Gondor around 2000 years before the War of the Ring (specifically, 1149 Third Age, the first year of the reign of King Atanatar II).

I really enjoyed to create the map together with the client, who also delivered the translations of the place names. I had to assemble details of various existing maps into this one.

Done in PS

Very nice. I imagine the placename translations come from Silmarillion or something...but have absolutely no recollection of my reading of that book. I read it but it felt too much like studying. :)

Excellent (as always !) and very pleasant to see a Middle-Earth map of another age!

Maps are a good way to support and picture history, in real life as in fantasy !

Awesome as usual Sap. This one really makes me smile. Middle Earth was my first trip into fantasy and I've never really come back. :)

Great map! And it's always nice to see something "Middle-Earth related". ;)

Lovely map, Sap. I'm always partial to a bit of Tolkien. :)

Even in the early third age, the names would have been in the Sindarin/Westron miscellanea we are familiar with, rather than in Quenya. Quenya was already an uncommon language amongst elves in the first age, in Numenor during the second age it was seldom used, mostly for kings' names and other ceremonial usages.

Thank you, guys!

I can't say much about the place names, they were provided by the client.
