If you're familiar with the Pathfinder Chronicles (http://pathfinder.wikia.com/wiki/Pathfinder_Chronicles_campaign_setting) setting then you know about Golarion (http://pathfinderwiki.com/wiki/Golarion) and how diverse it is. The world is a snapshot of the Earth during the Late Middle Ages/Early Modern Era, thrown into a D&D style fantasy universe.
The main frame of the story is set in the Inner Sea Reigon (http://www.pathfinderwiki.com/wiki/Inner_Sea_region) which is very similar to the Mediterranean, Europe and North Africa.
Outside the Inner Sea (http://pathfinder.wikia.com/wiki/Portal:Geography) are vast continents left mostly unexplored by Paizo's stories.
I made this map to fill in the blanks for my players and hopefully for others as well.
The full image is available here (http://fav.me/d5l4hkt)

Most of the names are custom to the map and do not reflect Paizo's intentions. The map is mostly complete but is still a work in progress. Feedback is appreciated.

Wow. Really nicely done. Besides the time invested in the artwork, you've clearly done a lot of research on Golarion. I'm a huge Pathfinder fan so much respect!

That's a pretty cool map, I like the friendly, warm colors. Many details, names and things remind me of our own planet, I suppose that's intentional? I don't know the Pathfinder Setting, hence the question.

To me the map looks already finished. Are there any things left to do?

Wonderful map. I know I'm a little late to this thread,but when I saw this map I downloaded it to import into ArcGIS. Here is what it looks like draped over a globe. I thought it would be cool to put a fantasy world into ArcGIS and this is a great base map to start. I hope you like...

YES

Golarion plays a big role in my current Planescape campaign (and it was the focus of one of my previous Pathfinder games). More specifically, Katapesh, Osirion, and Irrisen.

I both approve and enjoy this, and declare my intention of stealing for my own nefarious purposes.

Have some reputation!

Some minor details:

-The Big Sister lake in northern Arcadia is draining in three different directions: Two northeastwards and one southward, into Lake Acatico, which in turn also drains further southeastwards into Petronicus Sound.
-Lake Albus in central Arcadia is connected to a river that has two separate coastal connections.
-Lake Qocha in souther Arcadia also has two separate river drains.
-There is a river in the Taquesuyu Kingdoms that forks into two different outlets.
-The lake in Southern Mwangi (I can't make out the name, I'm afraid) has five different drains going out.
-There is a river in central Tian'Xia that runs on both ends of a peninsula southeast of the Sapphire Sound.
-The river runing east-west across the Valashmai Jungles in southern Tian'Xia has two or three exits (I'm not sure if one is actually touching the coast).
-The rivers running out from Lacus Incubus in Sarusan connect to the coast both to the north and to the south.

Some of the deltas in some parts seem a bit too long, but other than those minor details, everything seems in order.

Love the map! I have been tinkering with adding some stuff the the Inner Sea map I have.

I really like the globe treatment. It would be kinda fun to print it on some adhesive paper and apply to an old globe :D

I have no skill at the Map stuff though :/
