For over 200 years the province of Matareia was a colony of the largest empire of Egos, The High Empire of Hirkania. During this period the families of Fagacea, Corinta, Matea and Vast tried in vain, a free trade agreement to end the abuse of the land of Matareia.
Was in 376ab, that Marcus Fagacea in secret with other families joined in a plan that would give them freedom. Later a blow coffers Hyrkanians would start to plan for the independence of the four families. Marcus Fagacea I, as it became known, began the construction of routes throughout the colony, linking all cities with intelligently for the future military supply in the war of independence. The struggle for independence started in 411ab.
With the death of Marcus I, his son, Mayanter , took over the reins of the conflict. But only 30 years later, in the hands of Fauler, cried Marcus Fagacea III, returning from the mountains of the White Dragons, and mounted to the winged epilogue of the war.The numerical and military superiority of Hirkania were not able to overcome the supply routes created by Marcus I and II. For over 9 years Hirkanians troops were faced with strong and supplied soldiers of Matareia. In 440ab Mayanter Fauler of Fagacea was declared emperor, Marcus III recognized as the new nation of Fagacea. In the years following the release of the remaining families was inevitable. In 442ab, Fagacea already had free the land of Matareia and the First District. The family drove Corinta other settlers in the Bay of Corinta 443ab. In possession of the lands west of the old Matareia, Fagacea advance east to ending the achievements of Fishermen's District and the Mines until 445ab. Fueled by Hassun and Larcenia until 447ab, Fagacea got strong and was to emancipate in 450ab with the interference of the Lesser Kingdowns, with the Southern Trait, in agreement with the statement giving total freedon to Fagacea and ending the war.

Good map. Interesting way of doing mountains (and the cliff), I may try this myself one of these days.

If I can ask, are those maps for a novel? RPG? for fun? Just curious ;)

I played RPG in this world for years, and we disbanded the group coz everbody went to live in other towns looking for work or studing. We pleyed like 3 campaign following the same plot. It was called the Legacy of Pendragon and latter was called Paladins of Harsgalt. A Good god sacrificed his life to jail the Dark god. One day, in circles the dark god revive and come to **** the world, but the good good gave gifts to his paladins to fight againt the evil. First time they got weapons, scond time was gens with incredible powers, the 3rd was the come back of some heroes of the second part. A lots of things we not finished wuat was going to 4th chapter, what we never finished.
After this, i wrote a small history, with like 400 pages about the eternal journey of the elves to understand about their existence and the epic search for something like the human souls. A half angel and a female elf walked in entire world, from the simple citys to the most secrets places, almost visiting the heavens. They found some answers about the souls, but they died after discover that heavens are fighting till the end of the seventh day, when the creator will awake.
After few years i tried put it papers, but just after find CG i got how to make it real :D

This is a very nice combination of "modern" signs and labels combined with an handdrawn map feel.
