This map was a commission for a novel, intended for print. Created in Gimp/Inkscape using icons made for this map.


I'm still working on a simplified e-book version.

Interesting place names on that map. :) I'm kind of curious about the "Y" icon used for monasteries and placed on the top of the legend.

Great work, though the mass of mountains makes it a little cluttered in my opinion. It will be interesting to see the simplified version.

Cool map, I bet there is a lot of volcanic activity there.

It was specifically required to have that mountain density. I originally had less but was asked to fill them in more. That is why I dropped the mountains down to a shade of grey rather than full black as originally done. With them solid black you could barely make out the cities in the names.

The Y seems to be a religious icon for the mountain tribes.

Thanks for the praise!
