    Default Cairan - Regional Map

    Well I think I got this one finished up, thanks to everyone helping get through this and fixing my little mistakes.

    This is the Land of Cairan, apart of a world I call Ashlon. This will hopefully be the setting of a book, I may one day write haha I do everything else but come up with a story... (by everything I mean backgrounds, histories, stories, legends, heroes, ,magic systems etc but still no main story to write about haha)

    Background: Anyways Cairan, had few living on it after the great Cataclysm or the great Divide. A few natives who remember the God wars, and vowed to never use magic in such a way. Years later, other people from the Land of Insania fled from their tyrant warlords and with it a great exodus from the lower class citizens and a few minor Lords. It never would of happened if explorers didn't run a ground on Cairan, in which they founded the city Samerus. The Captain of the ship was Samerus Cairan. And thus Cairan received its name. The Exodus occurred and thousands upon thousands fled East to Cairan, many made it, but others traveled to far north or any combination and landed else where never to be heard of again! Thus with a new beginning for the new Cairan people, they spread far and wide, running into few people, the few they did run into were very hostile and hard to find after the first contact. The nomads of Estilin, and the Rangers of Irolia are the only main Kingdoms that are fully native to the land of Cairan. And mostly recognized as savages, and blood thirsty warriors or at least in the beginning. Once the Lands of Vorderan began to shine forth, and brought forth a Golden Age to Cairan did the Rangers of Irolia see the use of change and adapted. However by the middle of Vorderans Golden age many other kingdoms had sprouted and other settlements founded by others not of Insania or Cairan.

    Well I guess thats enough none sense =D haha but heres the maps

    And here is the WIP thread. Cairan WIP

    Good job Yandor! I like the color variations near the coasts and the roads to be build very much, but I can't see the field texture any more (although it is a good one).
