Allal, and my near-future plans
I got a little bit burned out coming up with names for places in Jalaun, so I decided to move to the other side of Sorol and throw together a map of the Kingdom of Allal. I have another map in progress (about 75% done) for Jalaun, and then the next map I do I plan on walking through step-by-step here if people are interested. It would be a sort of WIP/tutorial combo.
Also, the KML has been updated.
Mid ociean volcanic islands...
I believe other maps by HandsomeRob, include a minimal amount of off shore shallows. However these volcanic islands could very well have steep slopes dropping to the ocean floor and the source of these volcanoes.
Hawaii for instance has steeply sloping beach dropping towards the sea floor. Volcano islands are seabottom mountains. There would effectively be no shallow areas per se, except right at the beach - and this wouldn't show in a map.
HandsomeRob's maps have a very much National Geographic feel to them, don't lessen it because its less "artistic" than other maps found here. These are very technical maps and accurate in look and feel, more so than any artistic map... ;)
