    Map Hyboria

    My version of Robert E. Howard's Hyboria.

    REH left no world map of his Hyborian Age, so many places are based on descriptions in his books or outright speculations.
    I studied several existing maps for this project, some are very different. But I found also a few very similar maps, so I used mainly these for place names and positions, but changed a few things so that they fit - in my opinion - now better the descriptions. So the locations are a combination of existing positions and my own interpretation.
    For the artistic part, however, I used my own style and approach; in this respect I can say the map has no resemblance to other existing Hyboria maps.

    Nice map, Sap. Really comes alive when you add the labels to it.

    Very cool...there's a lot to like here. The compass roses are very nice and the lettering all fits very well. I especially like the way the lettering for the kingdoms works with the map. The deserts are all very nice...love the sand dunes. Awesome work all around.

    It's a beauty Sap - nice colors, labels, everything.
