And before that he would have had to watch his entire family tortured, abused and killed. Oh, and he certainly wouldn't have been brought back alive They might have kept some of his female relatives as entertainment, though.

    But hey, the wizards in my story aren't really that nice people.
    That's not his domain... that's Talaszhar's ... don't worry... I've got plenty of evil... enough for the both of us...

    and why not bring him back... so you can do it all over again... but you see how fast you can get it all done before he dies again... lol

    Well, I never claimed I understood any of the gods

    There are no gods in my world. The wizards committed genocide on all the believers as they were not really compatible with their doctrine and all that.

    I like the banner btw. Gotta sleep now.

    It looks better, especially the banner (which I already thought was more than ok).

    The one thing that is starting to "bother" me is that this isn't really a map I would expect in a fantasy book. I don't understand why it looks like there are two maps in one. And I don't understand why there are no cities. But that's just because most fantasy books have a simple overland map with some cities and stuff. Don't get me wrong here, originality is always good. Just wondering...

    Love the second banner style Delgo.

    Still working on reading your prologue, once I do I'll post my thoughts.

    They look cool enough. So I never do pencil stuff, but how much time did you invest in this map so far?

    Well.. this is all being done in Photoshop, I did the banners in Illustrator and then put them in via paste as smart objects. Time so far in this map... (Since I do have so many things going on at the moment I try to dedicate some time to it) Maybe eight hours so far.

    The symbols are mine that I scanned in from drawings. I'm doing it in greyscale cause its cheaper to print than color.

    The reason for no cities, is this isn't as much a map as it is artful representation of the current state of things for the denizens of my world. A visual aide if you will. Maybe that will give you a better idea of what I'm shooting for here. With this map anway.

    So originally you said you were going to do/use three maps...
    The map you have been working on with the two worlds, does that count as the second map or the second and third map?

    If it's the second, what's going to be in the third map?
