    The deities of my home-brew (there's a link in my sig to the Wiki) make their homes here. I had originally had them on their own planes, similar to the Forgotten Realms, but starting on this map has caused me to change my whole idea on that. I'll have to update the cosmology section of the Wiki one of these days.

    There is a sort of 'union hall for the gods' map I did in the Finished Maps forum that could go along with this.

    Awesome map so far, Steel General. Not that I am used differently. No temple this time I see, although it still has to do with deities
    Check out my City Designer 3 tutorials. See my fantasy (city) maps in this thread.

    I'd put in an MC Escher style river that flows out of a mountain waterfall then into a lake then out and back around into itself...these are gods after all and they love to frolic in rivers and lakes.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    you are doing this just to thwart The River Police, aren't you?

    You have some great textures going on there
    Something witty and pithy

    Wip But wait, there's more...

    OK, bit of an update.

    1) Added some waterfalls (2), 'swampfalls' (southern edge) and a small river
    2) Added irrigation for the "Great Plantation"
    3) Placed all of the deities demesne's and their symbols (new one for Darkjoye)

    I think that's about it.

    Enjoy

    That looks good. I really like the waterfalls.
    I'm so doing a floating magical island. Dunno how the hell I'm gonna work it in to my campaign but all the things you can do with the map is soo cool.
    So project list so far:
    1. A fortress
    2 A magical floating island
    3 The opposing fortresses (if someone picks that up)
    4 Glacier/fjord region
    5 The rest of my fortification essay
    I don't know why I posted that here.
    Good map anyway. Cheers!

    The longer yer here, the longer that list gets...mine is so long I forgot what's on it. I can't even imagine the lists of the trailblazers of the site.

    Thanks Hoel, I had a few doubts about the perspectives of the falls' at first but I am happy with them now.

    I seriously would look over Ascension's asteroid tutorial (if you haven't already) if you're thinking about the whole floating island thing. I really think its well suited for it - as a starting point or reference if nothing else.


    As far as this beastie goes - got a bunch of labeling to do and maybe some additional terrain features if I can think of anything that makes sense and that should wrap it up.
