    How much is there a difference beteten the realms and Borders of this map, and what will come into your Atlas? Is it the same time?

    not sure i understand the first question.

    the second question gives me a headache because... I'm always tinkering with the technological level and comparing the timeline with certain points in the real world and always changing it. When I started this map it was going to be the present day, though since then i've decided to make it around 200-years in the past and something of a novelty item when it was producted (ie a nostalgic map when other, more modern maps were gaining popularity), deciding on using a more 19th-century style for the atlas maps, like my curent WIP Korachan map.

    As such i dont imagine this map being a part of the atlas. I'm just making this one as a big poster for my hobby room and to help in my Writing (and to help with inspiration while i'm writing, its amazing what some good music, a few maps and being surrounded by your fave books can do to help the creative juices flowing!). I'll almost certainly create a full world map for the atlas, in a slightly more modern projection like a Mollweide (well, i say modern; its pretty old, though more modern than a double streographic) for a two-page spread in the atlas (ill probably make 2-versions of this one - a smaller one for the book and a larger one with more labels for me...

    i like labels

    Small update to show im working on this. I've been adding labels to the two hemispheres (each its own file) between commissions and other projects, and have been slowly adding to the areas outside the hemispheres too, tinkering with colours and textures (though most of those will be done once the text layers (numbering in the thousands now...) are rasterised and flattened to lessen the file size and everything is stitched together.

    the text itself is temporary, pending something crafted specifically for this which needs to number around 6000 words long (and 6 columns, of which part of two are visible in the cropped image below). quite a bit of text to act as 'filler'. im not sure if i want to pepper some diagrams or other images between the text. probably not.

    to give an idea of the size, this cropped image is 9" x 15" and doesnt even include any of the main hemispheres...
