    I think it would work better higher up, but that might work too o.o

    i'll try both and post them up when i have chance to.

    in the meantime, here's another region, Azazem/ This is another map that's adjacent to a region I've already mapped (Korachan to the west) so I had to refer to the Korachan map to make sure the coastline overlapped perfectly. Though looking at it the coastline, particularly in the middle and western part of the map seems a bit meh - might need to go over it to add some more oomph, whatever oomph is

    Vorropohaiah, I think your link is broken (unfortunately).

    I think the coastline is good. Every coast can't be oomphy, some meh is needed too Look at North Africa, that's some really meh coast… but then you have the extreme oomph of Greece and Turkey just north of it, which gets emphasized by the meh. Contrast is good

    By the way… your project is extremely cool and I love reading about the process and your thoughts about it.

    some more maps for the Atlas. Also, i was compliling a list of some other kinds of maps i could include in the atlas and came up with this:
    • religion maps (range of certain faiths and the territories and numbers where they are most popular)
    • continent maps
    • polar maps
    • trade maps
    • language maps
    • wind / climate maps
    • weather maps
    • landmass maps
    • empire maps/expansions over time.
    • war maps
    • exploratory maps


    that should keep me busy for a while, especially considering I've barely scratched the surface of the normal maps. Which reminds me, i need to redo the Korachan and shibboleth maps as the projections are different to those of the other maps and don't match up the way they should do. Also, as i do more maps for the inner sea region, the coastlines are starting to converge - with lots of repetition, particularly the islands in the Khamid and Tzallrach maps, for instance.

    Jalyha and Lingon like this.

    I love these maps. Are you planning to have a similar level of detail to the Korachan one (posted on page 2) on all the maps eventually? Looks like an insane amount of work, but it's definitely worth it!
