Sorry for the necro posting, but here's an update.
Been neglecting this map for a little while, but I've gotten right back at it, unfortunately though, my nephew almost destroyed it with a cup of tea. He knows I'm pretty ****ed at him. It's not that dirty IRL, but the tea is obviously pretty exaggerated. I suppose it gives it a certain aged look.
Anyways, the Golden River originates from a spring in the Cold Guard, which finds its source from an underground river that comes from an underground sea underneath the Guardian Wall. Freeport is the coastal city, and is connected to Stronghill (an orc city) via trade route. Haven's Edge is the capital, found on the peninsula on the lake. The 30 mile thing isn't set in stone, I may change it later to match the rest of the world.
