Requested by a family member, this map is based on the Belgariad and Mallorean series by David (and Leigh) Eddings.
Most of the work was done in GIMP, but the ocean texture was almost exclusively done in Photoshop, and the heightmap was edited in Wilbur.
Special kudos to everyone who helped me improve greatly upon what I had thought was a nearly-finished product. THANKS!

As I own nothing about this map, feel free to use it in whatever capacity you like, providing that you respect the original authors'/artists' copyrights. (Read: feel free to print it and put it on your wall, use it in your game, etc. but don't claim it as your own or try to make money off of it.)
Thats really amazing! I love your mountains, and I'd love to know how you made them look so great lol.
And thanks to you, too, bobslayer! The mountains were actually a royal pain. I've been meaning to post up a mini-tut on them in hopes that some of the experts around here may be able to point out inefficiencies; I suppose I'll need to do that sooner than later
Your Aunt should be delighted!

Thanks SG! I certainly hope so
Love the map... but I curse you, because now I must go back and read the book series... again! Seriously, a really nice map!
Really nice. I always like maps that have the sea in darker colors.
Awesome map! I remember reading both series years ago - loved them. A quick question if you don't mind.... you stated above that you were ok with folks using the map for personal use - would you by any chance have a version that isn't labeled? And if so, would you be willing to share it? I am going to be running a D&D-style campaign for my family, & I've been looking for a world map to set my campaign in. I would like it to be unlabeled to I can fill in countries, cities, etc. specific to my campaign. Your map would work wonderfully for my campaign concept. Thanks either way, and again, great job!

i would also be interested in an unlabeled version of this map, or even better, the original heightmap. i'm trying to make a belgariad mod for medieval 2:total war. my email is my username at gmail.
