    Wip The Plains of the Five Brothers

    The waters continued to recede and man continued to explore. In a great plain he found five mountains jutting above the green grass and brown hills. These he named for his heroes. The ones whose names had been handed down from generation to generation. Names of men who deified the angry gods and survived. He also found vast fields of stone and rubble where the great cities of his ancestors once stood...

    Another "Godswrath" map. At some point I'm going to have to think about getting all of these onto a "World" map of some sort.

    I really like the color palettes you're using for these maps - very gorgeous.

    The problem I have with this map is that it's called "The Plains of the Five Brothers" but the map does not look very much like plains. It's a lakes district, and it has a bunch of hills/mountains in it at random - I guess I would expect the flat areas between the mountains to be larger.

    I completely understand what you mean. I think I named it more for "literary" purposes than actual geography. "The steppes of the five brothers" didn't sound quite as good. I suppose I could have called it the "Five Brothers Highlands". As far as the lakes go this entire "world" is slowly recovering from a massive flood so there is going to water everywhere for a while.
