    Map [Region 1][Map 11] The City States of Akron

    Place-holder thread, a little early I know, and a show of what I've managed to get done so far ...

    Cool, I like your work, and already see areas on your map I need to adjust on my map (so as to ensure they mesh).

    I can see the Harbour Keep as a rebellious province of the City of Akron.

    Akron is a sheltered harbour and port city. Harbour Keep was the guard-house of the straits, keeping the trade routes open. However, agents of the Sais Kingdoms to the North have subverted the loyalty of Harbour Keep and it has rebelled, joining the Kingdom of Sherldon. Akron is now suffering as its trade is now dependent on the good will of the Thane of Sherldon and the Jarl of Harbour Keep.

    Could someone (Redrobes?) check the borders and whether I've got the line ups correct. I think I have, but I think I may have got a little too far out to sea to get some room on the map for labels etc.

    Map A little further south ...

    I've added in some client towns and villages for Akron (as yet unnamed). Extending the mapped area a little bit more to the south, we discover another of the city states.

    Jerat is another port city built on trade. This could be why the region is rich and the residents of the region not too sympathetic to the plight of those further to the east. The city states in the region are merchants, using mercenary forces and ships to keep their trade going ....

    Map Nearly there .....

    More mapped area, including the city of Raedis.
    Raedis is a lesser state, not as large or as grand as Akron or Jerat. However, its placement makes it the gateway to the east and trading ships skirting the Akron coastline stop off at Raedis on their way toward the ports of the eastern nations.

    Also included is an area known as The Lakes, a cluster of small settlements around a series of lakes to the east of the mountains. The area is independent of the city states, with no tribute owing to any of the city states in the Akron region. Each settlement defends its independence vigorously, but there is a loose alliance between them. Lakton is the largest settlement in the area.

    Good idea, the scale bar sticks out and jars a little at the moment. I'll try and blend it in with the surround. The bars on the outside should be scaled, by the way. Each of the surrounding bars is 50 miles, according to the scale on the current scale bar. Is this too big? How big are these map sections supposed to be? It may be that I have to change the scale bar to reflect different distances.

    Map Final Version

    The remainder of the map showing the last of the city states. That of Karthis.
    Karthis has few client settlements, but is renowned in the region for the quality of it's mercenary soldiers. Karthian soldiers are professional and once bought they stay bought, to the death. Honour has a high degree of currency in Karthis. Warder Keep, a client of Karthis, is home to the mercenary group of Artor Cambori. The Warders are in demand throughout the region of Akron. Their reputation is second to none, both in skill and honour

    To the east, some settlements border the Red Hills.
    In recent times, some few settlements have appeared on the eastern ranges of Akron. Three settlements there are, populated by refugees from the plague troubled east. The area has become known as Lesser Groam, for it is from this region that most refugees come. The greater population of Akron does not visit these poor shanty villages, for fear of the plague. The villages are watched, nevertheless, to ensure that the refugees dare not spread too far in to the region.

    To the south lie a few client settlements of the City State of Edran.
    Also included is a regional map to show how the City States of Akron fit in the wider context.
