    Post Another continent

    Three more maps from my atlas project - these three complete the continent of Astlania. I only have 23 more maps to complete!

    Looks awesome as always. I can stare at your maps for hours, there's so much to see and try to visualise. So much detail. But tell me, do you manually come up with all these thousands of names, or do you have a name generator to fall back on?

    I used to use name generators, but now I do it all manually. Basically I will try to come up with a "model" language to base a region's names off, and gather maps or texts in those languages, then just plug away at it. Other regions I just let names come to me - usually they will feel like they are from the same language. For most of the countries shown here I used the second method, but I based the names for Nauwunok off the native american language Haida, and the names in the Cuatens (Inica, Upunucuaten, Huanchi, Jelupucuri, etc.) are based off languages spoken in the Amazon basin.
