    Wip September Entry: Voyage of the Godslayer

    The whole reason that I got into mapping in the first place was to someday make this map in a satellite style so that I could walk the land of my favorite story. Some fanboy I turned out to be...I just learned that David Eddings passed away back in June and his wife, Leigh, had passed away 2 years ago. So this map will serve as a small mock up for a larger homage to a story that has influenced me more than any other thing in this world, the two people who wrote it, and the cartographer (Shelly Shapiro) who originally mapped it. I will be following the hero and noting important events in his life. The larger one that I, eventually, do will follow his grandfather, the Eternal Man, the Old mentor.

    I'll be putting in the towns and roads next and then start the actual voyage of Garion. You'll notice that it isn't in satellite style but something more artistic...I feel that I owe it to them. There will be much more to come but this is what I have so far after one day.

    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
    -J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of the atom bomb) alluding to The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 11, Verse 32)
