    Wip Anul - a work in progress

    I've started a new world, and am doing my first digital one. This world is to be a colony of Earth's in the far future, and after the collapse of a human galactic empire. Basically it is a post-apocalyptic far-future alien world. The stories taking place therein are those of the survivors (both human and not) in a world that was barely even understood when humans arrived and began populating it 2,000 years previously. '

    The upper classes have some understanding of tech, and use it in their daily lives, while the lower classes are little more than Babylonian-level peasantry. Then there are techno-barbarians in the wastes, a group of priests that worship the technology, or rather a conduit through which an otherworldly intelligence communicates with them and drives their faith in machines and computers and gives prophecies of the events that will come upon its arrival, and extreme cases of technological advancement such as can be found in the super-rich (like energy weapons, holograms, translucent lcd screens, etc.).

    Also, here is one section of the central continent that is complete (sort of).

    Looks pretty good so far and extra kudos for getting the rivers right so far as well.

    Beautiful! It looks very promising. Also, intriguing world lore.

    I'll keep my eye on this.

    Reminds me vaguely of Orson Scott Card's Homecoming Saga. I like it.

    Map looks nice so far, and if you complete it, with rivers, cities and all, no doubt it would be awesome. Keep working!
    And never, never think about giving up in the middle of the project!
