Question about the Empire Map

Postby Miss Magical on Thu Jan 13, 2011 8:26 pm

(The map I'm asking about can be found here.)

My question is if the red dot on the map north of the Goblin Marshes is where Nanthalion is located, and if the other cities on the Map have been named -- in particular I am curious over the city south of Lake Eld. If they haven't been worked on outside of location, I was wondering if I might be able to help out in that capacity.

The red dot is Nanthalion. North west is a circular range of mountains that represent Valencia. Following the river to the sea shows the location of Thallis. The other dots may be referenced in the Gazeteer and I'm waiting for updates on those.

The map you linked was the my first compilation made from the material I recived from previous works. The red crown is indeed the position of Nanthalion. You can see it better on this map:

Empire Map.
You can zoom quite far into the map!

The settlement south of Lake Eld is was one of the several locations that looked good for a settlement. You can see it is still there and if you want to know more please check the Gaz Page of Lake Eld, you can find it here.

Thank for your interest.
