We never have any luck with this subject. We've had maybe six players who have taken it on to organise a map of the empire and beyond - the stuff outside the areas of PK's maps - and they all fall by the wayside because it is such a big job and r/l changes. The name of the last one escapes me for now but I haven't heard from her in months.

I found a copy of the image that was in the previous link I provided, I guess I saved it on my hard drive because I used it for my events/ quests. Taomiel/Brane was the one doing the maps before I think. If she comes around, I'm not good with making maps but I can help in other directions.

There was another one of that same map, with a larger and closer scale, but I'm not sure what's happened to it. It was on the old message board.

I do have various partly completed maps and other data from Tao but my last mail to her bounced and I have no idea if she is still around.

I'll see if I can contact her and inquire if she is interested in continuing the work.

I don't think I have a really good program to work on this with but if yall want I'd be willing to take what map data we have and start working on an overall world map with mass blankage as SB determines. I tend to enjoy creating 'worlds' as far as design and all that jazz goes so drop me a line if you want me to step up :)

With Morrigan making a few appearances recently I'm hoping to see something of Taomiel too. But I would definitely think it would help this project if there was a team working on it.

well as I said count me in SB though i'd have to use a free program to work on it. Im kinda of the thought that it'd be nice to just do bits and pieces maps rather than have the whole world already 'vaguely known' I think that keeps more with this being an ancient time and there was the great 'unknown' where we've heard rumors of things. :D heh rambling apollogies.

Very little of the world is known beyond the bounds of the empire itself and a little of the kingdoms around it. Perhaps odd pockets where trade ships have ventured or from which expeditions have returned. Maybe occasional areas where a traveller has come to live in the empire and recorded the details of his homeland.
