Map and Codex Updated
Still doing some tweaking, the map and Codex have been updated. Here's a summary of what I've done:
- Added a couple additional kingdoms in the west near Thracia (the region is known - as will be seen on an upcoming regional map - as the "Unhallowed Wilds"). Thracia seemed lonely so they have some friends now - Illthia, primarily made up of refugees from Tir Naroth, and Zarinth, a gothic horror-ish kingdom in the vein of Barovia.
- Essengard also seemed a little isolated so I moved it to the Emerald Coast and turned it into an expansionist power who recently conquered a large chunk of Calythir.
- In Essengard's place is the ruins of the "Kingdom of the Damned", formerly the kingdom of Tir Naroth (they tried to take advantage of Elthanamir after their war with Marasinia; it was a mistake that the survivors lived to regret).
- I also split up most of the woodlands. I realized that I had forests with a single name that were often the size of entire countries (decent-sized ones, like France). While this isn't unheard of, it was more common that it should have been.
There may be more small changes here or there, but overall I think most of the setting is now locked in. Next I need to start re-introducing things like the simple climate system, the world calendar, etc.
I also uploaded the Wonderdraft file if you want to modify the map for your personal use (and own Wonderdraft).
