This is the main landmass where my original hero Geoffrey the White Knight, protagonist of a short story I am writing, has all his adventures. At the moment I only have vague macro-regional labels down as I don’t want to over-define the world too early on and distract myself from the actual writing. Nonetheless I think the terrain textures here (made in Photoshop using texturizing filters on colors) look better here than on my earlier maps.
The major regions of the world are the chilly North, the temperate East, the tropical South, and the arid Heart. These are roughly equivalent to our world’s Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Mediterranean/Middle East area respectively. Generally speaking the Southern civilizations tend to be the wealthiest and the Eastern ones the most technologically advanced whereas the North is more impoverished and the Heart a treacherous backwater teeming with squabbling bandits.
Geoffrey the White Knight of course hails from the North, but he got dismissed by his feudal lord and so travels to the South seeking a new living. In the story I am writing for him, he confronts a dragon and carries out an errand for a Southern priest, but that’s all I will spoil for the moment.
