New Map: Riven Kingdoms

The Riven Kingdoms, 1396 NC

The Riven Kingdoms, 1396 NC

Slowly but surely getting more maps converted from old chicken-scrawl handwritten versions. This one is of the Riven Kingdoms which are often referenced but have so far only appeared on the eastern edge of maps of Daul (which is “The Protectorate” by 1396 NC) or the northern edge of Ayzantium (where civil war still rages at the same time). This map does however include the birthplaces of five characters from the series: Zebulon Baj Nif was raised in Wakminau, one of the three cities at the Bifurcation, where the Dranner River divides into the Ghendal and the Riddle. Captain Block was born in the Dwarf Mountain’s of Garak-Tor while the Gnomish mercenary Fitzyear Coalmounderan is from the neighboring hill country of Nom. Finally, Nesha-tari was born in the north Ayzantine desert at the bottom of the map, known in Zantish as The Hakalya (“the Desolation), while Durkashil Karza’s “Focaru” tribe inhabits the valley of the Fox River to the northeast.

    Oh this map is wonderful Ed. I have some maps I need to convert to. But to what? Which software are you using? Is it any good? Easy to learn? Expensive?

      There are a lot of good mapping programs out there, mostly for RPG’s, but as I don’t know how to use any of them, this is actually just good old fashioned “Paint.” I just scan in hand-drawn maps, then go over them with paint, cutting and pasting itty-biity mountains and trees and what not. I’m sure there are much better ways to do it, as this is pretty labor-intensive, but like I say – I’m simple. 😉

        OMG, that is /very/ labour intensive. 😦 I might do some googling to see what I can find. Thanks for triggering this. 🙂
