Planet Kridxen by kridxen Planet Kridxen by kridxen
might do an update to this later, but it's done for now, this is the first time that all the continents have been shown off together so one can get a scale for how big each landmass is compared to the other landmasses... also had to think about what to call all the oceans between them, I've always known about the endless ocean but not the thunderclap or the middle or north oceans

Edit: thought I'd add links to the varrious named continents:
Kathu: [link]
Triscape: [link]
Oritoshi: [link]
Callor: [link]
Ravos: [link]

I like the looks of this, especially your choice of lettering. This would be an interesting world to explore.

Really cool, realistic looking map. Tell me, how did you make it all look so craggy and natural? Did you use some scientific, geological guidelines or did you just come up with it all by yourself? :)

it's 100% human hand squiggle :D I really did build this from the ground up, I thought about tectonic plates and how they nudge up against each other to make mountain ranges. The only thing computer is the more sharper contrast on the map and the blue coloring. I was stunned that I got so many of the continents completely enclosed @_@

Interesting, I'll remember to think about tectonic plates as well next time I make a map from scratch. ^^

I also that interesting whirlpool-like island chain in the far south. What is that?

um... how much of an explanation do you want? :D this is for my D&D game that I've been working on for the past 10 - 20 years of my life:

The great whirlpool to the south is the remains of what was once the Xekblight, a horrific territory of land that belched monsters of the deepest parts of the human unconscious. It took the might of Cyndahl herself to lift the very earth away into obliteration, the roots of the land went deep almost to the center of the earth itself before they were routed.... honestly I don't know how whirlpools are formed I suppose I should've researched that before I put a giant one in the middle of the ocean @_@ There's a similar above-ground formation on Callor there as well but it's really freaking hard to translate an overview map to a sectioned off one -> [link]

Ah, cool!

No prob, explain as much as you want. I like reading walls of text anyway. ^^

Wow! 20 years? That's a long time to develop stuff. How do you keep track of it all? XD

ah yes, organization the bane of my existence >>_<< to tell the truth it's all sprawled out over a wide assortment of texts and such but it's finally coalescing into my supplement book for Dungeons and Dragons 3.5. The beta release is here: [link]

This illustration is no doubt going to go into the 3.0 launch which will have the other two Sisterhood classes defined as well as an equipment list of the unique items to be found on the world... Also stats for the deities and other important characters throughout the realm.

if you're interested in a copy of the --Beta-- book it's available here: [link] but honestly I would wait for the 3.0 version I'm currently working on :D
