World Map by Dyemelikeasunset World Map by Dyemelikeasunset
The world map was drawn by Giant explorers. The Southern Giant Empire is the most powerful nation of the world, holding the most political authority than any other race. The entire south is united under their rule, while the rest of the world is greatly effected by their trade and influence. The compass, therefore, points South.
The oceans surrounding the various continents are unexplored, often believed to be the end of the world.

This map doesn't include any city names yet, and I may draw a more comprehensive version of it in the future, so think of this like a rough guide for now.

At the moment, I'm leaning towards calling this fantasy world "The Four Realms," please let me know what you think in the comments below! (also feel free to suggest some names too, haha)

The best thing about this map is the slightly cartoon aspect of it, but still the potential for all kinds of misadventures.  Imagine shipping textiles from the Fae Realm to Myrmidon Nation, but the only good way for a given season is by sea, and it gets seized by Gnome pirates looking for material to make or repair their sails.  Then the offended parties try to find the pirates, but it's festival for the Djinni so they can't transport any real martial forces for a full week.  What would the paperwork be like for this League of States??  :/

I'm in the process of creating my own (fan) fantasy and I love your map! You should offer "Fiction Map Maker" as a paid commission.

I hope you do someday. I imagine there are writers out there creating their own worlds but haven't an artist bone in their body.

Thank you!

If this is the entire world, then it reminds me of the Earth during the Paleozoic and Mesozoic eras when the Earth was dominated by the supercontinent Pangea. This ultimately broke up into smaller continents that drifted apart, a process hinted at in your world by the numerous fissures between land masses. Perhaps the ancestor of all your humanoid races appeared on the intact supercontinent that preceded the current state of your world, and then diversified as continental drift separated groups.

Yeah, that was kind of the idea! I still haven't gone into the evolutionary history of my world building yet, but it'll probably be something along those lines

Damn, this looks like something you'd find in DnD! Like, seriously I can see like four players using this as a map of the world they travel through.

I've taken a moment to read through the gallery you have for this world so far and I have to say I'm very excited! The races are really well defined, and I love your spin on magic. This is a beautiful and very well done map as well, and I can't wait to see/learn more about your world!

Keep up the good work! :D

Hey Dye, I am making a Mercenary guild and I as wondering where would be a good spot for the guild to located, I was thinking near Heaven's Summit and the Lagoon of Solitude
Reply
:icondyemelikeasunset:
Dyemelikeasunset Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
Actually both those spots probably wouldn't be good-- Heaven's Summit is the highest peak in the world of Ocean of Cycles, and the Lagoon of Solitude is deeply protected by the Fae, who are a very secretive and xenophobic race
If you're looking to set one up in the East, I think the Sparkling Gulf or somewhere in the Unseen Rainforest would probably be best! The Rainforest is a good spot, since there are a lot of mercenaries in the underground world of the Dryads's empire

Just wanted to say that I really like the way you did the lettering on this map.  It's so well integrated and still manages to be perfectly legible.  Was it done by hand, or did you use a font?
