This is my concept art of the Azure Island's Map with all its countries and kingdoms and major cities. Hope you like it. It took me a few hours but I hope to find a map maker to do a detailed map of this. Anyone interested please contact me. I need to have several maps made for this series.
The Kingdoms Of Azure
The Imperial Kingdom: Ruled by the imperator Lavist Nedimus the IV. It is also considered a holy nation it is not only the capitol for the of the Azure nation but it is the capitol of the shrine of the gods. It has the most powerful and largest standing army of any nation in the known world. With nearly 1 out of every 5 people in direct military service to the Imperator it is an army that is to be feared. Tha nation itself is mainly focused an exporter of good. While it receives many imports in the form of tributes from other nations it does not really import much itself from trade. Their colors are Blue, Gold and White
The Havel Kingdom: A kingdom ruled by King Tamerion of Javel. A kingdom very loyal to the imperator and it's own king. Being one of the only kingdoms in the Azure nation to be friendly with New Haven it is a much needed ally. They are taken well care of by the Imperial kingdom and its people are mostly farmers and craftsman. The number of people in military service to the kingdom is roughly 1 out of every 15 people making it have one of the smaller militaries in the Azure mainland. Havel tends to stay out of uprisings and other forms of war and naturally stays neutral during most conflicts. This has earned Havel a reputation of being the imperials pet; insinuating a lack of service to the kingdom. Their colors are Green, Gold, and Brown
Kingsland: Kingsland is known for having a large oligarchy. Kingsland is ruled by many kings and has the largest population of nobles in all of Azure. The cities are decadent and the people tend to be a little bit on the snooty side. This being said their are many families in service to the nobles and their families guard their noble masters with great valor. The soldiers of Kingsland is considered the most elite of all forces. Not only for their mastery of combat but their carefully guarded essence techniques. Their colors are Gold, White, and purple.
Hollowcross: Hollowcross is known as the land of despair. It is mainly a dead and dying desert said to be the site where the dark world first entered Lyorta. It is a scared and ruined land. Recently it changed control from a rogue group of mercenaries known as the Silver Jackals to a prince of the Imperial nation known as King Darius The Golden Lion of Demior. The land is known to be a criminal haven but now under the control of the Imperial army under the command of King Darius it has become much more stable. The diameter grows slowly as more and more bandit gangs are completely dismantled. The goal of the King is to turn Hollowcross into a productive nation. Though the young prince regrets every vowing to complete this task. He is known as the dreadful prince to the people. Thier colors are White, Red, and Green.
The Belbora Allience: The Belbora alliance formed as a friendly resistance to the Imperial forces. They are a collection of nations who are not loyal to the Imperial kingdom while at the same time are. They retain their full freedom and do not pay tribute or assist in the empires campaigns but they do provide support from time to time. In return for their friendliness the Imperial empire tolerates them. It is a stable economy of its own and they do much trading with the stray islands west of them. Their colors are Green, Brown, and Silver
The Flaggard Kingdom: Flaggard is the backbone of the imperial empire. Flaggard is ruled by King Belrog The Wise. A powerful king with an army that is near that of the imperials own army. They are also known to forge the best materials around. They also supply most of the materials for the kingdoms military campaigns. Without Flagard their would be no imperial empire. Their colors are Brown, Red, And Gold.
The Red Empire: A recent uprising in the east. The Red Empire is ruled by Prince Talius Of Iverfost who has recreated a sorcerer's kingdom. The bulk of their forces is chimerium and golems. He is a direct threat to the imperials and feels that his lineage is the correct lineage to rule. From his line arose the Imperial kingdom in the first place and the current imperals nobles are frauds. So with his military forces he plans on taking over the land and ruling it with harsh power. He also feels the empire failed to conquer do to the current nobles softness. If he was ruler he would use all forms of power to hold control of the land.
The Freelands: Mostly unexplored dense wilderness. This is where the majority of the lands wildlings live and mythical beasts. It is largely unexplored but outlaws also choose these places to live due to lack of imperial control.
I hope to have a full world map by the end of the day which will be huge!
I expect it would be given how big of a project it has become
