This is a map I have been working in cooperation with Marthen on the Scrolls of Lore Forum. The map was done for his project called The Grand Encyclopedia of the Great Dark Beyond, where various bits and pieces of Warcraft lore are puzzled together into a consistent whole. This map of the Eastern Kingdoms is thus as "loristically" correct as you can get. It is set before the First War and as the title implies, I am going to make more maps in the series of "Atlas of Azeroth and Draenor", which is accompanying Encyclopedia.

For more information visit the project's thread. For a lore centered discussion of these maps, please use this thread.

This looks gorgeous. Would it be okay if I got this printed out into a poster? I'd love this on my office wall!

Gosh, this is amazing; one question, though. Is that where Kul Tiras is meant to be? I don't know why I always thought it's more north of Tirisfal...

Well im afraid that must be a misunderstanding, as I am fairly certain that Kul Tiras should be between Khaz Modan and Lordaeron.

Don't get me wrong, between the two of us there's no doubt in my mind you're the one who's right ^^ I'm just a little surprised, not sure why I thought it was elsewhere. Been roleplaying for ages assuming it was north of Tirisfal for some reason, haha! XD

Ahhh Kuusinen this is so beautiful, and omg with the Index you even had to remember/ look up again where everything is,
surely time consuming but totally worth it!!!

Yes that was in fact very time consuming. Especially regarding exporting the table from Excel into Inkscape. I tried different methods and ended up with having to export the Excel file as .pdf, then turning the .pdf into a .png in a browser app and then editing the .png file in Paint, before copying them piece by piece into inkscape. So if anyone sees a typo or other mistake in the index... DONT TELL ME! :D

AHAHAHAH oh god that sounds so annoying, like you need a whole evening only to copy a damned
list over to the main picture XD But that´s why I admire you, every little element is so much work
you´re just great ;)

lovely map!

only issue i have is what happens if an area of desert is in a lowland region - as the desert colour takes precedence how do you know its a lowland?

You are right, the difference of elevation can be difficult to spot in the coloured areas like deserts, swamps and woodlands. However, if you look closely you should be able to see the outlines of it, but I agree it could have been better visible.
