A World Map of our RPG and of of our Larp Characters Tairica. It's only a small part of the Planet, but the only known part.
The known world is is mainly the ocean you can see on the map and the seven achipelagos.
At the Center Nuzicum  ( nimbayo.deviantart.com/art/The…)
Corainte at the Top, ( nimbayo.deviantart.com/art/The… )
then clockwise Viyinis, Arciris, Penimbu, Ros and Sabaira. The whole circle has a diameter of about 5500 km.
The dreamcatcher-like lines represent the connection and is a symbol for the world in general.

The symbols in the corners are the four Elements (circlewise beginning in the top-left corner) Earth/Stone, Fire, Wind/Air, Water
The three circles at the edge stand for the three energys of the "Fluss des Seins" (Stream of Being/Existence) Light, Life and Shadow with the three connected astronomical bodys: The Sun (yellow circle) for light, the small Moon called "Neda" (green circle) for life, and the stationary moon (the violett shape at the bottom) standing for shadow.
The symbols in the sqares stand for the directions, North, North-East... for there's a word for all of them in the Tairican language Mareyam.

You can also see the Equator, the dotted yellow curve between Sun and Neda, and the northern tropic circle, the violett dotted line between east and west.

Hey, thanks for your comment and for your question. I really appreciate that.

Very cool way of displaying the world. I love seeing unique approaches.

Thank you Bjorn! I totally agree with you. You see so many tolkienesque maps, so i wanted to try something slightly different.

After a big while, a new deviation. Keep the stream flowing!
