The Hyborian Age by Sapiento The Hyborian Age by Sapiento
My new version of the Hyborian age, much better designed and much more information than the old one. For the location of nations and places I used mainly, but not only, the Hyborian age maps of Vincent N. Darlage, who was so kind to give me permission.

You can download a larger version.

This will be my go-to map of the Hyborian world. Excellent work!

One slight quibble, though... At the point where the Styx flows into the Western Ocean there should be the Stygian city of Khemi (at least there is in "Queen of the Black Coast"). Otherwise there this is the most accurate map I've seen.

Thank you!

Absolutely love this. Thanks so much for sharing it (esp. as a giant image file!)

One minor quibble: BRYTHUNIA is spelled "BRYTHINIA" on the map.

Ooooh, I like this. I've been a fan of Howard's Hyborian age for years, and this is a great rendition. And there's a hi-res version available! You're my hero.

A lot of this is in the wrong area, and at the wrong proportion based on Howard's own maps.

 Well, Howard traced over a map from an atlas to make his maps. So you have to take into consideration what projection he was using to make them.

I thought Stygia was a jungle swamp like place, not a desert. I could be wrong though, but I'm pretty sure that I'm correct... dunno... hum.

If you are not aware with Robert E. Howard's Conan stories you should read the Wikipedia entry. Essentially you are right.

Great Map. BTW Monolith is coming out with a huge miniatures game based on the Conan world. Their kickstarter campaign ended up with the highest backing of any game so far. In case you didn't know.
