A couple years ago I got the itch to make a fantasy world while playing Skyrim and learning about it's lore, but I never published any of the art I did for it. Mostly due to the fact that I was considering asking people to join in and develop a part of the world but I never got around to fully realizing it. I would hate to see all the stuff I developed for this project to go to waste so I am somewhat reviving it.
The best place to start is to show you the world map, which I was able to make with some help with
who suggested that I used a method of making splotches and using those for the continents. He even provided me with one such image with I edited to make the world make.
After which, as you can see, I decided where the mountain ranges and major rivers would be, as well as some of the country boarders and the ocean currents. Also on the North Western content I drew some massive canyons/fractures on the surface that are notable as well.
As for the countries I have only developed one of them, due to the initial concept behind this idea where the each person would handle a different continent and from there we would work together in an almost ARPG (Art RPG) kind of fashion. The country I designed and planned to use as the example was Yalmia and the Yalman Empire.
A country set up in the mountainous region and one of the furthest east countries in the world (region 7 on the map). It's landscape is similar to the mountainous regions of South America. The architecture of the kingdom that lives there is similar to the Mayan, Aztec and Incan architecture. And now you are probably wondering on who lives in this country. Well these are the people that do:
3 races specifically native to the region. The Yalman, with their 3 sub species, the Cotton Puff, and the Pelroo (picture says pelf, but that was before I settled on a name). Elf Yalman living in the eye mountains, Desert Yalman live in some of the arid valleys, and the standard Yalmans live almost everywhere else. The Cotton Puff live anywhere the Yalman are, relying on them for protection. The Pelroo live on the South coasts where there is cold water that was brought from currents.
That is all I will share for now, if there is enough interest in this I will share some more about this world.
Thank you all for reading.
