Atlas Elyden Key by vorropohaiah Atlas Elyden Key by vorropohaiah
Here’s the key to the atlas maps I’m working on. It’s not final, though it’s a polished version of what I’ve been using when working on  my maps so thought I’d post it here, hopefully making things easier for those of you who are following my work (thanks!).

It’s pretty-much self-explanatory, detailing things like elevation, hydrography, geography, settlement sizes and typography, as well as the resource and industry symbols I’ve been using so far.  

I’d like your opinions on the key in general, and the resource and industry symbols in particular - are they intuitive-enough? Can you make out what they’re meant to represent without having to look at the key? Are there any in particular that don’t make sense? Keep in mind some of them represent fantastical animals that aren’t immediately recognizable (like indriks and mantras).

Thanks for your time.

Note: the empty space in the bottom right is reserved for more resource symbols as I come up with them as well as details pertinent to city-scale maps once I get round to making them.

Hi there, could you point me at places that are Dog Breeding settlements?

that's an oddly specific question!

At the top of my head there's one on map #11 (lyridia) in the settlement of Lyrca (grid D2) - its a famed breeder of guard dogs that are used across the Inner Sea.

There's a couple others but I can;t remember then at the top of my head.

I love dogs. And love how our dogs emerged (similar to humans; at random places (middle east/asia/north africa); and based on environment; then 'bred' for appearance), so when I saw you included it I was really interested - Dogs AND MAPS... that's two awesome things!

:) I have two of my own and most of the dog-related things I;ve included in the world were inspired by them :)

I was gonna use it for my own mapping projects, if that's okay with you.

thanks, though there really isn't very much to this one - its just some vectors and words :)

Yeah but actually being able to make the vectors look crisp and just down right amazing must take time

I'm glad you think that as I was worried they might be a bit blurred :)
