This is an expansion of an earlier commission
, depicting the Land of the Damned from the Palladium Fantasy RPG.
This cursed land was the seat of power for the Old Ones before their downfall, and has imprisoned their minions ever since. The Alliance of Light overthrew those ancient horrors and raised many barriers to hold in the damned, including the Northern Mountains, the highest peaks in the Palladium world. Each region within this land embodies and exemplifies its own pathway to damnation: the denial of death, the corruption of virtue, the devastation of war, the oppression of tyranny, and the emptiness of regret. In game terms, this region is the ultimate challenge for adventure groups; the world's greatest heroes go here and die.
You may notice that two of the regions, The Bleakness and Broken Horn, lack the detail of the southern regions. The book describing these regions has not yet been published. The markers inside are based on what I can glean from the other books. The rest of the map is as canon-accurate as I can make it.
As with most of my maps, I created this with some variations on some Arsheesh
tutorials, including the Eriond technique, his icon mini-tutorial, his curved label tutorial, and his ornate frame tutorial. The icons are my own creation, although the runes come from the Palladium Fantasy RPG.

(edit: I added in woods, another small custom icon, and a backlight effect for the title)
