  • Quick question   17 weeks 4 days ago

    Hi again, my original question at the top of the thread seems to have been diverted! It's great to have some detail on the regional maps in the queue and I look forward to getting my grubby mitts on them, but is there anything more detailed in the pipeline - kingdom or city modules and maps, atlas squares etc?

    The upcoming maps (Hepekeria, Azeryan Peninsula) are at the regional scale - the same as Karejia, Thonia, etc.. Each module would consist of a map in that style plus a gazetteer/map index. The gazetteer won't be as detailed as Karejia's, but it will have more than the map index provided for Santhrada. There may be some additional text, as well.

    There are two large-scale maps in inventory awaiting completion - Central Lythia and Kamerand. There are regional-scale maps in various stages of completion for every part of Venarive except Trierzon and Ivinia. Trierzon and Palithane are being mapped in the deluxe style seen in Shorkyne and Harn, while Ivinia is being left alone. And there are regional-scale maps in inventory for several archipelagos on the other side of the world - in time, we expect to map every inch of land on Kethira. But don't get too excited - it will take years to get through all of it.

    Not surprised that the artwork is "the" bottleneck, people don't realise how much time and effort these things take. Nearly as bad as a writer with a blank page and just staring at it. Ain't going to get done without some effort.

    In regards to Hepekeria, Quarphor, and the Azeryan Peninsula regional maps: Are these like Santhrada with a large number of regional squares?

    ie. Hepekeria: KLUA, MNMA, FLNA, and ELNS as one. Azeryan Peninsula both AZNN and AZNS. Quarphor as a standalone regional covering QPHR. Or are these each as a separate square by themselves?

    RKSY, GTHM, and UMLR seems to have fairly open area and little in relation to settlements, just as QPHR, so would be nice to see these all in one go too.

    Or are these all planned like Karejia with expanded details as well?

    Just trying to get my head in the teams roadmap and see what you all see.

    If regional maps are what you are after, then you will be happy to know that there are a number in the pipeline. In the KP publishing queue, the bottleneck is almost always the artwork. (Editing and city/detail maps are also time sinks.) This means that there is a backlog of regional maps in inventory. The unofficial plan is to release some of these regional maps with just a gazetteer (similar to but somewhat more detailed than the map index already released for Santhrada) and just a modicum of text content. Hepekeria, Quarphor, and the Azeryan Peninsula are first in line for this treatment. There probably won't be another full module like Karejia until Santhrada is complete - that module will keep the artists busy for quite a while.

    I'd still like to see more Region Maps honestly, just like Venârivè Almanac Map: Quarphor one.

    Such as the missing regions;

    Easiest: EDWN the gulf of Edêr (Edêrwyn), FLNS the sea south of Falânia, ITKE the Sea of Ítikîr, west of Ivínia ~ is all sea?. These have very little land/islands and would require little information.

    Medium: KLUA Kôrlúa and northwestern Hèpekéria, MNMA Menêma and northeast Hèpekéria are both like Karéjia (KRJA) with partial land and a lot of water, hence is Býria (BYRI)

    Harder ones: All the ones not listed above on the NW Lythia map.

    Personally I'm hoping for TRZN the region of Tríerzòn first up, mainly for the work I'm creating atm, it's also mostly done via Shôrkýnè & Emélrenè maps anyways. Fleshing out more around Lédenheim such as Huriséa & "Géltheim especially" to flesh out the history of the flow west of refugees that I'm working on. A bonuis would also include Ánvâl as it entails a ton of historic migrations. Others would be UMLR, RKSY, and completing the largest kingdom areas around GTHM, AZNN and AZNS. The last two are probably an enormous undertaking considering the sheer scale and history of Ázeryàn Empire, yet what I'm trying to do covers this stretch from Ûmélria to Tríerzòn and all that includes the regions in between.

    This especially makes it hard when you have an idea and want to work on it, but need "more" to be done :P

    Probably, from a map stand point, ELNS the Elánas and southeast Hèpekéria area is quite an interesting region. With it's unique landforms and dotted with water features.

    Once all the regional maps are done, then it's just a matter of time to be able to zoom into. As a beginner in these matters, it's hard to imagine these areas with the few details we have, yet the previously released one (BYRI, THNA, QPHR and the newest KRJA) it's easier to get an understanding and appreciation for the amount of work and uncovering the splendour within them as each gets made and released.

    Then the more detailed Map Squares would be a lot easier (in some ways ;) ) to create.

    I spotted the new item on the front page, and I couldn't post the link quickly enough to the Facebook groups Masters of Harn and Friends of Harn.

    Not to mention securing my own copy pdq.

    Exciting. Looking forward to it. But patient. I am so grateful for the time and effort going into the stuff. It is really amazing!

    There is one major pub that is in the final editing phase. It could be next week, it could be next month . . . it depends on the personal schedules of the volunteers putting the final touches on it.

  • Tríerzòn   27 weeks 6 days ago

    Just noticed that estates or manors are known as "Nalrôrdan" according to Page 122 of Venârivè.

    However the Tables on page 122 have the spelling as Nalrôrdam.

    Have searched all sources and the Trierzi manor, Nalrôrd is the closest I can find reference to. Would just like some confirmation if this is an error on the Tables only?

    While we're here, has anyone got a list of the names for each of the known eight royal districts (Indârd) and their counties (Málnîrdan)?

    Or are these the ones listed as Duchies (Telkôrdan) on P188?

  • Sánthrada - Eastern Lýthia Map and Index   29 weeks 5 days ago

    There are two major projects that could get released by the EOY. I doubt that both would make it by that deadline, but there is a very good chance at least one will.

  • Sánthrada - Eastern Lýthia Map and Index   30 weeks 3 days ago

    Are there any new projects (small or large) that we can expect to see this year or are they all scheduled for next year?

    I'am loving all the work you've all done so far (map/index and the stuff you published on premium content) on Santhrada I'am Yeager to acquire it fulfilled alas all your work is very well done some good others excellent.

    Thanks

  • Sánthrada - Eastern Lýthia Map and Index   31 weeks 4 days ago

    Just kidding. In the full publication, Molnasya is organized differently. It isn't an organized polity (or group of related realms) like the other entries, and the marked locations aren't ordinary towns or markets. The Index follows the formats used in the main publication and inherited the difference in formatting. The reasons will be more apparent when you see the main product.
