Acherusis World Map by JGellert Acherusis World Map by JGellert
The World Map for my Acherusis Campaign Setting.

Work is (always) in progress. Some labels are missing, particularly on mountains and forests. I'd like to hear comments on the general style...

Photoshop CS4, with these brushes [link]

So, in your re-imagining of Europa, where do the Orcs live, and who are the halflings?

The orcs are marked on the map as the Khaganate, which stretches quite far beyond the edge, into the unknown world, as you would expect for the mongol fantasy counterpart culture.
The halflings haven't carved any realm for themselves; they follow the expansion of humans closely, but mostly live only around the places where men won't settle.

I would assume that Ceriel and Erdwen are Elvish. Where are your dwarves?

These two, and most of Breneth, are largely pagan human kingdoms whose language, religion and customs have been influenced by the elves. The actual elves live only in the forests and they are treated as monsters or ghosts.

The dwarves live almost anywhere where mountains are marked, and in major human cities. Their lands are considered part of human kingdoms.

I love this. I honestly looked at it at first and clicked on it for the purpose of berating someone for relabelling a map of Europe. Once I enlarged it, though, I started to see the details and subtle differences, and now the similarities between it and the actual map only enhance the fantasy element. The not-what-it-seems-at-first effect is really what makes this. Fantastic and beautiful work!

This is for a RPG focused on intrigue, so the politics and interaction of the various people are more important than (and also tied to) the geography. I am happy to hear that you gave attention to detail... working on this has not been easy. Thank you!

I like the style but I would make it less dark (not more saturated) and mix in some tans and greens into the land :D Funny how no matter what you make it it always has some resemblance to the real world.

I thought about adding color and texture on the land but I never seem to get it quite right... Perhaps after enough trial and error it will work

This map works rather well, the simple colours do not overcomplicate but there is enough detail to make it feel authentic.

Well done!

Thank you! I'm still adding more labels, but naming mountains/forests is, to my surprise, harder than cities/nations.

The unknown world sounds like the unknown lands of Gothic III xD
Really nice map, love the style.
Europe like?

Europa indeed! Thank you. :) I don't know about Gothic, the franchise is one of the (few, I hope?) RPGs that have eluded me!

I really recommend you the Gothic saga, especially the I and II
