The Continent of Tellure by nvexio The Continent of Tellure by nvexio
The Continent of Tellure
In the third year of the Lorn empire, during a time of conquest into the nation Chersone.

North of Chersone, the tri-island nation of Ternion has fallen to Lorn . . .

Further to the north, Verdar tests its borders with The Wealdom, and
the two nations ever edge closer to war . . .

Off the coast of the Eilhjorind Flats, a fleet of Marrene ships have
landed . . .

South, Paren moves to aid Chersone against Lorn invasion. From
Greenhorn's Landing, a detachment of Lorn infantry travels to
Camberend . . .

In the Triune Sea, virulent powers coalesce, powers which once
reshaped the very world . . .

And in Latch, two men share a drink in a disreputable bar.


I've been hesitant to submit this. Tellure has become an obsession of mine, and I'm pretty shy about it.

The first version of the map only contained lands directly surrounding the Triune Sea, but as my outline grew and grew, so did my need for more space.

I posted this map back in September, but was unhappy with it enough to take it down and make some major revisions. In the past week I've done nothing but tinker with it, making only minor changes here and there, which tells me I'm done and only nitpicking at this point.

I really hope this gets some notice. I'm desperate for feedback, to hear of any changes necessary (like unrealistic geology, since there are probably a ton).

Anywho, to the few of you who happen upon this, I hope you enjoy it. Making it was fantastically fun!

What a beautiful looking place! You obviously put a lot of thought in to this. Though I have to say, it looks quite similar to britain...

Nice work! Overall I really like the look and colors of this map. I love the color and style of the ocean! The place names are also interesting and varied, suggesting underlying stories and histories. My only real criticism is really more of a wish: I'd like to see more features in large empty regions of Lorn and Paren.

Wonderful. I love the text that goes with it. Is this part of a larger project?

It is indeed!

I've nothing more than a rough outline, but it's for a story I'm trying (and failing miserably) to write.

As far as maps go, there's a second continent I hope to upload in the next few weeks.

I could help with the writing. I'm very good with words, and also with arc planning.
