    This is a world I doodled up when I was 12, and had just come back from a school trip to Norfolk Island, 5 km south of Norfolk island is a barren island called Phillip Island (named after Australia's first Governor, and leader of the First Fleet that started the prison colony at Sydney - yes, you were right, Aussies are all criminally inclined :D ). The map of PhillipIsland intrigued me, and I designed a continent based on it. (the actual island is only 2x2 km). Then the world making began, with history, theology and a book based on final sacrifice and redemption. More of that in a later post. This has stayed with me, and influenced mu present world of Myirandios, with many of the same Gods, Anyway, here is the map I drew as a kid, then years later drew it in CC2 Pro, and now I will update it nito CC3+ probably 13th Age style. Early advice desired.

    Obviously the names and symbols need to be larger - I am aware of that. also, more terrain.

    I remember I used a stanley knife to cut the thick cardboard the map was mounted on (done on graph paper as you can see), and it cut into the carpet below - boy, was Mum wild with me. I still remember the thrashing she gave me with a stck cut from the plum tree in our backyard. But those were the days when that sort of thing was acceptable - parents really did believe in the adage "Spare the rod and spoil the child'. But memories stick. :)

    Just as a reference of Interest, here is the Google Earth pic of Phillip Island, just 5 km south of Norfolk Island.

    How sad is it that the satellite photo looks fake to me?

    Here is the old map redone, so far, in 13th Age style, with a few And Here There be Monsters style thrown in. Rivers, Forests, roads, swamps and cliffs to come, plus more detail in the mountains. Criticisma please.

    13th Age style is so cool, and it suits this map nicely. That's some crazy detail in the islands to the north! The beveled land in this style really makes those pop.
