Default The Map

I thought I'd share the work-in-progress map for my fantasy world.

Available here. Map created in Wonderdraft.

I am terrible at coming up with names, so if anyone would like to help replace the rather generic placeholders, I wouldn't be insulted. The only things I'm fairly decided on is that the northernmost of the Nine Kingdoms is Norwold and the northern branch of the mountain range is commonly called The Spine of the Dragon.

I love coming up with names! What feel are you going for? Do you want them in plain English or some other language?

I've been looking for a good generator for inspiration, but most of them I have found produce either unpronounceable strings of random letters or very cliche sounding Adjectivenoun names.

The Nine Kingdoms have a vague Anglo-Saxon feel in my mind. The old empire is the rump of a once much larger empire with a distinctly Roman tone.

Burning Island - Fyrenholm ("On-fire island")
Dark Lands - Deorcrice ("dark realm")
Golden Isle - Gyldenholm ("golden island")
Nomad Lands - Graesmolde ("the greensward")
Nine Kingdoms - Nigonrice ("nine realms")
Old Imperial Land - Aergenrice ("Realm of old")

Please don't show this to someone who actually knows Old English, because I probably mangled the grammar all to hell and back. :o)

I'd try to fit something like Nesoddtangen in there. The name is a triple tautology , all the words there mean cape (as in the geological feature), so it translates to The Cape Cape Cape
