It’s on to the Southern half of the map today! This one was made later and is at certain points less detailed than the Northern half and it is probably the part of the Realm where I’ll have to create the most from scratch. Keep in mind that a lot of the names (especially of the islands) are either placeholder names or not there at all. And as always, thoughts, feedback and other comments are more than welcome! Now, let’s get to it!
Islands of the Realm
4. Cat People Archipelago
This archipelago is home to the Realm’s feline species, with the exception of the sabre-tooth tigers of the Western Island. The four larger island hold the four sapient cat peoples, each of which is descended from one of the great cat species. The enigmatic Pantheras live on the mostly forested island in the North. The islands to the West and South are inhabited by the Tigri and Liones respectively, the largest of the cat peoples. On the easternmost large island the Jaguaran, the most warlike of the four, can be found. The smaller islands are the territory of what are commonly known as the lesser cat people, wild non-sapient cats of several kinds, both small and great.
5. The Colonies of Men
These three islands are the most sparsely populated islands of the Realm. It is here where Men from the Northern islands travelled to in search of a new life and eventually settled. The island to the West was the first to be colonized. It is the unofficial capital of the colonies, containing most of the colonial population, as well as havens on both the Northern and Southern coast and the main military training camps, North-East of the Southern haven. The South-Eastern island serves mostly as a massive military encampment and is the frontline of the operations against the Dark Elves encroaching from the East. Troops are constantly ferried in across a supply line from the West. A wall of watchtowers, stretching from the South-Western to North-Eastern coast of the island, has been erected to better defend against the frontline of the Dark Elf forces. Finally, the North-Eastern island was the last of the three islands to be colonized. Because it is still under construction its population is fairly small and it holds very little of note.
6. Dark Elf Origin
As its name implies, this island is the land where the Dark Elves originated. It is a veritable fortress, with the entire coastline covered by high walls and no less than five coastal forts. The main entrance to the island is the haven on the North-West coast. It is from here that the Dark Elf troop supply lines begin and armies are sent to the island across the sea to the North-West, where their front against the Men of the Colonies lies. In the centre of the island lies the stronghold and capital of the Dark Elves. In the North-East lies the temple district and slightly to the South from there the barracks and main military training ground can be found. The majority of the population lives in villages in South-Western region.
