Project Realm. The Islands of the Realm, Part 3

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.


Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
