Mapping it out

The process is incredible. As someone watching from the sidelines, I am in complete awe of Archmage and how his mind can imagine, detail, and create this new world, Nocturion.

In March, I introduced you to the concept of Nocturion. Then, all I knew was that it was a world that resembled our own, as it was during the Middle Ages, but with a darker twist. As it turns out, there is so much more to discover.

Our timeline begins when Varian Auxentius dissolves the Republic and proclaims the universal Evergreen Empire. But, as you many have guessed, the story, Nocturion's lore, started well before. It was 640 years before that the City of Evergreen was first settled. This city lies at a naturally defensible position in the Grasslands of western Valkuria, the main continent of Nocturion.

This map is still in it's infancy, but it gives some structure to the story of this dark new world.

Are you intrigued? Because I have more to tell... much more.
