    I'd like to help with Locations, Districts/Kingdoms, and Geology, seeing as all of those subjects go somewhat hand-in-hand. I'll draw up a quick map with my current ideas for continents, districts/kingdoms, and important locations soon.

    I'll probably post similar things on all three threads, so if I post on multiple threads within a short time, you only need to read one of them (so save time).

    Before I sketch up a map, I have to ask... About how many continents would be ideal? I personally think 5 is a good number. Smaller islands or subcontinents can be added if needed. 2 of the main continents could be ice caps, one on Eda's North Pole and one on the South Pole. One of them could predominantly be covered by a desert, another by a jungle, and the third by a moderate grassland. I'm just looking for a little bit of reassurance before I rush ahead.

    Since I'm leaving for Boston later today, I just wanted to post what I have of the map now so you have something to work with. It's a pretty crude Photoshop job, I know, but I can spruce it up later. Note that the background color shouldn't be white, but the white within the circle should be.

    This is just the eastern hemisphere, I haven't worked on the western hemisphere yet. Once both sides are finished, I can divide them up into the various kingdoms and name everything. I'm planning on having six continents instead of the original five, one of which will be basically a dark wasteland surrounded by a sea of fire (or lava, if that makes more sense). The ice caps have small habitable regions on the coasts, but are otherwise covered with glaciers. These are mostly uninhabited, except for a few nomadic tribes. The continent on the left has a more arid environment, and the middle and southern parts are covered mostly desert. The continent on the right has a more temperate climate, with forests and grasslands and the like. The little island beside it shares this climate.

    I sincerely apologize for the long wait. :sweat: Between school finishing up and general laziness, I just now got around to finishing this up.

    The eastern hemisphere is largely the same; all I changed was the desert, and only slightly. The western hemisphere is new. Because you suggested something like a sea of fire, I gave you a sea of magma, which is surrounded by a ring of mountains (with a few holes) to keep the magma in and water out. The "holes" allow for trade ships to pass through, and a magical field prevents the water and magma from mixing. The continent inside the sea of magma is largely a volcanic wasteland, but some races make their homes here. The other continent has a fairly temperate climate, sporting several forests and fields.The ice caps are covered largely by glaciers, but the edges are habitable. The small islands by the ice caps are covered mostly by snow, while the edges are not.

    I can add more details is need be, but for now, is this suitable?
