Well, I know I'm stretching, but the marking of Cil-Aujas is perhaps only the entrance? It could run through far into the mountain...

I almost suggested that but it seemed to ridiculous :P. The Nonmen seemed to travel down rather than outward, but I guess its possible. Who knows what can be accomplished with 10,000 years of stubbornness and boredom?
One of the other conditions of possibility.

By the way, anyone else think that the map looks like a dragon's head?

I believe this is the map you wanted, Som.


When we recorded on Thursday I discovered that I didn't bring all my books north with me. But I found TJE and WLW at a used bookstore and took a picture for reference (no fucking 10p deals for me, SR :P).

That's the one, Madness. Thank you!  I tried the same thing this weekend, but my shitty Half-price Books and library didn't have them.  Then again, maybe that's a good thing, meaning that people are keeping them and checking them out from the library.  Just shitty for me, then, I guess.   :)

But now... fuck.  Why is Sakarpus so far from where it was shown in PON?  Inconsistencies I can deal with, overall, but that's just blatantly in another shitting place altogether.  sigh...
No whistling on the slog!

Anyone able to tell me what this says (circled)?  This is from the map in WLW.  I can make out everything else but that...  Thanks in advance!

That's the mnnjneknknmnmmmnnmnm, a famous river in Aorsi.  That river is so swift, that in the old days you could kill a sranc, stuff it with letters, and it would be in Dagliash in winks and a nod.  You wouldn't want to try that now cause the sranc have been breeding with the fish.  The Great Ordeal's first aquatic challenge...

Prompted by Wilshire's comment in Royce's Maps topic, here's an Earwa re-draw I've been working on for a while.  I used the color map from Scott's website as a base, then tried to add the detail from his official maps in the books.  All the broad details should be correct according to published maps.  I then went through the Encyclopedic Glossary from TTT to try to fill in the other details like Palatinates and regions, towns, oases, etc.  As should be obvious, some placements of details may be wrong, but I've given my best guesses as to their positions based on descriptions given in the text.  If anyone is interested, I'd be open to corrections based on textual evidence of misplaced details.  Anyway, hope you enjoy!

Awesome, Somnambulist. This is something I'd been hoping for for a long time.

Do you have a higher resolution of it? Because I can't make it out the small text and the legend. Nevermind.

That's awesome. Thanks Somna.

For those who want a bigger version, look to the right and click download. It'll bring up a new browser window that is 4650x3758 (pixels).

EDIT
I'm tempted to print this out on like a 34'' x 44'' plot and hang it in my office.

Right, should have mentioned that, thanks Wilshire.

Som, That is fucking sweet. I have wanted to see a decent map for ages, feels like google earth compared to the hardcopy versions in the texts!

Really nice work!
