Maps

Post by Angel Tarragon » Wed Feb 19, 2014 5:53 am

Knightfall made me a map based off of the Ultima Pangea map in my Geography thread. I've been piddling around with it, adding in more inland sources of water. As expansive as Sarûnia, the landmass needs more sources of water. There's not a lot of room left for deserts, so I'm not sure how they will fit in. With as much water is on the surface, and the climate areas they lie in, you can surmise that this world is hot and steamy. Plenty of steaming jungles. ;)

Here's my world overview map with climate zones. I imagine there to be a huge [dormant?] volcano in the North Polar region, perhaps extending far enough down into the depths of the planet.

You could put your deserts along the Warm Temperature bands, the desert could encroach on Boreal forests.
There would also be ice deserts in the Tundra.

Most of the heavily populated human cities would be in your warm temperature zone.
A world this hot would have an incredible amount of rain, storms and hurricanes.

I have been toying with idea of making Sarûnia hollow. I think to make that work the world would need pillars to keep the massive planet from crushing in on itself. Maybe dead center there is a massive construct that maintains the needs of the world; this construct could be something that functions by/on a clockwork mechanism and provides heat and scheduled intervals of light and darkness to the hollowside.
