[KF's Mystara] Farend Campaign Expansion

An idea based on these threads: Brun, Davania, Skothar, and ??? | The Far End Ocean Conundrum

Should the landmasses be bigger?

I've enlarged the continents and added more islands.

Nice maps!
These maps just looks like it once had a big volcanic eruption causing a caldera (magma chamber collapse) and creating this inner sea and with extra added depth in the center. The mountains looks really a bit like the rim of craters.
You have two yellow areas - deserts? Any story behind that, since one is the west and another in the east?
With prevailing winds one side could be more more wet than the other, since it could have condensed most of the water vapour going over the mountains from one side leaving much less for the other side.
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,/But I have promises to keep,/And miles to go before I sleep,

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—/I took the one less traveled by,/And that has made all the difference.

Well, I've changed the map somewhat since the last posted map. Here is an updated view of Davusia.

I had a friend on Facebook tell me that the southeastern desert wasn't very realistic, so I decided to change it what you see here. Instead, I added a different desert on the northern side of Davusia's large mountain range. That entire region that divides the two continents will be very dry; the rest of the land, on both sides, will be scrubland for the most part.

I've yet to add rivers to the rest of the world, so I'm not ready to unveil a new version of the world map, yet. :)

The area between the two mountain ranges could easily be a desert (if the wind comes from either northwest or southeast) since you would get a "death valley" effect. The rain will precipitate and fall on the mountains and flow down from there, but the heated air behind the mountains will be dry and warm.
Your river flow seem to indicate a south-eastern to eastern winds with rain falling as the wind climb the mountains.

The river flow isn't intentional. When it comes to rivers, I simply try to make sure the flow looks right. I don't think about wind patterns or the like.

The .jpg links no longer are displaying the maps that they should.

I know. I haven't gotten around to fixing them yet. The problem is that any maps you link from Facebook eventually stop working. It's annoying.

I've started to enclose any IMG tag that points to an image on Facebook inside a URL tag that points to the actual page the image is on.

Then, if/when Facebook moves the image, I can grab the URL, go straight back to the image page and then get the new URL for the picture. :idea:
