Fantasy Cartography, Part 2

Fantasy cartography is like playing SimCity; first you create and then you take an almost gleeful joy in the destruction before rebuilding from the ashes.

Fantasy Cartography for Writers (part 1)

Fantasy cartography isn’t new, of course, from Lord of the Rings to Throne of the Crescent Moon, maps help readers to connect with the universe, to make unfamiliar locales a little more familiar. It’s always fun when there’s a heroic journey involved, be it a quest to dump a shiny bracelet in fiery nastiness or running from doom.
