    Awesome work. Do a little bit of map building myself as a D&D Dungeon Master. Never anything quite this good and most never make it past pen and paper, but i can definitly respect the work put into this.

    Perhaps “Eye to(or of) the North” – i.e. similar to a the “eye” of a sewing needle

      Hi Alan. Which map element/location are you suggesting should be named “Eye of the North”?

        The pass just to the Northeast of Lake Baeron (between the Northern Heights and the Angoran Mountains) leading into the Frozen North.

          Hey Alan. I was going back through my cartography page and realized I never received your reply, which is why I hadn’t responded. – Sorry about that. (Eye of the North) good name! Might see that show up in some later books. I do have an enormous wall and gate to add to it. It will be know as the “Gates of Bel’Taag.” But the pass hasn’t been named, so “Eye of the North” might be it. 🙂

    Your choices for the mountain and island names were great. I can proofread, but my imagination has no independent creativity of it’s own. There are TV shows, movies, and books that my imagination will pull me into the story. Like The White Tower, totally immersed.

      Many authors say that coming up with names is more difficult than coming up with the story. I can only hope that The Aldoran Chronicles continues to keep you pulled in 🙂

    Is there any way to present the map so that we can zoom in to see the details? That would be freaking awesome!

    Hey Janalyn! Sorry for the late response. I replied a couple days ago using my cell phone, but it didn’t seem to post. I hand drew the basic elements first and then built the rest using Photoshop computer software. Its a lot of work, but lots of fun! If you have any questions concerning map-making let me know. Love to help my fellow fantasy authors!

      Actually, I built it myself. I love designing and creating interesting things. As my novel series progresses, I continually add on to it 🙂

      Thanks for the kind words!
