The World of the Wilderlands
I posted this on the Necromancer boards, in response to the question of "What is beyond the region of the Wilderlands?"
One of the things that Bob and I are working on is a complete map of the continent upon which are found the Wilderlands. The entire continent consists of 15 maps the size of the Wilderlands... that's 270 maps the size of a single campaign map!
To the north of the Wilderlands is the Great Glacier, and further lands of the Avalonians.
To the east is Karak... Karak actually extends to two maps the size of the entire Wilderlands! Yes, 36 campaign maps worth of Karak. Of course, not all of it is actually the Kingdom of Karak, but much of it is. It truly is a vast state.
To the west are the Giant Lands, extending, like Karak to the east, two maps to the west. Much of the map immediately to the west of the Wilderlands is a continuation of the Endless Desert, while the great Giant Kingdoms are further to the west.
To the south and southwest are the great Demon Empires, which altogether take up three of the large maps.
Northwest, northeast, and southeast are lands even more mysterious, and virtually unknown to the peoples of the Wilderlands.
The plan will be to release each section the size of the Wilderlands as its own product. Not sure yet about the level of detail; I'm favoring each product be two maps at 15-mile hexes (i.e., each map nine standard campaign maps), with as much detail as we can squeeze in, perhaps a 128-page book. Making and printing 18 maps for each is just not in the realm of possibility, financially.
When? Probably the first one in 2008, maybe sooner if we're lucky. Possibly Karak, with four maps (two back-to-back) and a 256-page book. Got a lot of other stuff to get out the doors, first...
