    There’s a lot of great stuff here, but for some reason the thing that completely broke me is having “Desert Island”, a small isle with nothing but sand and a single palm tree, in the middle of lush, green islands.

    I’m sure that, if a river was drawn into this map, it would be a ten-headed abomination originating from nothing, going uphill through the mountains, and connecting one side of the ocean to the other.

    (Also “Nopon” being an almost 1:1 transposition of Japan, but “Retro Tokyo” is in the wrong place lmao)

      Don’t Japanese speakers call Japan something closer to Nippon? So it’s even closer than that.

      Also, as a LOTR weirdo, the thing that made me laugh was how the mountain range around Orienta is exactly the same as the mountains around Mordor right down to the location of the gates, just rotated slightly. And then right to the left there is Land of Evil-Doom, where the mountains SHOULD HAVE BEEN

      The Desert Island is where all the shipwrecked sailors get washed up. This is the result of all ocean currents in the Tepid and Warm seas eventually converging there. If you miss the exit you go right past into the Giant Whirlpool of Hydrodynamic Implausibly.

    As the son of a deceased blacksmith from Quainthamlet, a small settlement near Townsburg, I have taken my amateur hand-crafted sword and am on the way to Camenot to find my destiny; most likely reaching my limits many times and overcoming them (just) with the help of my trusty companions and the burning hope and power of friendship that lies within me.

    Or I’ll just die, because my sword is crap and I’m a noob.

    It’s a trap! This is just a fantasized map of Brazil! Run for your lives before OP drags us all to Rio!

    This looks like Eurasia if you nuked the ever living fuck out of the middle east.

    Edit: Honestly this just looks like a post nuclear earth where we just kept dropping more nukes.
