I Find that looking at a map at the start of a fantasy story is always really interesting because it gives you a better idea of the world and lets you get a better immersion. So here is is!
I drew it myself (obviously) but I always thought I was pretty ok at maps, I’ve made tonnes of them from a young age and really like the idea of creating them. It’s funny because I remember when I was a young kid people would ask me to draw an outline of a map for them to fill in because they specifically liked the way I drew it. I don’t think I’m as good now but oh well, I like it.
To give you a better idea of the location of the characters right now Withwood village is to the left of the mountains fairly close to the coast in Sevren. It’s near too the huge mountain in the middle as well.
I have a closer picture for a more zoomed in location:
Withwood village is to the left of the forest and down a bit, almost in line with the left most river. The forest is mentioned in the book and the unvisited and unmentioned town of Canden is near the road to left of the mountain range by the top pair of mountains nearest to both the coast and the forest. Why didn’t I add labels? I’ve never really needed them to be honest. I didn’t even name a lot of the places I already have names for in my story! I don’t want to overwhelm people too much, it’s a short story so I don’t want to clutter it with politics outside of the main story which is needed.
Do I have more maps for my story? Yes I do, including a remote island that we never visit at all. But I kind of want to leave the rest to your imaginations.
