Map of Midralon

I was asked to post the full map of Midralon, so here it is in its entirety. This is the same map as shown in the book. Events in book two may cause some changes to it (that's the only hint I can give about book two)!

I created this map using Campaign Cartographer 3 a nice piece of software for creating any kind of map you can think up. There are a couple things I'd like to change about the map if I get time. If you click on the link for CC3 above you'll see lots of example maps that are done in color. I would like to make a color version of my map, but out of necessity it is black & white for printing purposes. Also, I used the generic icons that came with the software to mark the cities. I'd like to design my own instead, but like I said, that is if I find time in between doing all the other stuff involved with the second book.

I don't know about you, but whenever I read a book that has a map in it, I like to follow the journey of the main characters on the map. I had originally sketched a map on a yellow notepad to help me keep track of where the characters were in the story as I wrote it, but now I have this nicer one to make it easier on me. Look for more of the land to show up in book two and the others that follow.
