Map of Persephoneia by ikarus-exe Map of Persephoneia by ikarus-exe
"Persephoneia is composed mostly of hilly terrain and high mountains, though highland plains can be found throughout the landscape. The soil on the plains is not particularly fertile, but the crops that do grow there are hardy and resistant to the kingdom's often unpredictable weather. The hills are often used as grazing ground where they are cleared, but much alpine forest still remains in the higher hills at the bases of the mountains and on the mountains themselves."


A map of the Holy Empire of Persephoneia for the RP group :iconpokepalace:

The map will be updated with new areas and labels as they are found/created. Enjoy!

Do you think you could put the Zephyr Village on the map? It's northeast of the Marshlands and between it and the Mountains. Sorry if you got this already :0

No problem! Um... I'm not quite sure where exactly you mean, but... Why don't you download the map, draw a dot where you want it, and then note it back to me? Then I'll know exactly where you want the village. :D

Ika! Sorry to bother again but Ato's net is on the fritz and we finally found Xanthi's origin's in Persy too. I was wondering if you could mark an area for us on your lovely, lovely map again? *forgot how you mapped Ghaent's birth home last time*

Sure thing! I love adding stuff to this map. XD What should I put, and where? Oh, you can also just... send me a screen of the map with a dot on it and a label or something. XD

Heya again Ika! Here's a photobucket [link] with the little cyan dot of the home for Ato's Xanthi. You can label it 'Chateau Barille' though we were wondering if you could put in parenthesis in the comments 'ancestral home of one Xanthi Evelyn' if it's not too much trouble. And I promise, any time you ask, I shall explain the convoluted story! :heart:

Again, many thanks!

(I really should locate your replies to past comments first before attending to this, but - all for Ato! xp)

Why place the castle there? Are the mountains encircling the area covered with defensive works? Is the lake area especially fertile? Do they have important mines that make importing lots of food feasible?
Reply
:iconikarus-exe:
ikarus-exe Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah! I see. Yes, the mountains surrounding the valley provide defense, and the only pass is walled off with a defensive wall and a fort. The lake area is indeed fertile, and the land outside the city walls is used for farming and agriculture that supports the city. The river flowing from the lake passes through a trading town and a port town lower down, and is used for commerce. There are no mines in those particular mountains though~

Persephoneia is a theocracy with a strong military. The world's religion is based there, with the "pope" figure being the main ruler of Persephoneia. The main cathedral, much like Saint Peter's Basilica, is also located there~

No pressure. If you don't like what you end up with, TK and I were discussing the possibility of my making an entire set for all of the kingdoms. That'd be quite the challenge though, as I'd need to get rough drafts from all the leaders anyway. XD

Hahah... You just gave me SEVERAL choices on where the von Todmorder estate is located! I say all the time that Ghaent's family is from a manor house estate in the 'eastern mountains' of Persephoneia, but now - HOW CAN YOU FORCE ME TO CHOOSE WHICH MOUNTAINS TO BE NEAR??? XDDDD Well, you may not yet have a drawing of Persy the capital, but you DO happen to have a map of the REGION! Lovely work you've done here! *:heart:s it all*

Thank you~ But yes! Go ahead and choose where you'd like it, and let me know so I can add it to the map. XD I can even put... more mountains in that blank spot in the east. lol I pretty much just left some space open so we could add things if anyone wanted something in particular.

Oh awesome. XDDDD I just compared the map to this (sorta old) unfinished pic I have of Ghaent's home. If you could add a few more eastern mountains, would be great! I DL'd your map and put a tiny blue ex to mark the spot. The estate's about half-way up a mountain. [link]
Thanks again~!!! :heart:
I swear, we NEED more maps!! XDD
