Atlas Keléstia - Emélrenè Map

Lands between the Es; ancient and perilous realm...

Keléstia Productions are pleased to announce the publication of Atlas Keléstia - Emélrenè Map.

This map is intended to support our forthcoming Kingdom of Emélrenè publication.

Map 'm' and map 'f'? I'm sure

Map 'm' and map 'f'?

I'm sure that I'm missing something obvious, but they look just alike. And I doubt that I'm supposed to share one version with my female players and the other with my male players...

Layers

Map 'm' is multi-layered and map 'f' is flat.

So in the 'm' version you can toggle which map layers are visible in Adobe Reader/Acrobat, including 4 extra layers that were not included when the layers were flattened to create the 'f' map.

Ah, thanks.

Maps...

while we are at maps offshowing areas on another scale then regions and map-grids...

what about a map showing the Sea of Ivae? If you cirlce it around 40° so that the shores of Shorkyne are at the bottom we get a nice little square with Harn on the left and Ivae on the right side. This one would go a long way towards creating a naval "experience".

BTW: I know that one can do that with the Venarive module, but the detail is a bit lacking when it comes to smaller ports and islands.

Something like that is already available for free.

It's not the entire Sea of Ivae, but it's a mariner-centric map of the general region, and it's free.

The Emel-Galani map includes

The Emel-Galani map includes little more than Quandas Bay vis a vis the Sea of Ivae. Puster is asking about pretty much all the Sea of Ivae to the north of that map, esp. as he has a player group heading in the direction of Suteling and Borin. Also, I'm pretty sure he wants more detail than the Emel-Galani map provides.

One could say "But the Shorkyne regional map includes all that." However, the seam between the SHKN and IVAE regional maps is crucial. The line between the IVAE row X squares and the SHKN row 1 squares is very tricky. There are shoals and reefs on the Sutel Pass between Elgosia and Seldenbaal, and at its narrowest the strait is only about a league wide in terms of navigable water.

Hmmm, maybe a map of the Gulf of Harbaal like the freebie Salonon charts would be a nice compromise.

If KP went to that trouble . . .

. . . folks would complain that "they just repackage old stuff and sell it again." And, if they saw so much as a one hex of IVAE on a map, the chorus would rise, "When is the rest of Ivinia going to be mapped?!"

They can't win, you know . . .

We did do one hex of IVAE

We did do one IVAE square already. We did hear that.

The Sea of Ivae

Well, a map would necessarily be on the scope of a regional map at least, and mainly use information that already exists from the Harn, Shorkyne and Emelrene map. It "only" needs some large scale creative work for Ivinia - mainly the bitmap and larger coastal settlements.
Most of the stuff made for Ivinia will be usefull for the regional map later on (assuming that a "later on" is planned for Ivinia).

Imho it is the Sea that also defines an area, just as we have a Baltic or Mediterran region.

Nothing is "only" with these guys.

If KP does it, it's going to be polished until it's as smooth as the soles of Fred Astaire's shoes. But I can fire up Gimp and cut-and-paste the existing maps to get something that would be fine for my personal campaign. I'd rather see these guys put their effort into stuff I can't do myself.

I do appreciate the idea. I agree that it's the connections - seas, roads, rivers - that define a region. Ideally, all the maps and articles would adopt that sort of perspective. Unfortunately, it requires a lot more work than taking the one-kingdom-at-a-time approach.

Once Ivinia is made...

- whenever this will be - the problem will solve itself, for then such a map can be cut from the existing ones.

There is, however, the problem that the angle of the map is another, means true north is not up but 40-60° to the right. 40° has the advantage of being best to fit it in a rectangle, while 60° allows us to use the same hexes, even when the square grid will look weired :-)

For now, my group can live well with the blowup from Venarive - perhaps Kelestia allows to show off the snippet I made, or I will redraw that map as an in-game handout.

In the long run, I think a naval module (Pilots Almanach V2) should come with such a map - concentrating on the areas we have stuff for.

I fear I am talking about 2017, and thats optimistic. But Hârniacs are nothing if not patient.
