So my main conworld is under heavy construction again :)
I'll post about its alternative physics and all that later but
in the meanwhile here is a new image I made today about
how its cosmos looks:

The Worldtree (or rather Worldnetwork but it's less poetic).
The tree, branches and barks are alive. The continents move
and spread like moss on a bark.

Here is an old image on the same theme:

Here is an old rough map of one particular region of the world:

With the major populations:

And when this world was still a planet, before I decided to switch to the treelike cosmos:

THAT'S FUCKING NIFTY. How does gravity work?

Spiffy awesome. So are the continents like "parasites" or "symbiotes" to the world tree, or are they just there and spread?

How big is it?

Also, for when you post the main, non-cartographic, article:
How do you/they map it?
How does the weather work?
Do you have day and night?

THAT'S FUCKING NIFTY. How does gravity work?
I agree.

How fast do the continents move in your world?

Wow! Thanks for the feedback everybody.
I'll try to write detailed answers in the other
sections tonight.

A map of the Peninsula most of my stories happen in:

It takes forever to make maps and I suck at relief shading but hopefully this will give a rough idea of the places I talk of in the other sections. You can match it with the population density map in the first post, they are at the same period of history.

This map is likely to change a lot because I'm still hesitating between plate tectonics and moss-on-the-tree dynamics. :P

Your relief isn't precise, as far as telling be how tall the mountains are, but I think it looks pretty good and generally gets the job done.

I do like your colour choices, and your shape in general is pleasing. I can't really say much bad about it at all

I would suggest that you combine the population map with this one somehow- it would make things easier to understand having it all in one place.


Will you be creating animations for the changes over time?

Population map animations? Good idea! I'll have a go at it for the history of the Rising (I'm about to post a short history of it in the other section). Yes, I really need to improve and strengthen relief shading. That was my first attempt at making a 'serious' map, so I hope the next ones will be a bit better. The highest mountains are the Thunder peaks, some 18,000 ft high, while the 'darksidest' ones are half as high.

Draftish illustration about variable-orbit sun and seasons (sorry about crappy writing on tablet):

And another draft about how the sky might look with the branches:
