Fantasy books are supposed to have maps, right? It's practically inscribed into the writers' scrolled rulebook, right next to the stipulation about names that look like the author's spreading arse has seated itself upon a keyboard. And every author has followed suit since the famous cartographer, Tolkein. (I never got on with LotR, by the way) Well, I set about making some the other day. I think the compass arrangement looks strangely sexual.

 And in full technicolour:

Edit: Not that I don't like fantasy names... After all, it gives you all sorts of opportunities to play with sounds, double meanings and "in-your-end-o"s.
