The new (REAL) World Map

Post by Rico on Sat Apr 02, 2016 5:24 am

I'm sure many of you saw our amazing world map over April Fools. Well guess what? It wasn't that much of a joke. That hand-drawn map was actually based off our real world map, which (with april fools being over) we are now ready to release. The map is able to be used and RP'd with in any official RP (Unless a host has their own setting). Additionally, ANY user of RP is free to use the map for their own customs and docs. Use of this map is encouraged, but not compulsory.

Before we go on, you may notice the map seems a little sparse, with only one continent having any named regions. With the completion of the World Map Contest, the map itself should see a lot more growth in the coming months. Stay tuned for an expanded world map - created by YOU!

World Information
The Dimensional Portals
One of the many things that makes this world unique is the dimensional tears littering the lands. Although many are temporary, opening up only to deposit a hapless human or pokemon in the middle of nowhere from planets far away, some have stabilised. These more permanent portals often find themselves the centrepiece of large cities, residents of other worlds wandering through (or being sucked up by a passing tear) need somewhere to stay.
((OOC Information: The Dimensional Portals mean you may bring a character from any RP and participate in one that is focused in the RP World Map, or do the opposite and take a character from the world map and RP somewhere else. For the character, this can either be voluntary (The Stable Portals) or involuntary (The Dimensional Tears). Go wild))

The Legends
Pokemon of all different strengths exist throughout the world, but a small group deserve special mention. Known as Legendaries, these pokemon are one of a kind, with only each other to equal in power. Unlike regular pokemon, the Legendaries are unable to grow their population, but nor can they ever truly die. Should a Legend be reaching the end of its life, be it by age or battle, a new legend will be born to take its place. Some will remember the Legend of All, Arceus, sewing their eternal soul to a new body, but for many it is an entirely new experience, the secret of their reincarnations unknown to them. Rarely, a legend will find itself fractured in to multiple bodies, only upon the death or absorption of these extra parts can the true legend emerge.
Other worlds are known to contain legendaries as well, however only 8 have ever survived a trip through the dimensional portals. Although the native legends are able to travel to and from other worlds, legends from other worlds rarely survive.
((OOC Information: This is to make a bit more sense for the legendary system, as well as to explain why there is only 1 legend of any type. The 8 legends are Deoxys and the UltraBeasts (not to be confused with a boyband). This is not a strict rule, only a guideline.))


The Continent of Cendria
Enlarged Map:

Full Size Version: http://i.imgur.com/WAumELJ.jpg
Built on the ruins of past empires, Cendria is a largely uninhabited continent, humans often finding nature pushing back against them at every turn. Two large cities and several small towns operate together to etch out a living, but there is always a question of when the next disaster will strike.
Author: Rico

Goldrock Ruins
Barely 40 years ago the mining town of Goldrock was struck first by a devastating earthquake, then buried by the following volcanic eruption. A small settlement has since risen up near the ruins, the locals still afraid to upset the mountain again with their mining. Instead, the village is full of those seeking to study the ruins and the volcano itself. Little progress has been made due in part to the ghosts inhabiting the ruins, and the pokemon that have descended from the mountains to live side-by-side with the dead.
Author: Rico

Highpeak Castle
Nestled against the mountains that give it its name, Highpeak Castle serves as the gate between east and west Cendria, by both Land and Sea. A grand, sprawling port town where even the grime of the stones tell history. Bustling with tourists wishing to visit the immense keep or those simply passing through its channels in to the eastern ocean, it tends to be a place where many businesses covet to start, with the wide range of potential customers. Despite its bustling nature, few outside Cendria know of the immense port city, hearing only of the sparkling gems that pass through its port.
Author: Rico and Penelope Skie

Southpoint
The first settlers of Southpoint had grand visions of a bustling port town where merchants from across the seas would visit first, before travelling onwards to Highpeak. Unfortunately, the Southern Forests had other ideas. Always pleasantly warm despite its southern location, Southpoint is blessed with its Fairy Garden, central to all the problems the villagers have experienced. Strange stones litter the area, marked with images of fairy pokemon playing. At its centre, a large tree-like stone stands, originally fashioned to look like Xerneas, but since damaged beyond what the unnatural stones could heal.
Author: Rico and Areidis

Sparkling Lake
Thousands of years ago, a grand empire sprawled across the continent of Cendria, its cities built from the gems they so easily harvested. All that remains of this empire now rests at the bottom of the Sparkling Lake, a grand jeweled city, so deep no human is able to reach. Occassionally, pieces of the city break free, floating towards the surface over a series of months, giving the lake its name and the nearby town of Jewelheart its lifeblood.
Author: Rico and Areidis

Jewelheart
Built on the shores of the Sparkling Lake a century ago, the town of Jewelheart lives almost exclusively on the wealth of a long deceased empire. With sole access to the lake, Jewelheart is able to sell its gem encrusted jewelery at a premium, Its exclusive deal with Highpeak sees the town well-fed, and its coffers overflowing.
Author: Rico

Sage Woods
Taking up the entire eastern half of the continent, the Sage Woods remains largely uninhabited by humans, filled instead with pokemon. Attempts to keep the roads to those few settlements deep within have all but failed, patrols from Jewelheart discontinued due to a lack of profit. The towns within remain largely self-sufficient, native humans passing by more than happy to help where the villagers have failed. Over the years, pokemon attacks on the villages have diminished, but any who attempt the trek to Jewelheart still need be prepared.

What is this for? (What can I use this map for)

This map is always active in Freeroam and is now the official "Doc" of that RP. Again, you don't have to use it when you're RPing, but it is encouraged.

The map is also active in any RP where the host wishes to use it. This can include Conquest, Trainer, Dungeons and Dragonites, Survival, Kingdom or even your very own custom.


We like it when people come up with their own worlds and stories, so when you're making your custom or your trainer doc feel free to go wild, have your own thing, but if you'd rather not you're free to take from our official map as much or as little as you need.
