Shadow Glyph - Map of Midgard by nikwriter Shadow Glyph - Map of Midgard by nikwriter
Drawn by the royal cartographer, Veren Nallar, in the Year of Olympus 583, this parchment map indicates major cities and villages of interest. Additional colouring denotes the holdings of the Imperial Princes of the Triumvirate: House Theseus of Athyns in the North, House Odyn of Olympus to the South-west and House Gothikar of Avernus to the South-east. While minor changes to locations may occur with time, this is an accurate representation of the sovereign fiefs as they have stood since the Trionus War and will stand for eternity, as the Maker wills.
Designed in Photoshop between two artists (myself and ~Onironus), this is a redesigned version of the map featured in Shadow Glyph, the first book in its namesake series. With Book 2 on the way, I decided to provide a requested poster of the map for readers. With Shadow Glyph set five years after the date of this map, features are likely to change as the series unfolds. I may upload other maps for poster prints should interest for them arise.

Hope you enjoy!
Also, credit to coyotemax for the parchment textures.
