Most fantasy maps are really, really horrible. Here’s some of the worst offenders:
Eragon-world: The At Least One of Everything Fantasy Map.
Goodkind-land: The All the Borders Perfectly Follow Geographic Features Fantasy Map.
Kushiel-world: The Not Trying Hard Just Like Earth Fantasy Map.
Middle-Earth: The God Made It Fantasy Map.
Narnia: The Inconsistent Travel Distance Fantasy Map.
Valdemar: The Place Names Sound Really Made Up Fantasy Map.
Westeros: The Conveniently Paper-Shaped Continent Fantasy Map.
Randland: The Copying Stupid Things Tolkien Did Fantasy Map.
The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms: The Fantasy Maps Are Mainstream Fantasy Map.
- OK i hate fantasy maps
- i will literally check the book and put it back if it has a map
- but still
- a hundred thousand fucking kingdoms
- and you don’t include a map?
- OH COME ON
- if you had to make up a hundred thousand country names to put on the map
- maybe you’d rethink the title of the book
Ahahaha okay, now I finally understand why 1000K is on this list, because it doesn’t have a map.
But aren’t most epic fantasy maps there because the characters travel to places on the map a lot and thus you kind of want to see their path? In 1000K the main character comes from Darre an there’s mention of it, but all of the main action takes place in Sky, so why do we need a map of the rest of the world?
But also: hehehehe y’all are funny.
