The Land of Meias

On the 6th and 7th of February I created a map of an imaginary land. It is going to go with a fantasy story I have started to write about a young man named Alfred that travels through The Land of Meias making for The city of Meiastria and the dark city of Doleguin, infested with trolls and goblins called Yarga that ride giant spiders and strange skeletal horses. Throughout Alfred's journey he meets wizards and naga, dwarves and forest elves, treemen and the sinister spider people of the Deep forest.

I have been inspired by many things from the real world and other books. The blue pen line on the map is the route that Alfred and his friends take through Meias. The once peaceful land has been plunged into  war and danger, cities are being abandoned and pillaged, forests are shrinking, races are dying and destruction is everywhere. Can Alfred stop it before it is too late?

  1. Wow Jake, what a map! I also love the teaser that you've written about the as yet unwritten fantasy. I can't wait to read it. Move over Tolkien! Love Grandad.
