I’m a bit of a map nerd (he said proudly), and I just love creating worlds. World building is easily my favorite part of storytelling. I spend untold numbers of hours (weeks, really) researching geography, history, animal and plant evolution, and mythological origin stories, all so I can create our own.
We refer to Aedynar throughout our stories, from the prequel novel Fog Over Mandaree onward. If you’ve read Ascending Mage 5: Changeling Uprising, then you know that Aedynar isn’t just a throwaway plot device.
It’s a real fictional world. So, of course, it needs a real fictional map!
So as a new bonus, here’s a glimpse at the work-in-progress map of Aedynar (if that sort of thing is of interest to you).
And whether or not that’s of interest to you, you can expect more Aedynar lore as time goes by. I’ve got physical binders overflowing with scribbles and sketches on this evolving world. There’s even an origin story (“Before The Beginning”) which I’ll be sharing with you soon.
