I have a friend who plays too much ToME, if such a thing is possible. His birthday is in a few months, and I decided that I would get him a map of Maj'Eyal to hang on his wall. Since I couldn't find any good ones online, I decided to make my own, which I will then laser-print onto some nice wood. I took a screenshot of Eyal at 10x10 tile size and have been working with that, starting with the West. ToME being a tile-based game, the world map is real geometric and uninteresting in some places, so I have taken some creative liberties. Still, I want it recognizable and accurate while still being interesting and realistic. Attached is my first draft of the coastline + rivers, and I'd like to get some criticism on its shape or anything else you can think of.

In summary, I am making a stylized map of Maj'Eyal (and eventually all of Eyal) and want criticism on my efforts thus far.

Thanks for the help.

if you play ToME in dev mode, you might notice by teleporting around alot on the world map that the western and eastern continent are both on the same map, just far apart, separated by water
you'd also be able to see all of the southern continent by doing that

also some words of advice:
don't be completely surprised if it turns out he doesn't like the map
just because a person likes something doesn't mean they'd like free merchandise for it
once my family got me the guinness book of world records video game edition or something for my birthday or Christmas and i didnt like it

i think the coastline draft is fine though

I'd love a map of Maj'Eyal on my wall. I'll keep my eye on this to see where it goes. It looks good so far

Thanks for the gifting advice, I hadn't considered that. I think he'll like it though. I did actually explore the entire worldmap and found the 3 continents, but for now I'm focusing on the West.

I'm not sure if this is still worth referencing, but here is a map of the World of Eyal:

Notably, this was done before the EoR campaign, so Kruk Peninsula is missing from it.

Thank you for that map. Those spawn locations are helpful. While I'm here might as well post the full in-game screencap I took. Too big for the forums to handle, since it's been upscaled 400% (so I could draw smoothly on it).

Oh interresting! Keep us posted (and that first drafted look accurate enough), I may hang it on my wall too if it's ncie :>
I'd say, only du the continent of Maj though, the southern one is never seen ingame.

Can't you see the southern continent from the Abashed Expanse?
