B) Dude every time you put up a new map it gets better and better. I don't know how you do it. Have you ever done anything other than the maps? Or maps of individual countries? You have done such a great job with what you've put up here. If you have other stuff post it (minding copyright stuff.....hate to see you lose something of yours) in the thread. I'd love to see it.

:) You do some really good work Chrysagon.....is it just a hobby or is it what you do for a living? Those are some pretty good looking maps. I think my favorite would be the mithril v2.jpg. Really cool stuff so let us know when you get your website up. ;)

to me the Hyborian Age is like the dark age. you cant put definite lines and boundaries. a map of it couldnt be anymore than a preliminary sketch. Ill stick with Howards maps

:) hey thanks for the nice compliments guys !

i specialise in the stimulation of the primal brain functions of big strong barbarians.

imagine u have entered my 3d world map.
u are stood atop the tall proud twin volcano peaks.
u can feel the soft 'ground' rippling, trembling + shuddering beneath your naked feet.

Hi Chrysagon.
Awesome work!!
I'm a bit curious about the mapping of Vendhya.
I've heard of Jhumda and Ayodhya but Khorala and Bak Harus don't sound familiar. And is Uttara Kuru a seperate land (or kingdom)? Haven't come across it in any of the stories.Maybe you should have located it to the north of Vendhya instead of the east.

About Khitai:
Wasn't the Great wall built much after Conan's time? If this is some other Wall that appears in yet another Conan story that I haven't read, then forgive my ignorance cause I've haven't read too many of them. ;)
All fled--all done, so lift me on the pyre--
The Feast is over, and the lamps expire.

I may be more ignorant than you are !
I used several maps available concerning Conan's world and made a compilation of them. On Mongoose Forum I've learned that the great wall was a Nysberg addition. Any further information is welcome.

Hi all.
Here are the final versions of the map :
http://chrysagon.fre...yboria_1024.jpg
http://chrysagon.fre...yboria_1280.jpg
http://chrysagon.fre...yboria_1600.jpg
http://chrysagon.fre...ia_Complete.jpg
The first 3 ones are for wall paper purposes, and the last for printing purposes. A lot of modifications have been made, mainly corrections. But many locations have been added (like towns and Amazonia and Juma's Kingdom). The 1024x768 version as been simplified for better looking.
I truly hope you all enjoy it. It is not meant to be THE map, just an interpretation among others. Please feel free to use it.
