Phobiopolis - Dream VI

Last in pool
I should have done this literally years ago. But I've never drawn a map and had no idea who to comission for one. Unfortunately, only now did it occur to me, 'I wonder if there are online mapmaking sites?' Derr.

Give it up for Inkarnate.com. I paid five bucks for their pro pack, and the sheer amount of textures I got was well, well worth it. This is what my first map looked like: https://i.imgur.com/5qx2ovi.png

So now you can finally get a sense of where all your favorite dreadful places are in my little accidental afterworld. Distances are obviously not to scale. This is meant to be like something that would be drawn by someone inside Phobiopolis. Their best guess. So they can be forgiven for not realizing a few important things about it...

Phobiopolis must be a really small place.

Naw. This is an entire world. Every letter represents a city or country-sized territory.

I'm intrigued by the fact that Phobiopolis is long and narrow.  What is beyond the edges of this map?

Nothing. It's like the Holodeck; it actively resists you reaching the sides. If you walk towards them it'll either delete land behind you so you don't actually progress, or just alter the terrain to curve you 90 degrees.

I immediately thought the strip-like layout to be more of an illustration rather than a to-scale map. I have come across "maps" like that before in some tourist guides. Gives an idea of what's between here and there, but not with any sense of scale.

Off the edges should/could have HEER SVNT DRAGIN* or something like that, indicating unexplored or unknown lands, or places that are even more unstable and subject to change while Heisenberg isn't watching.

* A dragon, in drag, dragging on cigarettes, while drag racing on the main drag, still doesn't make the place any less of a drag.

Or there's just literally nothing there...

Nothing there? Sounds like the Texas Panhandle, which my mother described as "The most Nothing I've ever seen in one place" when we drove across it!

(Pic not loading. Unknown why. Oh well.)

It was just an ampersand dragging his butt across the floor.

This is a very nice map, you've done well.   I was hoping to see if what was in my head matched all the big wheels of a certain city though. However I guess it would be a little hard to draw. It is still a very impressive structure none the less.

Yeah, the site has lots of nifty elements, but it's definitely themed for medieval fantasy type places. So no way to stack up a whole bunch of wheels.
