    Great to see the post SHB map.
    In the next update for the map, you should add the locations of the Pyrrean pass, Order of the flame, new Castle of Kome, Forest of Rendor, the demonic garrison Carnazoth, and pinpoint with red dots the location of big human garrisons. (The last 3 would be nice optional details)

    Wow, Shar you've really surprised me with this one. Not at all what I imagined the world of Arkain would look like, are you planning to add more details to the map? (such as the location of some of the more memorable battles fought in your campaign like the Battle in the Pearl of Lorr)

    Also at point in the Kingdom of Salria become overrun with orcs and other beasts ?

    Lastly how far into Pyrru did Gardon go on that Rebellion mission(The mission with that long pass), I've drawn a white line on how far I think he went, is this close or completely off?

    He did not really march that much into Pyrru.
    Gardon broke through the pass and then went to the capital of Toran, not Pyrru, since Toran was being taken over by Retka.

    This is most astounding! Great job as always, Shar.
    Though I wonder how the Empire's continent looks like

    Figures why Renova was being a pain. To be honest, Isalmur has the worst position out of all kingdom, being straight path to Gates of Hell. No doubt you'll see it crumbles quickly with such positioning.

    The harbour where the Empire arrived the first time on Arkain.
    Its name was changed to Broken Promise after the Second Void War.

    Woa @Shar Dundred, that wasn’t what I expected the kingdoms to look like at all. I tended to think that they are on an island based continent where each kingdom is separated from the others by a river, a lake or a t least some mountains. Also for some reason I assumed that demons were invading all the kingdoms around the void . Looks Like Pyrru in the north and Salria in the south are the ones best located for the invasion. Well done Shar, for some reason I thought Kerrel was the northest kingdom, guess I was proven wrong.

    Here is a very oversimplified map of what I thought the layout of Arkain was like, @Shar Dundred: without any sign of what the actual place looks like we had no other choice but to guess, one things that map do is put battles and stories into a proper geographic perspective, this was not available in Arkain, a campaign which badly needed it due to battles and events taking place all over the map, I'm glad that Shar Dundred finally made a map which allowed us to see where events unfolded as well as to understand how these events were influenced by the topography of the continent. Lastly Shar Dundred I know my map is way off, but for someone who has no clue or ability to deduce the shape or arrangement of something how well did I do?

    I always thought that the Pyrru kingdom was a very mountainous region because of the pass mission, that was one of those missions that make you wanna toss your mouse out the window, especially towards the end where you have to find and destroy 2 barracks which are inside random rebel bases.

    Another update for the worldmap, including several new special places, most of them being in Zyainor.
    I will probably write a short story for each of them.
