Map of Mennara

Recommended Posts

Mennara_map_zpsqbvfkc5b.jpg

This is a map of Mennara from the Diskwars era. I recommend you download the map so you can zoom in and see the names of places more clearly.

As @Hidatom noticed, this map does not seem to match the descriptions of Mennara from the recent lore guide, but considering lots of time and 3 great wars have occurred between this map and the current state of Mennara in Runewars, it's hard to say how the land may have changed. It's also worth noting that cardinal directions are not indicated on this map, so we are only assuming that North is up.

Let's list some of the descriptions from the lore guide for you to compare to this map:

  • "The Aymhelin -- the greatest forest in all Mennara -- stretches from the south of Terrinoth and west of the Ru to the southern ocean."
  • "East beyond the careful watch of Hernfar Isle in Terrinoth's northeast, and as far south as the edge of the Aymhelin, the sunbleached steppes of the Ru gleam across the wide Lothan River."
  • "Something stirs in the north. Long has the thirteenth barony lay dormant, but now, each day another village is swallowed into the mists." (From the learn to play booklet)

The Aymhelin does not appear anywhere on this map. Is it the same as Lotharia, the home of the elves during the first darkness? If so, it should border the Ru Darklands, which it does not.

The Ru appears to be norhtwest, rather than northeast. Perhaps North is to the left of this map? That would work for the relative position of the baronies to the Ru, because that big green area in the right-center is where the Knights of Falladir once dwelt (though Knights also lived in the Thelgrim Peninsula to the left).

During the first darkness, the Thelgrim Peninsula was lost to the Uthuk and the undead of Farrenghast. Could that be the northern Mistlands now?

I wonder if The Mistlands is a growing area as Waiqar's influence spreads? The mists have been described as "Waiqar's mists" in Descent.  It's tricky trying to join up the lore (which I'm trying to do for creating my campaigns for Descent) and there are odd snippets too such as the mention of the Daewyl elves in Zarihell's description.

 

FFG really need to do a lore book from the various games so it's all in one place (well at least what we have so far)!

I strongly suspect they will do a larger lore book and it will likely conflict with older lore same as some of the more recent stuff conflicts with old Disc Wars lore from back when this setting was new. I'd Runewars TMG lore book and forward is the new direction and the most "valid".

I can't figure out where the runebound map would fit in here.  That's a pretty updated map of a few of the free cities, so I'd imagine it would be 'canon' for runewars as well.

EDIT: Just realized this is diskwars era, so it'll probably be a lot different compared to whatever world map they might make nowadays.

Compare this map to the one above.

 

It looks like the elves will be completely untouched by hostilities, mostly supporting the Baronies. The Thelgrim penninsula has changed, the Mistlands are now where the Broken plains used to be, the orcs are now in dwarf lands, and the dwarves aren't a buffer between the Ru and the Baronies anymore.
