Welcome to the new world!
Okay, so I've been trying to refine and redevelop Cirundi over the past few years here - a process which has been greatly retarded due to my lack of muse for the kithkin and greater focus on the Horror Shop universe/multiverse/whathaveyou. However, sometimes the mapping bug bites me and I'll dedicate a day or two to further refining and developing Cirundi.
And this is where it stands now! There's been several major changes - most important of which has been increasing the ice caps' coverage of the world, because Cirundi is supposed to be, by default, an ice-age planet, about 10C cooler than Earth is, on average. Which means that those deserts and jungles there? Yeah, they're more like the American Southwest/Columbia Plateau and the Pacific Northwest/Caspian Jungles than the Sahara or Amazon.
Other than that, there haven't been too many changes. I've added in some major lakes, added some more islands and peninsulas, generally just fidgeted around with items so that they looked "better" in my eyes. Also, completely unintentional here and realized only after I had settled on the design and began colouring things here, but if you take the "Spine of the World" island chain and consider it to be a literal spine, one can envision a very stylized kithkin lying around the Great Circle region, with Vaiyoodo as the head, Dreqae as the legs, etc. Which works extremely well, since Cirundi is both the name of the planet and the goddess/titan/spirit of the world itself (and legendary mother of the kithkin races). So... yeah! That works!
Also included some cities here, such as Orone, Alsten, Vovoy, Dal Aiya, In Hiiza, etc. Look for the parts that look grey-ish due to the sprawl of asphalt and concrete
Just as a reference here, folks, I used the excellent mapping tutorial Eriond by Arsheesh of the Cartographer's Guild while making this: www.cartographersguild.com/tut…
While I broke my computer (again) and am stuck using Ubuntu, and thus was not able to use Wilbur to help with this map, it worked decently without it. I'm not going to pretend this is perfect, as the "beta" in the title indicates, and once I do get windows again I'll probably go through the tutorial properly and create a much nicer, and more accurate, map - but hey, as it stands now, this isn't half bad. It's about one quarter bad, but I'll take it
Anyhow, Cirundi, the kithkin, and related materials belong to yours truely,
, but if you want to use the world, concepts, and ideas presented here, feel free to ask! Other than that, I will try to answer all questions, comments, and concerns in a most timely manner here!
