My question is, would you please line up the Elendel Basin with the map of the Final Empire, so that we can get an idea of where it fits on that map?
Also, could we get or are we going to get a world map for Scadrial? Or even just the entire Northern Continent? I love your maps and I love seeing where everything is!
What a great question, and thank you for your kind words. I've never posted this before, but this is what I used [image with green circle] in laying out the Elendel basin after figuring out how big we needed it to be to produce the amount of crops we wanted and also in figuring out the scale of the rest of the known world. The caveat here is that when we created the new map of the Final Empire--the one found in the leatherbound books and the new mass market paperbacks--we revisited the scale of the Final Empire with the help of our continuity editor Karen.
So while that image is what I used to create the Elendel Basin back in 2010 or 2011, we might have to revise the scale once we start showing more of the world. And yes, I suspect that in future books, we'll be getting more maps of various places on Scadrial, and maybe an entire world map at some point.
Awesome! So this would be pretty accurate? https://i.imgur.com/lfQkD3g.png [superimposed image]
I would say that's pretty close, though remember that the land might've changed a great deal at the end of The Hero of Ages
