Emirates of Narwan

+Bruce Heard is posting a series of articles on the +World of Calidar's Emirates of Narwan.  This arid nation in the southeast of the Great Caldera is one of two former colonies which  exclusively worship Soltan, the sun god, forbidding all other faiths within their borders.

If you've read CAL1, you may remember that Meryath's easternmost major island, Kamearea, is also claimed by Narwan.  Up until now this is pretty much all we know about Narwan.

The new articles preview material from the upcoming CC1 Beyond the Skies.  Although CC1 primarily covers the gods and pantheons of the Great Caldera nations, in so doing it also provides significant back story and other details, making it a real treasure trove of information on the Caldera.

For the second article in the series, I created a 3D view of Narwan upon which Bruce overlaid migration data, resulting in a historical map of Narwan.  I wouldn't want to do this with regular maps, because the perspective makes any kind of measurement pretty much impossible, but for thematic maps like this, it seems rather nice.  The mountains and hills really stand out when viewed at an angle.

Here are some full resolution views of the map.
