Image discussion

I'd kind of prefer showing the Enworld map in a large "thumbnail", as follows, so that the info that it is somewhat out of date is better visible, but then it'd take a lot of space. Perhaps a small thumbmail is better. Eques Concordia 13:41, 13 March 2007 (EDT)

The first map of Enworld. (Some aspects out of date.)
You're right, it looks better smaller. The curious can always click for a higher resolution. Oh, and it would be nice to have a more up to date world map. The world is 25,000 miles in diameter, not 2500. And the disk is hexagonal, not circular. Among other things. -Rae ArdGaoth 14:09, 13 March 2007 (EDT)
Yeah, unfortunately we never really had a cartographer that lasted. I'm not sure who made this first attempt (I think it was Scorpio), who apparently never came back, and Goblin King created two detail maps only. I'd love to have a more up-to-date map as well.

Locations in Question

Where is Riem? -Rae ArdGaoth 23:07, 13 March 2007 (EDT)

Where is Damas? -Rae ArdGaoth 02:39, 14 March 2007 (EDT)

Categorization in Question

I added two new sections (The Lands of X Tower), but I'm not sure they should be there. Are those locations actually that close to the towers, or is the world map actually much larger than those articles give it credit for? -Rae ArdGaoth 00:15, 14 March 2007 (EDT)

In my mind, those regions are large enough to warrant their own sections, though I'm not sure off-hand if we ever established how far they reach and how regular the "borders" are. The most extreme effects are only rather close to the Towers (I'd put them at a few miles), but other effects do remain as you move more centerwards. I'd guess in-game a distance of 6000 to 8500 miles from Orussus might still be considered the Central Lands (between less than halfway and more than 2/3 the distance to an Elemental Tower). But as I said, I'd have to check if something else has been established. Sairundan should be in the Lands of Air or at least bordering them, for example. Eques Concordia 12:37, 14 March 2007 (EDT)

Is Monemvassia far enough away from Orussus to warrant its own section? It's within the "Northern Mountains to Stonespike Mountains" region, so I think not. And what about Three-Rings? I know little about these regions. -Rae ArdGaoth 03:16, 15 March 2007 (EDT)

I'm going to suggest that, because Monemvassia and the Vastermarch is so extensive, they be given their own page, the "Monemvassia Region". I actually think it might be more appropriate to call it the "Vastermarch Region". Is Monemvassia a part of Vastermarch? They seem close, geographically. -Rae ArdGaoth 05:00, 15 March 2007 (EDT)

Size of the World

Logicsfate said "Creamsteak wishes the world circumference to be like our world diameter at the equator - 40000 km or 25000 miles". I'll check the actual thread to make sure it isn't Logicsfate's typo, but that would mean that Enworld is actually only 8000 miles across. Or I'm grossly misinterpreting Logicsfate. Rae ArdGaoth 23:12, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

The actual discussion is here.
Goblin King:Its possible I have simply forgotten but I don't recall anyone ever asking how big ENWorld is. I have turned it over in my head and I think the best way to approach the problem is to decide how long it should take to go from one side to the other. Assumeing 30 miles a day without having to stop and go around stuff how long should it take to move from the tower of Water to the tower of Fire? </br>
I was thinking that four years would be a good number. That would give the hex 43,800 miles diameter. Plenty big enough to put anything we could possibly think of into it.
Creamsteak: I'd like it if the world had the same diameter across as your world has circumference at the equator. Don't know how realistic that is, and if the origin stories told by some of the gods are true it would mean enworld came from a planet with much more density and gravity than earth...
Orsal: If by "your world" you mean "earth" (and it seems a strange way to refer to it, since unless there's something I don't know about you it's your world as much as ours...), circumference is is 40,000 km, or 25,000 miles. So a little over half as large as The Goblin King suggested, two to two and a half years to walk across. Seems reasonable to me.
Seems to me that Logicsfate accidently switched diameter and circumference, then.
