MISTBORN Map
« on: August 19, 2004, 05:37:53 PM »
Those of you reading the book, or who have already read it, may be interested in the preliminary map I've worked out for the series.  

It's not all that important for the first book, since nearly everything happens inside of Luthadel, but you might like seeing this as a frame of reference.

The round map makes it look like it takes place over a hemisphere...is that intentional?

Yes, actually.  Though, when we put a map in the book, we'd probably fuzz the edges so we don't have to deal with that.  However, after what the Lord Ruler did to the world to try and stop the Deepness, the only habitable parts on the planet are the poles.

After having read the book, am I supposed to understand what the Deepness is/was?

Yeah, I figured I hadn't given Alan a cameo, and I wanted to.  So, I named a mountain after Morag.

Speaking of which, who all did you end up giving cameos to?  You had that big sign-up thread--I was just wondering who ended up getting named after what.

I was Lady Stace Whit-something, or Blanche-something, depending on what paragraph you were reading. Not sure if that was intentional or not, the two diff. names. Did I ask you about that in the comments, Brandon?

I don't think you did, but I caught it in the rewrite.
