The Westlands by jollyjack The Westlands by jollyjack
I'm gradually mapping out the history and geography of the "Central World", which the Battle Bunnies comic takes place in.

The Westlands are divided into smaller nations, but all either follow or are ruled over (undecided at this point) by a monarchy, most likely from the capital of Allia.

Westland nations use European countries as a thematic template:
Allia (comparable to France)
Medren (comparable to Italy)
Umbria (comparable to Germany/Alpine nations)
Ellada (comparable to Greece)
Nalbin (comparable to Britain)

Noren and Volsci are not part of or ruled by the Westlands. They're home to independant, northern tribes.

The Babrayan Coast is arid/desert wilderness.

EDIT - Yes, I know some regions ARE actual places. I do that quite a bit. There's a character in Battle Bunnies called "Varanasi", which is actually a location in India. I used it because the theme used for the region he is from is based on India.

I like your world map. The only thing that I question is your compass in the center right area in red. It has no top end or is it not a compass? I am lost, but it still looks good.

hyHey, jolly.....just to make you know, but Umbria is a region of Italy aaaand the one i live! really curious thing.....how did you choose that name!?

"Umbra" is Latin for shadow (or similar) - I just added an "i" :)
Fits the geography of the region marked on the map.

Why does Ellada look so chopped-up, and in such a geometric manner, too (unless that's just your style)?
Is there some climatic effect on geography, like glacial "cuts" (although that wouldn't make much sense considering its assumed latitude), or was there some sort of war that took a toll on the landscape?
Could it have been magical, as told in Page 20? (I'm not really paying much attention to the location of the events taking place, tbh.)

If you can't say, then I'll assume it may be explained in the story.

Heh. In the distant future, when I eventually put Battle Bunnies into a hardcopy format, I'll have to beg you to do one of the back-cover pin-ups I commission for my comics. A Kahn Kommando in your style would be awesome :D

My mind keeps trying to force the Norwegian peninsula on this map. By the way, where is the planet's equator? The architectural style in your comic suggests the lands are fairly close to the equator.

:iconjollyjack:

Noren is pretty much the Norwegian Peninsula.
The Equator is a distance south of Azkendaren.

The physiographer in me thinks the isthmus south of Ellada 'looks weird'. Is Azkehdareh a (strategically important) connection between seas like the Dardanelles? (Looks like a prime place for battles). Also, if Medren and Ellada collided with Allia thus forming the 'Alps' of Umbria then the ocean basin to the east of Umbria is oddly sudden, especially the firth (fiord?) next to the northlands of Ellada. ... unless the sea with a compass rose in it were a gigantic impact crater?

Ancient, continent sized craters on the world map, and the remains of an ancient-but-conspicuously-absent civiliation cropping up in the recent comics... Now there there's a piece of plot that writes itself. ;)
