i’ve been working on this map for a custom D&D “open world adventure” with my brothers. Made entirely in photoshop (i used some brushes for the terrain like mountains, forests, etc. and some textures. All the credits are in the deviantart link)
(Extracted from the Deviantart Link)
In this region you can find 5 “factions” (not including creatures/pirates/bandits/mercenaries/evil creatures, etc):
The Morden Empire: Medieval European like empire.
The Janlyn Empire: Medieval Asian like empire.
Elven Houses: There’s a Royal House, but each house follows his own leader. The structure is like the Game of Thrones “houses organisation”.
Dwarven Clans: Each Clan follow his own rules and make alliances with other clans when is needed. The “Stone Lords” is the Clan choosen by all the other clans to lead the Dwarfs as one big nation.
Free Cities and Towns: Some cities which follow his own laws and rules.
There’re a few Points of interest, like the Abyss Rift (a giant crack in the mountains, which have a passage to the underworld/abyss, or something like that), a Jungle Temple (Qakoph), a sunken city, etc. I’m still looking to add more PoI or special locations/events to the map.
