Want to use my map for a fic/video/etc?
You don't need to ask my permission. If you'd like to use the map for anything non-commercial, you may. Let me know though, I love seeing what people do with it.

dude, the possibilities for people to world build is limitless with this map, especially for d&d mlp adventures, like taking it to eleven, and until your fic is written people can use this as a backbone for a worldbuilding, say might I ask, are you into GIS (Geographical Information System aka map building)?

Actually, from what I've read, The Echo is a mountainous landscape, but said mountains kinda....move, so it's hard to map out.

I really like this map.
For my fanfic, The PONICLE, I'm making the pony world map base on the future Earth--either about 100,000,000 years or so, or when Pangea Ultima is around.

LOL! How long did it take you to make all those wordplay'd cities?

Gotta ask what is: "The Echo", "The Breach", "The Lost World", "Ley Line" and everything  beyond the Ley Line.

I've asked Vikonaut about the Ley Lines before, so I'll give you guys a direct quote from him.

"It's probably not so relevant now, but the gist of it is that they're ley lines. In the map's canon (at the time it was made) they were impassible walls of magic that wreak havoc on the climate and topography of the surrounding geography. 

In the new incarnation of the map's canon, they are simply points of interest; points of no return. Mysteries and anomalies. No two explorers will give the same account of what the areas are like, and no one that have ventured further has ever returned. As such, they're regarded as if they were the end (or edge) of the Earth."

As for the Lost World, we can assume that it's called as such because the Ley Lines are very dangerous to cross, enough so that everything behind the Lines are unknown.

The work you put into this map is just mind blowing, even more so considering how early on in the fandom this was. If your writing is half as impressive as your planning... you'll have a classic of the mlp era to your name.

I just hope it actually happens, given it is 4 years since you started, and most mlpverse creators don't seem to last that long.

Is that an error on the edge of the Forgotton Sea between the red/white area and the "blank" area (just above the sheet "Where the world ends")?

I'm sorry if my english is bad, I'm not a native speaker, but I try to be understood.

Hey, I'm wondering if I can use this map for an extension fic to Fallout: Equestria. Like a side shoot story. Just for locations and such. But if you know a better map for Fallout: Equestria I'd be very grateful if you pointed me in the right direction. Also I have to say that this map I amazing. Is should be cannon! :)

Hi there! My friend TheMyth showed me this map and we decided on using it for a new series of fanfics we're writing together called The Arcane, which actually makes many parts of the series a lot easier to write; so if you wanted more info or just wanted to talk to us about the map in case there was anything important about it, that would fantastic!
The first book of the series, with any luck of school not interfering with my schedule, should come out in the next few months, and as a final note, thank you for making such an amazing map!

Hello! This is a wonderful map! Ah, it's so beautiful! I was wondering, since you have some remarkable skill in making maps, I was wondering if I could get a custom map made. It's for my story. There are a few races that I need to sort out where their homeland would be, and I just can't seem to find a way to do so...
Note me and I can give you more detail if you're interested in taking the offer.
Thank you so much,
~Temper

You know what I just realize? North America would at least take up 1/4 of this map, if your map scale is true.
EDIT: Wait nevermind. Even bigger. More than half.
The reason why I have a problem with this is that I can't call those Oceans when America is 10x the size of the "Antlertic Ocean."

It doesn't have to be North America. It can be its own, based off nothing nation.
