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.

See how it's evolved:
* Revision #5

A very impressive work indeed! Me and my comrade penguinator24 are wishing to use only the map's layout and to try and come up with our own names for this ongoing fanfiction of ours. www.fimfiction.net/story/23562…

We highly appreciate your offer to use it freely for non-profit works.

A great day to you, sir. 8D

Just dropping a line to say I plan on using this map for a long-term project of my own! I'll make sure to credit you once the chapter is live.

Love the map, I plan to use some places in a story I'm working on. :D
Just an idea, for the North and South poles, maybe you could do the North Stall and South Stall? Like horse stalls? (Sorry if it's a bad idea, just popped into my head.)

Also, I have a bit of a question. With some of the recent MLP episodes, where would you put Yakyakistan on this map? Heh, or Saddle Arabia for that matter?

Hi there. I've been using an older version of your map as a reference for a pony fic I've been writing orig11.deviantart.net/a5fb/f/2… Revision 7, I believe. Thank you so damn much for making these, it's truly epic. :D

Sadly, it was never started. Life gets in the way. And only now (three years later) am I ready to start. Here's to hoping it materializes before the end of the year!

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.

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.

:iconchaoticnote:
ChaoticNote Featured By Owner Edited Jun 12, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
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.
