Looking for maps

I’ve been looking for maps (other than the sl map) of the region of the world where Babbage is located. There is one here made by Mr. Cleanslate. And I remember seeing another within the last year which showed some geographical details but I haven’t been able to find it again.

Clearly there is a plain to the north and there is likely a mountain range further on as the town of Bump is located on a mountainside.

Spread the love

    I have a copy of that one dear.  I’ll dig it up for you…

    Thanks for posting this. I too have been curious for what the steamlands area looks like.

    I came across this one in the Topographical Society archives,  but I suspect it is wholly unreliable.

    I’m guessing you’re referring to that discussion about neighboring towns from the old Ning site? I actually saved most of that including the maps from Mr. Underby and Aizek Tchailenov. Caledon/Winterfell is supposed to be it’s own island/continent beyond Illuminopolis and Steelhead is in the U.S. (natch).

    Brief notes on the places mentioned:

    Ravila – Dark coastal town

    Illuminopolis – To the west of Babbage. The old Imperial capital.

    Tyrol – A “clockwork town” (according to Tenk)

    Falun – Mining town with stunted inhabitants.

    Bump – *North* of Falun.

    The Harbor Landing colony in Antarctica – 20 miles from the Ronne Ice Shelf, populated almost entirely by automotons. (according to Grendel Footman)

    Port Hoffsin – Steampunk fishing village. Founded by soldiers who deserted the old Imperial Army.

    Phaeton’s Landing – A port-turned-vacation-spot where fleecing visitors is the local pastime.

    Aunoulis Valley – Pastoral region that is home to many vineyards that produce many varieties of dreadful wine.

    Ouverberg – (#4 on the map) A large town of about 45,000 nestled in a steep mountain valley by a lake. (according to Gabriell Anatra)

    Riverton – (#5 on the map) A river town notable for the fact half the town is located within and around the large, Imperial age (and long inactive) “Riverton Device”. (according to Grendel Footman)

    Avary – (#6 on the map) A successful and wealthy mining town destroyed by a mine fire, now deserted. (according to Mr. Underby)

    Gaulthes Rite – Affluent town that surrounds a brutal, largely subterranean prison. 

    Port Westgäard – An important portuary and merchant city since the beginnings of the Old Empire. Internationally famous for the Westgäard Fish Stew. (according to Aizek Tchailenov)

      Thanks to all of you! Yes, Mr. Arkwright, that is the discussion I was remembering. No wonder I could not find it.

      It would be wonderful if we could have a map that would be recognized as official. That could be a future contest: “Map of the Old Empire Region”.  It could have some uncharted or uncertain “Here be Dragons” areas to allow for the play of imaginations.

    Topperwick/Underwick is another mining town to the west of Falun, according to Bob. Bob said it, so it must be true.

    and because i have not said it in a while: when was the last time you wrote an article for the wiki? i’ll do one today, i will i will!

    was looking at free map makers just before this thread popped up too coincidentally enough

    Speaking of which, I’m working on an updated one of the city which should be finished very soon.
