Zothique | New map based on Carter's original

This is very broad map of the Earth's last continent, its sub-continental neighbor Cyntrom and surrounding isles. Based on the Lin Carter original (see below) found in the Ballantine Adult Fantasy series' Zothique.

  1. Hey -- what if all of Lin Carter's maps were put together on one map? Zothique, Lemuria, the Hyborian Age, Gondwane, Pellucidar, Posedianas, etc.? And just for good measure, throw in any map of Lovecraft's Dreamworlds. What would that world look like?

    1. Crazy! But Zothique is a "dying world" and those others are pre-history.

    2. Who cares about historical accuracy? Zothique can be a dying archipeligo instead.

    3. I've often thought that CAS' Hyperborea and Howard's Pre-Cataclysmic Age (the King Kull stories) would bump up nice against each other.

  2. Love this map. I have been dying to play a Zothique based game some day. It would be a blast.

    1. Thanks!

      This map was a warm-up for the "Xothique" map that will include bits that Carter missed as well as "creative extrapolations" based on the Zothique cycle.
