Shimmering Lands 2300 BC, 8 miles per hexby John Calvin
Map of the Shimmering Lands, 8 miles per hex by John Calvin, March 2009 (Work In Progress)
This map of the Shimmering Lands in 2300 BC covers areas of current day (1000 AC) Ethengar, Rockhome, Northern Reaches, Darokin, and Ylaruam, as well as lands that sunk beneath the sea in 1700 BC.

Notes on Shimmering Lands
- I have placed the land bridge from Brun to the Island of Dawn going through (and incorporating) Ostland. Other maps have placed this land bridge in different locations, but after studying the terrain extensively, this is the location that makes the most sense to me.
To Do List
Add Kogolor settlements to the map (most likely in the Rockhome region) once their history is integrated with the Shimmering Lands timeline.
- Continue to name all major geographical features.
