Western OZ - Commissioned Map by XianPryde Western OZ - Commissioned Map by XianPryde
New stories about Dorothy, Toto, and the wonderful land of OZ are what led to the creation of this map, commissioned by an author for his upcoming book. He has in mind unique and fascinating places not seen before in the published works of L. Frank Baum. This may be why the lands you see in this map won't fit right into any other maps of OZ you might come across. Or perhaps OZ has been changing over the decades. I like to think that the places you see above just slip right in between the existing, canonical regions we know so well.

Judging from the Mountains of Madness on top, it fits between Baum and Lovecraft... somehow!

That's quite possible! I don't know where the author got all of his interesting names. :-)

there's points of this I don't feel are right but I'll leave them alone since I don't know the new stories you are referring to

Yes, I don't know the new stories yet, either. The author has his own take on the characters and locations.

I love the style you used on this one.  Perfect for a fantasy map.  Well done.

Thank you very much. Each map I do has some new stylistic elements that I'm trying out. Sometimes I have to re-draw an area two or three times before I get a look that I'm satisfied with.
