Thule In classical and medieval literature, ultima Thule (Latin "farthermost Thule") acquired a metaphorical meaning of any distant place located beyond the "borders of the known world".[5] By the Late Middle Ages and early modern period, the Greco-Roman Thule was often identified with the real Iceland or Greenland. Sometimes Ultima Thule was a Latin name for Greenland, when Thule was used for Iceland.[6] By the late 19th century, however, Thule was frequently identified with Norway.[7][8]

Hyperborea Area north of Thrace in Greek mythology In Greek mythology the Hyperboreans (Ancient Greek: Ὑπερβόρε(ι)οι, pronounced [hyperbóre(ː)ɔi̯]; Latin: Hyperborei) were a race of giants who lived "beyond the North Wind". The Greeks thought that Boreas, the god of the North Wind (one of the Anemoi, or "Winds") lived in Thrace, and therefore Hyperborea indicates that it is a region beyond Thrace. This land was supposed to be perfect, with the sun shining twenty-four hours a day, which to modern ears suggests a possible location within the Arctic Circle during the midnight sun-time of year.

Por favor, <a href=" Javascript</a>. </p><p> Medieval Fantasy City Generator by watabou This application generates a random medieval city layout of a requested size. The generation method is rather arbitrary, the goal is to produce a nice looking map, not an accurate model of a city. All the actions and options are accessible via the context menu. Polygon Map Generation demo The simplest way to explore the maps is to click Random repeatedly. Try the various Island Shape, Point Selection, and View options. Feel free to use these maps for any purpose, including commercial use. This is a map generator I wrote in 2010 for a game[4]; I’m not working on it anymore, but all the code is available so that you can download and modify it for your own needs. I also have an HTML5 version of mapgen2[5] that has slightly different features. In a shape number like 85882-8, 85882 chooses the overall island shape and 8 is the random number seed for the details (random points, noisy edges, rivers).

How a Map Can Save Your Story - By Tineke Bryson, Staff In our last post we tackled the intimidation many of us feel about creating a map for our novels. (Thanks, no thanks, J. R. R. Tolkien.) A list of various phantom islands recorded throughout history Phantom islands can generally be divided into three groups. Most of the phantom islands recorded through history were usually derived and marked according to the reports made by early ship captains and sailors, during their missions to explore new realms. Many of the phantom islands in this category were later revisited and proved to be non-existent, or mistaken for some already extant island. Mercator's Meru The search for a terrestial Eden or Paradise has forever eluded the grasp of most mortals yet some have succeeded or come very close to achieving this quest -or at least acquiring solid information about it. Men like Olaf Janssen(The Smoky God) and George William Emerson(Etidorpha) are two such individuals. A summary of their stories can be found in the Hollow Earth section of this site and their full stories are available on Rodney Cluff's Our Hollow Earth site.

Legendary Lands: Umberto Eco on the Greatest Maps of Imaginary Places and Why They Appeal to Us by Maria Popova “Often the object of a desire, when desire is transformed into hope, becomes more real than reality itself.” Celebrated Italian novelist, philosopher, essayist, literary critic, and list-lover Umberto Eco has had a long fascination with the symbolic and the metaphorical, extending all the way back to his vintage semiotic children’s books. Half a century later, he revisits the mesmerism of the metaphorical and the symbolic in The Book of Legendary Lands (public library) — an illustrated voyage into history’s greatest imaginary places, with all their fanciful inhabitants and odd customs, on scales as large as the mythic continent Atlantis and as small as the fictional location of Sherlock Holmes’s apartment.
