Cartographer’s unit!

So, this week’s blog post includes a Map…  and who doesn’t love an epic, old-fashioned map?  Pirate treasure, long-lost cities of gold, and the birthplace of dragons; maps are the key to adventure – if you’re an Avatar on a flying bison, a Straw-hat pirate crew looking for the Grand Line, or just an old ships’ cook trying to find your dead Captain’s stash, maps are the business.

The map in question today is a world map, and thankfully, we have Methuselah Jackson on hand to tell us a bit more about it!

“An old movie projector flickered to life, and the hand-held camera of Jasper Jackson drifted in and out of focus as he adjusted settings to capture the trembling images shining on the screen.

“This,” said Methuselah, “was our planet just prior to the ascendancy of Homo Terrae – the humans of earth.  In those early times, the Homo Sapiens, Homo Fey, and Homo Adeptus, shared the planet with numerous other varieties of humanity, and over the next two-hundred-and-fifty-thousand years, they would die out, leaving only the Fey, the Adepts and the regular humans behind.

If you look closely at the globe on the screen, you will see as it revolves, that it is somewhat different to the maps we see today.  It has three extra masses of land – all large enough to form significant nations.  The first was in the Pacific ocean, the Island of Mu, home to the first great kingdom of mankind, formed in the Fourth Age of Man, after the defeat of the Annunaki.

The second was found in the Indian ocean, the great island of Kumari Kandan, formed in the Fifth Great Age, headed by the Vedic god-kings, and finally – of course – the ancient island kingdom made famous by Plato, seated in the Atlantic ocean – The kingdom of Atlantis, destroyed at the end of the Sixth Age by the warring fallen in a battle over the Tufaahatan itself.

So this…” He pointed extravagantly towards the table, at the open double page in the Shakthuri tome, “is what our world map would look like if these ancient kingdoms were still with us today.” “

Thank you Methuselah for the intro, and I hope you all enjoy the map that shows the real history of the world as we know it!
