OP  8/27/13 9:28:37 AM#1

Want to first say (before I am attacked in anyway) I was inspired to do this by eqnextfans.com and there wonderful dissection of the map they did. Here is the link: http://www.eqnextfans.com/articles/25336-dissecting-the-everquest-next-map (I tried posting there but unfortunately couldn't get my images to work).

[Edit] And figured out how to post on their forums lol. Derp :-(

 

Secondly, this is my crude interpretation of the lore in the new history of EQN that we know of so far. My educated guess for the locations of places came from SOE videos, the two e-books and similar sources. I have noticed small errors within the e-books such as cardinal directions being confused and such, so I have taken those into account and every way I look at the map provided (so far), it doesn't add up to those given errors. However, I could be completely wrong and overlooking something major/minor. That said, please give feedback, draw your own map, and correct me.

I do have a list of (chaotic) notes I made while researching that could be for a fun look through if any of you want to see them (major spoilers though!). I don't know how to create a post with a large amount of text and keep it hidden so it doesn't blow up your window with spam (same with these images woofa!). Anyways, enjoy the maps.

 

I am new to images on the forums so here is a link to photo bucket for them if they don't work on here.

http://s941.photobucket.com/user/SFF2000/library/?sort=3&page=1

 

[Edit] After posting, saw that you may have to use the horizontal scrolls bars to see full images.

 

[Edit 8/28/2013]

Of course to my dismay (and from helpful posters) I found that this map is but of a "sample continent". So this could be Antonica, it could be a different map or it could be Amaril or not at all.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xr3yhrXo9cg - Just Past the 2:10 min marker.

My only conclusion that this would be Amaril is from comparing maps of EQ 1, EQ 2 and EQOA online adventures. And just for fun this post on EQNext Fans website about lore and the name changing. To sum it up, it talks about the names changes Tunare, Antonica and Amaril due to the gods of the world. Still a great read if you have the time.

I have been lead to believe that ashfang is the dirt area to the north east.  Due to the very rocky and uneven surface.  Are you sure ashfang is in the south west?

I'm keenly interested in learning the ever quest lore in preparation for ever quest next..thank you for posting this.

Pity they arn't keeping continuity with the previous lore makes things super harder learn.

If anyone else has any good resources or anything worthwhile learning please let me know :)

I was under the understanding that was just a continent they showed and not an actual representation of any area in EQNext.

IE...the game world will not look like that.

I came to the conclusion that Ashfang was to the south west, because the fly throughs at the reveal showed the Feerott and Ashfang are connected. Due to lore and the map I found the Feerott to be at the given location.

Well I know I am not the best when it comes to editing images (so I could have made the map worse with those blobs on it) and this is just early info subject to change with SOE. Were you hoping that all of the world was procedurally generated? I think they need to make some sense of the top layer for nostalgia reasons.

I haven't head anything like it, but this is just the first map they have shown us and everything is subject to change of course (and I could be completely wrong in the end). I know however that the first continent is going to be called Amaril (Antonica).

Appreciate it first off. :-)

 

Second, they had to start over fresh. This makes it a lot easier and the lore from EQ II and EQ I there is a ton of. Imagine having to recreate all of that and make sure you are right in the next game you create. They do have people from the old games however for the lore so I am sure there will be similar nostalgia lore. I think their Star Trek example was perfect enough to explain their philosophy. Also look at EQ II, the world is pretty much underwater, can't move forward or expand on that world.

na not at all, i mean after all, the everquest world looks like that...just saying by dividing the regions they could have been a bit more accurate and authentic...look for example at the warhammer world. It does also include all different types of climate but it doesnt feel generic or artificial.

     I think the map looks fine so far.. I don't find it  artificial at all, especially considering how our west coast / Rocky mnts looks like from space..  We have Nevada desert, California palms, Oregon forest and Colorado Mnts, along with Grand Canyon all within 1 time zone..  The trick will be how they do transition moving from one zone to the other..

Omoshiroi!

So, I only know Norrath in the variant of Everquest 2, where everything was scattered into islands. It is... weird for me to see it all now connected as one continent. ^^

I know only some of it from EQ2. But it does look plausible, the first image.

A forum is a place where people can discuss about different opinions. So what I don't get is, how people react offended when they come to a forum and then find... well different opinions. If a different opinion offends you, what are you even doing here?

Ahh more organic. Hmm, maybe the EQN planet is on a different tilt/axis though lol. Hopefully it will feel organic once your inside the world. Transitioning through biomes in Minecraft doesn't make a whole lot of sense when you see jungle trees next to snow...it would be cool to see jungle like trees with snow lol (ex: Crysis).

@Sanshi44

I have seen that one before, it seems pretty well put together. Only thing we are lacking is the proof for the EQN world. I cannot wait for more lore, going to keep updating my map as it comes out.

 

[Edit]

I would make one change to the map you provided. To move Grobb to the Feerott. I remember how close the ogre and troll city were before, but I think with EQN it is going to be a much larger world and much different. If I had to guess the elf races are going to be combined and only look different from character creation and roleplaying. Atleast my guess for wood elf and high elf. It seems dark elf will be a different playable race atleast. And I really hope I am wrong. Would love the playable races from EQ to be in the game and separate from each other not just by looks but by stats as well.

To say the least! When I was putting together my map I was looking at EQ1, EQ2, EQOA and EQN. Its really cool seeing the difference, but EQ 2 should of had pirate classes or sea warfare, because that world was all water lol. I got two characters in EQ II (didn't get to high level content, only lv30ish), so correct me if there is indeed sea warfare :-).

I never made the conclusion that the forest in the ashfang video was indeed Feerott.  At first, after I read the lore, that the Greenblood River could be the small river coming from the mountains on the right of the map, running west to east.  However, I checked again and now do agree with you.  The lore says:

  • The Greenblood flowed from northeast to southwest, cutting through the city. The majority of the [Quin’Sari] city sat to the east of the [Greenblood] river, leaving only about a third on the western side.

Knowing this, the only river that we see that could run east to west is the river you pointed out, coming down from the mountains.  The rest can be inferred from here, that ashfang is indeed in the south west.  

I am not so sure about the feerott though, how do we know that the forest in the ashfang video is feerott?

To be clear, I do believe Feerott is in that location, I'd just like to be able to confirm it in some way.  Everything has pointed to that forest being in that area of the world.

Isn't that the example landmass used to discuss Landmark and not the actual game map?

 

Not sure that is the official landmass that will be used but without concrete proof either way might as well keep guessing.

What he said was that was not Antonica. It could mean that continent is not in the world, or that is another continent in the world.
