Regions of the Known Galaxy [WiP]
‘This is one of the few things I think I can show from the DarkConduit project, which continues apace but in secret; it’s a map of the galaxy, divided up into informal regions in homage to Star Wars. The regions have no relevance to play, but are an aspect of the lore. While the galaxy is actually split into sectors for gameplay reasons, I thought it likely that the game world’s inhabitants would name some of their (rather large) galactic neighbourhoods as well.
Many of these regions are named similarly to constellations, such as The Cradle and The Beacon; others bear more alien names, or names which suggest their makeup, as with The Core and The Furnace.
I’ve marked the map as a work in continuing progress, as while the content is probably sorted, I have yet to add some attractive frames. The legend is looking a little bit plain as well, but I intend to work on some symbols and an overall, decorative theme once the other maps in this series are finished.
