Hand Drawn Digital Map
for MMO Game

Possibly the winner of the longest titled map I've made - the full title is Lockwood (Geographical Survey of Metastructural Incident 959A [Inclusion 1]).  This map depicts the inhabitable area in a post-apocalyptic MMO game. The blog for the game is: http://blog.appendixg.com/

The 'continent' itself is a landlocked area surrounded by an ocean of trash and refuse; basically a Waste Land. From the corners of the world, giant creatures called Monads slowly devour the world, literally devouring it into non-existence over the course of centuries. The world is largely primitive, though there are aspects of more modern times that have seeped into it. The most noticeable being the Chrysler Building, which appeared after the collapse of the fifth pillar, just before the arrival of the Monads, and heralded the coming of the Observer, who saved the world from immediate nullification but damned it to a slow death.

There were two versions of the map created - one labelled in "faux-coptic" using the Coptic44.ttf, created by Mr. Gary S. Dykes, the second over-labeled in English by later users of the map.

An unusual requirement was that the mapped area had to be based on North Sentinel Island, pre-tsunami.
