Rivers and Lakes were made, but…

…no pictures today because I made a muck up of trying to make the long rivers more curvy. <.<

Tomorrow I will trace the map and start clean with shiny new curvy rivers.

And some lakes, preferably ones that don’t look like a troll-head. Those old troll dolls with all the hair.

I keep forgetting you don’t need visible obvious rivers feeding into a lake (visible on a continent-scale map, that is). It could all be streams.

Pictures tomorrow!

(pre-curvied drawings can be shown here – https://twitter.com/lynthornealder/status/722939920877273088 – that at least decide placement of the rivers in broad scale)

Edit (again): Please ignore the awful scribbles that are the rivers. This is for basic city and border placement.

Red is our story country, at least the beginning of it. Blue is Second Country and spills onto the large island below and 1/5 of the small islands. Third country is the other small islands and the last 2 largish islands. (Islands not visible on this map)

  1. I keep forgetting you don’t need visible obvious rivers feeding into a lake (visible on a continent-scale map, that is). It could all be streams. Even extremely large lakes can be fed entirely by numerous small rivers and streams. The biggest lake I know of that qualifies that way is Lake Superior, which has few tributaries that appear even on maps of just the lake. The outflow river is huge, but the inflows aren’t.

    • I did not know that about Superior! I mean, Ontario is part of the chain, so it’s fed from Erie, etc. But the finger lakes are mostly fed from creeks and streams.
