About a month ago, I was approached by the creator of Map Chart, a website that allows you to create your own map by color coding regions. It's a really cool application that includes all sorts of modern and historical maps for you to modify, and is now branching into fantasy maps.
Together, we assembled a Tamrielic regions map for you guys to make your own.
Check it out here: mapchart.net/tamriel.html
The main continent, province shapes, and cities come from the Anthology map. As such, it represents Tamriel at the end of the 3rd era. Since there is no official map of region breakdowns, I extrapolated them from political and geological areas in the games. Here's how it breaks down:
- Blue = based on ingame divisions
- Red = made up by me.
Cyrodiil: Although we have the names of the counties, we don't know where their borders lie. I approximated them as best I could, and added some geological areas to keep the sizes consistent.
Vvardenfell: Based on the landscape divisions in TES3.
Mainland Morrowind: Based on ESO where available, though skewed to match the Anthology map borders.
Black Marsh: I outlined Shadowfen and Murkmire from ESO, and guessed at the rest based on the major cities in the province.
Elsweyr: The Reaper's March section in the east is from ESO, while the rest is based on an alpha map. At first, I divided this into just Reaper's March, Norther, and Southern Elsweyr, but that made this province have far fewer subdivisions than the rest.
Summerset: There was no info on this one, so I filled it in based on major cities.
High Rock: ESO.
Hammerfell: ESO, with the rest filled in based on remaining cities.
Skyrim: Shows the nine Holds, based on the map in TES5.
