In case if it is not obvious enough,I traced in game icon of a globe (presumably of Eora itself). Because of a heavy pixelation this mockup is in no way geographically correct in details (hense why I call it interpretation). Still I hope it can give you some shape of the world we all love and play.

 

On the drawing you can see the Sun,two moons - Ondra's Beloved and The Black Runner plus the third,extinct one called err...Abydon's Folly,Godhammer 0.5,Celestial Spoiler Supreme..? (Your own names are welcome!) Oh and Eora ofcourse.

 

So all of this said and done,can you find Free Palatinate of Dyrwood?

Just my guess but pretty sure this is just some icon one of their junior graphic artists came up with and not the actual world Eora.

If they go with it then fine but their creative potential shouldn't get locked away because some guy on the net thought the icon was the real thing.

I do not imply that this is an actual representation at all. This is just an attempt to imagine the planet with the closest visual thing I could find to a hint.

The map does not seem so bad

White that wends as a far south antarctica.
Living lands in the north...

The only problem I have with the idea is that it looks like the actual world map with slight tweaks.  I would rather their world map just be their own thing.

There's not a lot you can really do with a map of an earth-like planet. There's going to be bits that are not water and then there are going to be bits which are water. Some bits will be of different color than other bits. ... That is all. Based on what we've seen in-game, Eora most likely is a spherical world as opposed to a cosmic turtle ridden by elephants or something along those lines, so there's jut not much space for creativity there (unless you want continents to look like little animals)

I recall in one of the Q&A Livestreams, the reason they haven't released any sort of world map is because they don't want to commit to anything yet. Or something to that effect. Building an entire plant is a difficult task.

Someone posed the idea of a 'fake' work map, a map of what characters in game think they world looks like.

So

There is that.
