Is there a map of Deadfire Archipelago?


Recommended Posts

Oh, well... darn!

I thought it was weird cus there's not many islands in the South :p

I'm wondering if there'll be any Pearl Coast areas in Deadfire (read something about Pirates on or from the Pearl Coast, don't remember which)

Different climates is certainly a possibility. According to JE Sawyer the Deadfire Archipelago is massive, stretching from the island of Naasitaq near the White that Wends (South Pole) all the way to the equator. Although all the concepts shown thus far have been of tropical regions so they're probably focusing on the areas closer to the equator.

Having a map of "known" Eora would be awesome, agree do I. With all of their fantastic artists, one would think they would have already had one they are building on/off of, so blurring out what they want hidden, and/or is tentative/undecided should be easy, believe do I.

The team has said they won't be producing a full map, so that design decisions don't have to be nailed down early on. That way people can grow the world without contradicting what we know. So the best you can get is a loose image in your head where relevant states and nations might be. But the rest is a fog.

Some time ago I posted this somewhere here already, but check it out if you want to have a notion what the world MAYBE looks like. I made this according to various sources from the web (Pillars wiki, Josh Sawyer blog, etc.): https://forums.obsidian.net/uploads/monthly_02_2017/post-52304-0-45324700-1486033731.png

 

 

Because you beat Obs to it, this is now my canon.

 

I'm pretty smug proud of myself because of this :) (https://forums.obsidian.net/topic/91980-list-of-poe1-inconsistent-stuff/?p=1911820)

*Sigh* Pillars is the type of game where I would really enjoy a super thick manual (like in the good old days) including lore, a map, and detailed descriptions of each class etc. I suppose wikis fill that role these days, but the Pillars wiki isn't actually that detailed at the moment.

Devs have intentionally not published a world map of the game. It leaves them room to do whatever they want in the future, they say.

I myself would love to see an official detailed world map though :biggrin:

 

I still they could - keeping in mind that this is early renaissance days - at least make a map of known continents with the large areas (Aedyr, Old Vailia, the Eastern Reach, Rauatai, Deadfire archipelago, The Living Lands and the White that Wends) placed corresponding to perhaps half a globe and then point out that people haven't circumvented the globe yet so there are large unexplored areas. We know that both the north and south pole are explored, but perhaps there are great seas to the west and east nobody has been able to cross, leaving room for exploration of new territory.

 

I guess the Paradox game part of me just really would like a more complete map of the world to gain a better feeling with the story. As it stands it seems like the 'old empires' control their entire continents, but that might be a simplification too.

You can sorta see the cloth map mockup on the images that they've put out for the physical editions, like this.  

 

Just a placeholder, probably.

 

Though, of course, in a game about exploration, the world map is potentially a massive spoiler in and of itself.

 

And yet there is a reward of a detailed Deadfire map in the Ultimate Digital FIG version of the game.

Sawyer said at one point, that he isn't expanding on the world, and lore too much on purpose. It would just narrow the creativity of future installments in the IP, and since he might not be heading those projects, it seems like the right call to make.

Is there a source that puts Deadfire to the east of the Eastern Reach - I was under the impression it was to the south and west, closer to Old Vailia (with a much larger southern ocean).

 

Shouldn't Rauatai be nearer Deadfire, also - possibly to the east, where you have put Deadfire?

Everyone knows Science Fiction is really cool. You know what PoE really needs? Spaceships! There isn't any game that wouldn't be improved by a space combat minigame. Adding one to PoE would send sales skyrocketing, and ensure the game was remembered for all time!!!!!

"The Deadfire, when we first conceived of it, I just thought it would be cool to have at the eastern edge of the known world, at least in this part of the world, the eastern edge of the known world is this huge chain of islands mostly made up of dormant volcanoes, which is where the name Deadfire comes from."

"The Great Kingdom of Rauatai is an aumaua nation in the Rauatai Gulf north of Ixamitl Plains."

"A powerful kingdom established by conquest centuries ago, Rauatai is a major naval power on the shores of the north-eastern continent."

There's also a pdf of the guidebook, and the if you read the first guidebook before playing the game, you could guess half the plot points in advance. :p

Interesting that Rauatai is a nation, NOT a landmass. The wording there could even have the Rauatai gulf as part of the same continental landmass as the Eastern Reach and Ixamitl.

 

 

 

This post from Sawyer is the one that puts Deadfire to the south:

"- Deadfire Archipelago - Quite a ways south of the Dyrwood, a wide archipelago of small volcanic island nations.  Naasitaq, home of many boreal dwarves and aumaua, is the biggest and most stable nation around.  Various nations and empires fight over the islands, to the east of which are sea monsters that invariably annihilate any ships that attempt to go exploring (many of them dwarven)." https://forums.obsidian.net/topic/64747-issues-with-npcitem-surveys/page-2?do=findComment&comment=1400302
