While going through a rigorous, terribly exhausting, and rather frightening emergency-cleaning of my room, I found a stack of old letters and scribblings from my childhood. The maps were there, along with a key that had me laughing aloud....I've grown up so much since then. Oh so much. Ah...those good old days...
My original country was named "Dremla"
Later we changed it to "Shatinia". I thought that was an epic and awesome name for a made-up country....for an eight-year-old.
Daniel's half of the map was written in a scrawling, stratchity hand which made it all that much more mysterious and therefore legit.
Here are the funniest of descriptions, complete with the childish spelling...
Leprocahn Lake: there are some pretty twisted characters there so beware. hint: always wear green.
elfboats: Very friendly, good place to rent boats if you are planning an ocean attack.
goblins cave: kind of dark, but the glitter of treasure lights it up. hint: if you're in need of money go here. (they stole most of it so chances are some of it was yours.)
Countess Vameerals Mansion: She loves red and black. She's pretty friendly. hints: if you don't like bats don't visit. Be careful what you drink.
witches woods: The witches some times get an attack of spells so check the magic forecast before you visit. Goblins have tunnels here.
