Faltorn, capital of the Dragon's Tail

This map started as a practice piece for city maps, but I eventually decided to use it for the city of Faltorn as featured in my upcoming fantasy cycle, the War of Blood and Darkness.


Faltorn is a medium-sized city on the eastern shore of the Dragon's Tail, the peninsula in the south of the map of Aran & Ilan. It is the capital of the Grand Duchy of the same name, and has managed to survive only because of an intricate balancing act between the ever-warring giants of the northern kingdoms. Whether it will continue to do so is something you'll have to find out in the books—when they finally get published!
