For some reason recently in my creative challenges and work shop stuff I've been revolving around this whole Dark Queen's Empire idea, so during one of my character challenges I had no idea how to describe her location so I just decided to come up with a really rough map of her world in about two hours. Also, I know that the abbreviation is supposed to be DQE, not DQR but I'm too lazy to erase, radda radda. I also tried to fill in land masses and water with colors but paint is evil and won't let me do the color dump correctly. ;__; Just know if it has blue lines/text within it or above/below it, it's a land-mass.

Have to re-learn some geology stuff. x__x) Bodies of Water Map (Please note that the rivers, lakes and seas pictured are only the largest/most significant ones.)
