Welcome to Zanth


It is best, when you really want to understand someone, to know where they come from. And while a treatise on the land of Zanth, with its 10,000 gods, 500 guilds, and numberless taverns pleasures would be beyond the scope of this or any study, it might be worthwhile to provide a glimpse of this city.

Now while Za'dar is the "Blade of Zir", his heart, as the hearts of all Zandir (expect perhaps the recalcitrant Zann) belongs to Zanth. Zanth has been called the Jewel of the West, but this saying is false. For if anything, Zanth is a whole heaping pile of jewels, cut and uncut, precious and semi-precious, magical and mundane, with a few rocks, teeth, bits of hair, a frightened snail, and at least one lump of coal mixed in. For as Conteraz said:
Zanth is everything to everyone, except, of course, when it's not

I could certainly say much more, but as more and better guides than mine are to come, I satisfy myself with these humble maps:

All of Zanth
District 1
District 2
District 3
District 4
District 5
District 6
District 7

I love your maps! Are these hand drawn? I love the detail and charm of them.

Thanks! They are hand drawn, but cleaned up in Photoshop. Also the coloring is Photoshop. Maps are a long-time passtime for me (like for most role-players). I'm very proud to say that some of my maps will be included with the Stranger Things RPG (http://mightyatom.blogspot.com/2005/08/rpg-innovations.html) when it's released.
