That looks awesome!

Two stream-related questions/comments:
1) Isn't there a stream running from Nexus Falls into the Arelith Forest?
2) I think the stream that runs through Burrowhome actually comes from the Forest of Despair, rather than Arelith Forest. It flows past Morghunn's lair then to Burrowhome.

@Lorkas:
1) Yeah, I did miss that one :) If I remember correctly, the stream is in the actual Nexus Falls map? So, closer to the falls than the bridge?

2) I'm not so sure (but I also get confused, because of all the variations over the years, and FL) but I thought there was a small river section in Morghunn's area that flows from the north and goes south a few tiles before turning east, where it flows through the Burrowhome area. That would suggest it flowed out of the Arelith Forest's southern edge. Am I remembering this correctly?

When we did FL, I took the time to route the river better from the Nexus Falls out to the sea by the troll caves. It actually meanders quite a lot through the Arelith Forest (on FL, and maybe eventually on Arelith)

You even drew the hilltop fortification in the Bramble with the bridges! Awesome!

I can't tell though from the small scale map. Is the dark patch within the gob fort?

The path that heads north on the west side of Burrowhome has a stream that crosses the bridge, and the map just west of Burrowhome is divided into a northern half and a southern half by the stream. There is a small branch of the stream that seems to flow from the north there, but then it pools into a large space in front of Morghunn's hideout, which is what made me think it flowed from that direction. The only slight inaccuracy with that stream then, is that the path actually crosses the stream to the north then crosses it again to the west.

The north stream flowing into Arelith forest is indeed on the Nexus Falls map (I think there's some floaty text there even). The map right below this is named "River Source" or something along those lines.

This map makes the sinking/absence of Kohlingen even more apparent! So cool!

Will you be able to incorporate the entire archipelago, Artos? Is the map transferrable to make a more "zoomed out" version of all the isles?

Please note, I edited the OP to reflect that you can now buy this! Woot! I purchased the very first one, and will gladly let you all know how it turned out when I receive it. Remember, all proceeds of this are directly linked to the server fund, so buying Arelith merch will ensure the server staying online forever, and ever, and ever, and ever...

Would it be possible to sell this as a poster as well as a T'shirt? That is something I'd be especaily interested in.

Yes. You should be able to select either the poster tab, or clothing tab, and order either (or both!) from there you can select sizes, etc. These tabs are all laid out just below the map graphic.

Try the "Prints and Cards" tab, and from there "Posters". You'll see all kinds of options from there. :) Let me know if you're not seeing it! Try clothing tab for shirts and stuff.

And yes, I bought the HUGE poster myself! Woo!

EDIT: If you buy the leggings, it looks like the "Ruins of the First Dwarves" will be right near the crotch area. SWEET!

EDIT EDIT: And Holy Shark, my order has been shipped already!

How much of the sale price actually makes its way back to the Arelith fund?

30%

I receive no personal profit from this whatsoever. We could jack the merch price up to get more money in the fund, but I don't think you guys should have to pay any more than you have to.

My money will soon be thrown at you for that, but on a related note, any plans on doing any other versions? I.E. UD/Baator/Prehistory? I need my walls to be plastered with arelith memorabilia.

Not really, but that doesn't mean it won't happen. I didn't really have any plans to make an Arelith map until we got snowed in.

I gotta say, making merchandise like this available to help pay for the server costs is a pretty smart move. But why stop there? We've got some really talented artists in the community. Maybe they can design a few posters and donate them to the server. Then you can sell those as well.

Somebody making a cool logo for Arelith would be great (Or just use the current one). Then you can go ahead and put that on t-shirts and stickers. I know I'd love to put an Arelith sticker on my gaming computer's case.

As for poster ideas, somebody could do some art on Benwick, Myon, Cordor etc. Those are things I'd like to have up on my walls.

I would shamelessly buy a t-shirt saying "How does this nerf clerics?" if I knew it was actually going to Arelith.

I love that idea. I would suggest a new thread for original art submissions for DEVs to select from to create more merch options. Original art only of course. Anything that's already out there could land us in trouble for copyright and trademark.
