looking for a map of wesnoth from 500 YW

Post by KunoNoOni » September 8th, 2009, 5:17 pm

If it is possible I was wondering if a map existed that would show wesnoth in the year 500 YW. Basically I want to know where the wars with the orcs occured. The current map in on the geography wiki is from 450 YW, and 50 years is a long time. I'm sure there were changes in those 50 years.

Considering the many thousands of years of history, I don't know if 50 years really is a high enough priority for someone to have made a map. If there were maps made for every 50 years, just to get to 500 YW you would need to make 10 maps.

I do see your point, so let me rephrase my question. Using the current map we have from 450 YW, where would the battles between wesnoth and the oprcs have taken place? Granted I could just make them up, but if there are known locations I'd rather use those.

In the year 501 their was a battle between Orcs and Wesnothians under Garard and Eldred at the Fords of Abez (I presume it is this war to which you are referring). This was where Eldred pulled his little coup and murdered his father and brothers, as shown in the Heir to the Throne intro. Link is here:

Should be somewhere in their.

Their are also some battles with orcs I believe in the campaign Liberty, which occurs around this time. I don't think their are any other established battles with orcs in this time frame.
