    Here's the biome map Mk 1. I'm not a climatologist, but I think this is good enough to get the basic gist of it. We can always edit it later on.
    I was a little stumped with the big archipelligo, so I left that blank. collaborative project biomes.png

    Wow, this is really nice. I think you pretty much got it spot on.

    Awesome work! Do you think you can pass out the file to the group so we can have a spin round and have a look? I'd like to help too, the scale would be much helpful for me.

    Should we create a name for this world?

    I'm not sure how to save the file, but if you have google earth you can add overlay this image world map.png
    and adjust the size of it a bit.

    You have to have the google earth program installed. Then you just click "add overlay image" at the top and upload what ever you want. Its pretty handy but the image sometimes gets distorted a bit.

    Looks cool. I think the taiga should be less extensive along some of the southern coastlines. For the big archipelago, it should be a mix of Mediterranean and forest.

    I suggest Croatoa.

    I like that. Sounds a bit familiar. I normally wait to name the world when I'm a bit further into worldbuilding myself.
    Jahnia?

    What does everyone think of these fantasy elements:
    • A lost civilization that built roads and (by now ruined) aqueducts on the major continents before the "main" civilizations appear. Most nations claim continuity from this almost mythical empire for legitimacy, but they view it in different ways as its knowledge is corrupted over time.
    • Biblical longevity; people, especially prophets and kings, living 200, 400, 800 years.
    • Cryptid-like monsters that live on the far away islands. Not all the same species, but sort of individual, semi-godlike creatures akin to Greek mythology. They don't play a huge role in the development of civilization, but cause certain crises on the frontiers of settlement.
