The Geography of Elephant
Most of the adventuring that takes
place on Elephant Mud occurs within the bounds of the Western Realms; a large
temperate land mass in the northern hemisphere of the planet. Although there
are many islands off of the coast and several other planes of existence are
known to exist, to most players the 'known world' centres around the town
of Drakenwood, which is situated in a cove on the south shore of the Realms.
It is from here that the players set forth daily to bring justice to the foul
creatures that stalk the nearby hills and forests and to here that they come
again to rest from their trials.
Drakenwood is by
no means the only population centre in the Realms. Nearby, nestling in the Withered Peak
mountains lies Mirrortown and equally close can be found the village of Aldersford. Were
you to travel north you would soon find yourself within the bounds of the Duchies of
Miathorn and Alforpia. Travel east and if you are unlucky you may stumble upon the cursed
remains of Sparsis. Even further away, many weeks' travel for all but the dedicated
horseman, lie the boundaries of the warring Kingdoms of Valena and Aerdy.

For reference, there are a couple of things to note in the World Map
The first is that without the
navigational skills of both players and wizards alike, we would know
little of our home world. As more is discovered, more will be
Secondly, Elephant Mud would like to
offer our greatest thanks to a games company called 3DO.
Without their amazing game Heroes of Might and Magic 3, and the
extension pack available, we would not have spent on average 25 hours
a week playing obsessively, and calling it 'Humuna' for short. We also
would not have thought to use the Map Editor provided to create our
Ele Maps. We thank 3DO so very very much, and know our gaming lives
wouldn't be nearly as fulfilled without their talent.
