Writing, Again: Part VI - Mapping

You know me, I love to make maps.

Click here for the trilogy.

Readers of the trilogy, click on the JUMP for some details of the newest map.

There are a couple of scenes in Book Five wherein Tiberian soldiers are speaking and I don't want the other characters to know exactly what they're saying.

Liberos non video.

Ego feci.

Please, let me know how I did.

* - I didn't include the English because I want you to be able to figure it out.
