I have always loved drawing maps. When I was younger, for every story I wrote, there would typically be a map drawn for the setting. I was particularly inspired to do this, I think, by J.R.R. Tolkien’s amazingly detailed maps of Middle Earth. In my Tales from Niflheim series, many locations are spoken of and focused on. I thought it would be fun for you to see what I’ve been thinking in my head while writing! Without further ado, here is the map of the country Oban!
Oban is the country in which the first three novels in the Tales from Niflheim series take place. It is the second largest country on the Askell continent. In Night Bells, the primary city involved is New Kristiansand (which can be seen in the northern part of the country). Many of the cities on this map become very important in later novels.
I hope you enjoyed! Now, you have an idea of where places are if you’re reading through Night Bells!
