Map of the (Real) World

I saw this circulating around the internets.  It is an atlas with the etymological roots of names of real world places.  I love how evocative the names are.  You could easily scale this up and run a campaign or set a novel in our real world with these names and no one would ever know!




‘Steps of the Black One’.  ‘Island of Happiness’.  ‘Island of the Monkey God’.  ‘The Hidden Goddess’.

Tell me that doesn’t fit into any fantasy setting?
