From publisher blurb:
Stormbringer: Atlas of the Young Kingdoms Vol. 1
The Northern Continent
Great Imperial Melniboné lay swollen across the world. Her fingers wound through the planes of the multiverse a hundred times.
Among the earthly slaves of the great Melniboné were grunting ape-men who ploughed and harvested the fields and vineyards.
When the ape-men changed, they challenged their betters, and won against them. New kingdoms were gathered, this time by human hands.
The Atlas of the Young Kingdoms: The Northern Continent discusses the Sighing Desert, the Weeping Waste, heavenly Tanelorn, horrible Nadsokor (the kingdom of beggars), the ancient evil of Org, and the Forest of Troos, free-trading and progressive Ilmiora, and the Lawful hell of dying Vilmir. We learn the origin of the Young Kingdoms and the great rebellion of Vil Valario, the ways of the people, histories, products, and attitudes, customs and holidays, provinces and towns, and important leaders. There are plot ideas and story seeds, scores of illustrations, full-page national and regional maps, city plans, a Lormyrian and a Melnibonéan calendar, and an index.
