I was recently approached by an Artist on Twitter @Owellow
He wanted to try Drawing a World Map, So I sent him My Photos of the Drawings I did of my Homebrew DESPA
He then created This;

CHAPTER TWO – Beyond The Southern Seas Of Despa
THE SOUTHERN SEA OF DESPA
The Dwarf Quartz returns after speaking to the Captain of the great sea vessel MORIATH, the waters are a bit rough, but this would only be the beginning of a 14 day voyage.
Ornhawk sits alone, his hood still over his Drow visage, and carves at a dark piece of wood.
Symayah, her short blond hair, but long bangs over her face, peers through deep blue eyes at the curious Ranger.
“I’m sorry I didn’t introduce myself Ornhawk, we were in a bit of a hurry… I am Quarts, Paladin of North Protmey,” speaks the Dwarf loudly.
“And this here is Symayah, of the Orange Light Order,” with this he gestures towards the young girl, “She will be our Cleric on our quest…”.
Neither Ornhawk nor Symayah speak, but they do meet gaze for a moment.
“Alright, I hate sea travel, so I’m going below to see just how many hours of this two week journey I can sleep through,” and with this Quartz was gone.
Several moments of silence went by before Ornhawk finally spoke, “You have questions, ask them…”.
“I wonder why you’re not lowering your hood… I mean, I know about the Drow… But, you’re different, right?”.
With this Ornhawk lowered his hood to display his sharply elven features, black skin and blue white hair.
His eyes a golden color.
With this several deck hands seem to become uncomfortable, and awkward, but go about their work.
“Words don’t carry much weight in this world… I am Drow, and it is indeed wise that these men fear my kind,” spoke Ornhawk who continued working on his wood.
“But I must say, I’ve never traveled with the likes of a Paladin… Shocked that he reached out, and for that matter, found me,” he finished.
“He speaks very highly of what you did at WADWHORT village,” she replies, starting to relax for the first time in his company.
With this Ornhawk’s woodwork suddenly freezes… Then continues.
“Well… We are in a small world,” he added.
“I know you’re there Rogue,” spoke Ornhawk suddenly, without looking up.
Into the light suddenly appears a raven haired girl with a scar across her face, darkly clad, startling Symayah, “Just observing.”
“Do you like what you see?” asks Ornhawk.
“Who am I to judge a Drow… I’ve done many things one might consider… dark,” the Rogue girl responded.
“Are you MINAYA? Our Rogue?” spoke Symayah nervously, but hopeful.
“Maybe…” she responded, taking a large bite out of an apple, then tossing the other half towards Ornhawk who in one brisk movement knocks the apple out of the air, and draws his sabre…
…”Call me MIN,” spoke the Rogue as she backed back into the shadows.

CHAPTER ONE – The Quest For Frost Rhealm
DESPA – DAY 1
The SOUTHERN PORT OF DESPA, known as much for its’ FOUR KINGS TAVERN, and the Travelers who pass through it to break from their long voyages in the Southern Sea, as it is for the great Merchants who did their business there…. But more than that, as a meeting place for Adventurers not necessarily from Despa, but other Lands, who come together in the name of Adventure, both for treasure, and cause
Such is the case for Ornhawk, a Renegade Drow, and Ranger… Who finds himself in the unlikely place of ‘Four Kings Tavern’, awaiting a Paladin whose reached out to him.
His dark blue hood drawn to cover his face & black skin, sure to draw hostility at every turn…
But the Paladin’s letter intrigued Ornhawk, and so he came.
“Ornhawk… My name is QUARTZ, and I am a Paladin of North Protmey… We are gathering a Party of 8 able Adventurers to travel to the Ice Wastelands of VIVE, our destination being FROST RHEALM, in the Mountains of THE TRIGON.
Our goal, to capture the mysterious ‘BLUE PHOENIX’ , an item told to bare great power.
“We need a Second Ranger… Our First is a Human named A’ro, perhaps you’ve heard of him, who we will acquire after our rendezvous with you… Should you agree to this meeting.
The location of said meeting will be in ‘The Four Kings’ Tavern in the Southern Port of Despa.
I realize for you to leave the Dark Forest of SCAE’HM puts you at significant risk, do to your betrayal to your kind…
But I believe in what you’ve done, and I reach out a hand of trust and faith to you in hopes that you reply, and/or joins us.
Yours Truly, ‘Quartz Von Rictall Smaere’
PALADIN OF NORTH PROTMEY”
“You must be Ornhawk… The Ranger, right?” came a gruffly voice.
Ornhawk looked up from his wine to see a fair skinned, dark brown haired Dwarf in White Gold Armour.
“I am,” replied Ornhawk.
“Well, we best be on our way, we have more Party members to gather, it will be night soon, which I know your kind prefer to travel in…” he spoke plainly.
Ornhawk wasn’t sure what to make of the Dwarf… He was right, the Drow despise the light, but still… Why would a Paladin trust the company of a Drow.
Outside waiting with three horses, was SYMAYAH, a young female Cleric, who seemed timid, but nodded at Ornhawk anyway as he mounted his chestnut colored horse.
Quartz rode a black War Horse, and Symayah a white stallion.
“Our ship leaves soon, YAH!” hollered the Dwarf, and the three of them were off to catch it!
During My DORAGONS DOMAIN Vlogs On HOMEBREWS, I Created The Land Of DESPA.
Part Of That Process Was Determining The Terrain Of Each Territory, Then Writing A # In Each.
I Then Created A List In A Notebook Of The Corresponding #’s, And Determined What Was In Each Territory.
Much Of This Was Done Ramdomly, But I Also Made Some Choices On My Own Sometimes, Depending On The Roll.
For Instance, In Forests If I Didn’t Roll Something Really All That Story Inspiring (Such As Wild Boar), I’d Also Roll Against This ‘Elf’ List, To Add Elves To The Territory.
As I Spoke Before, ‘Wood Elves’ Primarily Found In The ‘Woods’ Of Despa, As Opposed To The Forests.
Bellow Is Basically What I Rolled For The Different Territories Of Despa.
I Will Provide Photos Of The Map Of Despa At The Bottom!
