*Per the request in the comments, I have fixed the map with a larger font. It kinda crowds the main continent, but hopefully that's forgivable. The white labels are oceans/waterways, while the black is terrain features/homelands. I removed the red equator line (it really crowded things) but it would run just above the Torongo and Olivos lettering.
It was a trial/experimental world where I was trying a few new (to me) things. There were many races of elves and they were almost constantly at war with each other. Humans of the Mediterranean-like Arman Empire had infrequent contact with the elves of the mainland, and those instances were touch and go. The Coldborn were an ancient race of "frost giants" - picture them as if ice age humans were much larger, like the mega-fauna of the era - something like 18 feet tall with broad bodies and powerful limbs. They were most docile until encroached upon by elves from the western forests and barbaric orcs from the south. Now they hate all outsiders.
Because the orcs could never defeat the Coldborn in their chilly home territory, they instead turned their evil intentions toward easier prey....humans. The Sumaka are nomadic, fierce fighters and thus were difficult to locate and raid upon. When they were caught, they were brutally killed or taken as slaves - a fate worse than death. The west humans, who would become the Armans, fled the threat from the east and left their homes in the steppes to make a new life in the lush coastal lands. They founded the empire and were in a golden age of prosperous trade and discovery.
And that's where it stopped. I had figured trade routes, climate zones, ocean currents, and even started crafting a Latin based language for the Arman Empire. But I got bogged down in the micro-detailing and lost the flavor of the world on a macro scale. I think I just had too much going on. Fortunately, because I had such developed ideas of various races, it was very easy to take them in patches and transplant them to other words. Oh joyous day! I love when it works out like that! Now I just have to remain conscious of "over crowding" again. Not everything fits all the time.
