You can take the girl out the geology department …

Because I’ve decided to follow along with [dreamwidth.org profile] build_a_world, last night I busied myself drawing a rough map of one of my worlds. This quickly gets complicated, because I decide, right, this area of the world is quite volcanic, so there’s going to be a subduction zone right along here … and I know I want a massive mountain range here, so let’s make it a continental collision zone …

So my map is not just a map of the continents, but a map of the continental plates, complete with little arrows to show their direction of movement. If I decide to worry about the rest of the planet, I’m going to need to make a globe.
