The Legendary Planet Kickstarter from Legendary Games is over $30,000 with a month to go, and today we started previewing maps from the first planet the PCs visit in the adventure path, which got me thinking about how we do maps in fantasy.
When you're creating a fantasy world, how important is a map of the WHOLE planet? The standard is just a regional or continental map, but I wonder: Have people seen settings where the whole planet is actually mapped?
The old Forgotten Realms Atlas is the only example I can think of, and maybe Krynn if the Taladas maps were complete. We've seen a lot of Golarion, but not the whole thing. Any others I'm missing (aside from games just set on Earth)?
