Before Map

Before Map

This map shows the lay of the land before a fire destroys the Village of Auld.

In the north, sunflowers bloom on a faraway hillside, while to the south—a vineyard borders lavender fields and the home of Lucy—the Village of Auld. In the east, beyond a high wall of poplar trees, the Queen’s humble abode—Cracklewood Cottage looks over roses, and a stream (reservoir), to whom all lay claim, but none should own. To the west, the Stoneboy lies in the cool of the Shady Glade, while further west again, the Arum King lurks in the wasteland habitat below.

After Map

After Map

This map shows the lay of the land after the fire has destroyed the Village of Auld, and the village rebuilt—as the Topiary City.

In the north, the sunflowers have gone to seed, while to the south, the Topiary City stands in place of the village; the Stoneboy has gone form the Glade, and beyond the high wall of tress, a maze protects a palace - the Pillared Palace. From the palace, Santolina reigns over her reservoir, geometrically pruned plants (topiaries), mad mascots, and the Topiarian people who were once - the people of the Village of Auld.
