@ Lady N
I agree it is a little misshapen maybe. There are maps of pyandonea I think but they are not size relative to the other established landmasses. other than that. Do we even have ANY specific information on akavirs size or even shape and topography....

@ Bibliopheal
It depends on what you recognize as canon. Personally, I recognize any information released both in game and by micheal Kirkbride. Basically anything that is established as true by most of the TES world.

Perhaps you're unfamiliar with the Coda endeavor.

Check out the link Fiore posted above. All the maps of Pyandonea that I am aware of build off Arthmodeus' interpretation of a 10 pixel landmass. I think both its size and shape are very, very generous given the nature of the Maormer.

Click on the map Pilaf linked. That should explain everything.

You are all wrong yet all right for nirn is not this but is. If you truly think of it the elder scrolls are made outside and inside existence, time, and space meaning that they could be anything even the nereverine, so nirn is not a solid place,  it could be a planet or it could be a human. The only thing certain about the elder scrolls is that the elder scrolls are the only thing and nothing.

All wrong yet all right nirn is nirn but is not like the elder scrolls are made in existence, time, and space but aren't. who know nirn could be a planet in one path of everything and nothing and in the next it could be a dog. the nerevarine and the dovahkin maybe heros or they may be destroyers. the dwemer may be lost or they are just transformed into a pure thing or nothing like chimer into dunmer.

In A Pocket Guide to the Empire First Edition is states that Tamriel is the largest known continent on Nirn.

"The Empire stretches across Tamriel, the largest known continent of the World. To the north of Tamriel is Atmora, from whence the Men of the World came. To the west is Yokuda, the lost native land of the Redguards. To the east is Akavir, whose armies invaded Tamriel in the previous era. To the south all is mystery and the whisper of a lost Elven homeland."

Hello. I am the author of the map that was posted here.

 

TL;DR: This map is not canon, most of it is fan fiction.

 

First of all - this map is outdated :) I have recently updated it a few days ago.

Secondly, when this map was never intended to be 100% canon. We don't have any idea whatsoever what any land looks like except Tamriel and Yokuda (I don't even remember if Yokuda's shapes are canon, it was so long ago when I made it). Actually, this is the reason why I never uploaded it anywhere other than DeviantArt. Recently I found out that quite a lot of people use it even in Youtube videos about lore - which is ok as long as they take it for what it is - a fan's interpretation, a.k.a non-canon.

Akavir is simply my interpretation - and it's not going to stay, I plan on changing it completely. (When? No idea.)

Aldmeris - I just randomly generated a landmass and put it there. Same goes for everything east of Tameriel actually.

Pyandonea is based on some fan fiction that was supposed to become a mod for Oblivion back in the day, and on some sprite from Elder Scrolls Daggerfall.

The shape of Tamriel: This one is changing constantly, even in official sources. I don't even know which one is correct anymore. I already started updating the map with how it looks in ESO as this is the latest official iteration, but who knows how it is going to look next.

Thank you for informing us! Yokuda's map has not appeared in any official sources, if I recall correctly, so there is no canon version of it. I think only Tamriel is well known.
