This looks absolutely amazing. Nice work! As someone from the original fire nation in season one I kind of want to go back to my roots. Anyone want to start a fire based hellscape nation with me?

What sort of architecture did you have in mind? I really wanted to make a well fortified wall in a mountain pass somewhere.

I have a couple ideas actually. First, I plan on settling on the giant volcano in the hellscape. I am thinking of either making a multi-tiered fortress city surrounding the volcano, probably just sticking with a Gothic style. This city would probably be built with netherack and various types of stone.

Also, I was thinking about a poor industrialized city with shanties and factories surrounding the volcano. Seeing as the hellscape is high in valuable resources this could lead to an interesting story line of the ruling class exploiting others for profit. This could also develop into a multi tiered city with shanties outside the walls and more intricate buildings as they get closer to the top of the volcano. Could always mix in a bit of steampunk as well (create some zeppelin airships, etc).

I've been waiting for this since 2012. The map looks great, that trailer has me hyped, and I can hardly wait to dive into this world and start building things. I'm going to start refamiliarizing myself with Minecraft now. I think I chose Water way back when, so I'd best find a way to work with the new blocks found undersea...

I'm seriously excited. Between this and the localizations of Dragon Quest VII and VIII on the 3DS, 2016 is shaping up to be a fantastic year.
The glade sat untouched by war, its sweet redolance eclipsed only by the silence. The God's surely smiled upon this place once. Before long, the chaos wrought by the Nations would turn it to desolation, naught a fraction of its present glory surviving.

There isn't much in the way of water on this map, unfortunately, save for the underground lake.
