Revision as of 18:42, February 23, 2019

There is not any canon map of the Continent provided in the novels. Numerous fans and adaptations attempted at making their own, and were said by Andrzej Sapkowski to be "more or less correct". The author himself has a map based on Stanislav Komárek`s variant which he later improved, but he decided not to publish it because the world is constantly evolving in his mind.

Polish website

The very first maps of the Continent were created by editors of the author's Polish website. Several variants were made, with the earliest ones having such unusual features as Gelibol located in Nazair. The final version were created around the time Baptism of Fire was released and was later used in Wiedźmin: Gra Wyobraźni. A heavily modified variant of this map were created for 2nd Edition of Wiedźmin: Gra Wyobraźni.

Stanislav Komárek

A different approach was taken by Stanislav Komárek, Sapkowski's translator and associate. Based on the author's notes it was said to be the more faithful, but still had some mistakes (or, rather, elements which were later changed by Sapkowski during writing of the Saga).

CD Projekt's The Witcher franchise

The map for The witcher game series were created in a joint work of Arkadia's map creators and editors of early Polish Wiki, with a few advices of Andrzej Sapkowski himself.

Known map errors

Geographic borders

A discussion of the exact geographic borders and other locations can be found on this page.

Netflix's The Witcher TV series

The newest official attempt at map was created by a fan collaborating with Netflix and Bagiński and spoiled by Lauren Hissrich in her tweet. Despite Sapkowski's collaboration on the series, it was not consulted with him.
