    True, but just filling home of The Sorceress and the ultimate power of the Elders, I dunno. Feels like there is more to it.

    That and built by Tytus for King Grayskull.

    My best guesses based on MOTUC bios and previous MOTU shows.

    Underground city of Tundaria Home of Wun-Dar.

    Eye of Zurcain Naturally formed tunnel in Mystic Mountains that serves as entrance to Andreenos and Avion (according to MYP Courage of Adam)

    Tar Swamp Dangerous swamp where Orko first appeared on Eternia.

    Mystic Mountains Mountain range that includes cities of Avion and Andreenos.

    Ocean of Gnarl It's an ocean, and it's gnarly.

    Vine Jungle A jungle that has a lot of...trees.

    Anwat Gar Island city where Sy-Klone guards the Legacy Stones.

    Former Location of the Hall of Wisdom Now a flea market.

    Village of Veridas Agriculture-based city, benefits from the Crystal of Prasinus (sp?) that magically enhances plant life. They grow honeyberries there that the Queen Andreeno really likes apparently.

    Eternos Palace Total dump, but some guy there is the king. And I thought we were an autonomous collection.

    Southern Plain A big plain in the not-North, East, or West.

    Orkas Island Island where Clawful's cousins hang out (may be their home in MOTUC), and where Man-At-Arms's mentor Dekker lives.

    Berserk Islands Where Beastman came from.

    Dunes of Doom Where Marzo was raised by evil wizards.

    Temple of Hordak Where Keldor was tuned into Skeletor by Hordak.

    Merman's Lair Probably where Merman keeps his fish men and the Crimson Pearl.

    Mount Barathrum Really big volcano in the Dark Hemisphere, possibly replaces Filmation's Mount Chrona as the largest on Eternia.

    Nicely done, there! I look forward to more maps as well...!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Is there more information that can be added to this thread? I feel this thread is almost as important as the bio thread and can run in conjuction with it

    I was hoping to see more details about the locations on the map, i.e what episodes they feature in, what location certain characters orginated from, etc.

    Right, I'll add the information I remember offhand. I'll offer more later.

    Tar Swamp - The place where Orko entered Eternia's dimension. In the Filmation episode Creatures from the Tar Swamp, this site has many prehistoric monsters preserved in the depths of the marsh. In the MYP episode Lessons, the swamp is infested with Swamp Hoppers, ferocious amphibians.

    Mystic Mountains - In the MYP series, the Mystic mountains is the location of both Andreenos and Avion.

    Vine Jungle - In the original minicomic He-Man and the Power Sword, He-Man came from a tribe in the Vine Jungle and was a blonde barbarian. This was later referenced in the DC Mini-series where Prince Adam said he had been adopted by the people of the Vine Jungle after saving them from Daimon. The "jungle He-Man" Oo-Lar in the classics continuity may originate here.

    Anwat Gar - Introduced in the MYP episode The Mystery of Anwat Gar. A former colony of the mysterious Gar race, now abandoned. In the MYP series, Sy-Klone was the last guardian of this city.

    Golden Isles

    Former Location of the Hall of Wisdom - Introduced in the MYP episodes The Beginning parts 1-3.


    Polar Ice Cap - Setting of the Filmation episode The Ice Age Cometh. In that episode it is claimed that Eternia maintains a weather control station here which maintains the climate of the planet, but this may or may not be canon anymore.

    Orkas Island - The homeland of Clawful's people, introduced in the MYP series.

    Berserk Islands - Homeland of Beast Man (and presumably the other Beast Men). Tropical islands ruled by savages. The setting of Icons of Evil: Beast Man.

    Sands of Time - Setting of the Temple of Darkness in the minicomic of that name, and the Temple of the Sun from the Filmation episode of the same name.

    Dunes of Doom - In MOTU Classics, Count Marzo hails from this area.

    Ruins of Zalesia - First appeared in Lessions (MYP). There was a Zalessia in Filmation, but it was a completely different place, a flying city. This version is presumably not canon anymore.

    Thanks Sandman

    Is there anywhere throughout the series that shows the Village of Veridas?

    I originally looked at the encyclopedia here on the .org and a lot of the places on the Map are not in it. It might be a good opportunity to update the encyclopedia with the information from this thread?

    It was in the episode Buzz-Offs Pride. There used to ba a bridge leading there but 3 giants destroyed it.

    Additions to above.

    The Vine Jungle - Home to man eating plants, He-Man, Teela Battle Cat and Orko have all been threatened by these.

    The sands of Time - a cave here is where the eldors hid Marzo's amulet, can only be reached by someone with an extendable neck!

    Ruins of Zalesia - ruined the first time Serpos awoke, after the pre-faceless one gave Hsss the power to do so in return for his kidnapped daughter.

    Zodak's Mountain - were Zodak lives, can only be reached by air

    Corridors of Lithos - where Marlena used to take a young Adam and Cringer. Later, back there, she was kicking snake butt until Randor blundered in!

    We should list all the first (and possibly notable) episode-appearances of the locations.

    Here are couple that I can remember.

    Ice Mountain / Stilla - MYP episode "Trust" where Kulataks mine Eternium, the strongest metal ever known. Stratos goes there to acquire it, but has to deal against Trap-Jaw for it. Kulataks reside at Stilla (or Stilia) to be exact in the Ice Mountains.

    Eye of Zurcain - MYP episode "The Courage of Adam" when Stratos and Prince Adam must fly through the eye of zurcain (or Zahr-Kain) in order to get to Avion, they are ambushed by Skeletor's troops.

    Village of Pelleezeea - MYP episode "Out of the Past" where Teela is drawn to in a vision, after a battle with Skeletor. She falls from her Sky Sled and is taken in by the diminutive Pelleezeans, who proclaim that she has "returned". The Sorceress originally stayed there for a brief time and fought against Prahvus.

    Zodak's Mountain - MYP episodes "Snake Pit" and "Rise of the Snake Men Part 1"

    Could this possibly be where Vikor is from? I am very excited about Vikor and I can't wait to find out more info about him

    I also want to add to Jukka's post that the Village of Pelleezeea is the original home of Odiphus, who later became Stinkor (also MYP: "Out of the Past")

    The Woman on the Map of Eternia

    So up on the top of the map all of the 2010 sub holder received there's a woman's head. There are demon heads here and there as well, but the woman is top-center and seems fairly detailed.

    Usually a figure like this on the edge or border of something is related to the subject of the art. It can be a god, a mythical beast, a person for whom or in honor of whom the art is created, etc.

    Any guesses who/what she is, and why she's featured right in the middle? I'd like to think a figure that was either important during the reign of Randor, or at least a person from the past held in high esteem by the people of that era.

    I thought those 'demon-heads' were Moss Man!

    My take on it is the woman is a representation of the Sorceress of Grayskull.

    What I do find interesting is that it looks like this 'Sorceress' is wearing a tiara with the cat-head emblem off Chief Carnivas' belt.

    If the lady is indeed the Sorceress of Grayskull, it again raises the question of the connection between the Sorceress of today and the (presumably at this stage) forgotten Towers of Eternia.

    I like the idea of the depicted figure being Veena because it does have more of the 200X-Sorceress look to it than the Mattel / falcon motif Sorceress we will probably see first.

    Update: Here's a close-up image of just the figure in question. Also, going off of Swanmarsh's comment, I always thought the tiara was a serpent--I kind of thought Veena (or whoever the figure is) would represent a link between the Goddess' serpent gear and the current Sorceress' togs.

    I thought it was just a decorative element and looked at her for 1/4 of a second. I know, I'm so unimaginative.

    Sorceress - serpent - Goddess connection
    or
    Sorceress - cat emblem - Central Eternian Tower connection.

    Either way, it is a good question to seek clarification from Toyguru on. However, we get such unfulfilling answers in the Q&As that maybe this is best left for a Roast Gooble Dinner interview?
