A world with a Single Supercontinent

This alien planet is Earth at the end of the Permian. A single super-continent sits in a world ocean. The website IO9 has overlaid the countries and regions of the modern world onto a rough outline of  Pangea.

It is a reminder when creating new worlds for stories and SF games that even Earth hasn't always been much like Earth as we now know it.


  1. Now I like that and perfect for fantasy/sci-fi games!

  2. The inland sea to the north west was highly saline. The south was heavily glaciated but by the late Permian the tropics would be steamy. The interior suffered from prolonged drought and huge seasonal temperature variations.
