In order to create a sector (city area type place)
1) Draw a map - this doesn't need to be with boxes or on the computer (pencil is just fine). This is to give you a good idea of what the city will look like and would be like a bird's eye view of the city.
2) Box a map - this is dividing up your map into rooms.
3) Label a map - this means putting names to places. Also any sort of command other than N,S,E,W,NE,SE,SW,NW,out (i.e. go ladder, climb tree, jump into river). See example image.
4) Number a map - Do this last! This is your boxed map with numbers for each room (each room needs a single number - also the room number cap is 999, though I expect each sector to have between 50 to 100 rooms. Elisandre has about 86. See example image.
