Gallowmere was one of the nine kingdoms of Medieval Britain famed for its lush green countryside, fair rulers and kindly people. It was home to many mystical, mythical creatures, like Dragon Toads, Rhinotaurs and Dragon Birds.

Towns and cities
Gallows Town (also known as The Sleeping Village) was a town lying near the center of Gallowmere. Its inhabitants were possessed by Zarok in 1386, but were freed shortly after. The town had a library, church, pub and smithy.
Castle Peregrin (also known as The Haunted Ruins) was once Gallowmere's seat of power and home to the royal household, before it fell to ruin and became abandoned. There was lava underneath the castle which was held back by a set of floodgates. The castle was completely destroyed after the lava was released in 1386.
Mellowmede (also known as The Lake) was once a town of arcane alchemy, before being destroyed by Rhinotaurs and flooded by the murky swamps. The ancient people of this long vanished town once sought to harness the power of Crystals within the Crystal Caves. Mellowmede resurfaced in 1386 due to Zarok's magic. It is unknown whether it remained on the surface after the sorcerer's defeat.
The City of Madness (also known as The Time Device) was a city built by Zarok using the darkest of magics. The city was home to many of his obscure inventions, including his boiler guards. Another notable invention was a train, which he used to travel around the city faster. In the middle of the city lied Zarok's Lair, his personal domain. Both the lair and city exploded in 1386.
Behind the scenes
Gallowmere's map underwent significant changes during development. In MediEvil 0.28, the map still featured The Muddy Riverbank, a cut level. The Lake and The Gallows Gauntlet were not depicted on this version of the map. There was also a path leading from the Scarecrow Fields to The Sleeping Village.
In MediEvil 0.29, The Muddy Riverbank was removed from the map and replaced with The Lake. The path leading from Scarecrow Fields to The Sleeping Village was also removed. In addition, The Gallows Gauntlet was added to the map.
It is unknown when exactly the final version of the map arose, but it can first be seen in MediEvil Reviewable Version. The final map is nearly identical to the version from 0.29, but it depicts interior levels, specifically The Crystal Caves, The Time Device and Zarok's Lair.
