GAZ10’s map is a peculiar beast. Like GAZ6’s Rockhome (but even more so), the Broken Lands map gives you a strong sense that this is only the tip of the iceberg. In this case, there’s really not a lot to speak of in the above-ground map. All we can really see is which tribe of humanoids resides where, and that’s basically about it. The forested swamp hex is unique to this map. It’s interesting because in fact swamps and marshes can be distinguished by the presence or lack of trees. The Atlas‘s updated maps split swamp and marsh into separate icons, just as they are here.

About Replica Maps
Unlike Updated maps, Replica maps are exact (or sometimes colourised) replicas of primary source maps. These source maps form the main source material of the Atlas of Mystara, from which all of the updated maps are made. Put simply:
- Replica maps present the world of Mystara as the original source materials depict it, warts and all. No attempt has been made to fix errors of any kind — even typos. Replica maps are always marked as such on this site.
- Updated maps present the Atlas of Mystara‘s consistent view of the world, with all errors, alignment issues, and so on fixed. Anything not marked as a replica map is an updated map.
