The second Gazetteer series map began a strange trend in not showing any villages.  The lack of a central river prevented the Egypt-Like treatment that later worked so well in HWR2’s Nithia.  But it nevertheless did a decent job of making what the original 24 mile per hex map showed as an area of pure desert into a more interesting, varied landscape.

About Replica Maps

Unlike Updated mapsReplica 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.
