This map holds a special place for me, as it was the first I ever started, way back in my first attempts at mapping in 1999.
The Hollow World Set‘s twin maps of Iciria presented an amazing overview of the setting with a surprising amount of detail. Compared with the Known World, the Hollow World’s maps were amazingly regular and consistent, due to the far more structured birth this subsetting had, of course.
The scale is unique to this map and its sister map. Far more detailed than 72 miles per hex and yet more compact than 24 miles per hex, the 40 mile per hex scale suited the sprawling empires of this land of lost civilisations.

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.
