    Hi Thorf, Mt. Legio (935 ft. / 285 m) doesn’t really look like a mountain.
    Although tallest than the highest point in Denmark, I doubt the Thyatians would ever call it “mountain”.
    Can we exclude that someone forgot a zero at the end?

      You’re quite right! It also looks to me like most mountain altitudes end with a “0” on Mystaran maps, which doubly singles this one out as an error.

      I’ll change it to 9,350 ft.

    Hi Thorf, great updates on the map! Just a couple of comments:

    1) Is there any particular reason behind your choice of “Tarthia” over “Tarsia” as the name of the western Imperial Territories? I’m asking because “Tarthia” seems to be an odd tweak of the original name of Mt. Tarsus… (moreover, it also looks quite like “Thrathia”, which should be the name of the Thyatian Hinterlands).

    2) What about adding the village of Piceno from PWA3? Here is the reference (I copied and pasted it from my own post on The Piazza):

    * Village of Piceno (from Poor Wizard’s Almanac III)
    Nuwmont 20 entry, event “Slaves Unleash Terror”, is set in a farmhouse “near the village of Piceno”, located in “Central Thyatis”.

    The village is not located in the Kantrium area, as I previously thought, but in the region called “Central Thyatis” (domains of Thyatis, Lucinius, and Retebius). Since the village is tied to the Ac 1012 events regarding the slave uprising in Thyatis City, I suppose Piceno’s best location would be somewhere in the vicinities of the capital.

      Hi Simone!

      1) This is just bad memory on my part. I thought you had suggested Tarthia. I was probably conflating it with Tarthis. I’ll change it to Tarsia.

      2) Done! I’ll post on Facebook to check the location with you.

      3) I’m still in the process of working through official population figures. Thanks for spotting these, and please let me know if any more need changed!

    Oh, another thing: the symbol of Kerendas is to be changed to “metropolis” (black “capital” symbol) then?
