X11 introduced two new nations on the borders of the Known World: Wendar and Denagoth. It also provided a first cursory look at Heldann, which was always rather neglected. However, the Norwold portion of the map is extremely problematic. To make matters worse, CM1’s Norwold had already provided a different view of this region, albeit without Heldann. These issues came to be known as the Norwold conundrum — an infamous problem area among Mystara’s cartographers.

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.
