Glad i could help. Nice map by the way.

Hopefully at some point you can find a way to turn the writing on/off maybe by hovering over it or with a button for the various layers.

Also the ability to highlight regions would be useful. For instance the Direwood is a large portion of the High Forest, similarly Old Earlann and Turlang's Wood are also portions of the High Forest that may contain other landmarks.

I've noted a number of places you havent placed yet (just within the High Forest)

North Fork (i think its the name of that lower fork you mentioned as being missing.

Tall Trees - a small northeastern section of the forest (probably between Elven Port and Hellgate Keep)

The Old Road - the name of the road leading to mhilamniir from elven port

Farsilver - an ancient fortress due north of loudwater

Lothen - somewhere west of the star mounts in where siluvanede used to be.

Noanar's Hold - You have it on the map as Noantar's Hold, but maybe there is a reason for that, i just always thought it was Noanar's

Shaalkar Manor - this one might not be in the High Forest but its a potential ruin of the Vyshaan Empire so could be in the High Forest.

Onthrilaenthor - a mine carved by dwarves (for the elves) into the eastern star mounts

Teumyshaaril - located in the heart of the high forest near the ancient elven tree city of Teuveamanthaar (i reckon both are between the star mounts and lost peaks near the centre of the forest.

Darkmaiden’s Leap - Somewhere southest of Everlund possibly in Turlang's Wood

Hall of Mists + Tree Ghost Camp - Both located in, around, under the Grandfather Tree

The Sorrowood - Located in the crook of the Star Mounts possibly in the fork of the unicorn run (which might cause problems with nordhaeril)

The Upvale - Basically the woods around Hellgate Keep




Not sure if you were looking for more places to include but i thought id try and be helpful.

Turning the type on and off my be in option, I'll have to look into it.

I'm definitely looking for more places to add. I'll put those on my list.

I'm looking for advise on how to reconcile descriptions a few spots to figure out how to map them. The spots are the "Stronghold of the Nine", "Nordahaeril" and "the Sisters". I can't find a map that shows all three and I can't determine how they are arranged. They are all in the High Forest apparently either on or to the west of the Unicorn Run, which runs N-NE through the forest. The Stronghold of the Nine is shown on maps to the west of the Unicorn Run usually not remarkably far from the edge of the forest. Nordahaeril is mentioned as being to the west of the Stronghold and between the Stronghold and the Sisters. The Sisters by it's description seems like it should be right on the Unicorn Run and it is mentioned being south of the Star Mounts which makes me think closer to the heart of the forest, but the only way that could be true is if it were N-NE of the Stronghold not somewhat west of it as implied by being on the other side of Nordahaeril which is to the west.

I know this is long and rambling, but I don't really see how to make these descriptions line up on a map. Any suggestions? Or even better maps showing all three or maybe even two of these locations.



They're all three on the FRIA map http://www.forgottenadventures.com/FRMaps/HighForest.JPG

Hopefully the map is recording the missing locations. I've added about 3 now.

It is, I've got a bunch of entries in there since I turned that feature on. Thanks.

Edit:
I've added a layer to show previously entered corrections. Right now this isn't realtime, but maybe eventually, at least for now it lets you see what else has been entered so there isn't redundancy. Once I've fully updated a spot on the map I'll take down the correction marker for that location.

I've done an update to the map, adding in a lot of the corrections expanding the area it covers a little bit and also separating out the text and the grid onto separate layers that can be turned off and on.

This is great. I like the improved text format, much easier to read. I have a question though, what year (DR) is this map supposed to correspond to?

Very impressive work, nice layering.

Although i did notice one correction was attributed to me that i definitely didnt add (Shaeradim or whatever it is - never heard of it).


When i have a free minute i will concentrate on individual areas one at a time and review all the places i have in them.

Maybe i'll start alphabetically with Anauroch.

For Nordahaeril, THIS is about as official as it gets.

I am sad to say none of those map projects have seen the light of day, except for some parts that were used in Mike Schley's maps. Hopefully, someday...

And YES, that is part of a MUCH bigger map - one that is finished (I think).

Alright the zoomable map is back up. The plan is to slowly extend the area it covers, but it is slow going.

:O :O :O !!! ... !!!!!!!!!!! !!!

Weeeeeee! Great! Can't wait to see the whole map (and realmslore I suspect comes with it)!

Absolutely fantastic work! Thank you!

@perlmugp thanks for putting it back up. Even in it's WIP state this is still a great tool! A big thank you to you too, and courage too!

Moon Mountain Brewery is missing on your map, though ;-P

Why, so it is!

Both Eric and I missed that one - good catch!


EDIT: Curiously, it would NOT have appeared on that snippet regardless - the scale of that map is enormous, and it would have been off the southern edge.

Alright ^_^ I guess I just estimated 'on the banks of the Unicorn Run two days' travel north of Secomber' wrong. Depends on wether you're on foot or pegasus' back, probably ;-P
