Learned Scribe PattPlays,

Ahhh...I see. I appreciate that clarification.

As you can see, these maps are phenomenal but not practical on the small scales. They're zoomable, but the texture patterns used for mountains and foothills are more satellite view and less terrain view. Meanwhile this ancient map of the high forest is like an actually cartographed work from the region, albeit arranged like a playable hex-map. It's got a practical style that I really like, and finally gives me a headcanon for the region's terrain. Spellpague be damned artists can not agree on a way to map this random little nook.


I can certainly appreciate that. I've never seen that second map you linked, before. That is really awesome!

I do totally get the idea of the old map's utility when juxtaposed against the new. I will say, I just love that we live in a time where such critiques are a thing. We live quite well good sir! :)

Best regards,

To wrap back around to Dragonrise Keep, just completely stumbled upon the fact that the second map I linked also is the only of the three there to have the location marked. It does seem quite rare..

Learned Scribe PattPlays,

Out of curiosity, how and where did you stumble across the rarity of that map, if you don't mind me asking? :)
