I also added the Kantari Plains as well! Are you happy with the location?

I have gone with the map from X4, as it was the first map to detail this region, and is also the map that most people will be using when adventuring in this location (ie,when playing through the module X4).
2. I have gone with the river tributaries from the map in X4, unless contradicted by more than one map of Canon status (for example, if contradicted by both the Champions of Mystara map and that of X5).
I want to thank Carillion warmly for his efforts at modernizing this old content.

I want to thank Carillion warmly for his efforts at modernizing this old content. I am more than flattered to see that stuff I have worked on almost 15 years ago is still alive and considered interesting by fans of Mystara. At the time, I had developped my own system (using Photoshop and a long process of cutting/pasting hexes over a layered grid) and I'm truly impressed by the maps created following Thorf's Illustrator-based system. I hope to be able to learn how to make my own. I kind of remember struggling with the Sind Desert discrepancy when working on this map too.
I have hit the Mystara/OD&D books again and I am planning to finish my old Hule project. So you can expect more details on this region as well once I am done reviewing my old manuscript notes (all my original files were lost to a faulty external hard drive) and rereading canon material.

we didn't use Thorf's method however and I don't think he ever did a replica of your maps..

Laokong wrote: I had seen your map of Brun independently of your post. Breath-taking! Quite a project, and beautifully done. To see that all my old stuff found its way into your map was quite a surprise. It made me feel bad I had to leave it as a work in progress...

I might be inclined to change some Borean tribes name to better reflect the M-Celtic connection with Eusdria/Robrenn (my initial take on the area was more influenced by the Oltec-Neathar mix linked to Hule and Ethengar. It gave out a Central Asian/Finno-Ugric flavor to the the human nomads I introduced), I kinda overlooked the Neathar-Celtic/Franks (Charlemagne Era) connection with the Savage Coast as presented in the Princess Ark series.
