Karameikos - 8mph

As pretty much everyone seems to start with Karameikos, I guess it's only appropriate:

Karameikos 8 mph

Very nice.

Can you expand off of the edges, if you want to make a map of somewhere next to Karameikos, or would you need to start again from scratch with a new hex template?

Thank you.

It's created as a mosaic structure of individual blocks approximately 24x28 hexes. They are all generated with a slight overlap to aid continuity and piecing together.

Nice work, but there is a problem introduced by starting the Karameikos - once one starts adding in newer maps the Karameilos one gives a false picture of the ground cover.

The problem is the hills of Karmeikos. Later gazatteers introduced the symbol for "forested hills", but this symbol was not in use when Karameikos was mapped (primarily looking at Gaz 1), so most maps, like yours, use the normal hills symbol for the Karemikan hills; however if you read the gazatteer, the hills are pretty much all forested and should use the newer symbol if connected to maps that use it...
