Comments
1) The map is pretty sparse at the moment. I'm going to rely on the community to help flesh it out.

I've been focusing on the nations of the Spindrift Sea recently, but I've had this one sitting on my computer for a while now, and I don't think I've posted it yet.

Maskelyne is the "Shadow City" that sits on an island in the northern Sea of Tranquility. The Taurus Gnomes know of this location and actively avoid it. Wizards and other nasties may be able to summon shadows from the city to do their bidding (since summoning spells can't call creatures from outside of the Hollow Moon this is one of the few places they can draw from).

I've also speculated in some of my BC 2300 threads that this city may be the remnants of the Makers/M'kar, after their society was destroyed by out of control magic which turned the entire populations into shadows.

I've updated the Maskelyne maps - this is the first major revision to my original material. Originally I had placed Maskelyne on an island in the northern Mare Tranquillitatis (on what lunar maps label Plinius). Unfortunately at the time I was working from a map that didn't have the real Maskelyne labeled, and I just chose something that I thought looked good.

Anyway, as it turns out, the real Maskelyne is on the opposite side of Tranquillitatis - in the south. So after some deliberation (while working on other cultures in the vicinity of Mare Tranquillitatis), I decided to see what it would look like if I actually moved it. Here is the updated map:

I've left the older maps in the first post for comparison.
