So do you think Greyhawk Grognard's maths is wrong here?
Is it possible to get Aquaria 5,000 miles away from the Flanaess without expanding the size of the globe?
Frank Mentzer hints in this thread
that the Empyrean continent extends from near the north pole to perhaps something equivalent in latitude to Central America.
People (and I'm not hinting at Frank when I say "people" - I mean in general) sometimes try to handwave this sort of geographical location stuff, but you can't really get away from it. Poles and equators do stuff that has in-character implications.
Perhaps the new Aquaria product will have a map that can be combined with the TSR map...although I'm not sure how Frank can get Darlene to suggest the 5,000 gap without showing the edge of the Flanaess. I guess I'll find out later.
