[Lejendary Adventures] I made a Map of Gary Gygax' Legendary Earth (Work in progress)

This is my first draft for a map of the setting of Gary Gygax' Lejendary Adventures. There is a discussion with more detail on the setting here.

Note: I don't have a real good map of the setting to base this on. Instead it is based on the front and back cover of the Lejendary Earth Gazetteer book. The problem with that is that parts of the map are covered by text so both coastlines and geographical features are sometimes guesswork on my part.

I also don't know the name of Lejendary Earth's South America?

Any feedback or suggestions is welcome!

I don't know anything about the campaign setting, so I can't help there.

But I noticed you have a big bit of open sea at the bottom of the map (below the South America analogue and Apphir). Your logo/title is covering up parts of Varan and Hazgar and if you moved it down over the south ocean area those would be more visible.

There is also another pretty big bit of open ocean on the bottom left part of the map. You could fit something in there if you needed to.

I was able to find the name of the South America equivalent. Its Huybraz. I will include it and other additions on the next version of the map.

Heh. I actually put the logo there because I don't know exactly how the northern coastline of those continents should appear. Thanks for exposing my intentional cover up! ;)

I couldn't post the image of those coastlines here as its too wide - but I posted it on FB so that you can see what the coasts looked like. Note that there was a bit of variance between the continental maps as to their edges. That was a common problem with the early maps (but also a fairly minor problem). -CC

Hello Christopher! Great seeing back posting here!

I can't see your post on FB. Did you post it in the Lejendary Adventures group? Which books have the most correct maps in your opinion?

...and the Author's edition of the Chronicles of the Lejendary Earth: Gazetteer had a full fold-out map of the entire world in it. (but only the author's Ed.) as I remember.
