True, Jbryntze. This map is graphically nice, but full of inconsitancies. Joe kept very few informations from this map on his global map.
According to LW21 text, Bavari is with no doubt a Vassagonian city, but I know you still didn't read it, then you couldn't know.
Just take a look at (the excellent) LW18 and you'll see Honza was right.
Dausar is not an Anari city, I already explained there why this hypothesis based only on city colours on LW9 and 18 maps was wrong.
Dausar is slovian in MS5000, you'll discover why and some details about this city and its history in the 2nd volume of the Stornlands LWMPG sourcebook. That was even one of the main slovian locations I worked on for this book with Lokhuzor, hope you'll like.
I agree. On the opposite, the Azanam peninsula in Southern Magnamund has jungles. Then we can suppose the southern pole, if it exists, is far to the South, and then maybe another little continent could exist, as Antartica on our world?
Joe I don't know but I can say Francesco knows Honza's huge work and, as a great map fan like me, I think he appreciates his work.
There's something sad that Honza couldn't publish its own map, but I really think the 2 maps (Joe+Francesco's one and Honza's) have their own special interest: the 1st is more "graphical" and, of course, the only complete one, but the 2nd includes some little details that the 1st doesn't include as little place names (villages, hamlets, tombs...). Such details could not be included on the official map because too many places would have been to be created to balance the few ones known from the gamebooks. Then Honza's map will still be precious even when the official one will be published. Each map has exclusive contents!
