A Revised Map for Syldavia

Hi all,

I have updated my map for Syldavia, fiddling with minor details like the direction of river courses, the location of national frontiers and changing some place names.   The most noticeable change is the presence of a hex grid, each hex is supposed to be 10km in diameter.  This particular change is a big help (obviously!) figuring out distances between places in real terms, such as numbers of days (or hours...) of travel between point A and point B. Syldavia is smaller than I thought!

  2. Paul,



    So good to hear from you! My compliments on your Duffer's Drift project. You will notice that I have begun to creep into the territories adjacent to the sacred Motherland. Feel free to make any suggestions at all about the shape of Borduria, the locations of places and of place names. Etc. You can send print out the map, write out such details on the page, scan and send it back to me if you like. Or I can send an Adobe Illustrator file.

    As I have drawn it out, poor old Polishoff province is doomed to be the scene of most of the action, but a similar territory, downstream on the Djrinje River, ought to exist in Borduria as well.

    Cheers,

    Jim

  4. Looks very good - I like the way the hexes somehow pull it all together.

    Cheers,

  5. I will try and plonk Trans-Syldavia to the east in some sort of way that makes the Byzantion-Klow road through it and the Pashaluk make sense :)

    Probably on some other side of a part of the Dinarian Alps

    By the way, do you think Borduria may have been Austrian in the 1800's at all?
