Glantri, 8 miles per hex

by Thorfinn Tait


Replica of GAZ3 poster map, 8 miles per hex by Thorf, replica map 1 February 2016; original colours map July 2008

The poster map of Glantri in GAZ3 was highly developed in its first instance.  This is no surprise when you consider the book’s author: Bruce Heard.  I think that Bruce was responsible for more of Mystara’s hex maps than most of us may realise, but we can be assured that this one was all his design.

It’s an iconic map for Mystara, full of detail and wonder, the favourite of many a fan.  Let’s take a moment to savour it once more in all its glory.
