Comments
As far as the Atlas is concerned, the Known World consists of the countries shown on the original Expert Set map. Heldann, Wendar and Sind are considered borderland countries, which may be counted as parts of their own regions as well as parts of the Known World.

Notes on Updated map (Wrath of the Immortals)

To Do List

  1. Create a replica of X8's Known World map excerpt showing the location of Teki-Nura-Ria.
  2. Create a replica of X10 poster map.
  3. Create a replica of DMR1 Known World map. (It looks to be nothing more than an excerpt of the Cyclopedia map, but I'm being thorough.)
  4. Finish the First Era updated map, bringing it in line with all the pre-Gazetteer sources.
  5. Create replicas of Gazetteer trifold cover and in-book Known World maps (GAZ1, GAZ2, GAZ3, GAZ4, GAZ6, GAZ11, GAZ12).
  6. Create a replica of Karameikos: Kingdom of Adventure Known World map.
  7. Create an updated Known World map that incorporates all of the official sources, especially the 8 miles per hex Gazetteer series maps.
