So do I. I'm afraid it will be harder though, as there is no such map in the first place whereas there was Geoff's map of Davania.

In my opinion Skothar is particularly problematic, because I think people who have mapped it in the past have blown it up way too much, resulting in an unbalanced world. On the other hand, maps of these things do exist - Thibault mapped a vast proportion of the world, and Kal's huge map covers the whole world too.

Actually one thing I'd really like to do at some point soon is make replicas of some of Thibault's old maps. His old maps may not be all that pretty compared to the maps people are making nowadays, but that doesn't mean they're bad. Unfortunately it does mean that they are often overlooked. Some nice replicas could quickly remedy that problem. :D

Thib is the pioneer of Mystaran Cartography :)
I would love to see some of Thib's maps get the Thorf treatment 8-)

Is there a place that all of Master Thorf's maps can be found?

mystara.thorf.co.uk seems to have many of the maps, but I could not find these Davania maps there.

These maps are sweet!

They should all be found in the Vaults, with perhaps the exception of the most recent ones.

Just to clarify: all the most up to date versions of my maps are hosted at mystara.thorf.co.uk, but not all show up in the thumbnail pages there. Specifically, there is no folder for "Unofficial", which means that none of my replica and updated unofficial maps show up there at present. As far as I know those are the only exceptions, though.

It is probably possible to add this folder to the list, but I'm not entirely sure how to go about doing that, and I don't have time to look into it at the moment. In the meantime it probably helps to know that on my current server you can visit the directory directly: http://mystara.thorf.co.uk/unofficial/ . (Of course this works for the other directories too.)

OK, sweet! Thanks for the heads up on that.
I know you've heard it before, but your work is great! Thanks a bunch!

I like to note this is great work but it seems like it is off some how, almost like when it was made he didn't follow scale of the map he crafted it from. Take the area by the pass of cestia on mainland, it measures 7/8 of a inch. U times that by 1700 which is the scale of map per inch then divide by 72 miles to get the number of hexes of 20. But his only has 14 so he or u may have to make a new map or alter the hex size to fit.
