Chronicles of Mhoriedh Map 00 Olden Lands Continent


There are seven maps included with this product, each of the same area and detailing different aspects of the Olden Lands. This is “Map 00,” the baseline continental map for the Chronicles of Mhoriedh campaign setting. They are designed for use with the forthcoming Gazetteer of the Olden Lands; they are presented for sale here separately for those who would simply like to have the maps.

The official scale on Map 00 is 75 miles per hex, with the map being 30 hexes north to south and 50 hexes east to west. The map is about 2,400 miles north to south and about 3,400 miles east to west, for a total area of 8,160,000 square miles.

The Continental map will be divided into nine Regional maps. The Regional maps will also have 30 hexes north to south and 50 hexes east to west, and be at a scale of 25 miles per hex.

Each Region can then be broken down into 25 Area maps, each at 5 miles per hex. But I have no plans on doing that, as that would entail creating 225 maps! But we might call out some Areas now and again with special maps, as opportunity permits.

We will support specific Hexes with further detail, using the 25HEX system breaking down each 25 mile hex into 25 5-mile hexes, and subsequently showcasing the area by further breaking the core 19 5-mile hexes of each 25-mile hex down on a map 25 hexes across at a scale of 1/5th of a mile per hex.

If you wish, you can also set the scale at 72 miles per hex on the Continental map, which would give you a scale of 24 miles per hex on the Regional maps. This would then give you a scale of 8 miles per hex on nine Area maps per Region.

You could also go with a scale of 90 miles per hex on the Continental map, which would give you a scale of 30 miles per hex on the Regional map, and 10 miles per hex on nine Area maps per region.

You are hereby authorized to print any of the maps included with this product for personal use only. Please do not sell, share, or give these maps away, either in electronic or print form, except as excerpts as needed for your personal campaigns.

This map provides you with the plain geographical and topographical lay of the land. It should be noted that at the 90 mile per hex scale, the indicated feature is simply the majority geographical feature, not necessarily overwhelming all other features in the area. A 90-mile hex has 81 10-mile hexes within its environs; that’s a lot of territory!

This map provides you with the names of the major geographical and topographical features of the Olden Lands. Not every range of hills or river is named, but most of the important ones are, as are all areas mentioned in this product.

This map breaks the Olden Lands into its major constituent parts. Some of these areas are kingdoms, and some are empires, while others are cultural regions or simple geographic areas, depending on the nature of the civilization prevalent in the region. Those areas shown that are kingdoms are depicted with their “best hoped borders” presented; while claims might be quite grandiose, in many cases such borders are honored more in the breach than in any other fashion. Consult the entries in this volume for more information on each realm and region.

This map shows the location of major settlements. What is a major settlement in one region might well be a rustic hamlet in another. Settlements that are noted with a white star in a red circle are capitals for their respective kingdoms or racial realms, with the exception of Velantia, which is a major free city (and the largest city in the Olden Lands). There are no roads featured at this scale as there are no continental-wide roads. There are in fact few well-developed roads at all; there are some in Elysion, a few in Itlania, and a handful in Kryx, but most folk travel on hard-packed trails or mud-carved wagon ruts.

This map shows the progression of the Great Plague, which began in 1997 AE, preceding and paving the way for the subsequent nomad invasions from Nhorr and the Purple Plains. The plague originated in the Far West and spread to the Olden Lands through traders out of Mhordlakh. It then spread south through the Western Marches and east through Bagaudia. As of the end of the year 2000 AE it has reached the Paynim Coast and Deshret in the South, up through Strigoria, and into the Middle Lands, including Aurlandia and Gregorius. Though it primarily affects humans, other races are not immune, though elves, half-elves, orcs, and half-orcs seem to have strong resistance to the disease.

This map shows the major nomad invasions that occurred during the prior three years, with the status of major nomad camps at the end of the campaign season in 2000 AE. This map does not show the minor incursions of the goblinoids from the Northern Wilds and the Starcrag Peaks, or other minor actions on the part of barbarian tribes and other humanoids. The triangle-in-circle symbols indicate current major camps, with the three-dot ruins symbols indicate incursions that were extirpated or otherwise turned back.

This map shows the division of Map 00, the Continental Map, into the nine Regional maps. Each of the nine Region maps will be more fully developed in its own larger-scale map and gazetteer.

To provide you with a bit more information on the Olden Lands ere the publication of the complete Gazetteer, we are including a PDF with two appendices: Monsters and Resources. The appendices list the most common locations where monsters are found and the major resources (in the form of potentially surplus and thus exportable goods) of each realm. It should be noted that the locations listed for these monsters and resources are not the only locations and sources, merely the locations and sources where these monsters and resources are most likely to be found.

This is a rather fun collection of maps reminiscent of a school geography atlas. You know the ones, where you can see all manner of different information about the same bit of land - political boundaries, topology, population density, produce and so on [...]

This is the world map (including all the aforementioned variations) for James Mishler's new "Olden Lands" campaign setting, which looks to be very much an old-school setting in the spirit of those such as Greyhawk, Forgotten Realms, and Wilde [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
