    This is so wonderful! As someone who loves EX3 but played and loved First edition from the beginning, I love this.

    Well this is pretty much the biggest endorsement you can get of your 1E style map work!

    Something rather neat is how it has the same grild style as SLS' old 1e map. Kind of gives one a sense of how much bigger things are if you sit to look at both a bit.

    And stuff.

    I've been trying to get a clear detail of the chiaroscuro peninsula for a while, it was completely covered by the name on the other map.

    I'm so glad to hear that. I made this sort of as a tribute to your map from 1E that I got so much use out of.

    Edit: I made some changes to the map based on observations. Thanks guys!

    This is great. I found the embellishments distracting as well.

    Awesome job. While I love the new map, and prefer the look, it's just much easier to actually use the 1E Style. Thanks for your work.

    Thank you for sharing. While I think the 3E map looks good, all the embellishments makes it kind of useless for me to be used for actual gaming. This is what I have been thinking of doing, but beside not having time for, being to lazy to do myself.

    Would you mind sharing the project file, or a large map with no location on it? That way it would be great resource to update with out own spots for our own games, and the size seems big enough to make local maps.

    When it comes to the location of things, while it is the same location as the official map, being a dot makes it stand out more. I guess Onyx should be located on the coast and not in the middle of the island.

    Sure, I can give you a 'blank' map no problem. I'll try to throw something up later today along with a smaller grid that was asked for earlier. And, yeah, I know about the dots. I mostly just put them on the center of the little 'city' icon on the 3E Map, which, as you pointed out, has caused problems. I think I'll move some of them closer that I know are coastal, like Onyx. Some of the new places, like Goldenseal, though, I have no idea if they are coastal are not.

    Hello! A while ago I started on a little project to recreate the Third Edition map in the same style as the map as presented in First Edition. Now, I know what alot of you are thinking; the 3E map looks great! You're an idiot who wasted alot of time! Well, maybe I did. However, I always liked the 'pop' of the bright colors of the 1E Map, I find the 3E map a tad washed out looking for my tastes. I also wanted something that lacked the fanciful embellishments of the 3E Map, which I sometimes find distracting. I am sure there are errors that need to be corrected and I would gladly take any criticism as constructive advice!

    Good eye! That's part of the reason I posted it, so people can point out things I missed. I've already got a changelog going for what to add that I missed. Thanks!

    Worth it just for the grid itself! Very neat! Kudos!

    I could actually REALLY use something like that. Count me in as interested.
