I notice that we don't have a section for maps - is there a reason for this? There is a good website run by Zalthor (Maps
) that has a lot of Myst maps - but not all of them, e.g. there are no maps for Exile.
The Ages of Myst all have maps from the Masterpiece Edition hint guide included in their articles (which I figured was the logical place for them to go
), but Riven, Exile, Revelation, and Uru are all presently mapless because there's a lack of really really good maps out there for those Ages. I know there used to be some really great Riven maps made by someone a long time ago, but I don't remember the site address or if it even still exists.
I know that the maps in the Uru: ABM strategy guide are all hand-drawn sketchy things, and never show the whole Age at once, so I'm not 100% keen on using in the Archive, and the Exile strategy guide maps are a little hard to make out since they're just top-down renders of each Age converted to black and white... I've not picked up a copy of the Revelation guide yet, though, so I dunno what the maps in that one look like. If they look good, we can put them in the Archive, but if not, we may have to resort to asking people to draw them for us
. I'm just a bit leery of using low-quality maps made in Paint because I want to keep the production quality high on as much stuff as I can. Maybe we could ask the Uru Cartographers if we could borrow their maps for the Uru Ages, because those look really nice overall, and are pretty well detailed. Or maybe we could con Gadren into making some maps for us using his PRPExplorer method
Cathy, if you want to send me a PM with one of the maps from Revelation attached (make sure it's small, but still large enough to make out
), I'll let you know what I think. I dunno, maybe I can con Katie into getting some overhead maps or something from the Rev Devs (yes, I live in a fantasy world
