Not a bad Map of Gor, and actually one of the better ones out there. Though, from the book's descriptions The Sardar Mountains are southish of the Vosk, closer to Besnit and eastish of Port Kar and Brundisium. Thentis is where is should be, and ought to be the only mountains in that region, one of the last cities of 'civilized Gor before going further east into the Barrens. And I am not sure of Tarnwald, but on most other Maps I think have noted it south of the vosk, closer to the Voltai Mountains.
But to comment on another poster's comment; There is no Caste of Players, people of all Caste's play the 'Game', as it is simply spoken of in dilogue in the books.. the game of Kaissa, which is the Gorean word for Game. It is more of a fraternity or a Brotherhood of those that love the game. Some play the game and study it, to such an extent, that true they may seperate from thier Castes to indulge thier life's study of the game, but the players of the 'game' have no Caste.

Caste of Players refers to singers, musicians and professional players:

Players, incidentally, are free to travel where they wish on the surface of Gor, no matter what might be their city. By custom, they, like musicians, are held free of the threat of enslavement. Like musicians, and like singers, there are few courts at which they are not welcome.
Hunters of Gor   Page 148

Most Gorean cities now, at least in the south, had accepted a standard tournament Kaissa, agreed upon by the high council of the caste of players.
Beasts of Gor  Page 43

In most cities it is regarded, incidentally, as a criminal offense to enslave one of the caste of players.
Beasts of Gor   Page 44

The chief officer of the caste of players, with representatives of both Cos and Ar, would be waiting for them on the stone stage of the amphitheater, with the helmet.
. . .
Then, beside he who bore the standard of Ar, there stood one in the garb of the players, the red and yellow checkered robe, and the checkered cap, with the board and pieces slung over his shoulder, like a warrior's accouterments.
Beasts of Gor   Page 51 - 53

We watched the large, yellow plaque, representing the Ubara's Spearman, hung on its peg at Ubara five. Two young men, apprentices in the caste of players, on scaffolding, placed the plaque. Another young man, also apprenticed in the caste of players, recorded this move, in red chalk, at the left of the board.
Beasts of Gor  Page 87

If one may judge by the outcome of Kaissa tournaments, amateur tournaments as opposed to those in which members of the caste of Players participate, there are brilliant men in most castes.
Fighting Slave of Gor  Page 211

The only other caste on Gor which is generally considered, for most practical purposes, as immune from bondage is the caste of players. These are the fellows who make their living from the game of Kaissa, playing it for prizes, charging for games, giving instruction and exhibitions, annotating games, and so on. They are usually poor fellows but generally have little trouble securing a night's food and lodging for a game or two. The general affection and respect which Goreans feel for the game of Kaissa is probably the explanation for the practical immunity from bondage commonly accorded the members of the caste of players.

I roleplay in Second Life Gor, as a Citizen of Besnit and a traveling member of the Caste of Players. I use this map to figure out where I should go next. Cant wait for the updated version.

I think some one else as pointed this out. I have amended it on my second version of the map but haven't got round to posting it yet.

Hopefully I will post over Xmas.

I cant find any references to its location. The map is based on the books only and not role play. If you have a book reference then I would consider adding it to the map. I am about to make a few minor updates to the map based on comments.
