Still needs a little work.
I haven't been into SL Gor before, but am a regular text based Rper. I also noticed you don't have any 3d models of a slave of the Wagon Peoples? Forgot about us,...-crie!-..I'm joking. Sorry. -lol-. Had to add some humor into it. I am very curious to see if you would be interested in putting together a representation of a proper Wagon People's slave. If so, would you be alright with something like that being used for information about slaves on a small Gor msg board? -smiles-
I was going to correct some of the obvious mistakes but never seem to have the time.
"Shaba then continued the circumnavigation of Lake Ushindi," said Samos. "He charted accurately, for the first time, the entry of the Cartius proper, the subequatorial Cartius, into Ushindi. He then continued west until he reached the six ubarates and the heartland of Bila Huruma."
"Lara!" she cried. "Lara!" This was a town in the Salerian Confederation at the confluence of Vosk and Olni.
It should be in my opinion 'east' of the Olni which it has been traditionally seen as with Marcus's map of Gor.
That said, its an excellent map with much more detail!
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.
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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
just one mistake..I think it must be a Typo...the "Prt Cob" near Tetrapoli and Tafa cities on Vosk River is " Port Cos",,not "Cob"
fantastic map better than 99% of all the fake world maps ive ever seen
