I absolutely love this map and have wondered about the creator of it for awhile now. This is very well done, even with the exception of some comments where you have minor errors. It's obvious that you truly worked hard on this map. I am personally partial to the version that Marcus of Ar had made, mainly because of the position of the Ta-Thassa Mountain range. Although that's not crapping on your's, at all. It is very wonderful.

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-

This is my work!!! All you did was remove the color and re-layer it with brown! It was posted on three gorean websites and published on the John Norman website.

I can assure you this is not a direct copy. I have the photoshop files showing how it was built up. The definition of the original I have is far greater than the one published here and therefore if ever asked to prove it could do so. In compiling this map I have used various references to the books and other published maps.  Yours may well have been one of those maps.

I see many people criticizing spellings of cities, Ko-ro-ba and Port Cos for example ... I see people saying "their" city is not shown, not realizing that "their" city is one made-up in some SL venue or obscure chat room and is not in the books (idiot - read the books) ... I think you are doing a great job - those making complaints should show their work or shut up ... being a map-maker myself I know how hard this can be but few feign to try, just nit-pick at those who do ... it's good to look at the "suggestions," just keep up the good work and don't let those who pick at "this-and-that" bother you ... I wish you well ...

Excellent Map, well done, lots of research and work there.  Think maybe the subequatorial Cartius flows to the Lake Ushini rather than Shaba though...

"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."

I want to point out the location of "Lara" is wrong.

    "Lara!" she cried. "Lara!" This was a town in the Salerian Confederation at the confluence of Vosk and Olni.
www.e-reading.link/bookreader.…

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!

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 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.

The Pani live at the Worlds End. There is no elaborate description as to where it is but we do know you can get there by sailing between the islands of Tyros and Cos. How far and what the exact path is after that is unclear.

Really nice work! One of the MOST accurate maps I've ever seen of Gor. My two tarsk bits... Tor IS a part of the Tahari, inside the desert, though it is at the outter border of the Tahari. Meaning inside the desert but just barely. I'd love to see this change, would make the map even more accurate. :) I wish you well.
