[nbos] [FM8] Joerdhgardh Map of Week 12 - Swamp & Lake Area
"Mark Oliva"
Mon May 23rd, 2011
The 12th Map-of-the-Week release shows the post-devastation swamp and lake
area of the fallen AEsir Empire. In the coming weeks, we'll be releasing
individual maps of the many lairs shown on this week's overland map.

In the Joerdhgardh (TM) campaign setting, a draug is very similar to a
high-powered lich in such OGL 3.5 games as the Pathfinder (R) RPG, the
True20 (TM) system or Dungeons & Dragons (R) 3.5. When the High Draug
Martroedh was destroyed at the end of the Great Wars, his destruction sent a
devastating wave of magic across the fallen empire. Hardest hit was the
central Leipt River Valley in the heart of what had been Greenwood Forest.
The magic caused dry mountains to rise around the valley and the valley
floor to sink. The forest vanished, and a line of inland lakes and swamps
some 200 miles/320 km long covered what had been the forest floor.

The dark draug Svurumnir, whose lair we saw in the 10th and 11th
Map-of-the-Week releases, is in Grain Mill (Grenmylla) in the southwest
corner of the swamp and lake area. Many other creatures have settled within
the area, including a red, black and yellow-white dragon named Yrsung in the
south and a black, green and yellow dragon in the northwest.

You can get this map in any of three versions:

1. As a JPG flat map with location names, 1360 x 1020 pixels (1 MB),
available from the Joerdhgardh web site.

2. As a JPG flat map without location names, 1360 x 1020 pixels (1 MB),
available from the Joerdhgardh web site.

3. The original FM8 map in FMP format, fully editable, from our Joerdhgardh
web page (13 MB). This version includes a PDF pamphlet that tells you how to
use the layers that are built into the map.

All three versions are released for personal and commercial use under the
Open Game License Version 1.0a, which you can read on the Joerdhgardh web
