Map of Astlan
The Council is proud to announce brand new maps have been commissioned from the hand of Sophrelon D'Artelon, a sage of legendary cartographic skill. Sophrelon is one of only 3 sages in the world approved for delineating Oorstemothian borders, who is not a member of the Oorstemothian government.
In Astlan the most common unit of distance is the "league" which is the distance an adult human can walk in one hour at a brisk pace. Each described region (other than Oorstemoth, for legal reasons) has a grid overlay demarking it's territory. The distance horizontally/vertically between these lines is a Triday, or the distance a human can travel via a brisk walk, with camping/sleeping time in 3 days (about 10 hours/day, a half day). The Triday is also the distance a magic carpet travelling at comfortable cruising speeds (due to wind resistance upon passengers) can travel in a full day (10 hours with rest stops/camping). Typically, on a trail a horse can cover a Triday in 2 days (with rest and sleep).
Please note that all representations of Oorstemoth are approximate. These representations have been approved by the Oorstemothian government. Approval records are on file with the webmaster.
