Glantri, 8 miles per hexby Thorfinn Tait
Replica of GAZ3 poster map, 8 miles per hex by Thorf, replica map 1 February 2016; original colours map July 2008
The poster map of Glantri in GAZ3 was highly developed in its first instance. This is no surprise when you consider the book’s author: Bruce Heard. I think that Bruce was responsible for more of Mystara’s hex maps than most of us may realise, but we can be assured that this one was all his design.
It’s an iconic map for Mystara, full of detail and wonder, the favourite of many a fan. Let’s take a moment to savour it once more in all its glory.

Notes on GAZ3
Notes on GAZ12
- Colossus Mounts - “The Colossus Mounts to the west [of Ethengar] form the border with Glantri. The clouds that constantly obscure the highest peaks make measuring their exact height impossible, but they are believed to be at least 25,000 feet high. The Colossus Mounts form an almost impenetrable barrier into the Principalities of Glantri.” (GAZ12 DM's Guide page 6a)

About Replica Maps
Unlike Updated maps, Replica maps are exact (or sometimes colourised) replicas of primary source maps. These source maps form the main source material of the Atlas of Mystara, from which all of the updated maps are made. Put simply:
- Replica maps present the world of Mystara as the original source materials depict it, warts and all. No attempt has been made to fix errors of any kind — even typos. Replica maps are always marked as such on this site.
- Updated maps present the Atlas of Mystara‘s consistent view of the world, with all errors, alignment issues, and so on fixed. Anything not marked as a replica map is an updated map.
