For the Threshold Magazine #23 and #24 I made this 1-mile-hex map of the Southeast region of Karameikos, otherwise known as the Dymrak Forest.

Readjusted slightly after communication/advice of Simone Neri/Zendrolion abiout the Karameikan Thyatian family holds. adding Estate borders and Labels, Castles/Keeps where needed and Relocated Kallergan to the right location.

After the discovery of the great discrepancies between the X1 6mile hex coastline and the Gaz1 8 mile hex coastline, had to make a slight, yet important repair in the SW- region of the map.

17-10-19 Restored several minor flaws.
