    My question is whether (or how much of) this map was fully envisioned in 1981, when Isle of Dread introduced the Known World.

      I’m reasonably sure the answer is none at all.

      Frank Mentzer provided the world map a few years later, and it seems very likely that he shoehorned the Known World map into it at that point.

      Aside from the timing, the latitudes also point to this being the case, as Mentzer’s map places the southern coast of the Known World at about 25°N, which seems far too far south.

      My 2016 model pushed the countries to roughly match the latitudes given on TM1, so the southern coasts of the Known World are just above 30; that’s still further south than I’d like, but there’s not much else we can do to fix this.

    The other two(?)* maps from “The Once and Future Earth” could be used for the maps of the parallel Mystaras mentioned in CM6: Where Chaos Reigns.

    *(Is there another page of paleo maps in that book?)

    Maybe the next older map (250mya) for the world map of Aelos.
