The Cartographers’ Guild is a forum created by and for map makers and aficionados, a place where every aspect of cartography can be admired, examined, learned, and discussed. Our membership consists of professional designers and artists, hobbyists, and amateurs—all are welcome to join and participate in the quest for cartographic skill and knowledge.
Although we specialize in maps of fictional realms, as commonly used in both novels and games (both tabletop and role-playing), many Guild members are also proficient in historical and contemporary maps. Likewise, we specialize in computer-assisted cartography (such as with GIMP, Adobe apps, Campaign Cartographer, Dundjinni, etc.), although many members here also have interest in maps drafted by hand.

Nador Maps 20-24 show the entirety of Tal, the great south continent of the world of Nador. Map 20 shows the northern part of the continent. Map 20 connects to the western edge of Map 21 and to the northern edge of Map 22.
I sketched Tal in the mid-1980s. The Tal maps have a different scale than the Pham maps. One inch on the Tal map represents much more than 40 miles, but I never really decided how much. Since the Tal was created inadvertently when the Musid ripped the Evil Sibling Maza out of her hellish fortress, tearing Tal from Pham, Tal must be considerably narrower (east to west) than Pham, so maybe 1" = 100 miles.
