    Question Scale of the Darlene Greyhawk Map

    I was contemplating working on some city maps for certain area's based on the Greyhawk map by darlene, but I couldn't figure out for the life of me what the scale per hex was on this map.

    If anyone has a clue as to it's scale, I would love to know.

    Thanks in advance!

    If I remeber correctly, the scale is 20 or 10 leagues, yeah, not miles.

    I'll check when I get home to let you know.

    Never use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice!

    That's fantastic.
    I'll take a look at some other sourcebooks, see if I can find any documentation that discusses overland travel, or geographic sizes. I figure if the sourcebooks discuss things in terms of miles, or anything else, than the associated/included map would be based on the same type of measurement.

    Edit: Reading the description of Ull in the 1983 World of Greyhawk Boxed Set, it describes the area as "over 90,000 square leagues," so in the very least you're right about what kind of measurement.

    Edit #2: Well, I found the key to the Darlene map provided by the Glossography, but it doesn't specify the dimensions per hex.

    New information. According to page 18 of the Glossography, each hex is 10 leagues, 30 miles.

    Thanks for leading me in the right direction, NeonKnight.
