Tucked away in one of the corners of the Sundered Empire on the far northwest of Oerik is an island called Thalos. When I did my Beyond the Flanaess series of posts a few years ago, I naturally included it, but recently there’s been a request to show the full-size version because someone is thinking about setting a campaign there.

As an impulsive whim of beneficence has overtaken me (quite alien to my normal nature as a Dungeon Master), I have decided to put together a composite map from the earlier ones, and post it here at full size. It’s not a perfect map, because I just superimposed one atop another (you can probably see where, where the coast line sort of disappears), but it’s serviceable. If I ever do the area in detail, it’ll certainly get redone.

I’m not going to get into the history of the place. Those with access to the Chainmail setting know it all already, and a quick Google search of “Thalos Chainmail” will get most of the broad strokes to everyone else. Part of the problem is that my own focus is on CY 576 at the moment, and Chainmail takes place years later. But it will be interesting to explore what the place looks like before the death of Stratis, won’t it…?
