While still in full-on Gamer ADD mode because of this gorgeous little package, I stumbled across this map via the internet:
- It depicts part of the map provided with the SWLP.
- According to the scale of this map the distance between Darnagal and Potter's Field is about 50 miles.
To put this in context, I looked up my old stomping ground on Google Maps and planned a trip from the Boston Convention Center in downtown Boston to Fenway Park. This morning, the fastest route was 7.7 miles. If we did to Boston what Frog God Games has done to their world, that distance would now be 46.2 miles. A trip of about 17 minutes is ballooned to a trip of over an hour. At that distance, the Boston Red Sox really aren't in Boston anymore.
I have no issue with Frog God Games trying to make their world much bigger than what it has been is the past, but not only does it make the map provided in the SWLP useless, it also radically changes the material previously provided by Necromancer Games and Frog God Games. If I ever wanted to run Shades of Gray, for example, I would either have to ditch the map from the SWLP or re-write significant portions of the adventure to fit the new scale.
Or, as I mentioned in my previous post, I can just drop the '0' from the '50' and use the map as it was originally designed.
