The Ghyll's Where Is Where is an attempt at establishing geographical facts about our world; it does not record other supplementary facts. For example, it records that the Evesque Valley is well-irrigated (and therefore must have plenty of streams), but it does not record that it used to play host to Aelfants. The latest most authoritative map is included inline below.

Latest Authoritative Ghyll Map

Scale: 1 square = 1 lele

Note, this map is based on the plain-ASCII version (included at the bottom of this page). Due to the scale and the density of known Ghyll, some work is planned to convert the ASCII map into a visual map created by Dundjinni or even Inkscape so that it'll be easier to read and understand. We can't guarantee this will ever happen, but Morbus Iff has expressed interest in doing so. Editing the raw ASCII map DOES NOT regenerate the following easier-to-read thumbnail, so only do so if you've previously aroused Morbus' ire.

An ASCII map updated as far as the end of Round 1 from Morbus Iff.

No Longer Authoritative Ghyll Maps

There have been multiple attempts at making a map of known Ghyll, some unfinished, some stylized, some totally and laughably inaccurate. We've included them all below for historical reference, but be sure to base your facts on the authoritative version above.

  1. The first computer-drawn map from Sean B. Palmer.
  2. A stylized and more fleshed out attempt from Doctor Phineas Crank.
