Great job with the map to you and anyone else who contributed. I used the old map as a bookmark while reading Captain's Fury. I appreciate not having to go thru the 12 pages in the old thread.

thanks

I thought I'd post the links everytime I commented, so that everyone doesn't have to search through the whole thread for them.
I'm some trouble with the distances on the Mastings map.
1. Foundersport to Vaucusguard is 30 miles   From CaF pg 58
2. Vaucusguard to Mastings is 100 miles       From CaF pg 59
3. Fellcove is very close to Mastings
4. It takes approx 10 weeks for the legion to march from the Elinarch to Mastings in a straight line without fury crafted roads.
It just seems like the Elinarch is farther away from Foundersport then the map shows. If I move Mastings etc. closer to Vaucusguard then it shouldn't take ten weeks for the legion to march to Mastings unless Elinarch is farther away. Am I making any sense?

You do, however during CuF Tavi managed to get to Founderport far too quickly for there to be much of a distance. The distance from the Elinarch to Mastings doesn't seem to be more than 150 or so miles which means they probably stayed extensive periods of times at each strong point to pacify the countryside.

I think that the correct thought would be it takes 10 weeks to fight from the Elinarch to Mastings.

Ok. I'll fix the Mastings map and move the Elinarch closer to Foundersport and then post the new id on flicker when I'm done.
I'll also post the black and white version of Alera that I've been working on. It has a somewhat different shape than the current Map of Alera. The new shape makes a little more sense to me I think, but I'm sure it will be full of holes when you guys are done shooting at it. :)

I'm hoping that Jim is going to take a look at the maps and provide us with some direction. I just saw a few comments from him in other threads :)
Honest, I'll take no offense whatever. In fact, I'd welcome it.

When Kalarus took hostages, who did he take (I don't have my books right now)? Because he needed to do so to stop two High Lords from interfereing, meaning that they would have been of strategic help to Ceres, if IRC.

They were Atticus and Placida. Placida is just north of Ceres and Attica is east of Kalare and in position to prevent Kalare's forces from reaching Alera Imperia assuming Kalare's tactical plan for Ceres succeeded.

I reread CaF for the 5th or 6th time. Right at the end, after Bernard and Amara are flying home to the Calderon Valley, the first stop is a stay at an inn in Attica, which is one days flight from Kalare (or what used to be Kalare).
So I've moved Attica to the west of the capitol.

Nice find. I had considered proposing just that, but I only had suspicions. During FoC, when Amara escapes the "renegade" legion which pretends to belong to Atticus, she flies east to the Gaul. Which would make it reasonable to assume that Atticus' lands are west of the Gaul.
