Question on community use map


Lost Omens Products


I began marking my Golarion community use map with information on where different races and tribes are located within the Mwangi Expanse based on the information from the Sargava book and Heart of the Jungle. I recently read a post about someone asking for a similar idea with location of races marked throughout the world. Can I post an edited version of the community use map if it uses information from another source? Thanks

So if you make a new version of the map that doesn't look utilize our cartography (other than as a reference), you can post that.

For a specific example, you could take our map into Photoshop, put it on a background layer, draw your own version of the map over top of it, add all the tags you want, then delete the layer with our map, and be good to go.


OK, Thanks Vic for helping me understand how that works!
