As Matt Ryan and I continue to work on the Boldhome foldout map for the Sartar boxed set, we’ve made a few tweaks based on Greg’s notes. Greg really insisted that the East Pocket extended east beyond (and above) the city wall, with views of the Killard Vale, and he sketched that out a number of times. I think we finally captured that – and the strangeness that are the Pockets, in this version of the map. Both Matt and I are now really desperate to go to Boldhome. Claudia not so much as she fears the heights and cliffs would get to her!
Although I have already mentioned Petra and Mesa Verde as sources of inspiration, other good visual inspirations are Machu Picchu (for the heights) and some of the Etruscan cliffside tombs.
Most of Boldhome’s grain comes from the Killard Vale. Most of its meat comes from Prax. The view of the Killard Vale and out to Prax from the East Pocket is unparalleled!
