South West Sartar Map (page 29)
In the Colymar Clans map in the GM Map Pack it seems like the Balmyr might be missing. They lost land to the Enjossi in 1476 so I thought perhaps they would appear on this map. But perhaps now they are entirely much further to the south (of the Royal Road), per p.29 of Pegasus Plateau.
They are just not labeled on the map:
Hill Pearl Inn (north of the Road) is a Balmyr inn. It appears to be misspelled as Hill Pear in the Pegasus Plateau map.
Hill Pear (village): This Balmyr village is surrounded by orchards, mainly pears and walnuts. It has white stone walls that make it look like pearl nestled in the hills. The Hill Pearl Inn is located near the village.From the forthcoming Sartar book

Streamside (page 38)
I’m not sure if this is an error or intentional but Londros (Sartar maps recently posted by Jeff on FB) and Streamside (Pegasus Plateau) appear to be the same place
Londros (village): Also called Streamside, this village is the main settlement of the Zethnoring Clan of the Locaem Tribe.From the forthcoming Sartar book

Gloomwillow’s Hollow (pages 84-112)
Herongreen Wall (page 87)
It’s not clear to me either where the Herongreen Wall is. Could you show it on a map?
See the map below
What the Characters Know (page 104)
At the end of the Ghost road, they must make a choice. Follow the Dawn Road’s safer path to the old wall (page 106) or take the Dusk Road and turn left at the fallen tree (page 106).
Note that there is no river, so Part One: Over the River, should read as Part One: On the Road
Note that the maps were made before work had started on the master map which can be found in the RuneQuest starter set. Below is an annotated version of that map with turn offs and approximate path through the woods.
