Alright, I'm back. Again... Let's get this thread back on trail, 'kay?
To clarify things a bit, here's where we are currently:
Even though the thread started as a simple list of the districts in the City, it has since expanded into a full-scale map-project.
I think first and foremost, we should do a completely canon map, of which anyone can then derive/add to a map of their liking. If we leave/alter some crucial evidence behind, someone will complain, and the map wont serve the full of the community.
Since Krypt tipped in, it has been clear that the dev-team didn't stick to the map 100% of the time. This can be seen from the earlier inconsistencies too. So, all we can do is try to sticth the thing as best we can, and as a last resort as I've suggested already, make a few 'alternatives' visible in the end-product (.pdf layers that show where for example Garrett's home could be located).
The speculations on location-names will be a mere frosting on the cake (an optional "frosting"-layer in the .pdf), if they wont interfere with the actual canon.
So, back to the map, then.
str8g8: I meant the second-latest map , the one just before you dropped Ambush! down to the docks.
I think we are again in a turning point here. All the evidence might atlast be present, and the most obvious intepretations/versions have been discovered. To find out which version(s) plays out the best, we need a full-scale representation of each, taking all the evidence into account.
If we'd have a raw map with all the district/street/house -names and the connections between places (Newmarket-Shalebridge connection from the peasant conversation for ex.), then everyone could show their versions of the map.
This one seems to be in small, transferrable bits, but lacks some of the latest additions.
What do you think? After this we could atlast start fine-tuning the map, and decide how to represent it. For example, we could add the aforementioned speculations layer and the alternatives layers, with due explanations on each case, and fan-mission layer that then shows where each thought their areas would be.
EDIT: I think MorbusG hit the spot better than I did in his above post. We do what we can, and people use it as they please. Atleast we did something they can build their own work upon.
