Yeah, I've had that problem.  I've been working off a printout for
simplicity, but I've scribbled on it and it wasn't very good to start off
with, so some of the stuff has been, well, guesswork :))  Burning ash
wastes, good!

That would be fine, but Mandor has already got Behran, Filas and Hamil as
elven territory, and that puts Dethzael on the borders of human, elf and
troll territory - not exactly remote!

Down in Nabor Thaan, the Orcs have got to cross the sea of tailwind and
there won't be many people able to cross the Black Waste from the north of
Voran, so it's probably one of the most remote spots on Majik.  And Nabor
Thaan has a kind of mysticism about it.  If you want the Necrolytes to be
hard to find, I'd stick them here.  If you want them to be easy to find, or
if having them near your temple is important, put them in the mountains of

Are the necrolytes a "secret race," for people to discover as they play, or
are people going to know where they are from the beginning?  If they're
secret, when I do the descs I can put "an atmosphere of forboding" on
whatever area you choose :)))
