Other Original Published Maps of Gor

Creating a new illustrated map of Gor from scratch involved research, and the study of other maps that were available.  Many other maps found online are mostly transformed into color or image manipulated from a copy of an original map.  During our research on the geography of Gor, we found four distinct major geographical interpretations on the land of Gor. These were created by Erhard Ringer, Marcus of Ar, Inukshuk and Xerxex.

These maps are all more than 10 years old.  Erhard Ringer's map can be found in print.  Original web sources for the maps for Marcus of Ar, Inukshuk and Xerxes are no longer accessible as of January 2017. A copy of these maps are intentionally included here to acknowledge its creators, to provide access to learners of Gor, and to help preserve what may be lost in the internet.
