    We once believed the stone maps, relics of some ancient people, were wrong. The distances and shapes and positions did not match the world we had measured, and in our arrogance, we did not consider the movement of time. We were the ones who were wrong. The world changes, and even the most sturdy mountain is drifting on a sea of molten lava. We once believed this was all too slow to bother our work. Of course our maps would be good for ten thousand years! Then the Shattering happened, and the world changed again, powerful sorcery tore apart coasts and smashing mountains together.

    When a map is drawn, it traps a moment in time. The world moves on from that moment. Cities fall, islands sink, mountains rise. Take nothing for granted.

    Here are several maps I have copied from other sources that show some of the profound changes to our geography. I have also provided a key which the symbols and notations I could decipher.

    For more...

    I posted these on our board but forgot to reflect the change here:

    Hint 1 - The FoA are often associated with Wisps.

    Hint 2 - The key does not contain all map symbols.
