Got my copy! It looks great though I’m disappointed the maps were not updated/redrawn. The ones in volumes 1 and 2 are much “cleaner”. Was there a reason for not doing this?

Hi Paradox5,

Thanks for asking. When we were deciding what to revise/update, we had to choose where to put our limited resources/money, and we ended up focusing on the booklists, coloring pages, craft templates, board games, paper dolls, review cards, etc, as we felt that the existing ones just weren't up to our 2020 standard. So we put our efforts there.

The maps were, we felt, good enough. But you're right that the Volume 1 & 2 maps are superior.

Excited about this!

Any chance in the future of a revision of Volume I that would deal with some of these historical errors?

We are planning an update to Volume 1, but it wouldn't be for at least 2 years. Stay tuned for updates. And yes, we'll be going through it with a fine-toothed comb to correct anything that needs correcting. Thanks!
