Tatooine Hexcrawl

An early May the 4th gift.

Map snatched from the pages of Starlog's Star Wars Technical Manual (Vol 1).

To date I'm not entirely certain how to scale this. Going with the traditional 6-mile hex shouldn't be an issue.

  1. The equatorial circumference of Tatooine is about 20,420 miles. If that map is most of the planet those are some big hexes.

    1. I assumed that the area depicted is just a small region of the planet.

    2. Anchorhed andToshe Station llook to be within 10 or so kilometers of each other according to this map: http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130826212315/starwars/images/b/ba/Tatooine_Map.png. So te hexes on the map here look to be 12 miles or so by that one measure.

  2. It might just be the explored/settled parts of the world. But I rather like the notion that Tattooine is this large expanse of... nothing.

    1. Right, similar to Arrakis/Dune (which Tatooine was loosely patterned after).

    1. I've got that issue and Coruscant ain't in it. Starlog is back online though...

  4. Tosche Station is in Anchorhead so presumably the dots are representative of particular locations rather than being accurate.

    I'd think these would be at least 24m/40km hexes: according to Wookiepedia, it's about 80km from Anchorhead to Mos Eisley, and it's only a little over 2 hexes.

    This would make the map the same scale as the map of the Known World (Mystara) from the Mentzer Expert set.
