That’s a different East Gate from the one mentioned in KK. Take a look at the clearer maps on the first pages of this thread. Karak Varn is on there.

Ah, thanks Pancho, that clears it up... You too Anderas.
What about Kalos? I think I read a while back that this doesn't appear on the Warhammer map either. Is there a consensus as to where this fallen city lies?

I’ve heard some say that Kalos and Mordheim could be the same city, just going by different names. But honestly I don’t think there is any big clues leading to a concensus.

clmckay proposed to use the city down there in the waste, R16.

The place from the quest book does not exist on the map. I think that clmckay's proposal is a good one.

Yeah, I also agree with having Kalos be that city down there. Not Mordheim, but Morgheim. I just say that Kalos is the Witch Lord's underground lair beneath the ruined city.

Wallydubs, if it helps, the links in my signature lead you to a thread where I'm working out the locations for my game based on actual Wahammer locations. The other one is my edited quest books, some of which add a little bit of story and make very minor edits to locations.

Decided to sit down and work out locations for The Plague of Zombies and The Frozen Horror.

I've decided to place The Plague of Zombies in caverns in the highlands north of Heideck in Averland.

For The Frozen Horror, I settled on Ice Mountain being located within the Cyberian Range, where the World's Edge Mountains meet the Goromadny Mountains. Xanon Pass branches off of High Pass, leading north into the Cyberian Range. I may revisit this one later when I get to A Growl of Thunder since it labels the barbarian's tribe as Norscan, but it works well enough for me for now.

Great thread. I've been thinking for a while now that I'd like to try and create a 3D interactive world based off of the HQ game and expansions. The info in these posts is an awesome start to putting it together. That huge WH map linked further back is also a great resource - it provides some great terrain detail which can be used to build the map.

It's unfortunate that there wasn't some more effort put into the world detail from the get go as it would have been good to pinpoint all of these locations.

This set is great! I printed out a few maps and reading the questbooks, to see how and where this all plays out. :)

I read there are some who do overlandquesting here, is there a thread somewhere that describes how you do it? I like the idea

(Link here if you're interested: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/akx9intxkuo5 ... 2kqva?dl=0) I'm using them to try to figure out locations for every Quest or Quest Pack and have a few so far, though I don't have a proper map to place them on. Some are invented locations based on ideas I've taken from other people, but still near to named locations in the Warhammer world. Some are slightly changed from the original intent (for instance, I can't figure out where a good location for the Inn of Chaos would be that would be a week's march from the nearest human settlement, so it's been changed a bit to fit with my edited version of the quest). I intend to fill this in more as I discover more locations.

My locations so far:

Capital City & Imperial Palace - Altdorf
Mentor's Tower - just south outside of Nuln, overlooking the city

The Maze - Mentor's Tower near Nuln

The Trial - Catacombs of Karev (including Fellmarg's Tomb), south of Nuln
The Rescue of Sir Ragnar - dungeons under Knightskeep near Castle Drakenhof
Lair of the Orc Warlord - stronghold near Zhufbar on the shores of Black Water Lake
Mellar's Maze - near Karak Norn in the Grey Mountains
Prince Magnus' Gold - a hideout south of Kroppenleben in the foothills of the Black Mountains
Legacy of the Orc Warlord - near Ulag's old stronghold close to Black Water
The Lost Wizard/The Stone Hunter - a secret lab in the catacombs under Altdorf
The Fire Mage - beneath Black Fire Crag, a small canyon passage section of Black Fire Pass
Race Against Time - Mound of Krell?
Castle of Mystery - ?
Bastion of Chaos - ?
Barak Tor: Barrow of the Witch Lord - Barak- Tor?
Quest for the Spirit Blade - ?
Return to Barak- Tor - Barak Tor?


Kellar's Keep - part of the underground fortress of Karak-Varn, near Black Fire Pass

Return of the Witch Lord - Kalos, an underground keep under the ruined city of Morgheim

The Plague of Zombies - caverns in the highlands north of Heideck in Averland

The Halls of Durrag-Dol - south of Karak-Kadrin in the World's End Mountains near the source of the River Stir

Inn of Chaos - Inn in Zherdenschlosse, to the west of Durrag-Dol and east of Waldenhof

The Eyes of Chaos - Tombs of the Phalanx in the Vault Mountains?

Against the Ogre Horde - ?

Elf Quest - Mage of the Mirror - Athel Loren

Running the Gauntlet - across the Sea of Claws?

Revenge of the Weather-Man - Keep of the Windmaker?

The Tower of the High Mage - Tarak Mountains?
Crypt of the Necromancer - crypt in a graveyard swamp beyond the Shuddering Forests?
Eyrie of the Storm Master - Dark Mountains?

Lair of the Orc Shaman - outside the Great Gate of Karak Varn in the foothills of the World's Edge Mountains
The Final Conflict - Zargon/Morcar's Citadel of Darkness?

Barbarian Quest - The Frozen Horror - Ice Mountain is located within the Cyberian Range, where the World's Edge Mountains meet the Goromadny Mountains. Xanon Pass branches off of High Pass, leading north into the Cyberian Range

Advanced Quest: The Dark Company - sewers under the Old City portion of Altdorf

A Growl of Thunder - ?
