Faerun Map Alterations [RPG]

This is more for my personal archiving purposes (i.e., so I can find it again someday in the future!) then anything I expect people to read: a list of alterations I've made to the Forgotten Realms map of Faerun during past campaigns (including: the Night Below, Jhaeman's adventures in the Moonsea, the Royal Karameikan Fist Adventuring Company adventures run by Steve, and more).  It doesn't include any changes from the currently-ongoing Startop Mountain campaign.  I have additional information on the added villages in a "City Packet" (which I know about) and other additions in a "Landmarks Packet" (the location of which I need to track down), but all alterations are noted on hand-copied maps.
