The Mapper Market: Yes, We Have Sextants. Stop Giggling.

Not only do I enjoy these little posts by Charles – I also enjoy reading the comments under them – bantering of the best kind 👍😄

Welcome to the most popular mapper store on this block of the city.  Hey, this is a long street and there are five others, so don’t roll your eyes about it. We worked hard for that reputation. Now, you must be setting out to become a mapper. I assume you have the correct paperwork, which proves you went through the correct training? The forgery detection spell says you’re good, so congrats on making it through your apprenticeship and studies. Did you have a field teacher or a book teacher? Ouch, the field ones are always the toughest ones.  That means you’ll be needing some durable equipment.

First thing we need to get you is a blank map book and a case bundle.  Believe it or not, we have a variety of these things.  You can go with the non-magical types, but those can be stolen and destroyed…

  1. Thanks again for a heads-up – I jumped across and thoroughly enjoyed the post. I first learned about sextants reading Arthur Ransome’s wonderful ‘Swallows and Amazons’ series as a kid! (I am convinced you could just about learn how to sail from reading those…)
