Fonts of Mystara’s Maps

Over the decade and a half and more of Mystara’s official publication, a large selection of fonts were chosen for use in the setting’s maps. This appendix aims to catalogue and present examples of their use, for fun as well as for future reference.

Note that only appearances of fonts on geographic maps — those within the scope of the Atlas of Mystara — are taken into account here. Essentially, this is a map-focused version of my previous Mystara Font FAQ.

Each font is presented as a plate, with the name and dates used in the top left; the products whose maps used the font in the top right; samples mostly drawn from actual usages in maps at the bottom left; and a short commentary at the bottom right.

Fonts are presented in roughly chronological order of appearance.
