Rum Skull- a landmark that existed off the coast of a Lost City near Gran Granada. Had to look at the old threads to find that there can be more than one of a damn landmark.

Took way too long. But I was blessed with really easy maps with settlements as landmarks after that so...

Yes, landmarks are frequently used twice, even in the same general area. If you see landmarks different than what are on the map that shows you that you are in the wrong area. It takes experience to get good.

Duke Roland is the king of Orienteering, he has special knowledge of what it means to walk through some of the monuments.

I feel like they WAY overdid the geysers. it's stupid to have them as a landmark when there are a quadzillion ones that arent part of the map.

Btw, I had the thing where every single Lost City turned out to be a mile away from eachother.Could I have found them without the maps if I had known that?

I suspect that you need at least a piece of a lost city map to be able to find said city.

They are not generated until a new map is made.
