This scenario is a geographically accurate BLANK MAP of the historic Lake Texcoco area, including Lake Xaltocan, Lake Texcoco, Lake Xochimilco, and Lake Chalco, at about the time of the pinnacle of the Aztec Empire.
For more information on the area, check out the Wiki entry. The lakes were drained as Mexico city grew in size. They are no longer present.
This map is intended for use in historical scenarios, campaigns, adventure RPG, and Earth-style free for all play. The map is totally blank; add whatever units, buildings, and terrains you like.
Several Meso-American pyramids are placed on the map, marking the locations of real-life cities and pyramids. Stone houses mark the locations of nearby villages and smaller towns.
Created originally to support the forthcoming Texcoco RPG campaign, it also works for a variety of other historical adventures. Of note, the ancient city of Tula is about half a screen north of the upper border of the map. The famous volcano Popocatepetl is about half a screen south of the lower border of the map. You can bend geography a little bit and add in these for a dramatic effect.
