The Migration Routes of the Suel and Baklunish Empires

Last time we looked at the actual size of the Baklunish and Suel empires (see Where were the Suel and Baklunish Empires Located? for more); and this time I would like to look at the migration routes of the two empires as they moved east. Using the empire maps I created last time and the migration map from the Living Greyhawk Gazetteer (pg 4) I created the following:

Now there are a couple of reasons that I did this. First, and foremost, I like being able to see clearly where each group went. While the original map showed their migratory routes I tended to glaze over which went where and occasionally ended up flipping who was in each group. By coloring their routes this issue was alleviated. The second reason why I did this was it allowed me to see where their ruins might be located as they moved across the eastern continent.

It’s that second concern – ruins – that really occupies my imagination. Being able to describe which ruins my players are likely to encounter as they move their way around the Nyr Dyv is something that I really find useful for my own games as I tend to have people in and around Dyvers on a regular basis so being able to drop in Suel ruins around them is a really good thing for my games.

The question then becomes: what do these ruins actually look like?
