  When I said that, I did not mean maps of every wilderness or 
mountainous area in your game. I was thinking of the city maps and such! 
It is easier to remove a few secret store rooms than it is to draw up a 
street/shop map for every city you have. Especially in the mud I work 
for, which has 10+ cities, all over 500 rooms each...
