For my adventures in AA2 and 3 I just did it by hand on a hex grid and scanned in.

JD did his own maps, and I don't know how he did them.

I found and did a minimal test of this

https://www.hexographer.com/free-version/

You can at least export to PNG by number of hexes per inch (at 300dpi)

Here is a quick attempt to recreate the map with some additional gimp'ing to remove colors.

That's great!
I actually wouldn't mind just using the version you've posted if that's alright, I think it looks great. I've been doing some versions by hand on hex paper to try an upload them later. Which would be more appropriate?

Sure, feel free to use this.

I saw Solo recently posted some map icons as well. That is another alternative to look into.

In any case, it's never too late to update later if something even better comes along.

Here's R6. Changes include the map borgar created and a correction to the hex size listed under Exploring the Red Weald
