This new map idea would be loosely based on the Washington state and Montana border region. To keep this post simple, I will talk about the map in halfs and quadrants.
The Eastern half of the map is hilly/mountainous with thick forests while the Western half is far less hilly and flat in some areas with less trees. A river flows East to West and runs down the mountains via waterfalls and into a river that cuts the map in half.
The Northeast quadrant places of note would be a small mountain town and a logging operation that just started before the zombies showed up. There are some caves and abandoned mines in the area. A large makeshift abandoned survivor camp is in the area. It could be a Homesite or a zombie filled treasure trove.
The Southeast quadrant places of note would be a mountain resort town next to a lake. Cabins and campsites dot the area outside of the town in this quadrant.
The Southwest quadrant is mostly farmland with 1 or 2 rural towns.
The Northwest quadrant is entirely one big town.
