I'll take a crack at both of those. Also, I have submitted nine maps to CF so far and once they are posted, there will be some extra info for the very subjects you are asking about, since one map is of Bissel and the other is of the Bright Desert. Each map has the location you asked about marked on it, although they are at roughly 1/2 the scale of the Darlene maps.
Now as for your questions:
1. Pelalk: I would place this in Hex F5 65, near the middle of the hex.
2. Rary's Tower: This one is in the Brass Hills, at V3 91, right above where it joins with Hex V3 92.
Let me know if anyone sees a flaw in my plotting. Also, if you have any other locations you want to know about, don't hesitate to ask, either here or by PM.
Hope that helps! _________________ <div>Braggi, Swain and Varlet at Large<br /></div>
I'm nearly done converting the Darlene map to a fully compatable post-war map at the same scale. Just needed those 2 locales and need to finish up labelling the cities and different terrains of the western 1/2 of the Flanaess. Prolly will be submitting it tomorrow.
It's been a big project, but I hope to bridge the gap bewteen the old 'hawkers and new 'hawkers with it by submitting it to CF! Then we'll all be on the same page when quoting coordinates. I'm sure anybody that is relatively new in to the setting in 'hawk terms and any grognard playing in the post war era will really dig it.
As I stated above though, it is a post war map much like the one that comes with the LGG, but to Darlene scale and coordinates.
As it stands now in .bmp it's 31.3 Mbs. Unfortunately .bmp is the only supported image type of the primitive hexmapper I'm using. Hopefully, once I'm finished and convert it to jpg or similiar it will drop to around 3 Mbs without losing too much resolution! Eitherway, I think most people will find it very useful and the look isn't appaling by any means. _________________ Kneel before me, or you shall be KNELT!
Just curious, what is the software you use to create maps like that for the computer anyway. I have been wanting to do that for my home campaign but don't even know where to begin. I don't really care much for the Campaign Cartographer application at all. Any suggestions?

For mapping, I use Core Rules 2 and Expansion. It came with a default mapping program that had three modes: Outdoor, city and dungeon. (The expansion added an indoor mode as well.)
The mapper is really simple to use, but that also means it has limited selection for terrains and objects. so, sometimes you have to be creative. The main reason it grabbed me is because the overland output looks a lot like the Darlenes in style and it is fairly easy on the eyes.
The main problem with the program is that it has no "output to bmp or jpeg" function. So, to copy a finished map you have to do a screen shot using the Print Screen key, then drop the image into a paint program or graphics editor. Then you have to crop out the junk you don't want and finally, if its a big map, overlay the pieces to get a finished image.
Sorry for the mini-lecture, but you did ask.
