- Do you know good archives for maps?

- Is there any easy and free online tool on the internet, which allows to create maps from geological data?

- Which one do you use?
Oooh. Considering that Columbus's entry comes right at the end of the 15th century, you may have to rely on early 16th. There's not likely to be detailed anything from the period, if only because it was still being mapped out.

(That said, I would love to be proved wrong!)

Over the course of the last year or two I've done a fair amount of research into Age of Sail rpgs. If you can find a copy, I highly recommend Run Out the Guns by ICE. In my opinion, it has set the benchmark for pirate rpgs.
Happily RPGing since 1976.
