Default Original Ogre map: are the craters and ridges distributed according to a pattern?

Or were they put down by feel? Apart from the two craters on the edges, those were obviously put there to mark a line.

Guess that is a question for Mr. Jackson. There are several straight line paths without craters, but not regularly spaced that I see. Maybe we have been looking right at a secret message from the Illuminati all these decades.

Isnít the crater line part of the initial setup conditions in the basic scenario?

They were put down by feel, and then changed a bit in early playtesting to keep a fairly uniform degree of blockage across the map, but except for the two marker craters at the edge, there was no pattern.

Thanks SJ! The GEV map I imagine was more intentionally arranged.

Putting the map upside down, you can connect the craters and drawn a fairly decent pyramid.

The eye is offcenter, however. There must be a meaning but what ?

The 3 craters on the left and right of the pyramid probably spell 'S' and 'J'

This leave are a couple craters unconnected ... what is their secret ?
