Map Monday: Editable Star Wars Galaxy by Xanthoc

Although the final product is important for Map Monday, sometimes the base map alternate cartographers use is just as worthy for recognition. For example, take this editable map of the Star Wars galaxy by Xanthoc:
Based on a map by rvbomally (author of "Ad Astra Per Aspera" and previously featured on Map Monday), this map provides a starting point for alternate historians who wish to ask a what if question in the Star Wars universe, such as what if Luke Skywalker had failed to destroy the first Death Star? This map is a strong reminder that alternate histories don't just have to be limited to our own histories. Fictional histories from pop-culture are also fair game and can be a lot of fun to create.

No honorable mentions this week. If you want to submit a map for the next Map Monday, email me at ahwupdate at gmail dot com with your map attached and a brief description in the body of the email.
