I've observed that I only seem to tm direction from a map when it says I reassess my position on the map (or whatever the exact message is; I don't have a map on me at the moment to check. I don't know if this is really a requirement, though, or just coincidence. --Ilde 01:13, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

EDIT: I guess there's more to it than that. A recent log:

get ramtops maps from bag
You get an old Ramtops map and a large Ramtops map from a pocket in the leather carryall.
study old ramtops map
You study the old Ramtops map and estimate that the Skund Forest is approximately five hundred miles to the west, the Carrack Mountains are about four hundred and fifty miles to the west, Ohulan-Cutash is very close to the west, Lancre Town is approximately sixty miles to the east and the Hub is roughly one thousand miles to the east.

You feel your understanding of maps has improved.

You study the large Ramtops map and estimate that the Skund Forest is roughly five hundred miles to the southwest, the Carrack Mountains are about four hundred and fifty miles to the west, Ohulan-Cutash is very close to the west, Lancre Town is roughly ninety miles to the east, Mad Stoat is close to eighty miles to the east, Brass Neck is more or less one hundred miles to the east, Bad Ass is about one hundred miles to the east, Slippery Hollow is about one hundred miles to the east, Razorback is about one hundred miles to the east, Slice is around one hundred miles to the east, Creel Springs is close to one hundred miles to the east, Blackglass is more or less one hundred miles to the east, Copperhead is approximately one hundred miles to the east, Mad Wolf is close to one hundred miles to the east, Feruss is close to one hundred miles to the east, Powderknife is roughly one hundred miles to the east, Hangdog is about one hundred miles to the east and the Hub is close to one thousand miles to the east.

It does seem that I got a tm from studying the same map again, without moving at all--certainly without reorienting myself. Not sure if it was counted differently somehow because I studied multiple maps at once the second time, or what. --Ilde 23:47, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
