That is an old map that was primarily guesswork based on the information available at the time. Black Dragon Island is not on it because the location wasn't known. BDI is located off the Southeast coast of the Northern continent.

This is not an official map, so this is just an island, added so the sea doesn't look so empty.

I'd like to think it's not too far off Kanakan. Wine and good food. A match made in suikoheaven!

If you believe this map, although I'm not completely sure of its origins, it shows the location of BD island to be off the coast of, and directly south west of, the Republic of Tinto. I'm pretty sure this map is canon although I can't remember why, but I think it was included in an artbook for one of the games. Anyway, if anyone else can verify it, or knows of the maps origins then let me know! Cheers. :D

I remember seeing this awhile back, also not sure of its origin. Most likely all spec though. Looks cool!

They had such an extensive map for the SUikoden world? Holy crap, they planned plenty of future games, didn't they?

Really? I was pretty sure this is also fanmade, but just better.

The map outline comes from the DVD History of Genso Suikoden that came with pre-orders of Suikoden V in Japan. Then someone has approximated borders for the countries.

This is a fan made map. But, supposedly, the maker(s) of this map did a lot of research from the games and publications to decide what is where.
